A short blunt bob is one of those chic and classic cuts with a straight perimeter. They range from ear to chin-length, making the locks appear fuller and healthier. Haircuts can make or break anyone’s style, so let us help you choose the best one.
Justine Deal, a short hair specialist from Florida, recommends a short and blunt cut bob. It can work on any hair type and density. It’s perfect for fine, thin hair as it adds in a lot of internal texture for movement and versatility. “Curtain bangs are also a great idea if wanting a softer, more boho vibe,” she adds.
The bluntness of a cut can also go well on coarse, thick tresses. A regular trim is necessary, which can take every 5-6 weeks of a salon visit.
Another factor to consider is the face shape, according to Deal. “Make sure to ask for a cut that accentuates your best features and creates more balance.” She continues, “No two bobs are the same; they should all be customized to the client and what will look best on them!”
When styling short bobs, Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair is Deal’s fave. She says, “It’s a texturizing hair spray that helps to fatten up and expand the shape of your hair. It gives that effortless, cool-girl vibe.”

Blonding can prevent having a long style, to maximize visible thickness add zero elevation to your cut and keep the blonde the main attraction.

The money piece brings brightness and attention to the face while also softening the harshness of the blunt cut. Women with square faces or strong jawlines should be sure that if you try this cut, you keep the length slightly above or below the jaw as the harsh bluntness can accentuate the horizontal line and make the jaw look more strong, and defined.
