chin length? I'm not sure, but I'm considering getting it cut, and want to know what kind of curl/wave I could possibly have :)

YOu have to watch out with chin lenght,once i wanted layer chin lenght but because of the wavyness it was more around my nose . so really short and a ridiculous wave like it was standing horizontal

My former chin-ear length pixie. I might be more, 3a though.
I remember the bangs were very annoying at the 'just tuck behind the ear' length.

Chin length was a disaster for me...it just went POOF! But then, I have very thick hair. It would depend on how thick your hair is.

Yeah, chin length is kind of a disaster waiting to happen.

Mine either went poodle-ish like inty's photo, or mushroom when blown out.

Obviously this is a little longer than what you mentioned, but it looked pretty much like this with maybe slightly less of a mushroom effect since the layers weren't so different:

Absolutely! Here ya go:
Nice, eh? I didn't even have to style it; this is natural air-dried. (make-up courtesy of goth niece)

LOL, I love that pic, spidermom! Mine looked just like that at chin length. Very bushy.

I had 2b/2c hair when I was younger, and I had curly-ish triangle head. It was awful.

That's me now. My hair gets curlier as it grows (to 2c). You can see some pics in my album. My shortest layer is chin.

I like my hair at chin length and have had it that way several times. It can't be blunt or I get the triangle head of doooooom. Layers and a skillful stylist are essential for me.

Here (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/album.php?albumid=2331&pictureid=28656) it is a bit longer than chin, but wave pattern and shape are similar.

LOL Spidermom!

What kind of curls....? The messy kind. Which isn't always bad. But I didn't have it all one length. Lots of layers, the longest being at chin. Looking back at some old facebook photos, I see it didn't look bad, but it's not me. There were also a fair number of triangle headed days. I wouldn't suggest it.

I'm not sure exactly what length this is, but it wasn't pretty. :gabigrin:

I had my hair chin length... once. It will never happen again. Took an hour of styling each morning just to make it somewhat presentable, and all the damage made growing out even slower. I'm so glad I'm past that stage.
