Should I get a transition haircut?

Hi there!
I have 3B Medium thickness curly hair that is fairly short right now. I am going to grow it out to a little past my shoulders and get some layers. Between those two, should I get a transition haircut? Is there anything else I should do? I have had short hair for the past 15 years, so I am a little nervous about having it medium length again. 
Any advice would be awesome, thank you!

    Hi @ChelseaBee :Welcome to nc.com! I think it's really up to you. I did when I was growing my hair out, but there is always a point where you have to put up with derpy hair until it grows past that point.

    Hi Bomega, thank you yet again for your input! I think you are correct, at some point my hair will look a little derpy and I will just have to deal with it. :blush:

    I would definitely get transition haircuts. I had my hair in a short bob and wanted to grow it out to shoulder length. I got cuts every 8 weeks. That really helped my hair have a nice shape as it was growing out. I would have been miserable without the haircuts.
