30 Best Blunt Cut Bob Haircuts for Every Face Shape

Blunt cut bob haircuts

A blunt cut bob is a shorter hairstyle that’s cut into a straight line at the ends. Bobs have proven themselves to be transcending time with its endless variations.

One of the more popular versions of this is the blunt bob because they’re haircuts without layers. Also known as soft blunt cuts, this sleek hairstyle is great for women with oval, square, or heart-shaped faces.

Blunt bob haircuts are a super customizable and versatile cut that can fit any type and texture of hair. The bluntness of the ends gorgeously emphasizes the jaw area and brings a strong and flattering look to its wearer.

Classy yet simple and straightforward, blunt haircuts ensure comfort and easiness in styling. Pair it with a complementary hair color, some gorgeous waves, or a stellar fringe, and you’re ready to go!
