I have naturally curly/wavy/thick hair. I have a hard time dealing with its natural body because it just poufs out throughout the day.

The advice

Bill Angst writes:

I have two options for cuts.

The first would be to shorten it like Vanessa Hudgens:

This will work with your natural texture. With it ever so slightly shorter in the back, it will keep the illusion of length.

If you are feeling bold, these are the bangs and length (on Lea Michele) that would be pretty.

You would need to blow-dry your bangs with a round brush to keep them looking cool.

In any case I think Jessica’s colour would enhance your wave and give your hair a brighter personal style.

Ana your hair is gorgeous! While I agree with Bill that a slightly lighter colour would be more flattering, and maybe even bangs if you’re game, I think the length is perfect.. If I was you I wouldn’t cut it however I would invest in some good quality products to help tame frizz and ‘boufiness’ during the day. You look great!
