The ’90s Bixie — a Hybrid of a Bob and a Pixie — Is Back, and It’s THE Short Hairstyle of 2022

    It was an undeniably adorable look that eventually fell out of favor; my theory is that it evolved from a carefree look to a more heavily styled, extremely angular look that felt pretty cool when Victoria Beckham did it and then a little less so when Kate Gosselin did. (Is there any haircut more indelibly associated with the phrase “I need to speak to your manager”?) But a new wave of celebrities are bringing back that original, lower-key bob-meets-pixie vibe, and with it, an inevitability: we’re all going to be getting bixies in 2022. 

    We can credit Rowan Blanchard for getting the ball rolling two years ago while attending Paris Fashion Week with an authentic ’90s bixie, complete with choppiness and different lengths.

    Much more recently, Florence Pugh seems to be leading the charge with a similar not-too-short but definitely not chin-length look.

    Sarah Hyland recently cut her hair into what some might call a bob with bangs, but we’re gonna go ahead and call it a bixie since it definitely checks off enough of the boxes — and because her stylist, Nikki Lee, called it that. “We went short and added a full bang,” she said. “It’s our take on the bixie, but more timeless and classic.”

    Even Anne Hathaway was spotted on a movie set with what’s arguably a bixie, though it’s all but confirmed that she was wearing a wig. That said, it proves hair doesn’t have to be straight to look cute with this cropped style.

    Needless to say, the momentum is building, so if you’re thinking of trying it yourself, you can feel confident that plenty of hairstylists will know exactly what you’re talking about if you ask for a bixie, according to Fabrice Gilli, a stylist at Fekkai SoHo in New York City. “With that being said, it’s always good to show your stylist a picture of the look you’re going for to ensure it’s exactly what you want,” he adds. As for which hair types may be best suited for a bixie, he says very thick or coarse hair may not be the ideal candidate. “I recommend a bixie for fine to medium texture hair.”
