Default Photos of curly inverted bob?

I'm ready for a change. I've been growing out my hair to (mostly) the same length and it's a few inches below my shoulders. My hair is a 3a-c depending on styling products and how I style it. I'm a little sick of the amount of time it takes to style (it's very thick) and I want something a little edgier without excessive layering. I've seen a lot of blogs and sites that claim that curly hair can look good in an inverted bob but I have yet to see a single photo. I've just seen some with a few waves in it, which isn't my hair.

Does anyone with curly hair here have an inverted bob (I don't want to straighten it) that can point me either to their own photos or other photos onilne so I can figure out if this is something I may want? I have an appointment on late Saturday afternoon and while the stylist is really good and could probably give me suggestions, I'd still love to have something other than my imagination to figure out how this would look.

Thanks!
Stacy

Thanks SO much. Yours looks fantastic and I hope you won't mind if I take a copy of the photo (where your face is redacted anyway with me to my appointment as an example of what I'm looking for?

I can understand why the other woman was upset about her cut. Unfortunately, her cut is EXACTLY how I pictured the worst-case scenario in my mind. I hope she was happy when it was finally corrected. At least in that case, I could probably handle that easily by having it corrected into a straighter bob by having the front cut further. OTOH, I think that the stylist I've started going to can probably handle it (or at least, he won't hesitate to let me know if he thinks I've got unrealistic expectations and doesn't think my hair can lay how yours does.) In reality, the texture and curl pattern of my hair on most days is somewhere between yours and hers so I'll need for him to make that call.

Thanks again. I've been going nuts for days trying to find a photo with a cut like yours One question. Is your hair layered in the back and if so, how long was the shortest layer?

It is layered in the back. The longest is maybe 3 inches, the shortest maybe a little less than a inch. But that's only at the bottom closest to my neck. The layers gradually get a little longer moving up the back of my head. If you tell your stylist it is stacked he should hopefully know what that means. Mine is that way so that I get a nice lift in the back because my hair gets really heavy at that back of my head and lays super flat. Plus it helps give a good angle. The girl in the other picture has longer hair than I do so I don't know how layered hers is in the back, plus hers lays flatter than mine.

Definitely take the pic with you if it will help. I know how hard it is to explain to a stylist what you want. It's so much easier with a visual.

Love your hair/haircut, Rednaturalcurls! It's a perfect length and shape!

It's really a great cut for curly hair. It lets the curls do their thing.

Ditto! Great cut! If I could pull it off well, I'd do it! Beautiful.
