Default To cut or just trim, that's the question! Feel so unstylish!

I finally went curly this summer and haven't looked back! I also haven't cut my hair since August. Right now the longest layer is to my collar bone and the shortest is to the bottom of my ear. Bra strap length when wet in back!

It definitely looked better in some regards in August. It kind of stuck out all over the place in a kazillion different layers, all nicely defined curls and looked stylish. Now it is longer and looks more like "wall of hair." It's at that awkard length, neither long nor short. The very back looks longer because the weight of my hair is making that spot straighter than the rest.

In three weeks I am going to a Devachan trained stylist who flies out to Los Angeles (from NY) every six weeks. He is supposed to be fabulous. Wondering what any of you long time curlies have noticed with hair length and feeling stylish and modern. This will be my first cut as a curly. When I was still laboring with blowdrying it and ironing it, I thought I wanted it super long...now I don't know. Just looking for a little advice from the vets.

Oh, and any specific things to mention to or ask the stylist? He does cut dry and apparently knows his stuff.

Thanks!!!!!

I hear ya Ringletta! I am in the same predicament, sort of. Tomorrow I am going to my annual appointment at Devachan (been doing this for the past three years) and my hair is 3B in long layers.

My curls are finally bra strap length in the back. i am tired of the same style altho I am happy with my hair, if that makes any sense. I was thinking of cutting two inches off length just to have something different?? My DH says no leave the length as does my daughter. I know how you feel! Curls are beautiful but it feels like there's not a lot of style options we have...
Sorry if I wasn't at all helpful, I just know how you feel!

Is there somewhere on this site that would explain how to post pics or do the public fotki thingy? I think it would help for people to see my hair.

I am so torn between shortening it to a curly bob (longer in front) or just biting my lip and letting it continue to grow until May.

just go to the www.fotki.com site and open an acct. it is pretty easy to upload pics. you will download a program to do the uploading --you'll select pics from your computer. first you'll have to take some digi pics of your hair and put them in a folder on your computer. if this makes no sense find a high school kid to help you
