The Trendy Bixie Cut Is Hot If You Know How To Style It Properly

Do you adore the classic sleek bob while still appreciating the edgy, bold pixie cut? Many people want a hairstyle that's a little shorter than a traditional bob but not as short as a pixie cut. If you've found yourself in this predicament, the bixie is probably the perfect haircut for your preferences, giving you the best of both worlds. "The bixie is a combination of the pixie and the bob haircut ... Blending the two cuts gives the fullness of a short pixie while keeping the length and versatility of a bob," hairstylist Jenna Spino told Byrdie.

We expect people to be asking for this on-trend haircut for all of 2023, as the bixie is one of the best short hairstyles available. There are already over 15,000 posts dedicated to #bixie on Instagram, as trendy people with various hair colors, ages, and face shapes are having fun as they rock the bold haircut. The best thing about the bixie is that there are many ways to style it.

Rock a wavy look

Wavy hair is so chic that many people invest in hair wavers and sprays to add texture to their locks, or they braid their hair before sleeping in hopes of achieving natural-looking girly waves. A wavy bixie is a super fun look that will draw attention to the trendy hairstyle and shouldn't take too long to create with the right products because of the short length. Some flirty waves will make your bixie look magazine cover-ready.

Add curtain bangs

However you style it, your bixie cut will add instant dimension to your look because of the layers and fullness. So, try leaning into that dynamic look by asking for curtain bangs with your bixie haircut at the salon. Curtain bangs naturally pair well with bixies, so we frequently see these face-flattering bangs with bixie lengths; it's a beautiful combination.

Don't be afraid of a messy-chic style

While frizz or flyaways are typically considered unacceptable for long locks, messiness isn't such a problem with pixie and bixie cuts. Since these haircuts are edgier and more unconventional than traditional long hair, bixies don't have to be perfectly neat. A messier look can give off a stylish, intentionally undone appearance, making your morning routine much quicker.

Embrace your emo side

Do you listen to punk music or have a plethora of black garments and chokers in your closet? Don't be afraid to express that edgy side of your personality with how you style your bixie cut. Opt for a bixie with bangs and sweep them to the side for a fun spin on classic emo side bangs, or part all your hair to one side for an intense side part.

Wear it straight yet voluminous

The bixie cut is ideal for anyone with straight hair who wants to add more height. Since this haircut is known for being full because of the pixie-like structure toward the top of the head, your hair will appear thicker than it would if it were longer. Thus, bixies are perfect for people with naturally straight locks who feel insecure about the lack of volume and are ready for a change.

Get curly and girly

On the other hand, bixies also look beautiful with curly hair. The curls will instantly stand out in a bold bixie cut without overpowering your facial features because of the convenient short length. Bouncy curls will appear delicate, playful, and fun when they're chopped into a bixie — what more could you ask for in a haircut?
