Why The Bixie Is the Must-Have Short Cut For 2022

Beauty trends are all about going back to basics. Whether it’s a ‘skin first’ approach or the iconic Olaplex bun, it’s all about creating a sleek, flawless look. While we love long hair, it can be high maintenance. A bob or a pixie is effortlessly chic. It’s inspired one of the biggest hair trends of the year – the ’90s Bixie.

We’re already seeing this hairstyle on some of the biggest celebrities of today, including Florence Pugh. This haircut is easy to customize with a fringe to frame your features or for easy styling. You can customize your look with a more graduated shape for a Parisian twist or keep it feathered for a feminine feel.

This look is half bob, half pixie with its copped layers and feathered ends. It’s the best of both worlds – and one that we’re head over heels for. Before you jump into the styling chair for your Bixie haircut, you want to consider your hair type.

At 212 Salon and Day Spa, the Bixie is one of our favorite looks of the year. With spring around the corner, the Bixie is the perfect way to change up your look. We’re sharing everything you need to know about this iconic ‘90s look and how you can achieve it.

What is the Bixie?

The Bixie is the lovechild of a bob and pixie cut. It’s universally flattering with the volume of a pixie and the versatility of a classic bob. The beauty of the Bixie is that your stylist can customize it to accentuate your features. This hairstyle trend is all about creating an effortless look that is elegant but wearable for every day.

The Bixie hairstylist is characterized by its invisible layers and feathered ends that call back to the shaggy bob and classic pixie cut. The length of the Bixie sits between a short pixie and a shoulder-length bob. There are no rules for a Bixie. You can make it entirely your own – with a little help from your stylist.

With ‘90s trends making a comeback across the beauty industry, it’s no surprise to see the Bixie making a comeback. The haircut was the go-to look for celebrities like Meg Ryan and Cameron Dias. It was even the signature look of Princess Diana.

Out of all the ‘90s looks, the Bixie is one of the standouts that has stood the test of time. Today’s Hollywood icons – like Florence Pugh and Kristen Stewart – have already jumped on the Bixie trend this season. We first fell back in love with the look when Rowan Blanchard debuted it at the 2019 Paris Fashion Week. Since then, it’s been making a slow but steady comeback to the forefront of fashion.

The Bixie is the perfect transitioning haircut. Whether you’re looking to grow out your pixie or you want to experiment with a bob, this haircut has something to offer everyone. Whether you’re transitioning through the seasons of life or want to try something new, the Bixie has your back.

Who is a Bixie cut for?

Anyone who wants a short haircut can rock a Bixie. It’s all about how you do the cut. Your hair density and texture will usually determine your finished look. You can customize your Bixie to meet your preferences – whether it’s keeping it low maintenance or matching your hair growth pattern.

A Bixie works with almost any style of bangs, making it an ideal option for women of any age. Feathered bangs with a Bixie will give you a youthful look, while side bangs help to frame your face. If you want a Bixie look that you can easily air-dry, ask your stylist to add more texture to your hair. This cut gives you a more modern look than a blunt cut and is low maintenance for those who prefer not to use heat on their hair.

You also want to consider how your hair grows. Hair growth can make your cut look misshaped over time if you don’t have regular touch-ups. If your hair grows down instead of out, ask for your Bixie to have more of a bob cut with a long pixie look.

Don’t forget about your hair texture. The Bixie is your best friend if you have medium texture hair, as it’ll hold the cut beautifully. If you have thicker hair, your stylist will work with you to make sure the top of your hair doesn’t appear too heavy. While finer hair won’t give you the same sleep choppy layers, you can still experiment with this look.

The Bixie cut is one that anyone can rock – from their 20s through to their 50s. You’ll find this hairstyle popping up all over your social media feeds. Its wearability means that the Bixie is quickly becoming the ‘it’ hairstyle for 2022. If you want to stand out from the crown, a Bixie is your one-way ticket to stardom.

How to style your Bixie

There’s no rule book for styling a Bixie. You can have as much fun with it as you want. You can keep it messy or go as sleek as you want.

The secret to styling your Bixie is understanding your hair’s growth pattern. You’ll usually want to focus your styling on your roots to create a voluminous shape while adding body and texture to the mid-lengths of your hair.

You can style your Bixie look in a hundred different ways. We love Florence Pugh’s ‘I woke up like this’ look by keeping it messy and texturized. Emma Corrin is another celebrity rocking this look. The Crown actress keeps her look sleek and close to her head for a Kate Moss-worthy look.

The Bixie gives you the freedom to create a sophisticated look or to channel your inner Rockstar chic. It’s all in the styling. Speak to your stylist about how you’d like to wear your Bixie day-to-day, and they’ll create the best cut for you.
