Question Would this haircut work for me?

Hey guys! I got 2C BSL length super thick hair. It's like a lion's mane and has just been getting in the way a lot, especially with my workouts. It gets matted up in knots and takes forever to dry.

I was thinking of going shoulder length and straight (I've done it before) but lately I've been thinking of trying this haircut out. Would it work on super thick hair? I think the layers might help bring out curl. I also like that it's short, yet the few long layers create an illusion of length. But it might be a bit of a gamble and get super frizzy too. It sort of looks artificially curled, but I'm willing to use a curler for touch ups. Anyways, thanks in advance!

I think it could work for you. And If your hair is thick, it may make your hair look much fuller than the picture. But if this is a drastic cut,, maybe you should like try on a wig or something like this to see if you'd like it on yourself. Goodluck

I've gone above chin length before, so length isn't that huge a deal to me. Just scared of how "full" it'll look. I'm not really going for the afro look (not that it's a bad look - just not the look I'm going for).

Thanks for the input

Thumbs up

I think that's a really cute cut and definitely worth a try! If the longer layers look silly or like they don't belong, you can just cut them off, and give yourself a new look, but shorter. If you're worried about it being too big, just do the opposite of what everyone tells thin haired curlies. Use products that will weigh your hair down. Creams or butters to control frizz, as opposed to a light gel. Also, air drying is a better option than diffusing because diffusing often adds volume. Try to keep a more controlled style with that look, and manipulate your curls to create the perfect shape.
I hope that helped!!!
