Curly hair hair cuts

Ladies, long or short layers on your hair?....How do you cut your curly hair?.

I want to keep it at my shoulder but i want lots of volume, whats the best cut for me?

(3b hair)
I think if you want lots of volume, which I love and sometimes my clients complain when I style their hair I make it too big (cause I like it) all I do is cut a lot of layers in the crown and a face frame leaving the length with a strong line to create weight so the hair doesn't get stringy looking at the bottom. Voila volume.

Curlpro -- that's what I WANT -- what do I tell my stylist? Right now it's pretty much all one length with some layers in the back (growing out a bob) but I need layers around my face for my hair to curl....Can you help-- where are YOU located?????
Do you have some sort of photo as an example that I could take to my hairdresser?

Ok, so you want forward graduation around the face, just account for spring so you won't get too short, and make the layers in the crown shorter, you want them to be 4-5 inches long when they are dry, so you can get good lift. Keep the layers above the occipital bone in the back and you won't get stringy ends. It is a modified square layered haircut. I posted a pdf somewhere here in a thread started by rudeechick called "weird stylist encounter" or something very close to that. PM me if you can't find it,

This sounds like what i want to!

I'm trying to make an appt. with a Deva Certified stylist here in San Diego that many seem to love.

My hair is short (and has shrinkage with CG method!) and my bottom layer is ringlet's and clumps and the top is just eh yuck...barely wavy, messy looking, wants to feather ala Farrah Fawcett in the 70's. It is starting to look funny. I think I want layers to allow the curl to come out.

Because my very bottom layer is shorter it ringlet's in the back and then my regular longer hair goes over it and just sticks out. Ugh! Every once in a while good hair day but mostly I end up trying to pull the ringlet's out to prevent the weird look.

I want it to lay well and have volume. Would this type of cut work for me? (my fotki pic info is below).

Don't mean to presume but any help is appreciated

I am on the East Coast -- Jensen Beach -- Hutchinson Island. If you ever get down here to visit, maybe we could arrange a haircut LOL!!!
Mine is just past my shoulders and I have long layers. I like it big and full (I live in Houston). My stylist cuts it very similar to what curl pro is saying.

My hair is fine but I like it big too -- I don't want frizz but I don't want the curls plastered to my scalp. I'm only about 2 -3 inches below my ears right now and and afraid to have it layered -- it will be too short but I am getting tempted -- too all one length hangy looking, if you could picture that.

In the underneath below the occipital her ringlets jump up 16 inches when you pull them out to their full length, on the top 4 inches. You read it right! it has taken us two years to grow out the bottom. When I first started to address the problem we cut the layers on the top so they didn't fall over the underneath, her hair looked so much thicker and better. It had the appearance that her hair was broken off and thin only because the underneath was shrunken up out of sight. When you have this kind of disparity in the curl you must keep the top trimmed up so it doesn't cover up the curls in the back, it doesn't have to be short if you don't want it short in length (unless it is screwed up like my client. She sacrificed length for the better look and just grew it out to the length she ultimatly wanted) it just has to be shorter than the curls in the back. Because it is straighter or less curly then the underneath it will seem as if it grows faster, but this is an illusion. During this two year period, I trimed the ends only in the back maybe 1/8th of an inch to keep split ends at bay,and in the same visit must have cut an inch or two off the top and sides every two months. I will try to find the pdf link and post it here for you and you can take a look. I modified this cut to suit her hair by cutting a shorter length on top, not necessarily shorter than the picture in the pdf, you have to decide your own length and use the pdf as an educational tool and let your stylist determine the best length within those parameters. So when I say shorter it is in realation to the length you pick for your hair.
I'll find the link for you and you can see for yourself and talk with your stylist to determine if it is a good choice for you, after all she or he will have their hands in your hair, so they have an advantage over me just looking at a picture.

This is the link to the pdf about square layers, I hope this sheds some light on what I am talking about.
