Megan Thee Stallion just unveiled a new fiery red bixie haircut on Instagram, reminding everyone that hot girl season is year-round. Megan initially posted a photo of her new hair on Halloween as part of her “real hot girl sh*t” costume, in which she transformed into the literal embodiment of a hot girl — flames and all. However, her makeup artist, Priscilla Ono, posted more details shortly after, sans Megan’s ornate headdress and whimsical editing, showing the trendy bixie style in all its glory. “Hot girl Meg❤️????” Ono captioned the photos, giving fans a closer look at Megan’s red-orange hue and dramatically shorter length.
The bixie, which describes a length somewhere between a bob and a pixie cut, has proven to be one of the most trendy styles of the year, worn by celebrities like Ciara, Meagan Good, and even Kendall Jenner. It’s an edgier take on a classic look, and is the perfect choice for a hot girl autumn.
April Peele, a hairstylist at Salon SCK in New York City, previously described the bixie cut to POPSUGAR as “shorter than a bob, longer than a pixie, and with the hair off the neck and midface,” although she says you’ll often find “longer areas of hair in the front [that] keep the style flirty and sexy.” In Megan’s case, she kept her hair slicked back and her edges carefully laid to keep the attention on her smoldering red makeup. The end result was a stunning and sultry look we hope she keeps around.
