My curls do seem to be a lot happier at this length. They've always "boinged" but only the last two inches or so - everything above it was more of an S-pattern because the length dragged out the curl.

Hehe well my hair envy has just grown! I could never pull off such a short style, I always feel like my face is too chubby! haha.

And really, you're so beautiful you could pull off just about anything, so don't worry about it!

Wow, really really cute! I have to go to a stylist to get mine cut since it's in an inverted bob now. I don't know how to cut it like this. I'm really tempted to chop it like yours A:because it's cute, and B: because I could cut my own hair again...sigh...

How are you styling it? Do you part it, or let it part on its own? Scrunch upside down? Clip? Do tell.

Styling: After washing & conditioning, I apply a leave-in in the shower & flip my head upside down & comb it, to encourage clumping and volume. Squish out some of the water, then scrunch in styling product(s) the way Mysteryflavored does in her KCCC video. Blot with microfiber towel, plop 10-20 minutes, and let the part do whatever it wants to. I usually move a curl or two from one side of the part to the other if I want my bangs off to the side.

HTH, and thanks again for all of the compliments.
