3A Haircut

emmacuemmacu Registered Users Posts: 2
I have been struggling to love my curls for over a year now. When they are long it's too big but when the are short I get the triangle shape. I am going for a cut Tuesday and was wondering if anyone had tips! My hair is curliest at the ends, so from my scalp it is more of a wave until about my ears, then my curls are about 3/4-1" in diameter. Currently my hair is about 3" past my shoulders. I am pretty sure I want to add some shorter layers especially in the front to frame my face better. But any tips would be helpful! So many google images are CLEARLY not natural curls!

    3a hair typically does not start to curl at the root, but down further.

    i would avoid short layers.

    here is a thread started by a hair stylist many years ago and has great info--

    good luck!

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    @rbb oh interesting! I feel like I have been getting “triangle head” with my longer layers so i thought shorter would help. Maybe I just need a good face framing! It’s strange because my hair used to be curlier at the top and I think the looser more wavy hair I have now makes things tricky!
