    Exclamation About to trim down a lot of natural hair Need an Answer ASAP

    I have a high top hair style with cut down sides and back but i have been growing my sides and back for 3 months now because i want to cut down the top so i can have an all even afro. I was wondering would cutting the top while its in a twist out length be ok or while it in normal shrunk state because i dont want to cut it down while it was in a twisted out state then when it shrinks it becomes shorter than the rest of my hair

    How about a barber? They should be able to shape it well for you. Cheaper and perhaps better than a hairdresser, because they're not trying to add their twist to what you tell them you want.

    Co-signing DeBe: The barber will pick it all out and then trim it to shape. That's your best bet

    When you say "twist out", that automatically suggests to me hair that's stretched beyond it's shrunken state. And not evenly so.

    Hence, I agree with the above. If you can't find a barber, try someone that you trust implicitly who knows how to do short cuts on Black hair. (For instance, I have a relative who has lined up my past big chops.)
