Sidecut pics??

I'm really wanting to try a sidecut (like an undercut but just on one side, in front of my ear I think). Right now I'm pinning the side of my hair back to see if I can still stand it (and like it) by the time my next hair appointment rolls around (in mid to late April).

I'd like to see some inspiration for curly sidecuts! Either yours, your buddy's (with their permission of course), or random google searched pics - I just want to see some for inspiration to bring to my stylist (I'm a 3b to c range hair... depending on the day).

And yes, I do realize growout is a b*tch. That's why I'm giving myself a month of wearing the faux version to decide whether I can live with this on a more permanent basis.

This is a more straight version of the cut, in case someone's confused as to what I'm talking about. :)

    Make sure you have nice ears before proceeding.

    I have a friend with this exact cut (only her hair is shorter, and it's naturally very, very fine and straight, sort of wispy) and it looks so cool on her. At first I was like, hmmmm... but it really suits her.
    Not sure how curly hair would turn out with that, but if you do it, POST PICS!!! :D

    I just recently got a very short pixie cut, so I can tell from experience that it's so much fun! The only thing about having short hair around your ears is that the maintenance is ridiculous. If I see my hair bending over my ear lobe, it must be cut back down! OCD habit I guess. But I think it could turn out amazing.

    I love it. Looks kind of like an asymetrical cut. I had one like this last year and loved it. The only difference is the undercut looks more shaved down on the side. Good for you to try something new!!!:occasion9:
