Could I rock a crop?

Longtime lurker, finally joined up! Every time a haircut rolls around, I end up spending far too much time on this site, but I love how positive everyone is about their hair types. Hopefully some of you can help me reach a consensus on what to do for this summer...

I have thick (think, "frizzy"), wavy hair, probably about a 2c, an overgrown shoulder-length cut. I tend to have loose ringlets, and for the last year and I half I've been styling my hair with a combination of Bumble&Bumble/Idolmaker Curly/Aussie "Sprunch." Usually, just a little curl enhancer and either hairspray or mousse works to keep the ringlets tight and the rest of my hair relatively smooth, but it's impossible to style dry and I feel I need a change.

I've always loved uber-short cuts like Audrey Hepburn's, Carey Mulligan's, and Audrey Tautou's. I've heard mixed things about curly hair and crops/pixie cuts. But summer is nigh, and I think it might at last be time for me to give it a go. What do you guys think? And if you have any other suggestions for a short 'do that might spice this summer up, I'd love to hear!

(Attached are two photos--one from the front, which gives you an idea of my face shape, and one from the back. Both are on beautiful hair days--most of the time, my hair spends its time in a ponytail where I can't see it.)

    Hello!! :wave:

    First, your curls are very pretty! (Bumble&Bumble's products are no-no's for curls, though. Lots of nasty stuff in them. Not sure about Aussie.)

    Second, I love Audrey Tautou's pixie--I think you could pull it off! That being said, I like your hair long as well. Lucky for you, there are a ton of curly girls who've gotten pixies around here, and from what I've seen, they all look great! You should check them out for inspiration(if you haven't done so already) :)

    Have you talked to your hair dresser about it?
