Please describe best haircut

It has taken quite awhile, but my daughter's hair has finally grown out to chin length when dry and shoulder length when wet. Becaue of many medical interventions, her hair had been many different lengths and it took some time for her hair to become fairly even in length. The question that I have (and let me see if I can make sense) is if you were to draw an oval on paper to represent your face how would you draw the basic outline of your hair if it stood straight out from you head? Would the cut be a little similar to a :shag"? I want an easy to maintain style that will help show off her finglets. I am not quite poo-less with her, but we are very lo-poo. melecrystal

Hmmm... I'm bumping for responses because I don't have a good answer. I have only had one hair cut since going natural, and that was done on straight hair. I have to tuck the ends of my hair up while wearing it natural since it is a bit uneven. you can see the difference between straight and "curly" in my siggy. Is her hair still the lenght it is in the picture? Do you want to keep it shorter for low maintenence? Maybe just a nice trim to even it out would be best until it begins to grow more and then you can begin to shape it up from there.

Im not quite sure if I understand your question. I think I do so I found some links for you showing the hair at certain angles and the effects of cutting at certain angles. I hope this helps....

Do you watch Project Runway? There is a woman named Korto, I think. I really like her cut though it is a little more "afro" than I like. My daughter is also inclined to fiddle with her hair if it falls in her face too much. I also like Gloria Reuben's cut even better, I believe. I guess I want a little more of a rounded look because I think her ringlets would show more.

Did jonesybird's sites help any? My hair just hangs different from other curlies so the pyramid did not happen for me. I do think a more rounded cut would help. Im sure if you take her into a nice salon they can help you especailly if she is right there with you.

Also, she was bed ridden until she was 3 so her hair was pretty rubbed off in back. So as it has grown out I have been very careful with it and have also gotten the dead ends and frayed parts trimed off and shaped off. I think she is a good position to get a good shape setting cut. The lady who works with her is very patient with her (due to her premature birth and health issues she is developmentally delayed). DD is very smart, but behind developmentally. She is 9 1/2 and her behaviors are closer to 6 approximately. She doesn't exactly sit still and since she is profoundly deaf it is hard to give her instructions. Her sign language is still limited as a young childs is. I believe our hairstylist can do a good job as long she knows where she is headed so the pictures I got from the web sites should help a lot.
sew-in: hair purchased in a package (AKA as weave) that is sewn into one's own braided hair--as opposed to glued in or some other method
