Blunt cuts for short hair
This low maintenance statement hair cut creates a blunt aesthetic on short hair, making it look sassy and fierce. Easy to wear and style, having the length above the ears allows you to show off your at home styling techniques (click here for tips) on straight, wavy or curly locks.
Blunt cuts – the bob
Does the idea of hair above the ears scare you? Let us introduce you to a shorter look with a blunt cut bob. This chic style is perfect for showing off your cheekbones while framing your face. Find out what hairstyle suits your face shape.
Blunt cuts for shoulder length hair
As one of the most popular and loved styles, blunt shoulder-length locks remain a stylist’s favourite. One of the best things about this look is that it’s completely versatile and suits all face shapes. With this look you have long hair for the benefits of styling (up and down looks) but your maintenance is of that of a short look, meaning that it’s super easy to look after and even grow out.
Blunt cut for long hair
When you think blunt cuts, it’s almost certain that you think shorter styles but fear not – if you have lenghtly locks, don’t worry you do not need to go shorter for a blunt cut. This statement look paired with long hair gives a sleek, modern and fresh style. An added bonus for a blunt cut in long hair is that your locks will look healthier and thicker meaning no rats tails! If your hair grows quickly or you use heat appliances daily, remember to get regular trims to keep those ends looking fresh and maintained.
If you like your layers but also the idea of the blunt look opt for a beveled cut. This cutting technique is a form of layering but it’s cut in a way that there is little difference between the bottom and top layer. The layer is never normally more than two inches and is great for thick hair that may look slightly ‘blocky’. This cutting technique rounds off edges creating a look to shape the face.
