Default Layering fine, curly hair

I think Struttswife is a genius! She posted some advice about talking to your stylist and how to cut curly hair. She mentioned something that was like a big, huge light bulb turning on!

She said that it is best not to layer near the very ends or else they end up looking stringy. Years ago (when I loved my hair) my stylist always started layering on the hair that started about halfway up my head, so there'd be a nice thick "base" underneath. It always looked thicker and healthy!

I looked at my fotki and blech, my ends are so stringy now - I think this is the reason! I'm so grateful to Tiffany! I'm going to print out her post and take it with me next time I get a haircut!

Here's the thread:
What Should I Tell My Stylist?

YOU have absolutely gorgeous hair short. I think you need a good haircut. GET some great layers in there. If you take a peek at some of my threads with pics you can see how my layers go.

Gee whiz, thank you Wavy! I love YOUR hair! I think you're right though - the cut I have just isn't right. I think the ends are too layered and the top isn't layered enough. It wants to hang down in chunks.

I'm trying so hard to grow it out but I guess it's better to have it in a nice shape first, then let it grow. I'm bummed b/c I *just* had it cut a few weeks ago to remove some of the dry ends, and the guy sort of did a weird job of it.

if it were ME, I'd get a good solid shape and THEN let it start growing. Shaping it DOESN'T mean you have to go super short.

+1. Why hate it for months?? If you great a great cut, that grows out well, you'll be happier. You can get trims to keep the shape, while it's growing out--and love it everyday.
