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 of 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 are ready to go!

Brilliant Brown Bob
A brown blunt cut brings a youthful, refreshed feel to any woman who wants to change the way they feel with a new wavy hairstyle. This one was created by stylist Carlye Trogdon of Edmond, OK. “A lightly textured bob like this one is great for fine hair giving a fuller look that has movement,” says Trogdon.
Blunt bob cuts can be easy to style with loose, tousled curls, a curling iron, and a texture spray. Blunt bobs with the lived-in look are on-trend and easy to care for.
As for hair type, Trogdon says this look will give women with fine hair the appearance of having more hair. “For thicker hair, I’d recommend lots of razored texture and a slightly longer length and for thinner hair, less texture to the hair and a shorter length. It’s a great look for most face shapes with the slightest adjustment of length,” she explains.
Smashing Short Bob Cut
No-layer haircuts are a timeless style that can be worn at any age. “The bluntness of this bob gives it a modern edge and makes it relevant to our time,” says hair designer Maggie Banks of Milwaukee, WI.
Banks loves the versatility of a short haircut like this. “Even though it’s above the shoulder you can still wear your short hair in many different ways – pin straight, straight with textured blunt ends, beach waves, or even half up,” she explains.
“Expect to get more frequent haircuts if you are going from long hair to a bob cut,” says Banks. “I recommend visits to your hairdresser every 6ish weeks to keep the length just right!”
Blunt Bob with a Trendy Middle Part

Ideal Blunt Cut for Thick Hair
This look is a medium sleek bob. A blunt haircut is always on trend since the blunt bob was first done by the iconic Vidal Sassoon.
Ask your hairstylist to cut it in one length because it keeps its maximum density.
While blunt styles are often worn with straight hair, as it’s the best way to show the precision of the cut, they can work just as well with waves or textured hair.

Blunt Cut Bob With Bangs
This is an edgy bob – nice and blunt, featuring textured, wispy bangs. It was created by hairstylist Claire Flegler of Cairns, FNQ.
Flegler believes this complete hairstyle would be ideal for women who have a few minutes in the morning to put some effort into keeping their hair blunt.
“It is easily styled with dry powder/dry powder spray (depending on the density of the hair) to create that extra texture. This cut would complement someone with fine hair, to give them that “full bob” feel they are always after,” she adds.
Curly Blunt Bob with a Dashing Deep Side Part
“The curly blunt bob cut with a deep side part brings a modern and classic look at the same time,” says stylist Alex Paixão of Brazil.
Paixão says this type of curly hair cut is ideal for women that don’t have the courage to make a change.
“You can combine many types of styles, but it’s important your hair is well treated because after being cut off, the defined lines may highlight negative characteristics such as dry tips or porosity,” adds Paixão.
