Going Short 3a/3b
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hi curlies,
I've been growing our my bob for about a year now. So my hair is a little past my shoulders. It is a mixture of 3a/3b that has a tendancy to frizz if I don't , "mixed chicks " it to death. My hair is usually braided or worn in a bun. But I've been getting bored, and have always be interested in a pixie ( Maybe a little longer on the top). I am nervous about the grow out period, and how slow my hair takes to grow.
Any suggestions from curlies who have been here? Would it be a good look?

In my experience, you'd probably end up having to flat iron the fringe if you want it longer

Have you ever had short hair? because it is a big change, especially if you have never been super short before. If you've never had short hair, I'd suggest you shorten it gradually to see what you think.

I'd suggest going to a stylist you know and trust, show what direction you want to go (take LOADS of photos) and have them manipulate your hair and see what would work for you.

I go through phases of super short pixie for a few years, then growing it back out. This last time, growing it out has been a very uncomfortable journey - my curl pattern changed pretty significantly (which was a shock) and I had to learn how to treat my new curls. I've been growing my pixie out for the last 18 months, I've had two haircuts and I'm barely reaching my shoulders.
