    I have 3B, and getting my hair shorter/cut makes it curlier, not less curly.

    Whether your hair gets more or less curly at shorter lengths has a lot to do with where your curls start. Waves/looser curls sometimes need a certain amount of length for hair to show it's full pattern, so sometimes shorter hair will make hair appear less curly. There's also the possibility of the decreased weight of the hair allowing more bounce and pulling the curl tighter. I found a combination of both of these things happened when I cut my hair from BSL to lip length bob. I had some wild gravity-defying curls that actually would dry in an upward direction, and I hade sections of hair that would only get to about a 2b wave. It's one of those thing that you can't entirely predict unless you try it.
    All of that being said, while I love Deva cuts, I hate their styling technique. My hair doesn't like DevaCurl One C, and hooded driers distort my curls worse than anything. So after a Deva cut my hair has significantly less curl than normal, but that resolves once I style it myself.

    Depends on the cut and your curl pattern. I can't see your hair getting less curly with a cut, even if you went super short. It would probably curl a bit more, since there's less weight on it.

    My hair gets curlier when I cut it. That's one of the reasons I'm afraid of going too short. Lol.

    My hair gets looser when I cut it, it just depends on your individual head of hair. It could also be the styling products they used. Even seemingly harmless products can be loaded with silicone, polyquats, and waxes. I suggest washing and styling it on your own, with products you know your hair likes. If it's still looser, you might just have hair that needs more length to show full curl potential.

    It also depends on the shape of the cut. For many of us, but not all of us (it seems), layers lift weight off the hair so that the curls are more likely to spring up or tighten.

    I keep mine in layers to keep the curls tighter. When my hair is super short (1 inch or less), it literally looks straight - straight but thick. But all it needs is about 2 inches before it forms corkscrews with waves mixed in. By 3 inches it's super curly (3b/c - the c is in the crown and areas of the back). 5 to 6 inches longer and it's an overall 3b/a pattern.

    Oh my gosh your hair looks beautiful. I'm going to crawl in a cave now and suffer from major curl envy.
