By definition, a blunt cut has the absence of layers. This type of haircut is snipped straight across, which creates a razor-sharp edge. This single-length finish then produces a sleek look for short hairstyles—this is the major reason blunt bobs are called "glass hair." Longer tresses, on the other hand, are considered classic and a great canvas for creating curls and braids—you can experiment with different hairstyles with this length! Read on to know more about this 'do and see proof that *need* to try this cut soon.
How do hairstylists create a one-length blunt cut?
Hairstylists take years of practice and must have insane haircutting skills to perfect sharp edges. Aside from shears, they also use a clipper to get that precise cut. In case you're curious, here's a short video that demonstrates the cutting technique.
How do you style a blunt cut?
The thing with short blunt cuts is that the ends often flip outwards because they naturally follow the slopes of the neck and shoulders when air-dried. To make everything easier for you, always use a conditioner whenever you wash your hair. Then, massage a serum, oil, or leave-in conditioner on the ends to avoid flyaways.
Take your styling game up a notch by using a straightener to emphasize the blunt cut. If you've got wavy tresses, you can spritz texturizing spray or apply gel on damp strands to emphasize your twirls and enhance your hair's shape.
What blunt cuts can I try for my face shape?
When you've got a strong jawline or a round face shape, some stylists would advise against getting a blunt cut. But seeing the likes of Lucy Hale and Rhian Ramos sport this 'do, we think that this rule is meant to be broken. To be on the safe side, you can ask for a modification: An asymmetric cut that has longer front ends to enhance your jawline. The blunt cut looks best on oval, oblong, and heart face shapes.
Ahead, the best blunt cuts you can try for a sharp, polished look.
