i don't know what your curl type is, mine is 3a and too short leaves me with no curl and funky hair going east-west, so i waited til it was a decent length to cut off the color. i've read that many people start coloring again when they cut their hair too short and are really unhappy with the length, not color. if you have very curly hair and a face that looks good with it short, then you can go for it. but if the transition doesn't bother you, then wait.
