Well, I finally did it! I cut my hair!! I went to a new place called Trashy Roots, they specialize in curly hair, and cut 7 inches off! The stylist gave me a DevaCurl cut/style. The Deva cut is a customized, indivudalized cut for curly hair - the hair is cut dry, as each curl falls naturally it is sculpted/snipped at the correct location. She did a slightly modified cut for me as I also like to wear my hair straight. I really like it, my curls have never looked so great! Can't wait to see what it looks like straight. :) The stylist told me if I like the cut that we could go even shorter next time!
