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! =)

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

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

    Thank you so much for the responses everyone! I'm still kind of in shock that I did it, but I absolutely loooove it. For now it is so easy to care for. I know as the front starts to grow a bit, it will be more of a challenge, but I do plan on keeping it at this length...lol maybe forever, so I will just have to go back regularly for trims. I've gotten so many comments from people who can't believe that my insanely thick curls could be tamed like this, but for those of you wanting pixie cuts, if you go short enough it is definitely possible. The back of my head is SUPER short...not buzzed or anything...but the only part that is kept a little longer is the front/bangs part, so I think that is the trick for a pixie if you have really tight or thick curls (3b or maybe even 3c). Thank you so much again for the feedback =)
