How to get short hair that doesn't look triangular?

I want to style my hair similar to this picture. I have 3B type hair. In the past when it's been cut short it has begun to look like a triangle, which I hate. How can I avoid this?

Hi Cara, You can get a good short style without triangle head if you tell your stylist to give you more volume at the top and thin out the bottom. This will require layers. You want your stylist to shape the layers around your head and thin it out closer to your neck. I would recommend looking for a curly salon to do this. Untrained professionals can really mess up a curly cut. Check out our salons section to find someone near you: - read these two articles. They will help you style your hair and the get the look you want. Luck!
