Kinky naturally curly hair! stylist help!!!

ok everyone knows there are diff types of curly hair..my hair is not the soft relaxed kind that almost looks straight..the only thing i can compair it to are the pretty tight ringlets some black girls have..i have tried straightening it and its not possible regardless of how much money i spend.. i want a new style besides long and blah..i want something short and spunky but if not careful i will look like i put my finger in a light socket...any suggestions on a style that might work?

  • idk but don't let a stylist cut you wet, your hair will shrink like hell! tell them you want a dry cut only. i've seen some bad out comes from cutting kinky wet hair before. you should try a brazilian blowout before you cut off your hair, they can do WONDERS!

  • Do not use brazillian blowout, ask for a keratin based straightener,, Hi stylist with curly hair my self,, you must be careful about going too short,, look at some pics and get a suggestion from someone you see with your type of hair, who they see for cutting and styling in your area.
