HOW TO FIND THE BEST BLUNT BOB HAIRCUT FOR YOUR HAIR
Before we get into all of the best blunt bob hairstyles, it’s essential to know how to find the best haircut for your hair. When it comes to ultra-straight across blunt bob haircuts, it’s a good idea to do your research to find a stylist who can really nail this look. Blunt bob cuts are typically best created with a steady hand and good old-fashioned haircutting scissors. Make sure to bring inspiration photos with you so that your stylist knows exactly what you want.
Next up? Your texture and hair type! Do you have thin hair or thick hair? How about fine hair, medium hair, or coarse hair? Depending on your answers to these questions, you’ll want to ask your stylist for a specific type of blunt bob haircut. Your stylist will be able to help you determine exactly which blunt bob hairstyle will work best with your hair.
Blunt bob haircuts are typically recommended for people with fine to medium hair. Since these hair types can usually benefit from a bit of a volume boost, a blunt bob that makes hair look fuller is a great haircut option. Don’t worry, though; you can still get in on the look if you have thick hair. To avoid a poofy, unflattering result, your stylist will need to go in after your straight-across snip to thin your ends for a cleaner, less dense undercut. So, what have we learned? Blunt bob haircuts are for everyone! Speaking of which…
