I don't really plop, just wrap my hair in a curlease for a few minutes. It gets it out of my face and soaks up some of the water.

I so wanted to get a bob. The hairstylist wouldn't do it, she said it is out of style. I wasn't about to argur with a lady with scissors so I let her layer it. Everyone says they like it, yet my next haircut will be the bob! YAY!

I have a 3b bob. I hate it. It is always puffy and triangle shaped and has too much volume and I have alot of flyaways at the crown. Please help me.

I'm struggling with my bob too, right now. It's poofy at the bottom, no volume on top, and too much of a triangle right now.

My little curly cutie:





i decided to try a new place and i found it on this site. i couldn't really afford to go to the salon i really wanted to go to so i went someplace a little cheaper. i told the girl i want a cut but be careful because the shorter you cut it the curlier it gets and i didn't want to end up with a bob or a fro. nope i ended up with a bob it feels like there is no hair in the back of my head and it looks retarded when i pull it back in a ponytail because there is barely any hair in the ponytail. i don't know how to work this it's poofed out and frizzy and i'm annoyed.
Stepson is getting married next week, so I went for my haircut/highlight a week early--just in case it didn't respond well. My stylist didn't know why I came in. He thought my hair looked that good. It was a good day, but I felt that I was getting a little "triangular" some days. I actually didn't think he was going to cut it. He just "went over" everything. Have to say--it was perfect from day one. Even better then when I went in. I think he layered the top a little more. Haven't even thought I saw a triangle in the last week.

I remember last year, he really layered for the summer. I suspect that's what you need at this point to get rid of the triangle--flat top, poofy bottom.

I've been having the same results as far as puffy at the bottom/ lookign triangular. i have layers, but the longest layer shrinks up to the length of the shorter layer. i'm trying to use heavier products to weigh down the longer sections and trying to extra scrunch the shorter layer.

Just thought I'd join in. I have my hair in an inverted bob as well. I absolutely love it. I love this style on straight haired women and I wasn't sure it would work out curly but it seriously is the best style I have ever had. It's currently grown out quite a bit and desperately needs to be cut again but I thought I'd share a pic shortly after it was cut and looking good!

Is this a bob, or just short hair? Either way, what are your opinions on this cut? I had a similar cut many years ago, and have longed to have it back.

Do you think it would work for me? I don't like to get any shorter than a good fist's-worth so I have enough for a good ponytail.

My front layers are a little longer now, and so far I haven't noticed this. Of course, this might not be an issue for you anyway...

can someone help me? I have thick, 3b and I have a curly bob and as it dries it has too much volume and it is puffy and triangle shaped and it has flyaways everywhere. Should I get layers? If so, what kind of layers? If not, what should I do?
Here's my routine:
-Co-wash and rinse-out with Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey conditioner.
-When I get out of shower I rake in the same conditioner and rake in Tresemme Bouncy Curls Defining Gel. Then touch up with the gel.

i think both were saying if you never cut your hair, or only cut it once a year, it will slow down it's growing.
anyone else ever read anything about this?

Curly bob question here. Now that I've jumped on the curly bob bandwagon, I need to know how you all do your makeup if the bob won't let you plop?

I was used to plopping about 10-15 minutes, while I did my face. My new bob does not like this idea.

Is there a way to "get the curls going" and then do your makeup?

It's more likely that growth is more noticeable when hair is shorter because the ends are easily seen in a mirror, instead of behind your shoulders. Also, longer hair can get stuck on things and and get scrubbed against clothing, which can break of the ends and make it seem like the hair is growing at a slower rate.

I'm calling my stylist tomorrow for a trim anyway, I'll see if she can get it back to this similar style (she's never cut it that way for my yet).
