The wheel of fashion turns once again, and again we’re in awe of the blunt bob hairstyle! Of course, it’s nothing new, it’s a style that’s been in and out for the longest time. And we can see why – it’s pretty much universally flattering, whether you’re a Hollywood A-lister strutting her stuff on the red carpet, or a casual mom picking up the kids from sports practice. The blunt bob just works.
But what makes a bob “blunt,” you ask? The style is cut straight, with minimal layering, and it ends somewhere in the chin area, emphasizing the jaw area. Nothing fancy, it’s minimalism at its finest. The fun part is you can wear it regardless of your face shape, and regardless of your hair texture. It’s the dream cut. A blunt bob looks good on both straight and wavy hair, with bangs or with a parting, with thinner or thicker hair. And if it’s good enough for Beyonce, it’s good enough for us!
