Trends come and go each season, but with a return to the classics this season these are the cuts everyone will be asking for in the salon. Does your go-to look make the cut? If not, try on one of these iconic shapes with a modern flair this season.
The Pixie and Bixie
When we envision the classic pixie, images of Twiggy alongside the most perfect cat eye instantly appear. While versions have waved between shorter and edgier to longer and more mullet or “Mixie” like, this season, the pixie will be reinvented with more choppy and disconnected layers for flair. In addition to this, the Bixie will be popular which is a mix between a bob and a pixie - which will favor simpler shapes and slightly longer weight lines. Pair your pixie with a smooth blowout or slight curls for a classic look.

Whether you’re looking for a swift change or want to add more volume (and drama) to your look, the bob is one of the quickest ways to get there. Taking off a few inches and adding a blunt line can instantly add the appearance of thickness to hair. To recreate the style at home, invest in a round brush and a heat protectant.

If you’re on the hunt for a shorter style but are worried how it will work with your hair type, the lob is a great starting point. Slightly longer than the traditional bob and often with more shattered textured and a softer line, this cut works well on wavy and curly textures. To accentuate the style, opt for undone bends or soft waves.

Texture is worked into every angle of this cut, making it a natural choice for anyone looking for an easy wash and wear style. You can either opt for a short shag — the ideal length to get the most out of this cut or incorporate elements of the shag (ie. face-framing layers) with long hair to add movement and interest to longer shapes. This look is best paired with texture (natural or not) and products to add volume.

Yes, long layers are back — we’re actually not sure if they ever went out of style. Effortlessly long hair paired with undone or natural waves will be a much-coveted style this season. This may take a bit of effort on your part to grow your hair, but once you’ve got the length, getting the look is easy. Opt for air drying techniques or rough drying and the addition of leave-in conditioners or oils and serums to moisturize and nourish hair while also creating a perfect finish.
