    There were maybe 2 curly hair styles in there. You should change the title of your post. Curly is not a straight hair pixie cut!

      Hey there!
      I would be glad if you go through the article once again and see that all the eight hairstyles portrayed are based on curls. Short pixie is a kind of cut which can be done for both straight as well as curly hair.
