Do I have to cut my hair?

In October I will be one year natural so I understand that hair takes time to grow, but do I have to cut my hair in order for it to have shape.? If not how to I shape and stretch it? In the pics attracted the one with the emoji covering the face is me lol. The others are by desired shape.

All of those styles are haircuts so yes. Their hair seems to be longer than yours. Are you sure you want to cut it right now or do you want to wait until you reach that length?
I would consider you too grow your hair to its desired point and then doing the cut you want.
Thank you both for answering! I definitely want to wait before I cut or think about cutting my hair but i just wasn't sure if it was necessary to have.
