From the right hair care routine to the perfect hair styling products, here's everything you need to know about how to style a blunt bob.
HOW TO STYLE A BLUNT BOB
When it comes to styling a blunt bob haircut, how you wear your new hair should be based on your hair’s texture. That’s right, texture plays a bigger role in achieving your ideal style than you might think—and we’re here to break it down for you.
If you have curly hair…
To our ladies with lots of curls, you’ll want to tame your tresses in order to rock a blunt bob. Keep your hair hydrated to prevent your curls from clumping together and giving the illusion of an extra short 'do. Since this is already a short hairstyle, we're guessing you'll be interested in maintaining the little length you do have.

To style a curly, blunt bob…use a hair cream to manage your curls. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Curl Taming Cream to damp hair, scrunch, and then blow-dry to give you perfect curls from roots to ends.
If you have straight hair…
