Also known as the ‘bixie cut’ the pixie bob is a hybrid of the two hairstyles, featuring the shorter crop of a pixie cut that sits close to the head, with the addition of the longer lengths that are often at the nape of the neck or side-swept into a side parting. Celebrities such as Taylor Hill have recently embraced the cut, and hairstylists are anticipating it to be a huge hair trend for spring.
Hairstylist Hollie Clarke predicted that the pixie bob haircut (AKA, the bixie) was going to be big news in 2024 late last year. “The Bixie is back,” says Clarke. “It’s the edgier, art school sister to the Parisian bob. She’s carefree, a little shorter and the blunt finish to a classic bob haircut is lost in favour of soft texture and shorter layers. It has a whole lot of face framing, knocking off that signature corner off of the bob, and adding short Bardot-inspired bangs,” she says.
The beauty of this haircut is that it is so versatile. It can be cut with a choppy fringe and layers for a textured look, or have a sleek silhouette with longer layers. It really lets naturally curly hair texture shine, and for instant glamour, it can be swept back for a wet-look vibe.
