Curly Hair Q&A: Don't Cut Those Curls!

Looking for a curly hair cut with bangs? First, put down those scissors.

Little girl

Dear Rebecca:

I have 3b textured hair. Could I cut a collection of curls short so that they cascade over my forehead or would they bush out? At present my hair is just above my shoulder and all the same length.

Dear Beautifully Curly:

Do me a favor and step away from the scissors. Take a deep breath. I really want you to make sure you are ready for this sort of commitment. The best way to determine if you’re ready for a cut is to find a professional curl stylist for a hair consultation. You’ll be able to share what you’re looking for, and they’ll be able to provide you with a professional recommendation.

In my experience with curly hair, any sort of a fringe (bang) can run you into some big problems like frizz and extreme shrinkage. It’s best that you get another set of eyes on your curls and see how they could potentially react. I know this isn’t what you wanted to hear, but I just want to be honest with you.

kokiplo (number 7) said it best.
hi i have medium long hair curls are not lasting but i found this product kerastrait wich i used and my curls are lasting so much longer sooooo much i love it all i do is wask my hair towel dry it blow dry spay it on my hair and then use a hot (450) curling iron and WOW! curls
ive done the bangs before and i love them. im a 3b too. just make sure you cut them when your hair is styled and dry! that way you'll know what is the right length. if you cut them wet, you'll get major shrinkage when they dry.(and that sucks! :( )
Here's the straight truth: 1) You know your hair and your personality better than anyone else 2) No "professional" is going to be able to tell you what your hair is going to look like short, with bangs, etc, because curly hair varies with each individual. 3) Being a curly girl means having a life of experimentation with some small failures and some huge successes. 4) If you mess up, it will always grow back...
I have 3b hair also and My hair goes to the middle of my back,I've really wanting to start fresh on ,life since its my senior year at high school and i was wondering if it was a bad idea to cut my hair short?
I also have 3b with bangs. I love them. I must also have bangs with my face shape, however I straighten them out(only my bangs) with my flat iron. Like everyone else is saying if you don't like them then you can just pin them back. :)
Another 3b with bangs! I say go for it - I love mine! I straighten them out (just the bangs) with a flat iron though. Worst case scenario, if you don't like them, you can pin them back until they grow out again.
I am 3b with bangs also. I have always had them because of my face shape and look strange without something on my forhead. I had a curly consultant who insisted I grow them out and would argue with me every time needless to say I have found a new curly consultant who understands what I like and helps me to achieve it. I think first time you need a professional to cut and shape them, nothing worse than short bangs!
3b with bangs. I grew out my hair for years and discovered I too must have a bang for my face shape. Just cut dry, you can't put it back, but you can cut a little and live with it a few days. You'll figure out your perfect spot. And consulting a curly specialist? None exist where I live :)
I have 3b with bangs. Not straight across my forehead, but sort of swept to the sides framing my face. I don't look good without some sort of bang.
