50 Stylish Long Pixie Bob Haircuts for a Unique Length and Style

Cindy Marcus Hairstylist, Editor-in-Chief

A long pixie bob is a short hairstyle whose length hits somewhere between the nape and neck areas. Hair texture is key in deciding whether a long pixie bob 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.

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 trim it 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 less time.

#28: Radiant Asymmetric Pixie

If you’re looking for an edgy cut, I would advise 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 with shears as short as their finger width. For thicker hair, ask for your ends to be razored to give a more piecey look. This will also help your hair pivot inward.

#29: 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 how you’d like your client’s ends to lay before cutting. Ask your stylist for recommendations on products that will help make styling easier.

#30: Lovely Lixie Bob with Balayage

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. Style your hair without combing through or spraying your strands in place.
