What makes a blunt cut more sleek and stylish? Pairing it with blunt bangs! Bangs are so in trend right now and work for every hair type. They frame your face and give the impression of fuller and voluminous hair, something girls with thin hair can benefit from. However, these eye-grazing blunt bangs are high maintenance, and you will need to visit the salon more often to maintain the style.
7. Short, blunt and coloured

Take your short, blunt haircut a notch higher by adding a pop of colour to the ends. Pick a pastel pink or a bright blue, there’s no dearth of options! Experiment with the length, texture and colour to create something unique, fun and peppy. To style your coloured blunt bob, avoid washing your hair too often as this will fade the hair colour faster. Instead, spray some dry shampoo to refresh your hair as well as add volume and texture.

If you have medium length hair and wish to maintain the length, you don’t have to chop it short. Ask your stylist for a medium length blunt cut or bookmark this picture to recreate the same look on yourself. Medium length blunt cuts can be styled in so many different ways, you can wear it straight and sleek, add a little texture or even go for curls. The options are endless!
10. Blunt bob with highlights
Face framing highlights are one of the hottest hair trends right now, if you are going for a major hair transformation, adding some highlights to your look will only take it a notch higher. Choose a shade close to your natural hair colour or something totally wacky like bright orange or fluorescent pink. However, bright colours look good on lobs and bobs, and we wouldn’t recommend it on medium or long hair as it will require a lot of maintenance and frequent touch-ups.
