The blunt cut bob that we might usually associate with Uma Thurman in Kill Bill or Velma Kelly from Chicago looks clean, sleek, and razor-sharp. The look might sound intimidating and difficult to pull off, but with a seasoned stylist to execute it, a blunt cut can actually flatter every hair texture, face shape, and personal style with ease. Whether you opt for asymmetrical and pin-straight or curly and tousled, you can still get all the volume, shape, and texture that we're usually lauding layers for (believe it or not).
Below, find 30 blunt cut bobs that will convince you to make the chop once and for all.
You can always give a blunt bob some extra volume by styling in some textured waves. (This look used a flat iron on low heat and a good texturizing spray.)
Shoulder-length braids with blunt, even ends are reason enough to make the chop. (Get more braid inspo here.)
Add Some Volume
When some subtle graduation (aka shaping of the hair that removes internal bulk and length without adding external layers) makes all the difference. This blunt bob was cut half-wet, half-dry, and the stylist used a texturizing shear to bring some extra drama.
While an asymmetrical bob is certainly on the edgier side, it's a great way to play with length, shape, and volume—while also bringing dimension and attention to your face. Win-win.
Combine straight, blunt ends with a wavier, soft body (we recommend a great hair gel) and side part for a bob that's both modern and retro at the same time.
Your stylist can work some magic (and by that, we mean add volume and shape) into your long bob by incorporating a soft graduation and subtle undercut.
Long Blunt Bob
We always love a long bob moment—and you can take the look up a notch with a blunt chop and some honey highlights.
The best part about cutting your ends is obsessing over how healthy they suddenly are—show 'em off with a straight finish (and an equally soft pastel hair color).
It's never a better time to play with color: Make a bold cut even bolder by pairing it with a punchy shade, like this peachy hue.
Who knew a simple bob could make this much of a statement? Pair a blunt cut with a platinum hue for a cool-as-can-be final result.
Short & Sweet
This might be the shortest bob you can get that isn't a pixie cut—and you'll still have enough length to work with regardless of the occasion.
Side-Swept & Sultry
If your natural texture allows, zero layers will give you the perfect bouncy curls. (Just don't forget your favorite trusty curly-hair products.)
