What kind of hair cut is this?

I would like to get a haircut like this at some point but I have no idea what it is called or if it would work for 3b hair.

    I'll take a crack at that: It looks sort of like a shag-type haircut. If you pulled up most of those layers directly towards the ceiling, they would be a similar length. Maybe not the bottom-most ones, but the rest of them. There are definitely some face-framing curls and some asymmetry to the cut, though.
    It's also so incredibly cute!
    Dang, curl envy strikes again!

    I think IAgirl is right. It looks like a shag-type cut. Is your hair dense enough and tightly curly enough for it? If so, you found something very cute!
    I only ask because my 3b hair would never hold curl well enough for that cut to look as good as it looks in the picture. :sad: Even though my curls are looser than the model's hair, I think a looser curl pattern with this haircut would still look really cute -- as first day hair. Unfortunately my second day 3b hair doesn't hold on to curl well enough, so I probably wouldn't be able to squeeze in another day between co-washes with a cut like this.
    Anyway, if you're not lazy like me :laughing6:, you've got a winner!

    I currently have a inverted bob. It's long in the front and very short (shorter than I wanted) in the back. It all holds curl well. I don't know that my hair would ever be as curly as hers but my hair is a cross between these 2 pictures. I have some wider curls and ones that are more narrow.

    Type 3c - Curly Kinky Hair - NaturallyCurly.com's CurlMart

    the picture in the OP is the girl in the CurlMart section "Find your hair type" -Type 3C Curly Kinky Hair.

    This cut might not work so well on looser curls than this....

    Yeah. Imo, if your curls hold well, then this cut will look really good (even if the curl isn't as tight at the original photo).
    And it would be extra cool if your styling routine got 2nd or even 3rd day hair out of it!
