When it comes to hairstyles, Kristen Stewart has pretty much done it all. From buzz cuts to the pixie crop, she plays by her own rules and never follows the trends. Her latest look might just inspire you to switch up your own style: Stepping out in LA to support her fiancée, Dylan Meyer, the Twilight star showed off an excellent “mixie” cut.
If you’re not already aware of the mixie, it’s a cross between a pixie cut and a mullet—think shorter, pixie-esque framing around the front of the face, and slightly more length and layers at the back of the head, like the mullet. The style is best worn with a mussed-up finish and delivers instant edge. On the right person, like Kristen Stewart, it looks ridiculously cool.
Working as well with curls as it does for straighter hair, the mixie sits on the right side of grunge. It’s prettier than the mullet but edgier than the pixie, making it a perfect style for those who want to make a statement but keep it chic. If you do get one cut in, make use of texturizing creams, like Ouai’s Texturizing Matte Pomade, to add grit and movement into the cut.
