Not to be a party pooper but I am a 3A and I have taken the same pictures to the stylist for a cut. The unfortunately thing is my hair has never looked like those pictures when it was all said and done with. The cut was what I asked for but it didn't make my hair look very good. My hair is either a huge triangle because I have trouble with volume at the roots or my curls go crazy and I have to actually do something to them like blowdry, curling iron, rollers at the roots, etc. I usually find myself being upset for ever having cut my hair and pull it up everyday. I often find it is more work than longer hair.
