Bixie: This is behind the latest hairstyle trend for short hair in autumn/winter...
If something is neither fish nor meat, this literally means that it cannot be clearly assigned to a thing. Actually nothing bad. Only: Somehow there is always a negative undertone. What is neither one nor the other is considered inconsistent, vague, and unclear?
The latest hairstyle trend for short hair proves that ambiguity can also have something good. Because it's somehow neither one nor the other - and that's exactly what makes it so incredibly ingenious and stylish.
Said hairstyle trend is the Bixie. The name already gives it away: The hairstyle is a mixture of pixie cut and bob. Means: The hair is cut short, but has longer and airy fringes, especially on the neck and ears. The top hair is also a little longer than with the classic pixie cut and cut in layers. As a result, the hairstyle trend lacks the compact look that is characteristic of the bob.
The great thing about the Bixie is that it flatters a wide variety of hair structures. Thin hair appears fuller due to the layering of the hairstyle trend, voluminous hair is particularly emphasized. In addition, the fringed short hairstyle goes well with different hair colors.
As our colleagues from TheZoeReport write, the Bixie is visually reminiscent of star hairstyles that we know from the 90s and early 00s. The short hair was worn by numerous actresses such as Meg Ryan, Winona Ryder, Ashley Judd, and Drew Barrymore.
It shows: The Bixie is super versatile. After all, thanks to the long steps, it can be worn both straight and curly. And: depending on which bangs are combined to form the Bixie, the hairstyle trend looks either romantic and playful or cool and edgy.
What makes the star hairstyle so perfect for autumn and winter? Since the hair is longer than the Pixie, you don't have to worry about freezing on your head. At the same time, there is no long hair on the neck, which, thanks to the hat and scarf, becomes unsightly and annoying.
Stars like Meg Ryan and Co. already wore the Bixie, a mix of pixie and bob, in the 90s and 00s:
