Hair style help! Going to the salon tomorrow.

Hi all

Im needing some advice. Currently it seems to me that my hair is quite flat on the top of my head and that my curls are becoming waves from the weight of my hair. My hair is currently just below my shoulders, with long layers [see pic]

I have an hair appointment at my salon tomorrow for a restyle and i would love some opinions from you girls and guys before I go please

The first picture is of me and how my hair is now. The rest are pictures of possible styles that I am considering.

Which do you think would be best?

Curl Type 3A and with a mind of its own.

Shampoo once a week with Organic Aloe Vera Herbal Shampoo.

Currently on the look out for a new DT and Styling Cream, though Curl Junkie is looking quite good.
Anyone?

If yours is like mine, I'm not sure you will get the volume of the first two pics and still keep the curl definition. Just my thoughts!

Pre Co-wash: Coconut oil (plain & rosemary)
Co-wash: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle or Trader Joe's Nourish Spa
Rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in/Styling: Moisture Maniac with Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner on top
I like them all too, I would love to have curls like pic #2. I think #2 and #3 might be difficult for you to achieve, my hair is like yours and I don't think I could get that volume on top no matter what I did. #5 are probably the best options for you. Regardless, hope you get a great cut that you love, i'm getting mine done today so have that nervous feeling going myself.
Yep, definitely the last 2, although your curl pattern might be a little bit tighter than that, so it might not end up looking quite the same.
co-wash - Suave Naturals Coconut
condish - Trader Joe's TTT and Refresh
styling - FOTE, shea butter, jojoba oil, LA Looks

Kryptonite: Stearalkonium Chloride, quats
I agree with the last ones too. I don't think you'll get the same results of the other cuts with your hair type.

How about something like KKurls? Looks like more layering higher up for volume to release the curls.

Hi

Thank you all for your imput I have been playing around with the idea of shorter layers on the canopy but how much shorter, currently I have about three different lengths in my hair but they are only about 2 inches shorter than each other - did that make any sense?

I am now considering the style below.

That looks very do-able for you! I would have some face-framing layers like she has, at eye level and below. The rest of the layers can be the same or longer in the back, maybe starting at cheek or chin.
