I have your same hair type and I got a pixie cut over the summer. I love it! After browsing through many pictures, I found one I liked-of a woman named Audrey Tautou.
This was the picture I used:
I showed my stylist that picture and got the exact cut I wanted. My hair curls on the side of my head some, but the top lays relatively flat which was what I wanted. I just shower, put a little cream through my hair, and finger comb it into the style I want. I am so glad I got it cut!
