How should I have it cut?


It's now summer season for my hair, and I'm using B&A gel. I've noticed that my hair hasn't been as curly lately. Currently, the back is bra strap length when wet, and isn't boinging up as much as usual. I'm going to have my hair cut on Friday, and I'm torn between having just a trim and general re-shape, or having it more heavily layered. If I have layers in, I could get more curl. On the other hand, I could end up with loose limp annoying canopy waves. Or should I just have lots of layers at the back? It's really difficult to know what to do. I love Shakira's hair and would love for mine to look like that. I just know that at the moment, it's not looking so great. I think the weight of it is pulling it all down. I like root volume, and I haven't had much of that recently.

Any suggestions?

Me personally, I dread the layering because I end up with, not big hair, but HUGE hair! Sort of like a chaka khan 3a/b. So, I am generally fearful of it....but then, that's just me. I guess it just depends on how your hair reacts to it.

The girl I went to, Cynthia, (Christopher James Salon, St. Petersburg, FL), did a dry "layering" which is actually more of a sectioning of big curl chunks, then cutting a portion of it a bit shorter, to give some volume and more curl. She did a great job and I look forward to seeing her again when I can. My hubby says my hair has never looked better!
Hair 3a/3b.
Thanks. I don't mind big hair, but it's got to be in a nice shape, and can't be a frizz ball or the horrible mono waves I sometimes get. It's difficult to know what to do for the best.
Mip, how did the cut turn out?
I've been thinking about something different for the last 2 years, but always get just a trim.
There's no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold so he turned up the sun.
I had it cut yesterday, but I don't know what it looks like yet because I couldn't be bothered to style it afterwards. It's currently in a fuzzy bun. The day before I had my hair cut, I discovered that the cause of my stringy, less curly, frizzy mop was too much B&A gel. I haven't used the gel since last September, so I must have forgotten that I don't need to use much. So, on Thursday night I styled with much less gel, and on Friday my hair looked great all day. With that in mind, I didn't want to chance a major hair cut. I still think the back of my hair could look more defined and be curlier, but I think I need to practice a bit more with B&A gel and techniques before I involve a pair of scissors.
So, I ended up having a trim at the sides, about an inch off the back, and a general reshape.
