Curly hair and difficulty to put into type
This curly hair picture (of a male) says it all: when curly hair is very short it can pass as a different hair type to its authentic hair type. In this picture, his curly hair when very short looks wavy even almost straight but it soon starts bending tight once it gets to one inch! Cool

RE: Curly hair and difficulty to put into type
Yeah big difference, it's why Rogelio is so big on only measuring your curls when you have sufficient length and if not waiting to grow out the length to measure the hair. Curly hair will suddenly start curly visibly as the locks start to complete full loops.

If you look closely on that picture you can see how the dude on his left pic has two curl types, tighter curly hair from ear height down then looser curls on the top. It looks to me a type II/III going from the typing guide in the Curly Hair book.

RE: Curly hair and difficulty to put into type
That is one great hair picture showing the differences in curl visible expression between lengths. The hair on the top is a Type II while the hair on the lower scalp is a Type III (as per my curly-hair typing guide), yet the hair on the top can pass as a Type I or even straight hair to the untrained eye. Ergo, the importance (and thus my insistence) of getting the ruler out and measuring vertical lengths, even if using my latest hair-typing guide.

Excellent find, and the curly hair haircut was done very nice indeed.
