Time for a new style! Ideas for something flirty?

I'm getting a new haircut on Thursday. I can't post a pic of me right now, but I will try to describe my hair. I think I am a 3b? My hair is pretty much loose spirals and just past my shoulders right now. It's really thick - I have a ton of hair. The longer it gets, the less it curls because the weight of my hair pulls my curls down.

Right now it's all one length and it just hangs there. I want a flirty, sexy kind of style, the less maintenance needed the better. I am willing to go shorter in general but not too short, meaning I don't want it cut too close to my head and still want some length to it. It was cut super short once and it was not flattering on me. I don't think I'd go shorter than chin length in the back, although that's pushing it.

The lady I am going to was actually recommended on this site. I'm hoping she will have some suggestions for me but I'd like to have a general idea of some styles before I go in. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
When I think flirty for the curls you described, I think somewhere between shoulder and chin, layered and really bouncy with a lot of movement. I realize that's not a "style" per se, but it's the best I can do. Curly "posh bob" styles are also kind of cute and flirty, if you're interested in doing something like that. Good luck!

i haven't actually gotten a good picture of it yet, but i got my hair cut a little over 2 weeks ago into the "flirtiest" hairstyle i've ever had. Its just a whoooole lot of layers all the way up. Maybe i will get a good pic tomorrow, but you can look in my fotki under either of the two recent albums.

Someone on this site gave a link to a curly hair style site it's http://www.curly-hair-styles-magazin...-pictures.html

Maybe you don't want to go quite that short but maybe a longer bob would be nice. I'm hoping to do the same

People tell me my hair style is kind of flirty...not really sure if it is, but that is me in my avatar.

Thank you so much for all of your responses so far! To give you a better idea, here is pretty much what my hair looks like now:




I think you would look great with some layers!!
VERY fine 2B/3A hair
Chin-length - growing it out...again.
Flirty, huh?

Ever considered curls?

I saw the SEXIEST hair ever at the Devachan salon in NYC the other day. It was essentially shellynot's cut, with the bulk of her hair/layers around her neck/shoulder area, and then longer layers underneath. I love that look, personally.
Location: North NJ or NYC
For shorter cuts, my hair's pretty flirty right now.

Back of my head (I haven't posted this angle on the board yet, but the front one I have, all over!)



And it was shorter in this pic than the backview pic, but this shows my hair better, I think, than ones from the wedding (when the backview was taken):

Thanks again to everyone who responded!

My appointment is in about an hour. I'm going to print out this thread and bring it with me so I can reference your suggestions. I will post pictures of the results when I can!

Here it is!

I had her cut it right at my shoulders in the back, and she put layers throughout it. I hardly had to do anything to it this morning! I used a very little amount of gel and dried it, and that was it!



Cute!


Curls definitely make "flirty" easier than straight hair!

It looks great! I think the layers gave you a lot more body and more height on top!
