Instagram Inspo: Blunt Cuts

Allow us to be blunt - the blunt cut is the new preferred cut of Instagram's most stylish ladies. Get inspired!

The humble bob has roared back onto our style radar – and on the back of that so too has the rise of the blunt cut. In recent years all the focus has been on layered hairstyles, however a scroll through our Instagram feed illustrates that blunt cuts are now on the rise. Here's how some of social media's most stylish ladies are rocking a blunt bob.

Sharp angles

Poker straight, sharply angled and oh-so blunt – this look is polished perfection. Making the most of the angled lines and symmetry, this cut has a striking impact. Flawless straight lengths are a must for this look, so smooth down any flyaways with a hairspray like .

Easy breezy

With warmer weather right around the corner, this short blunt bob is giving us serious summer vibes. Despite the absence of layers, this blunt bob still has a light and airy quality to it. Just add wayfarer shades and a summer tank and you're ready to hit the beach!

Blunt waves

A blunt cut doesn't mean limiting yourself to straight styling. With the help of an iron and a little twisting technique, some softened waves can easily be added through the mid-lengths and ends. Just remember to keep the top section fairly flat against the head so that your waves don't end up puffing out to the sides.

Blunt lob

The long bob - aka the lob - is the low commitment close cousin of the classic bob. This look is a great way to test the waters without lopping all your lengths off. As with a regular bob, the super sleek styling really accentuates the bluntness of the cut. Try using a smoothing product like to perfect that ultra-sleek finish.
