Default short, type 3a-b cut

I've been growing my hair out for a while now to cut it for Locks of Love (it's now somewhere between my shoulder blades) but I'm a little worried about how much the curls are going to shrink. My hair is between 3a and 3b in pattern, low porosity, and medium density if that helps.

I also donated my hair to locks of love I currently have a 3a bob and I love it! It's easier to take care of and looks great. If I were you I'd go for the cut.

I also donated my hair to Locks of Love. This is about a week after the cut. short, type 3a-b cut-imageuploadedbycurltalk1366327267.233607.jpg
I went with a traditional wet haircut because it was a stylist that I trusted (he's the only person I've ever gone to when I wore my hair short). I'm due for a trim now (I can't believe how fast my hair is growing back), and will be getting a Devacut next week.

I've worn a inverted, curly bob for 5 years. It's the first time in the 30+ years that I've worn my hair curly that I feel that I have a style. Here's a link that might help you Curly Bobs Unite! What's to like about it.
