If you could pick another hair type, what would it be?

While looking at other pics, I like to admire other hair types. I find something attractive about all of them, but I find the most appeal in giant 2c waves and nice tight 3c curls.

If I had to become another hair type, I'd go 3c.

Anyone else wonder about what type they'd chose if they could pick one different than their own?

    I love how Robin Wright Penn's hair was done in A Message in A Bottle here It's kind of 2C, though I don't think anyone has hair that's inclined towards that specific pattern. Generally 2C, definite wave.

    I agree with rcc, I'd either want 2c or 3c, although now that I think about it I really want type 1 hair the most :oops:

    I like either really soft waves, like 2a, or really tight curls, like 3c/4a.

    I voted for other, because as much as I admire 2b/2c and 3b hairtypes, I would not change my own. My 3a curl pattern is easy to deal and besides I wouldn't feel me if I was a 2b;/2c or a 3b either. :D

    I guess I should have voted other, but I said 3c.

    Reason: I have 3b,c,and a hair now. I think I used to have more 3b+c (no a) and it seems like it has gotten a looser curl over the years, more 3b and a with just a few bits of c left.

    So I used to admire looser 2b and 3a curls, but now that I'm getting more 3a, I don't want it! :evil:

    Then again, I just had a devacut and I think I may have more 3b and c again. I just haven't had a good cut in many years. :? :D

    Moral: watch what you ask for. :roll: :wink:

    I'd like to be 3b I think.
    Or a stronger 3a (unless I'm a deluded 2c and no one has told me yet)

    Overall though I like my hair type fine. Like everyone else probably I just wish it were more consistent oh and add in lots of volume, I like big hair

    I would like to be a 3b like I used to. Now that I am a little older my curls have relaxed a bit and now I'm a 3a. But I still love my hair and should be satisfied that I still have curls at all.

    I didn't vote but i think i'd like 4a, i'm a 3b/c at the moment and i think my hair is getting curlier, or maybe i'm just taking better care and have a better understanding and am a 3c all over? i dunno, anyway I always look at 4a hair and think how pretty it is, so i'd like to be curlier :D

    i would love to have to have hair like Regina Spektor, which i'm guessing is 2C/3A?

    WOW, I am a 3B and let me tell you this hair is DIFFICULT to deal with!

    I am surprised that 40% selected it as a choice!! :shock:

    I picked 2C because I think wavy hair is so sexy and stunning!

    I am very grateful for my 3b curls, but I just wish they were bigger and looser and moved a little!!

    We always want what we don't have!! :lol:

    I'm really not sure I "get" hair types, but I would like MY own hair, but without coarseness and wiriness. My curls, but finer hairs, less of the horse-hair feel :evil:

    I'm another other - I want YOUR hair, rcc! Yours, or internetchick's, and you both have 3b and 3a on your heads. Just gorgeous.

    It would also be awesome to have 4a/4b hair...

    Who am I kidding? I just have hair envy all around. :lol: You all look so good, I can't stand it!
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:
  • KaiaKaia Posts: 8,815Registered Users
    I voted 3B too! :lol: I like my hair alright, but I wish it would STAY curly instead of unraveling and going part straight when the mood strikes it. And I have big hair envy. :wink:

    I'd have to agree with Zeldagoblin on this... but if I could not choose my own and had to choose a diff. one I'd choose 2c. Mostly because I like that "tousled out of bed" look that seems to be easier with that hair type.

    I voted for 2c. I am pretty positive now that I am a 3b. My problem is that at the end of the day my hair can swell with volume that makes it really huge. I think that if I were, say, a 2c I would have less of this problem.

    I actually wouldn't mind having curls like redcelticcurls though!

    I picked 3c, but I really could have picked 2b/2c or 3c . . . I'd just like my hair to exit what I feel is its' identity crisis. Sometimes curly, sometimes wavy (at the same time - curly in the front, wavy underneathe), so if it would just pick one, I'd be happy. :)

    I want YOUR hair, rcc!

    That is exactly what I was going to post...whatever your hair is redcelticcurls...that's what I want. You have some of my most favorite curls on here!

    But I love my hair so I guess I'll stick with what I've got. Like I have a choice, right?!?

    I would like to be just a little curlier that I am with root volume! I voted 3b but 3a/3b would be ideal for me. In fact if I could just have Plink's hair I'll be fine. :D

    You guys crack me, up, but thanks! It can look good, but it's picky to care for. I wish that I could buy almost any old cone free conditioner and have it work. I'd call it 3B/3A because the back is looser. I like how it's big though, and I like how the front curls up pretty far on my head..

    I don't mean for this thread to be one where we can't appreciate out own type. I just like to sometimes ponder what other type of hair I'd like to wear.

    I really like the look of 3c/4a strawsets. They are so cool.

    aerohead you took the words out of my mouth.

    Whatever she has, I want.

    I like my hair some days. and some days Im ready to shave it and buy a wig.

    I didn't vote because I think I'd just like to have one type of hair of any kind on my head. Mine is 2b on top with 3a on the bottom. I think I'd either like 1b hair (straight w/body) or 3a hair all over. At least I could get a consistent look that way. For those of you who think wavy hair just turns out perfectly consistent and wavy every day I would direct you to the 2 forum and the "Woes of a Wavy" post. Wavies generally have to style at least some portion of our hair to get it to look "right". I want hair that is more wash and go. Having one type of hair on my head would have to make that easier.

    I voted 3b but 3b or higher is really my vote, I love the corkscrew curls and I really have this thing about Afros, I so wish I could have one! :lol: I also agree with the post who said the straw curls, oh my those are so pretty.

    ETA: I looked again at the results and I wish I voted for 4a or 4b, it has no votes! But I love 4 hair.
    My hair is a mix of 2b/3a and even a bit of 3b thrown in! I would call my hair wavycelli. It curls most when I leave it alone after wet scrunching. My hair has a spring factor of about 2 or 3 inches and has a very silky, medium texture.
