A long blunt bob is a one-length cut that usually lands right on the shoulders or collarbone. It looks great on any woman, and with the right chop, it can enhance and accentuate facial features. What makes the blunt lob cut extra awesome is how versatile it is, as well.
Depending on the natural hair type and how you want to wear it, this lob may sometimes require more styling. According to Wisconsin-based stylist Maggie Banks, “A big misconception is that short hair equals less styling required, and that isn’t always true!”
One key question for the stylist is: What styling products and routines do I need?
“I recommend blow drying or air drying the hair in a product with a holding element,” Banks explains. “This will help the style hold all day, minimize frizz, and make restyling for next-day hair easier. Something like a sea salt spray air-dried or even a gel blow-dried and brushed through works great.”
A shoulder-length blunt lob haircut like this tends to flip out. When this happens, use a blow dryer and hot tools. Use a heat protector and keep your hot tools at a lower temp, too.
Before getting a chop, make sure you also ask your stylist, “How often do I need to come in to maintain this cut?”
Banks says that a trim every 6-8 weeks is essential to keep a long bob that’s blunt. But since it grows out well, and if you are okay with getting a longer length, feel free to spread out the appointments a bit.
Go bold and imitate Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian, or Katy Perry’s blunt lob hairstyle.

#1: Soft Blonde Blunt Lob with No Fringe
If you want a sleek and modern look, your best bet is the trendy soft blonde blunt lob with no fringe and middle part. Spend time to perfect this style – it’ll be worth it! With its length just below the shoulders, this cut works on all face shapes and hair textures. This low-maintenance style will still require regular trims to keep everything looking neat.
#2: Ash Blonde Long Bubble Bob with Off-Center Part
The bubble bob hairstyle is the latest trend. It’s worn, sleek, and turned under. If you want this style, ask your stylist to cut your hair slightly longer than a traditional bob with a low-maintenance ash blonde color. This extra length will allow you to round off the style. Avoid adding layers, as they will remove the bluntness from your baseline. Also, an off-center parting can give your hair a softer look. When you dry your hair, use a round brush. Make the hair sit under by turning the brush inwards, towards the face.
#3: White-Blonde Blunt Lob
A blunt lob cut in a white-blonde shade is a trendy style. This length of the lob is highly versatile, as you can wear it up and down. For a bob vibe, wear it straight. Discuss with your stylist to choose the best length that suits your hair texture.
#4: Long Blunt Lob with Bangs and an Undercut
A hairstyle featuring a trimmed lob, straight bangs, and an undercut is visually powerful. If you have straight hair, this style would suit you. The style’s clean lines are best suited to sleek hair types. Request minimal layered trims, straight, short bangs, and one side shaved for the best outcome. Blow your hair out with a shine spray such as Redken’s Shine Flash and a round brush for a polished finish.

However, it’s important to consider your hair’s health and maintenance needs. Frequent coloring and heat styling may require additional care. Embrace this beautiful hairstyle and enjoy the versatility it brings to your look.
#9: The Bluntest Long Bob
If you have fine or thin hair, the long bob with no texture may be just your style. This haircut is ideal for stringy hair types. The drawback to this haircut is the need for more volume and texture. However, if you’re attempting to have healthy ends, this is a great route. Avoid going too short. The beauty of this haircut is the length around the face and chin.
#10: Soft Blunt Bob with Dimensional Highlights
One way to amplify a smokin’ bob is to add dimensional highlights to accent the cut. If you want to highlight your facial features, you can create a money piece. It should start at the root or farther down from the root, creating a shadow, depending on your face shape. Round-face shapes look great with asymmetrical highlights. A longer face shape looks better with a longer root shadow.
#11: Bright Money Piece on a Blunt Lob
Ask for a bright money piece on your long blunt bob. The key to remember is blunt cuts will always make your hair look thicker. So, if you have fine hair, this is a great choice, or if you want your hair to look thicker than it is. You can ask your stylist for a soft blend texture by doing slide cutting or using texturizing shears. Both will soften the shape.
#12: Blonde Blunt Lob with Dark Roots
A blonde long bob with dark roots is perfect for women searching for a classy hairstyle with a modern edge. Keeping a dark root with your blonde will not only create depth and dimension to your hair, but it will also grow out more naturally if you have darker hair naturally. This shadow root can be melted seamlessly into your blonde hair so you can wait a little longer between trips to the hair salon.
#13: Icy White Lob with Blunt Ends
Are you thinking of being icy white this season? I advise considering all factors like color history, budget, and a maintenance routine. This includes salon visits and product usage.

When having a lob cut, team it with a balayage. Ask for a bright face frame to show off your curtain bangs. If you can, keep the dark areas close to your natural color. This gives a great, seamless look. When styling, use a volumizing spray before drying. Tong away from your face, leaving the last 3rd out for a raw, lived-in look.
#16: Sun-Kissed Blunt Lob Style
A sun-kissed blunt lob style is a sleek look for the modern woman. To maintain this look, it’s best to get a haircut every 7-10 weeks. Adding a few highlights will be the key to enhancing the texture. Ask your stylist for a blunt baseline haircut with long layers and a few face-framing pieces.
#17: Extra Long Blunt Cut Lob
Try an extra long blunt cut lob; you won’t be sorry. If you want healthy-looking hair, my best advice is to cut your split ends off. Hair will always grow back, and don’t you want your hair to look fantastic? A lob is a great choice because it’s still long enough to pull back easily and will grow out quickly. Add loose waves with a 1 1/4-inch iron; you might love it.
#18: One-Length Blunt Lob

#39: Long Blunt Cut Bob with a Side Part

#44: Long Blunt Cut with Layers
This long blunt cut with layers is a very slight A-line with a blunt perimeter on the bottom. It was created by hairstylist Raven Lucero of Spokane, WA.
“There is enough of an angle that when the hair is tucked behind the ear, it provides the optical illusion of being one length,” says Lucero. “The front of the cut sits at the collarbone. There was no face-framing, but the nape of the neck took some weight out.”
A bob that is long and blunt feels both modern and timeless. Grazing the collarbone is the perfect length for trying out short hair. It is important with this haircut to ensure the length does not sit on top of the shoulder. Below the shoulder buys you an extra week or two between salon visits.
#45: Lob with Blunt Bangs on Thick Hair
Add waves to a lob with blunt bangs to achieve a stylish, more polished edge. Let the hair shine even brighter by painting it golden blonde. This lob with blunt bangs was created by stylist Stacy Syroka of Des Moines, IA.
If you have thick hair, Syroka says you’re not normally a good candidate for a blunt cut. She explains, “However, by removing weight in the hair around the nape of the neck, it seems this cut is perfect for thick-haired women. It’s also much more manageable for an on-the-go lifestyle.”
Syroka’s key styling tips include:
1. The goal is to create bends, not curls – you can use whichever kind of iron you’re comfortable with (flat, curling, wand).
2. Wait until the ironwork completely cools before running your fingers through.
3. Spray the finishing touches on top of and underneath the hair. Pinch with your fingers to mess it up and make it a little bigger.
#46: Very Long Blunt Bob
Consider a very long blunt bob that’s blunt and crisp, like this one created by hairstylist Caylee of Leawood, KS.
“This blunt, long bob is best for women with fine to medium textured hair,” says Caylee. “Blunt lob cuts are long enough to put up, but also very cute down or half up half down! It looks great straight to showcase how blunt it is but also great curled!”
