Curly Don't..Need a new look.

I went to a conference last week and today they sent the group photo we took. I was in the back row and I was horrified when I saw how frizzy my curls where. I could have sworn my hair looked cute when I left the house.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to get a trim but I think I need a style or a color or something. I made a pintrest page with all my favorite curly hair styles.

My question for the community is...How did you get to a cut and shape that worked for you.

I'm thinking of just letting my hair dresser do what she wants with it but I'm curious what others have done.

I like this one!

thanks Chupie...I liked that one too. I just need enough length to do a pony puff so that style fits the bill. Thanks for replying. It helps alot!

One thing key to a good cut, take pictures with you!! Whatever you pick post pictures!

anyway, i think a cut is a good idea. bring photos to the cut and ask her how your hair will look when she is finished.
good luck and post photos!

I have no advice on cuts, but just wanted to tell you I love your hair in the group photo- it doesn't look frizzy to looks voluminous ! I'm jealous! ;)

Chloe thanks for that. I got my hair cut yesterday and we started to talk about how people with straight hair want curly and vise versa. It got me thinking about appreciating my unique curls. I thought I had embraced it until I saw the photo and freaked out. It didn't look the way I thought it did and that was the moment.

Looking back .. it was only the second time I wore my curls out to work so I think I was a little self conscious of it.

I never thought about the fullness being beautiful. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I've got a bit more work to do to embrace my curls.

I did get a trim and the shape really makes a difference. I'll post photos soon.

Also I have found hair looks a lot different in pics than real life. I think it's a lighting issue. My phone photos NEVER look like my hair does in the mirror. And it doesn't look like it not in a good way.

Your hair didn't look frizzy to me in the pic you posted, just a little "wilder" than what you were probably going for.

I got a deva cut last July but as it has grown out and reached an awkward length I got ombré highlights instead of cutting it again and with ombré highlights I dnt have to worry about touch ups really

curly cutie...Great to know...Highlights is what my hair stylist suggested for our next visit. I picked some colors and we have a plan for next time. Maybe in a month or two.
