Shelly Aguirre, a stylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, explained how and why blunt cuts have taken over Hollywood. “The reason this blunt bob is so popular is simple—it can look great on any hair texture,” says Aguirre. “Depending on the density, this trend is pretty easy to pull off and versatile.” If you’re still not convinced on how easy it is to style a blunt cut, Aguirre also shares the best ways to approach them. (Spoiler alert: Getting your hair chopped is not as scary as it seems.) “It may seem boring to have a one-length bob, but you have plenty of styling options with this classic cut,” she begins. “Wearing it wavy can show off a more fun side, or you can keep it straight for a sexy streamlined look. Add a fringe, side sweep, or full bang, and you’ll be able to embrace an entire new look for this classic style.”
