Known for their great style and appealing straightness, blunt haircuts have become rather popular as of late. And according to many different sources online, these cuts are incredibly easy to pull off. So, to give our readers some neat blunt cut ideas while also showcasing some of the best styles, we’ve created the list below!
Although you may not recognize the name, blunt haircuts are one of the most common styles around today. Made famous by well known stylist Vidal Sassoon, these cuts feature very straight lines and are great for those wanting a well shaped look for their face. In addition to being worn and sported by many models and fashion experts, blunt haircuts can be seen on many well known celebrities, such as Rose Byrne and Mila Kunis.
One of the most important things to remember when it comes to blunt hairstyles, is that they must only be done by a professional. Though they are easy to maintain, attempting to cut a perfectly straight line with scissors on your own can be dangerously risky. Not only could you end up with a crooked line, but (if revised enough) you could end up cutting off your bangs all together – something that no one wants to happen.
As you will soon realize (after looking through the pictures below), the blunt hairstyle can be worn either straightened or messy. In fact, some of the most unique blunt looks come from those who purposely sported a very neatly cut, yet very messy head of hair. Proving that, whether you have time to use a flat-iron or not, your blunt cut can still look great.
So, if you’re looking for a more shapely face and don’t mind a straight hairline or bangs, then you may want to check out some of the images below. Not only will they give you some great ideas for a potential blunt cut of your own, but they will show you just how appealing this style tends to be!
1. A Short Blunt Bob For Blondes
Not only does this one look great for all occasions, but due to the shortness in length, it’s also very easy to maintain. As mentioned above, the blunt hairstyle can be worn either straightened or messy, and this one seems to be a little of both!
2. A Chin Length Chic Gray Blunt Haircut
Though it looks like a really light shade of blonde, this cut is actually gray. And due to the very neatly cut hair line, letting it fall freely is certainly not an issue. Who knew that having gray hair could look so good, and that having short hair could be so beneficial!
3. Another Great Blunt Cut For Blondes
A great look for blondes, and a nice choice for those who enjoy having their hair slightly messy. As you can see when looking at the bottom of the haircut, the perfectly straight line indicates that this style is certainly a blunt cut.
4. A Shoulder Length Blunt Cut For Brunettes
Unlike a few of the preceding images, this cut is shoulder length, straightened, and great for brunettes. Fortunately, whether you’re used to having your hair short or not, this one is also very easy to get used to.
5. A Super Short Blunt Cut For Brunettes
A very natural looking blunt cut. This style is a great choice for those who enjoy having their hair a lot shorter, as well as for those with little time to spend getting ready!
6. A Longer Blunt Cut
Though this cut is a little longer than the images above, it is still technically considered a blunt haircut due to the straight across scissor cut at the bottom. Though they are not featured in this picture, the cut below looks great with blunt-cut bangs as well!
7. Another Great Shoulder Length Blunt Cut
This one featuring some neat straight across bangs to round out the style. If you’re someone wanting to really sharpen the features of your face and are overdue for a haircut, be sure to give this one some consideration!
8. A Brown Straight Blunt Bob Haircut
Another great style, and perhaps the perfect choice for those who like to straighten their hair every day. As you can see, though the natural flowing look is great, sometimes taking the extra time to flat iron your hair really pays off!
9. A Short And Bouncy Blunt Haircut
Though this one might appear difficult to style, it is (believe it or not) actually very easy to maintain. In fact, there are even tutorials online explaining exactly how to do it. All you need is some hair spray, some curling irons, and about twenty to thirty minutes of free time!
10. A Long Balayage Bob Cut, With Neat Highlights And A Blunt Bottom
This unique blunt cut is extremely trendy, and due to the overall shortness in length, it is also easy to pull off. As you may have guessed, all you really need is a straightening iron, and some red hair dye (if you want to add some of the coloring in the back). Fortunately, this style looks great on both blondes and brunettes, as well as redheads!
