With a good stylist, the possibilities are almost endless- pixies, bobs... The key is making sure that the stylist really knows how to cut curly hair.
I donated my hair in January, and the cut was done by a traditional stylist, who is excellent, but still uses a traditional wet cut for curly hair. A few months later I saw a local Deva-trained stylist for a trim. It's not as visible in the pics, but the Deva cut (pic on the right) very much caused less triangle head and has been growing out much better than the traditional cut. But I can also say that I did get a ton of compliments in both cuts- several people told me that they liked the curly bob much better than my long hair. i wanna get my hair cut short, good cuts/styles please?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1373378867.406843.jpg

I just posted something similar! Haha. I think chin length would look good on you or maybe even a pixie cut! With your type of hair it would most likely end up looking wavy/straight in a pixie cut.

^^ You look like my hair twin! Mine looks soooo similar at that length! I'm mobile, so can't see your signature--what are your hair properties?

I'm on mobile also.
Fine texture, thick density, normal porosity and elasticity.

Cut it short with layers!! I recently did this because I was sick and tired of my damaged straight ends from an old perm. I have hair just like yours. Be brave, and take that risk of cutting short! Layers help a lot with the triangle hair look so I'm sure it will look great
