A blunt bob with bangs is a short to medium-length chop with strands cut across the forehead. With no layers and texture, this shows off a straight and flawless perimeter of hair ends. It creates an illusion of a thicker density and a healthier-looking finish! If you’re craving a drastic change from your current style, opt for this stylish and edgy haircut.
Like Kacy Hill, Emma Roberts, and Rose Byrne, any woman can make a blunt bob with fringe work. You just have to consider if it suits you based on your hair texture and face shape.
Stylist Nicole May from Florida also mentions that maintenance is vital, too. “Know if you’re willing to commit to an appointment schedule. To retain the shape, you must get a trim every six weeks,” she adds.
The fringe, meanwhile, demands styling time and effort. As other ladies do, you’ll have to blow dry and flat iron it daily. This type of bob isn’t for women looking for a wash-and-go style.
When it comes to styling, Nicole recommends a blow-dry cream. “I love 7 Seconds BlowOut Creme by Unite,” she says. “It’s excellent for all hair types and provides heat protection, as well as moisture and shine.”

#38: Mid-Length Blunt Cut
This mid-length blunt cut is perfect for pulling off a sleek hairstyle. If you have been wearing a textured look and want a change this time, go for this bob with bangs. It pairs with bangs to conceal a big forehead.
This mid-length blunt cut is a modern and fresh twist on a classic Cleopatra-esque haircut and was created by hairstylist Lucy Haydon-Knowell of the UK.
“Use a product with a bit of hold such as Styling Cream by Sacha Juan. You can work this into damp hair, then when you dry the hair it holds the hair in place. A little bit really does go a long way so start with a drop and add more if you need it,” she notes.
She goes on to explain, “start at the ends of the hair and work your way up to the root. Never apply a finishing oil or serum to the root area of the hair. It will weigh down the style and can make the hair look greasy.”
#39: Blunt Bob for Wavy Hair
This blunt bob for wavy hair is ideal for thin-density hair. It features the perfect length to keep the tresses appearing fuller. The waves, meanwhile, add extra movement and volume. These waves also restrain the hair from looking flat.
This blunt wavy bob hairstyle is a classic French bob, inspired by the roaring 1920s, with a bit of a modern take. It was created by salon owner and hairstylist Kali of Edmonton, AB.
“What makes it a french bob cut is the jaw-length and bangs hitting just above the eyebrows. Typically a french bob hits around the cheekbone to jawline area. However, there are slightly longer versions,” explains Kali.
Usually, this style is an all one-length, blunt cut, that gives the blunt ends an extremely full appearance. It’s the perfect at-home look due to its effortless nature. This is a wash-and-go style the point is to look as though you woke up like this – supernatural.
Kali goes on to say, “the classic French bob is really a show-stopping cut and style. It’s a statement cut and will definitely require confidence to rock it. Depending on your face shape you may ask for something a bit different:”
For heart shapes keep this cut around the jawline.
For a rounder face shape keep the cut below chin-length.
An oval face shape can wear anything from super short to long.
For a square face shape, cut either above or below the jawline. Avoid hitting directly at it.
“Ask your stylist for a blunt bob, hitting wherever is most flattering for your face shape. Request some internal layering if you have thicker hair,” Kali adds. “Leave it blunt and full for a finer texture, and pair it with a fringe. You can go for a fuller fringe, curtain bangs, or a piecier one- it’s completely up to your own style.”
#40: Blunt Curly Bob with Bangs
“This black blunt curly bob with bangs is a French bob and it was cut with texturizing scissors,” explains hairstylist CJ MacPherson of the UK.
If your dark hair is on the frizzy side, MacPherson suggests you use a mix of Eleven Australia Frizz Control Shaping Cream and Keep My Curl Defining Cream. “Then work around the head with the diffuser until dry. Finish off with the Dry Powder Volume Paste to add definition and width.”
A short blunt bob with bangs is a wonderful style if you have some natural movement in your curly hair. Learning to diffuse can take a little time. But once you have the hang of it, it’s always quicker than blowdrying and heat styling.
#41: Blunt Cut Bob with Bangs
Here’s a blunt cut bob with bangs, and its chop is on point! It does a great job on thin tresses since that’s the best hair type to show off the perimeter. This haircut looks lovely on straight hair, so use flat iron when styling.
This blunt hair with bangs is a classic, squared bob. It was created by cutting specialist and stylist Jason Jamiel of Las Vegas, NV.
“The length is the same from front to back which allows the hair to swing more evenly. The ends were cut blunt to maintain weight and to give a precision edge,” explains Jamiel. “The fringe was also cut blunt to establish the desired length. Then it was elevated and heavily textured to create a more razored look. The result is a classic look with a fresh, modern edge.”
Jamiel feels a bob haircut always has a timeless feel and is a great choice for women looking for versatility. “It can be worn flat iron straight with a shine spray finish or you can use a surf spray and go for fun beach waves. It works well on a variety of hair types and textures,” he adds.
The only thing to consider with a blunt bob hairstyle is your face shape. The eye will naturally be drawn to the perimeter of the haircut. If you have a round face shape, it would be more flattering to have the perimeter sit slightly above or below the jawline.
#42: Platinum Blonde Blunt Cut with See-Through Bangs
