A chin-length blunt bob is a short haircut with a sharp, straight line at the ends. Hairstylist Yasmin from Boca Raton, FL, explains which type of woman benefits from this chop the most. “I recommend this blunt cut for women with thin, fine hair as it can appear thicker and fuller. It’s also great for women with high cheekbones. However, if you have a round face, this short haircut will only make your face shape appear wider,” she notes.
On the other hand, thick-haired ladies must be diligent when considering short haircuts. Their locks can get too poofy when cut blunt and one-length. A dry-cutting technique is a much better option when getting a blunt bob. “If the hair is dry, you’ll see how it naturally falls, making it easier to cut,” Yasmin explains. Otherwise, if the hair is cut wet, it’ll shrink, and you’ll find cowlicks you didn’t know were there.
Understand the maintenance before diving into this hair trend. “To keep the sharpness of a chin-length bob, you should go to the salon every six weeks,” Yasmin suggests.
