Blunt cuts have been popular ever since Vidal Sassoon exploded into fame with this haircut in the 1960’s. After decades of women wearing prim ponytails and curls during the 1950’s, suddenly the look of the hour was edgy, angular, and unique. The blunt cut still has the power to make us look up and notice. That is why it is the perfect cut for the woman who wants her hair to make a statement. Here are the best blunt cuts for every length.
On short hair, a blunt cut can be angled or straight. An angled blunt cut on short hair always looks very modern. When you want a change from your smooth hairstyle, add texturizing spray and tousle it up to create a “femme fatale with attitude” look.
Medium length hair is a term often used for hair that is chin length to shoulder length. Here the blunt cut can have a lot of variation. A look that is always stylish is the blunt cut that is shorter in the back and angles downward towards the chin. A few minutes with a curling iron can provide a finished, smooth look, or create wild curls.
Long hair is also ideal for the blunt cut treatment. The right way to make blunt cut long hair look like a style and not just a hair trim is to pair it with very thick, blunt cut bangs. The hair can be smooth and sleek or textured with waves. This look is reminiscent of early Cher.
