A pixie bob haircut is a women’s short haircut whose length ranges between a pixie and a bob (between ear-length and neck-length). For those edgy gals who don’t mind a crop, this modish cut should be a definite go!

Though short, you’ll be surprised how versatile this hairstyle is! It can go from one-length to angled, choppy and shaggy to sleek, with a full front fringe or lovely side bangs, or matched with a chic fashion color.

Ladies with the best pixies on television and who are for the cropped hair movement include Emilia Clarke, Zendaya, Mia Farrow, and Shailene Woodley. But all thanks go to the OG pixie bob queen  – Audrey Hepburn, who rocked the look with her natural locks!

Another good news is that with short hair comes less maintenance! Although if you fall too deep in love with the look, a trim visit is due monthly to keep the length at bay.

Still having second thoughts? Make that hesitation go away when you take a look at these up-to-date examples of pixie bob haircut ideas below!

#2: Asymmetrical Pixie Bob Haircut

This pixie is bold yet feminine. This is a short asymmetrical bob cut with disconnection. The sides and back are done with scissors and a combover that is very tight and clean to the head. The top portion is done by point cutting at a diagonal, directing each section to the previous. The asymmetrical pixie bob style is versatile and can be worn on either side. On lazy days, she can pull the fringe back in a cute small braid or with bobby pins. What I love about this look is the confidence it gives her. She feels beautiful and strong.

#3: Chic Pixie Bob Cut with a Sweeping Fringe

Try a chic pixie bob cut with a sweeping fringe. A short pixie bob is ideal for the chic gal. Round face shapes and their asymmetry enhances the look. Your stylist may use a range of methods – a razor, slide cutting, or texture shears, to add texture to your hair. All these methods aim for one outcome – to create a soft, moveable pixie.

#4: Champagne Blonde Pixie Bob

Looking to switch up your short hair game? This cut is perfect for those who want something short and chic but want to maintain some length. The blonde hue adds a touch of glamour, while the choppy layers provide volume and movement. To style, start with damp hair, and don’t forget to apply a volumizing mousse to the roots for added lift. Then, blow dry using a round brush to shape the bob and slightly curl the ends. Finish off with a spritz of hairspray to keep the style in place all day.

#5: Very Dark Pixie Bob with Visible Layers

A very dark pixie bob with visible layers is a great option for women with short hair looking for a bold change. This cut is perfect if you have a busy life and want a low-maintenance style. It still allows for versatility in styling. The layers add depth and texture to the hair, while the length on top leaves room for creativity.

#6: Visibly Layered Pixie Bob

A visibly layered pixie bob haircut is a great choice if you want to cut your hair short. This cut will give you the length of a bob but with the volume and texture of a pixie cut. A bixie cut complements most face shapes and hair textures and can be customized to suit you best. One disadvantage to having shorter hair is that you need to have it cut every 4-6 weeks. This help to maintain length and weight distribution.

#7: Chocolate Pixie Bob with Choppy Layers

A chocolate pixie bob with choppy layers is a cool cut that will get you tons of compliments. To get this style, ask for a short bob with lots of layers and texture through the length. Skip adding a bang if you want the shape to be more dramatic around the face. Invest in a great blow dryer and a medium round brush to help you create a fluffy and piece-y style. Try Redken Shine Flash Glass on your chocolate pixie bob for an extremely shiny finish.

#8: Dark Copper Pixie Bob with Layers

Here’s the perfect look for a busy woman on the go – a messy, dark copper pixie bob with layers and a tapered nape. This style frames the face while keeping it light and airy. To create this look, use a round brush or flat iron to add texture. You may want to apply a styling product to add hold and texture. To keep the layers in check, I recommend finishing with light hairspray.

#9: Auburn Bixie with Long Layers

An auburn bixie with long layers is a great way to keep your hair long in the front, but short in the back. This will make your hair appear fuller yet still have some length to it. A bixie haircut is one of the most sought-after hairstyles right now because it offers the fullness a pixie gives you and the versatility of a bob. If you can, book your haircut appointment every 3-4 weeks to maintain this short, skin-tight length at the nape of your neck.

#10: Feathered Pixie Bob

You can go a variety of styles when you have a short haircut. In my experience, a feathered pixie bob gives you the best of both worlds. You have enough length to create styles from smooth to tousled. Yet, it’s short enough that you can have a put together style when you put the least amount of time in styling.

#11: Long Pixie Bob with Blonde Balayage

A long pixie bob with blonde balayage is a classy chic style that everyone will notice! Doing some heavier balayage pieces through your hair will give you beautiful dimension. I suggest styling your hair with some waves to make the blonde stand out.

#12: Messy Dark Brown Pixie Bob

When it comes to a pixie bob, wear it with a messy texture to give a lived-in feel and keep things modern. Avoid cutting too short around the face and ears to keep things softer and more feminine. This also gives you more versatility. Ask for longer layers from the crown forward with texture. I recommend using a dry finishing product like a texture spray or a matte paste. Both will create definition and hold without a wet, shiny look.

#13: Lovely Tapered Bixie with Dark Roots

Consider a lovely tapered bixie with dark roots. A mixture of a bob and a pixie, a bixie is a perfect length to keep you looking soft. The ears are kept covered and they can be tucked behind for versatility. If you like the rounded back, one of the best ways to achieve this is to use a small round brush in that area. A bixie is s short classy cut that is here to stay.

#14: Soft Rose Gold Bixie

A soft rose gold bixie is a great haircut if you usually get a shorter haircut and want to try the feel of a pixie without the commitment of one. The soft rose gold is also another nice way to introduce fashion colors if you’ve never had them before. These softer tones don’t tend to last more than a week or two, so don’t forget to book your 4-6 week appointment to refresh your color and cut.

#15: Stunning Brown and Blonde Bixie

A brown and blonde bixie is the perfect contrasting hair color for women who can’t decide between having brown or blonde tones in their hair. Keeping brown at your root area will not only create depth but also make it a much easier grow-out if you have naturally brown hair. Not all blonde hair has to be high maintenance. Just ask your stylist for a balayage if you want blended blonde highlights.

Fine through thick densities can wear a long pixie bob cut. Instead of a stacked style, this embraces shorter pieces for an edgy finish. Make sure you find a stylist that specializes in razor cutting and/or short haircuts for the best experience.

#18: Red Stacked Bixie with Layers

One of the best short crops is the stacked bixie with layers. This eye-catching haircut and red color will look gorgeous on you if you are looking for a longer pixie and a color change.

#19: Textured Pixie Bob with Bangs and Sideburns

Add sideburns to your textured pixie bob with bangs for a nice wispy flair. A pixie can be tailored to suit your face shape by adding texture and movement in the right places. Adding some wispy sideburns will help to frame the face. Bangs can be worn straight across or pushed to the side when cut longer with texture.

#20: White Blonde Layered Pixie Bob

Ask your stylist to add some disconnected layering to add more texture and movement. A pixie bob will always be easy to style using a blow dryer and flat brush against the round of the head. You can round brush the top and front if more volume is needed. Always finish with a texture cream or spray to add definition.

A pixie bob haircut looks best on older women and can be cut to require less maintenance. You only need some light blow dry styling using a flat brush and the round of the head to create volume and movement. Once dry, use some paste or pomade to add piece-y ness /texture. This cut can be done symmetrically or asymmetrically for more flair.

A neck-length tapered pixie bob is the perfect low-maintenance cut. The short back will keep the hair off your neck and cool you off, while the long front gives you some fun length to play with.

#23: Layered Pixie Bob

This haircut’s layered pieces make for a great tousled edgy look. My advice for anyone seeking to get a similar haircut is to be prepared to style it out. I like to compare this haircut to getting a fringe (bangs) because to keep it looking in shape and easy to style, frequent trips to the salon for maintenance work are required.

#25: The Bixie Cut

If you’re thinking about a pixie bob, opt for a bixie cut. For round and square face shapes a bixie cut, or pixie bob, will balance out your feature. Ask for an asymmetrical part and long pieces on the side-swept bang in the front. This creates an illusion of softer elongated features. Add short edgy texture in the back to compete the pixie look and give you body and roundness through the crown.

There’s something about a fine chop that feels and looks so liberating. This one is for those who are always on the move but still find time to let loose.

#38: Gorgeous Pixie Back View

Go for a haircut that is versatile, like an undercut pixie bob hairstyle. You could wear it on both sides and in the middle. It’s clean, fun, and edgy all at the same time. This haircut is a high-maintenance haircut where you should get it cleaned up every 6-8 weeks in order to keep the shaping of the cut. This cut is great if you have a face shape that is oval, square, and round, and is ideal if you have finer hair and would like a little more volume. All you need is to add a little mousse, round brush, and 5 minutes to blow dry, and you are done.

A pixie bob is a perfect cut for women looking to transition into a more mature style and the layering can help make it easier to style. A pixie bob can be quite easy to style and maintain but often it does require at least some small amount of daily styling. Maintenance appointment needs can vary based on how clean and fresh you like your haircut to look. Those who prefer a clean cut appearance will likely need more trim and shaping appointments than those who prefer a more relaxed and lived-in style.

#40: Stacked Pixie Bob

A stacked pixie bob is perfect for women who want to change up their usual bob or pixie. This style keeps the face-framing of a chin-length bob intact while chopping the back like a pixie.
