Have you heard of the mixie? Well, if you haven’t, you are in the right place.
This haircut is going to be the hottest styling trend this year. The mixie, a combination of pixie and mullet, is perfect because it’s cool, edgy, AND manageable.
"A mixie is an edgy haircut that is longer in the back, like a mullet, and short in the front, like a pixie," celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho explains. Where it falls exactly will depend on you and your stylist, but it will most likely involve bangs that land around your temple and a mullet that stops somewhere near your shoulders.
"It has a '70s feel with the shape of the bangs up front and the length in the back. It gives an edgier feel to short hair," says Aaron Grenia, the co-founder of IGK Hair Care.
"Mixie as a haircut feels uniquely different from what we’ve been seeing, but also has a slight '70s retro vibe that feels familiar," Cho adds.
"Just like a mullet, it’s a vibe as much as it’s a haircut," stylist Sarah Cunningham explains. "You really want to seek out a stylist who’s known for edgier haircuts," Cho says, recommending "someone who gets the look and can also understand how to alter it depending on your face shape and texture."
Depending on your texture, it’s a pretty low maintenance haircut because of the loose length around the hairline," Cho says. "You can let it go longer than a short, tighter pixie."
