My hair is currently half way down my back and the weather is getting is getting hot....I am looking to cut it short (probably chin or shoulders length)...Any ideas and pics for short, layered curly hair?

combination hair.
2c on top - low elasticity
3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.
fine texture. thin density. A lot of it.
porosity: normal to high.
loves protein and moisture.
BSACV as needed.

products may vary. i'm a PJ.
loving Curl Junkie, Curly Kinks, and AS I Am.
I love the pic britt!!! That is exactly what I am wanting!!! I know I will miss putting my hair in a pony tail, but I am definately going to give short a try. Hopefully I can find someone to do a good job like they did on yours!
I found this pic online when I was looking for some examples for my mom - looks pretty similar to Britt's (which is gorgeous!).

2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Thanks so much guys, esp since that's my 1st post!! It's been a quick entry into Florida's rainy season and we were moving that day so it's not my hairs best, but almost 1yr into being cg I don't complain as much

also, if you search in salons, there is a deva trained person .. I think in the montrose-ish area.
