What's the difference between a bixie cut and a bob?

Two of 2023's biggest hair cut trends may have you wondering - the bixie cut vs. bob: Which short hair style is right for you?
First of all, both styles are flattering on a variety of face shapes and hair types, so you can't go wrong with either!  BUT there are some key differences between the two:

One of the most obvious differences between a bixie cut and a bob is the length. A bixie cut is typically shorter than a bob, falling somewhere between the chin and earlobes. A bob, on the other hand, can be any length from chin-length to shoulder-length.


Another difference between the two hairstyles is the amount of layers. A bixie cut often has more layers than a bob, which gives it a more textured and voluminous look. A bob, on the other hand, is typically cut with fewer layers, which gives it a sleeker and more polished appearance.


Bangs are optional with both the bixie cut and the bob, but they are more common with the bixie cut. Bangs can be styled in a variety of ways, from blunt to side-swept to wispy. Don't get us wrong though, a bob and bangs are also a great coupling!


The bixie cut and the bob can be styled in a variety of ways, but they each have a distinctive look. The bixie cut is often styled with a tousled, textured finish, while the bob is typically styled to be sleek and polished.
Styling your bixie cut: We'd recommend a texturising powder like Davroe's Cloud Volumising Texture Powder.
Styling your bob: Get yourself a flat iron (which you can create a sleek look OR waves with), like the Muk Style Stick.
Which hairstyle is right for you?
The best way to decide which hairstyle is right for you is to consult with a hairstylist who can assess your hair type and face shape. They can help you choose a style that flatters your features and is easy to maintain.

Here are some additional things to consider when choosing between a bixie cut and a bob:

Your hair type:
If you have fine hair, a bixie cut may be a good option, as the layers will help to add volume. If you have thick hair, a bob may be a better choice, as it will be easier to manage.
Your face shape:
A bixie cut can flatter most face shapes, but it is particularly flattering for oval and heart-shaped faces. A bob is also a versatile style that can flatter many face shapes.
Your lifestyle:
If you have a busy lifestyle, a bixie cut may be a good option, as it is low-maintenance. If you want a more polished look, a bob may be a better choice.
