What is the Bixie haircut?

We know that a highly textured, sweeping hairstyle always goes over well with people of all ages. Best of all, you do not need much length for a playful cut. The Bixie is a combination of a pixie and bob haircut. This fusion of two cuts combines the length and versatility of a bob with the fullness of a short pixie.

The Bixie is a short or medium length, casual and irregular style. It leaves the neck free, while it is more trimmed on the sides. It may or may not include bangs and has shorter layers that start at the crown, adding volume and texture to the look. Therefore, it also has some similarity with the shaggy cut. However, these layers can either be very pronounced or cut at an angle to soften them. In other words, it is completely customizable.

The Bixie combines the two hairstyles in a way that is both chic and airy.

Characteristics of the Bixie haircut

The Bixie haircut gets its name from the combination of pixie and bob haircuts. That is, its length is characterized by being longer than the Pixie, but not reaching the length of the Bob. In the end, it achieves a refined, flattering result by combining the advantages of both. Moreover, it can be worn with or without bangs, with straight or frayed ends, with or without layers. You get the sharpness of a pixie without giving up the facial frame and fringe of a structured bob.

Now let us take a look at the main features of this trendy hairstyle:

  • Is not too high maintenance: this cut is perfect for people who want a cut without committing to the care of a short hairstyle.

  • Is very customizable: there are many different versions of this hairstyle. The length can vary from tighter in the back and stringy around the face to chin length. If you are considering this haircut, come to your appointment well prepared. Pictures are always helpful, especially because this cut is very customizable.

  • Suits everyone: this haircut suits blondes, brunettes, brunettes, and redheads. It also looks great on straight, wavy or curly hair.

  • It grows out well: even if you do not love your Bixie, it does not take as long to grow out as a full-blown pixie cut. It can easily grow into a bob without a transition period.

How to style the Bixie haircut

The Bixie is suitable for those who like a messy short hairstyle and volume. And, as mentioned above, it is a cut that suits all ages and hair types. Learn how to best style this haircut by following the recommendations below:

  • If you have fine hair, experts recommend using a texture spray or mousse. These products help to create volume at the roots. It is also useful to let the hair air dry or, if you use a hair dryer, direct the air from the bottom to the top with quick movements.

  • If you use styling products, you should wash your hair thoroughly after styling so that no product residue is deposited on the scalp.

  • If you prefer a smoother and shinier finish, you can style your hair with the help of a styling cream, a hair dryer and/or a straightening iron.

  • If you want to give it a distinctive retro touch, comb the ends upwards with a round brush.

  • If you have curly hair, define your curls and give them the moisture they need for a natural bounce.
