Can you help me find a new hairstyle?

I need haircut help. I've been caught in a cycle of cutting my hair into a bob, letting it grow out then bobbing it again. Lather rinse and repeat... for the past fifteen years. Lately I feel like my hair is dragging me down and it's time for a new cut, but I'm completely overwhelmed and clueless as to what will look good and work with my hair.

My only requirement for a cut is that it is quick to style- no irons, curlers, or round brushes needed (except maybe for special occasions). I can handle blow drying it and maybe smushing some styling goop in it, but anything else isn't very practical right now. I'm fine with going short- I like the idea of a pixie, but have no idea how it would look with my hair/head and what kind of styling is needed. I don't work in an office, so I don't have to look particularly professional.
Here's my hair
). It's medium thick, fine, and straight. No wave or body to speak of except for some wacky cowlicks in the back and the tendancy for the ends to flip in the most inconvenient direction. I wear glasses. If my hair is long enough, I WILL tuck it behind my ears. I'd be willing to do frequent haircuts if necessary. My favorite haircut was an angled bob, but it required a bit too much time with a flat iron or round brush to make it look presentable.
Please, please help me find a flattering and easy style!
