What do you think of this curly cut from O Magazine.

The November issue of O Magazine has a makeover (on page 114) with a curly girl.

You can see it at http://www.oprah.com/article/omagazi...uty-makeover/2 I really love her cut! She is african american and I am caucasion, but I think that our curls are fairly similar (although I would imagine that my hair is finer).

They do not have the "before" picture that they have in the magazine, but her hair was a bit longer in the back and sort of framed around her face. The new cut really suits her face much better.

I have been trying to grow my hair out forever, but I have never been able to get it past shoulder length (barely shoulder length). I definitely struggle with the flat crown/roots, and I think that this cut might help a bit with that. My face is very full (fat!) and round and I don't think the current shape flatters my face.

I updated my profile picture so that you can at least get the basic idea. I don't have any good hair photos at the moment. So, do you like this haircut in general and do you think that it would help with the flat crown situation?

Thanks!

I think it's adorable, but some people aren't comfortable with hair in their face. This style rests on the face a lot.

I definitely won't wait another 5 months, but I will probably wait at least 1 month - I am slow to change and don't have the $$ right now! I will probably call my stylist and ask her what she thinks before I go ahead with it. She is Deva trained and I really like her cuts. She knows that I have been trying to grow it out, so she usually takes off a minimal amount. She knows my hair pretty well and may have a good idea if this type of cut would work for me.

I agree that it looks like that cut would work for your hair! Good luck.

I think that this cut would be perfect for you!! Your hair now is actually kind of similar.

Good luck!!

Even though my hair only looks a little bit longer than in this picture, when it is wet (like when I am swimming) it is down to the middle of my back. I have incredible shrinkage, and it is very thin and fine.

I think that I am going to try it. I am willing to give up length to try and get some volume.

Thanks for the advice everybody!

I think the cut would be very cute for you. Many African Americans have super fine hair and it looks like the woman in the O article may have fine hair too, so I think this cut will definitely suit your fine textured hair.

Good luck with the cut. Show us pics if you do get it done.

Iro,

I totally understand what you're saying. My hair is very thin, also, and never seems to grow that long. I definitely think that going shorter will help with the volume. I am actually thinking of doing the same thing - cutting mine to make it look fuller.

Don't forget to post pics, pics, pics if you do this!!
