Bixie Haircut Guide: Styling Tips and Best Look Inspirations

Jul 5, 2024 · 3 minutes read
bixie haircut guide

From pixie cuts to layered bobs, I've experimented with many different short hairstyles through the years. I know what a commitment it is to maintain short tresses. You can't simply wash and go — you need to style your hair to show off your fabulous cut and ensure it flatters your features.

The bixie haircut is one such haircut requiring a bit of finessing to look its best. Combining a pixie cut and a bob, the bixie is a fun, carefree style perfect for those seeking a change of pace.

What Is a Bixie Haircut?

If you love the look of a bob and a pixie, you'll likely adore the bixie. This hybrid cut offers the best of both worlds — the volume and length of a bob cut paired with the cropped, edgy layers of a pixie.

While the bixie might be new to younger generations, the hairstyle enjoyed popularity in the '90s, with celebrities like Drew Barrymore and Wynona Ryder sporting the cut.

However, as with straight-leg jeans and wedge mules, many '90s trends are resurfacing, with the bixie cut being one of them.

How To Style a Bixie Cut

Celebrity inspiration is great, but how do you style a short haircut when you don't have a team of stylists at your disposal?

I love Metro UK writer Jen Barton Packer's real-life walk-through of her first week after getting a bixie haircut. Describing the transition from tossing her hair into product-free buns to embracing the cut, she explains that the bixie can be low-maintenance and freeing.

Here are some of her tips, plus a few of my own, to keep your bixie looking fresh after you step outside the salon:

  • Use a round brush to blow-dry your hair. For the best results, Barton Packer recommends brushing it forward, sectioning off the fringe, and drying the hair downward.
  • Add gel, mousse, or texturizing spray to your hair, but don't go overboard. This hairstyle needs to move with you. Your products depend on your hair type — smoothing serum for stubborn flyaways or volumizing mousse for thinner locks, for example.
  • Finish the look however you please. Use a flat iron to smooth out the ends, or grab a curling iron to add gentle waves.
  • Aim for regular trims every four to six weeks to eliminate split ends and keep your bixie looking sharp.
