View Full Version : hair typing

I swore I would never do this, I should be able to figure this out on my own.

2c or 3a?

It twirls into one fat banana curl around my finger with little effort, if that makes any difference.

What pretty curls!

I'd say 2c. How curly was it when your hair was shorter?

I really enjoyed your banana curl comment! :D I've yet to see that as a hair-typing test, but now I really want it to be included. :)

It's 3b when short.

I'm thinking 3a. Maybe 2c/3a. That's curlier than your standard 2c, in my eyes.

I'd go with 2C/3A.

I would go with 2c/3a - which is similar to my hair (when I had it).

You have waves with some spiral curls, 2c have them just at the edges and ends, while 3a has them higher up and across the hair from ears downwards.

Thank you, ladies!

I originally listed as 2c/3a but changed that to 2b/2c about a year ago.

I was surprised to see all those whurls when I took that picture so I thought I needed some more eyes on it.

I also say 2c/3a. :) I don't think I've seen a wave pattern quite like yours, so it was a bit hard to tell. It's very pretty! :blossom:

2C/3A, IMO. Really pretty, and an interesting pattern :)
