Bixie cut is not only a hairstylist’s dream, but also a banging trend seen everywhere in 2023, and here is why. The cut brings together a classy elegant look and pairs it with an effortless style, combining the best lived-in looks with timeless sophistication. I think you’ll agree it looks fabulous at any age.
Read on to see how you can actually combine the bob, mullet and pixie into one beautiful style!
What Is the Bixie?
This bixie cut combines elements of the short bob haircut with texture in the interior of the nape. Apart from its bob-like elements, the cut also incorporates texture and movement we’ve grown to appreciate from the pixie. The bixie might even look graduated without technically having graduation, and its cleverly repositioned shape has the potential to stack up without risking a “Karen Cut”.
As with many other hair trends that we can see today, it is a nod to the ’90s, the iconic cuts of Cameron Dias and Meg Ryan being much-cited examples.
Of course, being among the first to take up the bixie haircut trend requires certain courage, just as styling female mullet does. For some, as Florence Pugh has demonstrated, it will even be a radical change from long to short haircuts. However, the cut is not a whim only an actress can afford! It is already all over Instagram, and it’s really very wearable. More so, it works for a variety of hair types.

Bixie Styling Tips
In our salons, we carry three core styling brands including Arrojo, R+Co and Oribe. The effortless look below is the perfect vessel for texture-enhancing styling products. The hairstyle here was cut with a razor and styled with Jackpot by R+Co and finished with Wave Mist by Arrojo.
Also, on my own hair, I’ve gone for a more graduated bixie with either curtain bangs or blunt bangs to give it a French Bob feel. With the fringe left longer, the front feels a bit like a shag and styles out nicely with Oribe Imperial Blowout or Arrojo Styling Creme. I’ve activated the texture in my cut with Arrojo Texture Paste.
Whether this style evolved out of compromise or pixie grow out, its generous options deliver versatility and endless customization. Hopefully, this inspires you to consider your version of the bixie haircut trend. Follow my Instagram @jcolestyle for more tips and ideas.
