OH! I love pixies! I got mine cut into a pixie about 3 years ago and loved it. My hair (which is wavy/curly probably 2c/3a to begin with) was so easy to style. My cut was a little shaggy so I guess it wasn't quite a pixie, but with the waves it really looked nice.
The only thing....I moved and I had to change hair dressers. I could not find anyone who understood my hair and I eventually ended up with more or less a buzz cut (which was NOT cute on me).
