Sara - the funny (sad) thing was that I talked for 45 minutes about how stylists always take off more than I want, how I really wanteed long long long hair, how much my hair shrinks when dry (he refused to cut dry even though I requestd it
. He even said "oh yeah, look how long your hair is now when its wet! Wow, you werent kidding! We will only take off a little".
I also took three pictures, and the length I was going for was the Taylor Swift length (evenn though ny curls look nothing like hers) ... He looked at the picsl assured me Taylors curls were aided by a barrel (whatever! I just wanted the length!) blah blah. A fellow curly, massacred me. (ok, now Im gtting dramatic)
Sooooo the suprise is i spent all last night searching here and ytube on how to do a DIY cut and today I DID IT! The difference is hardly noticeable, Im going to shower and let it dry again tomorrow to see what the shrinkage is, and probaboy do another shaping round.
If I wNt a cut ike the one listed

Do I need some shorter layers up top? Or is that a bit scary with 3a-3b ish hair? I am going for volume, I am embracing the big curly thing. I just dont want a big curly pyramid.
