A middle part blunt cut bo is a short to medium haircut, sectioned in the center to frame the face. It flatters most face shapes, creating balance by highlighting or concealing certain features.
Annah Petrauskas, a salon owner in Canada, agrees that the middle part gives women a clean, elegant look. She adds that “with a blunt cut, the simplicity and precision create high impact, proving that less is more.”
At times, hair that’s parted right in the middle draws the eyes to the asymmetry of the face, side to side. Therefore, Petrauskas suggests having the part slightly off-center for a much more flattering finish.
Face shape is the #1 aspect to consider when deciding the best length for a middle-parted bob haircut. “For instance, lengths closer to the chin flatter longer face shapes. Lengths past the chin suit shorter face shapes,” Petrauskas explains.
Always discuss with your stylist your desired bob haircut idea before going for it. Talk about the maintenance, grow-out process, styling routine, and suitability.
“It’s important for you and the stylist to communicate. Agree upon maintenance so that the expectations are aligned,” says Petrauskas.

If you can, use a curl wand to create a wave with straight ends, then use texture spray to hold.
