A blunt cut bob is a shorter hairstyle 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 a bob is the short blunt bob because they’re haircuts without layers. Also known as soft blunt cuts, these sleek hairstyles are flattering if you have an oval, square, or heart-shaped face.

Blunt bob haircuts are super customizable and versatile cuts that can fit any type and texture of hair. The bluntness of the ends will emphasize your jaw area and brings an intense and flattering look.
