Hmm… This Haircut Looks Familiar

Let’s throw it back to the ’80s for a hot second, when Lady Diana’s street style and short feathered haircut influenced the world’s biggest beauty trends. Flash forward to 2021, Princess Diana is EVERYWHERE. Models like Hailey Bieber have nodded to Diana’s iconic fashion style, we’ve all binged “The Crown” and hit the theaters to see Kristen Stewart portray pop culture’s princess. ✨ A few decades later, the trends have returned. 


In some ways, the bixie appears to be Princess Diana’s famous ’80s haircut with a 2021 update: Heavily layered, texturized and cropped in between the length of a short bob and a pixie. 



The Key Elements Of The Bixie

“Basically, it’s equal part bob and equal part pixie,” says ARC™ Scissors cutting expert Briana Cisneros (@brianacisneros). “It [has] a beautiful grow out as well, that [the client] could grow into a full blown bob.” If a client requests this cut, here are a few important factors Briana shared in a recent IG post


  • Key terms to know: Shattered, texturized and layered
  • This look utilizes both razor- and scissor-cutting techniques for achieving maximum movement. 
  • Consult with the client about what length they want, and what’s most suitable for their face shape and lifestyle. 
  • Pair with short curtain bangs if a client requests fringe.
