Cutting Short

Hello, So I have about 2c/3a hair depending on how I maintain it. I've lately wanted to cut it short like around my shoulders! But apparently everyone has a problem saying things like, " No way, it's going to be a giant puff ball" or " it won't go with you!" It really has bothered me so I was wondering if someone could help me by pointing me to a certain cut and product to work with my hair? THANKS!
I have 3A hair (with 3B parts) and it's just above my shoulders and not a puff ball at all lol.

I'd say go for a short do and rock it! It's your hair and you shouldn't let other people tell you what to do with it
3A with some 3B thrown in. Medium porosity. Medium Thickness. High density.

Do it!!!!! It will be gorgeous. I have 3a hair, and when I did my big chop it wasn't a puffball at all! Your hair will have great volume and it will really encourage your curl pattern. You'll have beautiful, bouncy, healthy curls

Mine is just below my ears (curly), and I don't have a puff ball! I'm 2c/3a. IMO, it's much easier and faster to take care of than longer hair. Plus it's fun!

Honestly you won't be able to stop thinking about it until you do it lol. Just go for it and when you rock it everyone who said it wouldn't will be dumbfounded. Have fun

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.
