Hair Trends:The Bixie
Updated: Feb 18
The bixie haircut is a combination of a pixie and bob cut. This trendy cut offers the fullness of a short pixie and the versatility of a bob. The cut is customizable, making it suitable for women in Austin, TX and everywhere of all ages!
First, we encourage you to make sure that your preferred cut will work well with your hair texture and density. The key is finding a stylist who can create a bixie ideal for your features, hair type, and lifestyle!
If wanting a more modern style that’s easy to air-dry, texturize the hair rather than cutting it blunt.
Release weight to create the shape of the haircut first. This allows for natural texture and the desired silhouette to come alive. The suitable length can be established after the shape and movement take place.
If your hair grows out before it grows down, ask for more pixie than a bob. The internal head-hugging shape of a pixie will create a lean silhouette. Otherwise, if your hair grows with less natural lift, go for a bob with a long pixie shape.
For styling bixies, be open to styling your mane in ways that complement its natural growth pattern! Learn to style the roots for the shape and the mid-lengths to ends for extra body and texture.
