I worked up to a pixie cut over the course of several years, and had it pixie short for about a year with a flippy spiky style (I loved this super stiff spiker cream - would hold anything anywhere I put it). I'm a 3a-b, but the curl patter varies a lot. Anyway, it was super cute, and my hair curled less than it does longer.

I'm sort of growing it out from neglect (it's almost 5.5" long all over now) and am enjoying watching my curls reform.
