    This photo  best represents my hair type, or at least it will once I reach her length. I love the fact that her hair is fine and nicely layered. Soon, patience is a virtue. At least this is what I am told. :)

    Wouldn't you know it,  just when I decide to grow my hair longer I come across this hair cut. I will just have to deactivate my Pinterest account.  :)

    Very cute!  As long as your hair in back neck is curly.,,.
    i think with less curl it would be a different look.   But it is really cute and her hair is fine like yours. I think that is key.

    That's just it @rbb, my nape curls are more defined when my hair is shorter, all of my hair is curlier when it is shorter. The nature of the beast! 

    I am always easily tempted, but not this time. I am sticking with plan A and growing for a solid year. 

    I blame Pinterest, lol!

    I promise @jeepcurlygurl! My hair is is soaking up a little coconut oil treatment at the moment and it looks like I have grown a wee bit since my last cut. Progress! Not going to measure, it is more fun to see and feel the small growth spurts.

    i totally agree.   the name is confusing.

    here is something else i should post on feedback -- these tiny, tiny, tiny reaction icons on bottom of posts are ridiculous.  who sees them?   so i feel it is better to quote and agree if i share an opinion that i want noticed.

    Renamed!  Thanks for the suggestion! 
    And I have an inquiry in about increasing the size of the little icons at the bottom. They're swamped with other pressing issues, but I'll keep on 'em.

    Thanks, @Gretchen. The name change is helpful for sure.

    Found another pic that I love for us fine wavy/curly gurls.

    Cross-posting for Stephanie Beatriz' hair. I know she has a professional stylist to do her hair on the show, and I'm just too lazy to actually put the effort in. But I wish my hair could look like that after rolling out of bed. ;)

    I found the photo that I took to the salon with me, early last year. I would  consider this style again in the event that longer doesn't work for me. The asymmetrical look has grown on me. It was the first time I had the style.

    Trying to guess if my baby girl will keep these curls or not? My hair is wavy but nothing like this. She just got curls about a year ago. She never had much hair but around 1.5-2 Years old it started coming in thick and curly. She’s 2.5 now.

    it seems like she will keep those curls.  i've noticed with my granddaughters that it seems to take til the hair is a certain length before the curls come in, or come in tightly.  even the ones with 3c hair.
    i think her curls are beautiful.

    I found this before and after photo. I think I prefer the shorter style, although the longer version could be wore up in many different styles. What do the rest of you think?
