opinions on medium hair for 2b-c hair

laurenrmlaurenrm Posts: 3Registered Users
I've been considering cutting my hair about APL to cover up a bad hair cut I got recently. Instead of my usual layers, I got it cut all one length BSL and now I've had been having 2a waves compared to my usual 2b-2c hair with my original long layers. If I get layers at about APL, will the curls and waves pop up?

    How long ago was your haircut? Curly hair can often freak out for about a week after a new cut and not curl properly. But, I will say, most curlies do not do well with all one length. Layers help the hair get more volume throughout instead of at the bottom.

    My cut was about a week and a half a ago. The only curls I have are the ones that frame my face

    You can keep the same length, but you do need layers.

    Thank you! Also, if I did get it cut APL along with layers, do you think the curls and waves would be bouncier rather than with longer layers?

    I've found that my hair is much bouncier the shorter it is... just more volume, fullness, etc. Length drags my curls down (but I do have baby fine hair). Some people get more curl with length, and others with shorter hair. The only way to know is try, unfortunately.
