Hi Guys. I have 3a hair and am dying to chop it off. I really want a pixie cut specifically Halle Berry's. Pic below. Has anyone with 3a hair chopped it to a pixie before? If so could you give advice or show me pics. I'm afraid to take the leap....THANKS!

Basically, I had to have it 'chopped into' a huge amount to 'destroy' the curl (my hair curls from the root). The downside, it needs cutting every 4 weeks and takes an age to grow out. The plus side, I could do my hair it 10 mins flat - just wash, wax (to funk it up) and go!

My curly hair, if it is long and dries naturally, is probably not going to be as curly as you see in the pictures. I spent many years obsessing and perfecting the way to keep it looking good curly!

In the shorter pics, I do nothing to it. Nothing. I didn't even use conditioner until I started coloring again. I'd shampoo every other day, get out of the shower and ruffle/shake it out with my hands, and that's it. When it was dry (which takes no time) I would run some pomade or paste in the same ruffle/shaking manner as when I got out of the shower. So the product is more on the underside and closer to the roots.

It's so easy. It's amazing how much I don't have to do to it. And as scared as I was to take the jump, it was apparently the right one to take. I get tons of compliments on it.

In the 80s I had my hair even shorter than iroc's for a while -- not really a pixie, more of a Pat Benetar look. It was almost straight. I used to just spritz on a little spray gel and let it air dry. It was so easy -- but it wouldn't look good on me these days.

Ok, so I really wanna sleep, but I can't figure out how to post stuff...anyway. Ill fix it tomorrow. Can anyone tall m if the following photos would look good on 3a? I want a pixie.... Anyway. I want one that I can flat iron, or leave curly, and it's kind of longer at the top so If I wanted to Mohawk it or spike or it would look good... HELP! Also, if you reply to this, can you post a picture of what you are talking about in case I like it? Thanks! I kind of want a combo of the first pica and the Mohawk with the pink in it, but I don't want to pink my hair, just the style...

3a Pixie Cut?-image.jpg  
hi. i have had a pixie for a couple of years, ive been trying to grow for a couple years too
pros-.very easy, no fuss, tons of compliments. cons.-i had to wear full makeup everyday, dress up to feel like a girl, and i had to cut it every 3 weeks.and if u decide to grow it out, it is very frustrating.
i have 3a curl too so the curl shouldnt be a problem, u might have a wave or two, but thats it.
good luck.
