Just when we thought we had 2022 hair trends figured out, a familiar look from a few decades ago is well on its way to becoming the short haircut of the year. Allow us to introduce you to the bixie; it's longer than a pixie but less structured than a bob. With its bold, choppy layers, the bixie offers a flattering face-framing effect that we see gracing the heads of celebrities and influencers alike. Keep scrolling to discover all the inspo pics you’ll need to get in on the ’90s-inspired trend. 

Colorful Bixie

Take your fresh bixie chop up a notch with an unexpected hue. Copy this edgy fuschia dye job at home with the help of L’Oréal Paris Feria Permanent Hair Color in Fuschia-Cha.

Polished Bixie

With just the right amount of shaping and face-framing, the chop adds life back to long, tired-looking lockdown locks without being too bold. To help your bixie keep its shape, grab Garnier Fructis Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hair Spray and spritz it onto flyaways.

Bleach Blonde Bixie

We love a blunt chop with an equally blunt color choice. Case in point: this bleach blonde bixie cut. It’s fierce and trendy, making it the perfect option for switching up your entire look. When it comes time to wash, try L’Oréal Paris Ever Pure Brass Toning Purple Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your color looking fresh.

Shaggy Bixie

One of the best parts about the bixie is that it can be tailored to your preferences. If you love a shaggier, messier vibe, save this one and take it to the salon with you. Need help styling your look? Try OUAI Finishing Crème to keep frizz at bay without weighing down your hair.

Asymmetrical Bixie

The asymmetrical style starts long and layered around the face and slowly becomes shorter and more choppy as it reaches the nape of the neck, offering a rounder, more voluminous shape to the cut. If you have fine or thin hair, this cut plus Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Spray is a foolproof recipe for big, bouncy hair.

Expensive Brunette Bixie

The “expensive brunette” color trend is sweeping salons because of its low-maintenance upkeep, so why not pair it with the equally popular — and effortless— bixie cut? A hallmark of the color is its shine, so using at-home gloss treatments like the L’Oréal Paris One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss can help enhance this rich detail.

Curly Bixie

Whoever said that short haircuts can’t work on curly hair was sorely mistaken. The bixie works especially well for wash-and-go styles. Nourish your curls with a moisturizing daily leave-in, like the Carol’s Daughter Goddess Strength Divine Strength Leave-In Milk.
