Apparently, the 90s are not the only decade that celebrates a big comeback this year. When it comes to “hairstyles”, the 70s are also all the rage and the mixie cut – a combination of mullet (stands for “short in the front, long in the back” , also called ” Mullet”) and pixie – is a prime example. The short length and shaggy haircut are proof that your hair can be both fancy and low maintenance. So, if you’re toying with the idea of getting a rebellious look without having to constantly worry about maintenance, a mixie haircut could be the one for you.

What is a sassy mixie cut?
The smart haircut is already up to date
Mixie haircuts have been all the rage for about a year now. With so many, different types of pixie haircuts hitting the market, it’s only logical that the mixie gets its time too. Every year there is a daring haircut that dominates the beauty trend reports and tops the list of most requested hairstyles for those of us brave enough for a change. For 2022, a haircut is emerging that has already taken the reigns: the mixie cut.
The coolest hairstyle trend in 2022
The mixie is a really fun, edgy haircut that is taking over in the fall and winter of 2022. As mentioned above, it is a cross between a mullet and a pixie. The look is a renaissance of the wolf or shag retro haircut that we saw this year, and it is ideal for those who want to experiment with short hair.
The hairstyle is tousled, wild, cute and easy to maintain at the same time. It’s spiked in the front and easy to style, especially if you frame it with some hair gel. Exactly where the haircut falls will depend on you and your hairstylist, but most likely it will consist of a fringe that ends around your temple and a mullet that ends just before your shoulders. Think Miley Cyrus in her best rocker days.
The mixie cut is a pretty sharp departure from the hair trends of the hour , like long layers and soft curtain pony sections.
Instead, the key to this hairstyle is to embrace the rough edges and the rebellious retro look that comes with it. Mixie is a haircut that is very different from what we’ve seen before, but it also has a slight 70s retro look that feels familiar. Instead of being stuck in the 90s, this style goes back two decades.
Finding the right hairstylist
Just like a mullet, the mixie hairstyle is both a mood and a haircut. However, with an edgy, short haircut like this, there’s a little more room for error. In other words: Choose your hairstylist wisely. You should really look for a hairdresser who is known for edgier hairstyles, someone who understands the look and also knows how to change it depending on your face shape and structure.
No matter where you go and which hairdresser you visit, be sure to bring plenty of pictures of the mixie cut to show him. It is always advisable to bring reference pictures to ensure that both the client and the hairdresser have a clear idea and clear expectations.
How to style a mixie cut?
You should style a mixie haircut according to your preferences and wishes. The styling itself takes only 5 minutes in the morning. All you need is your hair styling cream and a small fine-toothed comb. Be sure to brush your hair and work with clean, blow-dried hair.
Style your hair sideways or with a center parting, depending on what you want and prefer. Add a little hairspray to make the hairstyle last. Once in place, your mixie hairstyle won’t move for hours.
This haircut is also not so costly that you have to keep going to the hairdresser to maintain it. Depending on your texture, this hairstyle is pretty low maintenance because the length is loose around the hairline. You can wear it longer than a short, tight pixie.
If you want to keep the hairstyle ultra fresh, you should get it cut every five to eight weeks.
Who does the mixie haircut suit?
Fortunately, the mixie look works for all hair types and textures, whether you are younger or older.
Styling for ladies with loose curls and wavy hair might be a little easier. But that doesn’t mean that women who don’t fall into these categories (for example, fine, straight or frizzy hair) can’t go with the hair trend. With the right tools and products, it is definitely possible, but be aware that it requires a greater commitment.
