26 Blunt Cut, Side-Part Bob Haircuts for a Sleek Look

A blunt cut side part bob creates a sleek hairstyle that ensures instant volume in tresses. The hair is parted to either side of the head, allowing modern women to achieve a bolder and more polished look.

Thin and fine-haired ladies are the ones who can enjoy this haircut the most. According to stylist Karen Renèe Leight of Los Angeles, CA, “Having the blunt edges make the hair appear thicker and voluminous.” Find yourself a stylist that can execute this bob cut very well.

It’s important to wear your mane the same way it was parted when it was cut to avoid looking uneven.

Renèe explains, “A blunt bob is a very precise cut, so the styling needs to be, as well. You’ll lose the clean lines if you change the parting.”

Lifestyle is one of the things that women must consider before getting a chop. “For instance, if your job requires you to tie your hair back, a blunt bob isn’t your best option,” says Renèe.

When styling, Renèe suggests a good texturizing product. It enhances the blunt edge and creates a powerful finish.

However, understand that a short blunt bob cut may limit you to only one or two different ways of styling your locks. The chop may not be ideal if you switch your style more often.
