A long pixie bob is a sassy short hairstyle which length hits somewhere between nape and neck areas. It’s such a go-to look for sophisticated, edgy women out there!
Hair texture is a key factor in deciding whether a long or short pixie suits you. Stylist Jennifer De Jesus from Westfield, NJ says it’s an optimum option for thin-haired gals. It has layers that create lift and give the locks an illusion of density and volume.
Ladies with thicker tresses might find it challenging to style. Ask your stylist for tips and tricks that are apt specifically for you.
Always have the time to style and to visit the salon for maintenance. De Jesus explains, “This is one of those styles that loses its shape very quickly. If you don’t have the time for styling and salon visits, this might not be ideal for you.”
As a high-maintenance haircut, you must get it trimmed up to keep its look on point. The interim between visits can go about every 4-6 weeks, depending on how fast your strands grow.
De Jesus notes that pixies are not the wash-and-go type, especially on straight locks. Unless you have the perfect waves, styling might take lesser time.

#1: Voluminous Thick Long Bixie
This thick, voluminous, long bixie is a gorgeous update on the classic French bob. A bixie haircut also works as an elegant transition style if you are seeking to grow out a pixie cut. To add fullness, ask your stylist to create a graduated line around the perimeter. A textured hairline gives this style a soft and super feminine vibe.
#2: Long Bixie with Visible Layers
A long bixie with visible layers creates movement around the eyes and cheekbones. If you have thick coarse hair, this may be a perfect option to go shorter. This style is easy to style and is a great way to remove unwanted bulk. To keep your hair from falling into your face, try a soft blow-dry with a 2-inch round brush for texture and lift.
#3: Cute Long Bixie with Fringe for Thick Hair
Looking for a cute and low-maintenance cut? Consider a long bixie with fringe – this style is perfect for ladies with thick hair. The layers give texture and lift, while the fringe adds a playful touch to the overall look. The length of the cut is essential in making sure that the thickness of the hair doesn’t overwhelm the face. With my years of experience, learning to thin out dense areas helps the overall cut. And, it will be helpful when styling.
#4: Visible Layers on a Long Pixie Bob Cut
Consider a long pixie bob cut with visible layers, blonde highlights, and dark roots. This will give you a trendy yet low-maintenance look. The visible layers add dimension and movement to the hair. While the blonde highlights and dark roots create a stylish and modern contrast. This cut works best for those with medium to thick hair texture and suits any face shape.
#5: Razor Cut Long Bixie with Bottleneck Fringe
Have you tried a razor-cut long bixie with bottleneck fringe? This hairstyle is ideal for those seeking a modern, edgy look. With long layers that add texture and movement, this cut will make a lasting impression. To ensure your look stays in place all day, find an experienced stylist. They can recommend a spray to enhance your hair’s natural waves and layers. A styling tip for this look would be to part your hair in the middle. It will showcase the bottleneck fringe and blunt ends.
#6: Sexy Asymmetric Pixie
If you’re looking for an edgy cut, my advice would be a textured bob with an undercut on both sides and back. Tell your stylist if clippers are too risky for you. They can still cut your taper as short as their finger width with shears. For thicker hair, ask for your ends to be razored to give a more piecey look. This will also help your hair pivot inward.
#7: Ash Blonde Pixie Bob with Layers
If you have thick, bulky hair but want a modern pixie cut, don’t be afraid of texture. When cutting coarse hair I use point cutting, thinning shears, and a razor. This helps my client’s hair be as manageable as possible and prevents a rough grow out. With layers, remember that short layers push the hair. So consider which way you’d like your client’s ends to lay before cutting. Ask your stylist for recommendations on products that will help make styling easier.
#8: Sexy Lixie Bob with Balayage
You should try a sexy lixie bob with balayage as your next hairstyle. Blow dry your lixie straight, then if you can, curl your style and leave the curls separated. This will give your balayage even more pop, and show off your darker roots. Try to style your hair without combing through or spraying your strands in place.
#9: Dark Chocolate Tousled Pixie Bob
If you want to change things up, consider a dark chocolate tousled pixie bob. When your canvas is naturally dark the maintenance is that much easier to refresh. Once you have chosen your ideal style, book your reservations 4 weeks at a time, if you can, to keep your style looking fresh.

Bixie haircuts complement triangle, pear, and oval face shapes best. The softness of layers around the cheekbones and eyes with shorter crown layers adds the right amount of width and height needed to balance out these shapes.
#14: Extra Long Pixie Bob with Blonde Highlights
Consider an extra long pixie bob with blonde highlights if you like a high fashion hairstyle. One of the biggest advantages of short hair is that you will always appear stylish.

This will ensure a beautiful flow of color and dimensional blonde.
