Default Cutting my hair TODAY!

Hi everyone. I posted months ago about cutting my long, super thick mop of curls into a pixie. (I'm a 3B.) Well, my appointment day has come and at noon today, it's CHOP CHOP! I'm so excited but also extremely nervous....maybe even terrified. lol I'm pregnant (due in 4 weeks) and I think that if I can survive my haircut, I can survive childbirth....I may even be more nervous about this.... I will be posting some pictures later but until then, PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for me! =)

That cut is absolutely adorable on you, and should make haircare easier with a baby.

Good luck with the baby.

hot damn!
If a 3b curly can have a pixie and look awesome, maybe I can too someday

I always thought pixie's were reserved for looser wavies, but maybe not
