What Is A Mixie? (AKA—Mullet + Pixie)

The unique cut is a perfect blend of shabby chic with a modern twist. The Mixie is a mullet and pixie cut that can be completely customized from front to back. Your client can choose if they want more of a "mullet Mixie" or "pixie Mixie" by deciding how long they'd like their fringe, layers or perimeter. 

Key Elements Of A Mixie:

  • Cropped fringe
  • Soft, defined texture (real & faux)
  • Tapered neckline
  • Short layers 
  • Graduation in length

Cutting A Mixie: 

You want to accentuate the essence of both a mullet and a pixie. This requires adding (and in some cases eliminating) texture and weight in certain areas.

  • Transitions effortlessly from wet to dry cutting—this is key to create precise layers and texture for a Mixie.
  • Precision tip is designed to point cut tight corners and hard to reach angles.
  • Blades are razor-sharp through entire shaft to eliminate snagging and tugging.
