I haven't been on this site in forever, wow. But I was curious what a bunch of other curlies would think about this hairstyle, most people I know like it, but I remember last time I made a change (cut my bangs blunt and straightened them) a lot of people here didn't like that, so I'm just curious.
I uploaded three pictures, one right before I cut it, my most recent picture, and one recently after I cut it and straightened....not a big fan of the straightened one, some guy told my my nose looked huge haha.

I come on here when I want hair advice because if you type in "curly hair" anywhere, all you get is advice on how to curl it. I used to get on here a lot when I was like, 12 or 13 (and first figuring out how to stop straightening my hair without being bullied), so if you happen to see some older posts of mine, shh. No judging.

Well, I love it! Nice job! Very fierce.

I think it looks fabulous! I love asymmetrical looks. And a funny side note, this is exactly the cut my 10 year old daughter described to me that she wants, lol Also, cannot believe you cut it yourself - way to go!
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!

Thank you! Although if my hair had been as amazing long as yours is I wouldn't have cut it xD. Tell your daughter I think she's stylish haha!

But my daughter's face is heart shaped, like yours, and she looks fabulous with short hair (and so do you!). And I agree, the asymmetrical look is so trendy and fresh.

I think that cut looks really great on you, you did a good job cutting your own hair! Your nose doesn't look big to me either lol You're really pretty

Wow it looks amazing! If or whenever I get brave enough to cut my hair I want it to look like that! I love the way it looks when it's curly. I guess it might be a little easier to maintain too.

I totally love it -- it absolutely suits you, and I'm in awe that you cut it yourself!

I did something like that back in the 80s, when I was in my 20s. (Although I had my mom do it -- she's a hairdresser.) I have always loved asymmetrical looks!

Beautiful!

So basically I cut off all my hair past the nape of my neck (it was so much, I was in shock. I've never had hair that short) and it looked like the attachment I'm adding, with the dopey face. And I just kind of chopped what I didn't like in a shape closest to what I was hoping for...I hated it in the back at first, but it's growing on me.
