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.
