Am I destined to have my hair in a ponytail forever? I just want to cut it short, and let virgin hair grow out. I attached a picture of my face, and my desired haircut (not the color, I'm keeping my brown!)

And if you want a change- there are always wigs! I know it sounds crazy, but there are some seriously cool wigs in hot pink, black, ombre, you name it. When I was in college I had this friend who had a pixie, and a huge collection of wigs, and she was just cool, you know? I never knew what she was going to look like on any given day.

ETA: The cut you showed the pic of would require serious straight-ironing to achieve this look, and you would end up with damaged hair again. I would say to keep it curly and learn to pamper your curls...either go pixie short, or go slightly longer since your curls will shrink up.
