- Sarah Hyland debuted a "bixie" haircut at the 2021 People's Choice Awards.
- A bixie is a combination of a bob and a pixie, and it's set to be a huge trend this winter.
- Hyland's new haircut is by Nikki Lee.
Unlike the curtain-bangs club, there are still very few celebrity members of the bixie club, but at least now they have Sarah Hyland among them. At the 2021 People's Choice Awards, Hyland debuted a super-short new hairstyle, which is quite the departure from her previous shoulder-length look.
Celebrity hairstylist Nikki Lee gave Hyland the big chop. "She was bored and wanted a change . . . something we've never done before, so we went short and added a full bang," Lee said in a statement to POPSUGAR. "It's our take on the 'bixie.'" On Instagram, Hyland posted a selfie of her new look and captioned it, "Bob-idi-Bob-da-BANG-da-Bang Bang," which fiancé Wells Adams came up with, according to his comment asking for "Caption credit please."
Lee joked on her Instagram, "Who knew I cut bobs and bangs?!" since most of her clients in Los Angeles have long hair. She added, "It's been exciting for my girls to want these changes lately." The bixie is predicted to be one of this winter's biggest haircut trends, and so far, that's tracking. "It's shorter than a bob, longer than a pixie, and with the hair off the neck and midface," April Peele, a hairstylist at Salon SCK in New York City, told POPSUGAR in November. It's less maintenance than a pixie haircut and allows more room for styling.
