A low-maintenance pixie bob haircut ranges from ear to neck length, with layers that provide a voluminous style.

According to haircut specialist Trista Glover of Fort Worth, TX, a pixie bob or bixie never goes out of style. “They can be completely customized to your hair type and face shape. The greatest advantage is it’s very stylish yet easy to maintain at home,” she explains.

Even for rounder face shapes, a bixie cut can create a flattering and slimming effect.

A short pixie bob haircut doesn’t have too many drawbacks, but keep in mind the maintenance. You’ll have to come into the salon frequently to maintain its shape.

Finding the right stylist to chop your hair is significant. Ask if they have experience with short-length cuts and if they’re comfortable doing it.

“Most short haircuts need a lot of precision and detail work. This is what will make or break the look. If cut properly, the shape should easily fall into place and buy you more time between salon visits,” Glover states.

If looking for an easy-styling cut that promises volume and movement, this is the answer! Here are the images of the trendiest low-maintenance pixie bob haircut ideas you must try.


#1: Brunette Bixie Cut

The brunette bixie cut is cute, yet classic and suited for formal or fun. One of the best ways to go from a bob to a pixie is to try somewhere in the middle with the “bixie”. The bixie will give you the volume and texture you’re looking for that your bob may be lacking. Make sure to bring lots of pictures of cuts you like for your stylist. You’ll be able to decide where you’d like your fringe and layers to fall around your face or not. Style with a volumizing lotion and rough dry into place. You can use a texture cream or pomade to add dimension to the layers.

Enjoy the cute shape of an extra short and wispy pixie bob. A pixie bob has longer top layers giving it the rounder shape of a bob with a shorter shape of a pixie. If you have fine, straight hair you can use your hands to dry it. A volumizing mist may help too. If your hair is wavy or coarse, my advice is to use a polishing serum and a round brush. They will help to achieve a smooth finish and make sure bulk is gone from your cut. If you like versatility, you could dry it wavy for a different look.
