Fancy a completely new look? Then you might like this new hairstyle trend! The bixie brings back a style from the 90s that was already popular back then. The newly interpreted short hairstyle could even convince all those who have not yet wanted to part with their long mane. We'll show you what makes the bixie trend hairstyle special, who it looks particularly good on and how you can style it.
As with the trend hairstyles shullet, pob, and wob, bixie is also a portmanteau of two well-known classics, the bob, and the pixie. The new look combines both haircuts in such a way that the respective advantages are shown to their best advantage. The bixie thus has the fuzzy front section of a pixie, but thanks to the bob components it is not radically short. Wait, hasn't that happened before? In fact, the hairstyle was already trending in the mid to late 90s. "Torn" singer Natalie Imbruglia has considered one of the pioneers of the bixie cut with fringed bangs and a longer nape:
Unlike many bob variations, many women shy away from classic pixie cuts. There is often a fear that the very short haircut will lead to a very androgynous look. In addition, a high forehead is difficult to conceal with a very short pixie. With the Bixie, however, things are different! The face is gently caressed by the fringed, longer sections at the nape of the neck and the feathery highlights.
Therefore, the bixie is definitely not a short haircut that only a few women really look good on. In fact, thanks to the volume at the back of the head, this trendy hairstyle can make the face appear narrower, give fine hair more body and take the weight out of thick hair with thinning scissors and razors.
Actress Rowan Blanchard was a few years ahead of the trend: she wore the trendy bixie back in 2019 at Paris Fashion Week. Her variant shows that the haircut does not have to be styled strictly, but is best shown with a slightly tousled look:
The coolest thing about the bixie is that it can be combined with many trendy bangs. With curtain bangs, the retro look gets a touch of the 70s:
If the bixie is to be a little edgier, a micro pony goes well with it. This one doesn’t have to be blow-dried straight either, but looks really cool with a beautifully layered bixie, even with light waves:
And if you're thinking that the bixie is actually nothing more than Meg Ryan's iconic hairstyle, you're absolutely right! Probably the trendiest short hairstyle of the 90s already had all the elements that are required for the Bixie, which is popular again today.
