Pixie bob haircuts are more versatile than your average pixie haircut because the length is slightly longer which means that you can do a lot more in terms of styling. That’s not to say that these styles are more difficult! As with pixie cuts, a pixie bob haircut is equally low maintenance. Whether you’re going out for a night on the town or getting ready to go into the office, you can style and go in under 10 minutes. Doesn’t that sound like a dream? If so, it could be time for the chop!
Going the full pixie can be intimidating and so, we hope you can find some middle ground between a pixie and a bob with these pixie bob haircut ideas. These cuts range from styles that scream “rebel girl” to sophisticated and mod. And, for most, you can achieve either look with styling your versatile cut. We wanted to better understand the trends around this style so we checked in with our favorite stylists on social media to discover which looks were turning heads these days! Now, let’s talk pixie bob!
Get Inspired with These Flirty & Fun Pixie Bob Haircut Ideas!
A Pixie with Poof
Go for some volume in the back and sides for fuller thicker heads of hair. You can go longer in the bangs for a more dramatic look or do as this person has done and kept things rather tight around the face.
Shaggy Pixie Bob Haircut
Chunky layers will give you some edge in a shaggy take on the pixie bob. This style offers so much texture and visual interest.
Looooong In the Bangs
With very long bangs you can live your mod glam rock goddess fantasy. With bangs this length it will take you more time to style, but that could be totally worth it for you.
Lean Into the Pixie Back
For even less styling stress, go full pixie in the back and bob in the front for a cool asymmetrical style that feels very rebel girl.
Reimagine Your Part
Part your hair on the opposite side for a pixie bob haircut with even more volume. You know you want to live a little!
Asymmetrical & Shaved
A good under shave will give you an edge and a total rock and roll look. You can even do as this person has and add a couple of lines in the shaved bit for even more attitude.
Curls & Shag
For a youthful look, add some curl to your pixie bob haircut. You can do this all around or just in the back for a subtle addition of more texture.
Pixie Bob with Blunt Bangs
You can have a ton of fun with bangs to go along with your pixie bob haircut. This person has gone with a dramatic, blunt bang that cuts a clean line across her forehead. Go for something similar for a contemporary and fresh look!
With Baby Bangs
Get yourself some micro or baby bangs to go with your bob and you’ll walk away with a punk rock look that frames your face well. Choppy layers to go along with those choppy bangs are encouraged but not necessary.
Electric Pixie Bob
If you’re not afraid of color, consider the rainbow electric pixie bob like this one that really shows off all of the dazzling layers and textures of the cut. This look would brighten up even the gloomiest of days.
Pixie Half Meets Bob Half
What you can’t see in this photo is that the other half looks like a complete bob. It’s not until this person’s head is turned that it is revealed to be a complete pixie on the left side. For an edgy-cool look, you can’t do better!
With the Long Strands
Buck convention and ask your stylist for some long strands throughout for a playful look that shares that you don’t play by the rules.
Razor Pixie Bob Haircut
Sometimes referred to as the “razor pixie” this is a pixie bob that’s cropped short in the back like a pixie but then the front turns to a bob. The hair is cut with a razor for added texture and visual interest, especially around the face.
Approaching the Wolf Cut
The wolf cut has emerged as one of the hottest hair trends this year. It’s essentially a shag haircut but with a short layer that sits on top to frame the face better and to add volume all around. You can transform it into a pixie bob by cutting the back layer very short and allowing the layers in the front to remain shoulder-length.
We call this look the “micro bob” but it might also be described as a reimagined bowl cut. It’s under shaved in the back like a pixie but a bob style sits on top.
Under Cut & Sharp Lines
For a more blunt look, consider a dramatic undercut on the back and underneath the sides and a top layer that is razor-sharp for a somewhat severe yet pleasing pixie bob haircut.
Stacked Pixie Bob
Colorful layers underneath make this stacked bob, which looks like a bob on top of another bob, really stand out. Mullets are in right now but to avoid that look, you can chop the back as you would a standard pixie bob haircut.
Get Into the Waves
Aren’t the waves of this woman’s hair captivating? You can’t see it well but her bangs extend down to mid-forehead which gives this cut more of a bob look even though it’s more of a pixie cut.
Baby Pixie Bob Haircut
You can take a pixie bob almost all the way to pixie territory with a cut like this that is essentially a combination of a classic bowl cut and a short crop. Can you say effortless? Imagine only having to style this every morning.
The Pixie Lob
One of the most popular trends that’s slowing slightly today is the pixie lob. Here, we find a beautifully textured lob that’s cropped very short on the back. It’s a happy medium that a lot of folks really enjoy.
Braided Pixie Bob Haircut
Medium Length Pixie Bob
Here’s a good middle-of-the-road length for a short pixie bob with a medium-length bang. It’s cut more like a pixie on the left side but like a short bob in the back.
Asymmetrical & Highly Textured
For a one-of-a-kind look get your pixie bob asymmetrical in more places than one. We’ve got bangs that are all over the place with one side much longer than the other. There’s also a ton of texture cut into the front to give this look plenty of originality.
Elvis Pixie Bob
A dramatic undercut with curls that are styled forward into bangs proves a winning look. You can choose to shave the other side as well for a cleaner look or get a short bob on that side for something more asymmetrical.
This pixie bob haircut is cropped short in the back with a baby bob with bangs at the front. The way the hair comes over the years makes us think this deserves to be in the bob category but you might also consider this a pixie cut with a lot of bang.
Pretty In Pink
Here’s a lux pink pixie bob haircut with a very tight bob at the front, a little longer than the last one we just saw. The stylist who shared this image explained that it was cut in this manner to grow out into a full bob. If you’ve got a shorter style and want ways to style it until it grows out, something similar might be perfect for you!
Warm It Up for Fall
So, you’ve landed on an asymmetrical pixie bob haircut, now you want to spice things up. The perfect solution could be some radically warm highlights that celebrate the fall season.
Pixie On Top, Bob On Bottom
For a cut that really hugs the face, consider a pixie on top with short layers and bangs and longer sides and back that are more like a bob. It’s the inverse of a lot of the styles we’ve shared with you so far.
Embrace the Swoop
This pixie bob haircut is undercut at the nap and slightly on the sides for a tailored look. The enviable swoop across the forehead here looks great on heart-shaped faces.
