A bob can be styled in many ways, including the above look which features straight hair with lots of short layers. Not only does it take any bulkiness out of your hair, it adds flattering, built-in volume at the crown.

A bob that comes down to the ears is super low maintenance and the blunt cut is unexpected. A bold red and a center part help make this style edgy.

12. Long Blunt Bob

One of the things that go well with a blunt cut bob are bangs that are also bluntly cut. This fringe meets the eyebrows and gives the frame a round face.

17. Blunt Cut + Weave Bob

A platinum weave bob stands out the best with a dramatic blunt cut. Curtain bangs that can be arranged across the forehead are a great fringe option for women who don’t always want a bang that hangs across the face.

18. Blunt Bob with Layers

Adding layers to a blunt bob is the best way to give it movement and volume, especially if your hair is thin or fine. For thick hair, it will lighten the weight and take out bulk.

19. Redish

A beautiful rich burgundy is anything but boring for a blunt bob. Layer hair closest to the face for framing and detail.

20. Blonde Blunt Bob

Give Marilyn vibes with platinum soft waves added to a blunt bob. And instead of parting hair directly down the center, a diagonal part is more artsy.

21. Blunt Bob for Black Hair

For the woman who prefers a minimalist hairstyle, have your stylist cut your naturally straight hair into a blunt bob and part in the center.

For super curly hair, chopping it off to jawline-length and giving it a blunt cut will emphasize its thickness and its texture. Some shaggy bangs and a platinum or blonde color is all you need to feel summer-ready.

25. Blunt Bob for Fine Hair

On fine hair, blunt bobs are an edgy choice for a hairstyle. When cutting bangs, instead of stopping the cut right where the eyebrows end at the temples, keep cutting to where your ear is for a modern take. For those who don’t mind going extreme, add an undercut where the bangs start.

26. Thick Blunt Bob

Thick hair can oftentimes feel unruly or overwhelming to style, but the blunt bob should be your first choice for a short haircut. Cut it to collarbone level and part the hair in the middle for a fresh update.

27. Blunt Bob with Side Bangs
