Best Cut for fine curly hair?

Can anyone tell me: What's the best kind of haircut for shoulder length, fine curly hair? I had my hair cut with some layers in the front, but there are a few pieces in the back of my head that kind of stick out, and itís driving me nuts! It looks choppy instead of gradually layering. Iíve heard blunt cuts are not good for curly hair, but Iíd really like my hair to be even in the back. Any ideas? See my avatar if you want to know what my hair looks like. I tried to search the forum, but I kept getting an error.

Thanks!

First of all, I love the hair cut you have now. I also have fine curly hair. My hair looks horrible when it is longer than shoulder length. My hairdresser put long layers throughout my hair ( so my hair does not stick up funny). I switch hairdresser after having a very bad experience ( she did not know anything about curly hair). I think if you got a good hairdresser that knows curly hair, she will know the best hairstyle that will work with you. Remember, a hairdresser should work with you, and not against you.
I hope this was helpful.

My hair is fine also, and I have it all one length. My hair is thin due to various health issues, and layering it just makes it thinner. It will look like the bottom layer is almost not even there. So I keep it all one length and I really like it this way. It doesn't keep me from having a nice curl pattern. I just have to separate it really well from the top down, and scrunch all the way to the part. To me, it looks like a waterfall coming down. I like it.
I have fine hair, that's not very dense because of age, medication and thyroid issues. It's not good much longer then chin length--dry. It's fairly similar to your avatar. I wear an inverted, curly bob--it goes in length between my avatar and signature picture. Sometimes the angle between stack and front is more severe then others. If front gets too long, it looks pitiful. I do have a lot of layers, more in summer then in winter.

As a fine-haired curly myself, one thing I learned while hairstylist-shopping is not to let them cut that top layer too thinly. I always get long layers, and I had one disappointing haircut where the stylist cut a light, wispy top layer. For a coarse hair curly (I know one of her other clients), it looks fabulous and the layers all look chunky. For my fine hair though, it resulted in wispy frizz. Like canopy frizz wasn't enough of a problem before the cut! My thought after this was that our fine hairs need more of their friends around them to form curls, otherwise they are on their own and just frizz. It is frustrating that not all stylists understand these kinds of differences.

Good luck!

2C/3A, fine texture, high porosity, medium-low density

For me, desert climate+porous hair+CG=inconsistent results!
Thanks, everyone!

The picture in my avatar is from a few years ago, but I do like how it looks, even if it is a bit short. I've always wanted my hair to grow longer, but it never seems to grow past my shoulders. And my hair is not damanged or anything. I don't color or do any kind of chemical services. Because my hair is fine, I'm wondering whether it would even look good if it were longer. I'm kind of torn between bringing in pictures of curly hair styles I like or asking my stylist what she thinks is best and letting her do her thing...

When I look at my hair from Jan/Feb '08 (in my fotki) it's almost shoulder length and not very "lush" looking. Since I've been wearing it shorter, it looks much fuller. One of the curlies said that I couldn't possibly have "thin" hair last year. Unfortunately, I do.

Your hair sounds exactly like mine. I'll be updating my semi-neglected blog with some pics in the next few days. Look at what's already there and keep an eye out for an update

My hair is fine and can't grow past shoulder length very successfully. I prefer to keep it looking like it has more volume/body by utilizing a curly bob.
