Red face Diamond Shape Hairstyle :(

I'll first start off with: HI! I am Jaime. I am 21 years old and am still trying to find that perfect hair style for my hair (3a Curls). I love having my hair shoulder length or less but every time I get it cut I get almost a diamond shape to it. like flat-ish on the top, growing thicker curls towards the middle-ish and then it comes back towards my face at the end. I like having layers in my hair and I worry this may be causing this to happen to my hair..


What can I tell my hairstylist to do to keep this from happening??

Thanks!

Hi Jcooper! What sort of stylist are you seeing? Is he or she well-versed in cutting curly hair? Does your stylist cut your hair when it's dry and curly?

Is it a wet cut? If so ask them to dry cut so they can take account of your straighter and curlier sections, long layers usually works best for curly hair. Better still get a curly specialist haircut - see the salons tab on the main NC site.
