Let's Be Blunt

Let's Be Blunt

Last year's lob is getting a new look this year with the chin length blunt bob proving to be the cut to have for 2017. Cara Delevingne debuted her jaw dropping platinum bob at Chanel's AW17 show and added her own twist to the look from slicked back, a sleek retro curl and adding texture with a side braid.

This trend is straight out of the 90's and is a great minimal style to have without being boring. With its simple clean-line graphic shape, this one length bob is mostly going to be seen ending at the chin. However longer length with some added texture cut into the hair is also another take on this trend and if you're feeling daring add a blunt bang cut to span almost the entire forehead. It is important to consult with your skill certified designer to make sure you get the correct shape and length for your hair texture and face shape.

To style your blunt bob at home find a heat activated styling cream that will style your hair smooth when heat activated while also preventing your hair from heat damage. For finer hair it's important to select an additional styling product that will give hair added texture without too much volume, since volume isn't a factor in this look. Mix the two products into the palm of your hand and apply to damp hair before using a round brush or paddle brush to dry smooth.

If wearing your blunt cut with loose waves, add a styling treatment that will spring up spirals, curls and waves. Coax natural waves with a product that boosts and maintains the hairs curls structure to create the textured choppy bob. With no wrong way to wear your brand new bob find the style and accessories that will be sure to make a blunt statement for summer.
