Specifically designed for the chic woman over 30, this blunt bob features a center parting that brings a sense of symmetry and balance to your look. The style is ideal for those who appreciate minimalism yet seek a stylish edge. With its straight, sleek locks, this haircut exudes a mature and sophisticated vibe.
This style shines—literally and metaphorically. Perfect for women who love a textured look, the wavy blunt bob features a side parting and bouncy waves that add fullness and flair to a shorter cut. This is a more voluminous take on the traditional blunt bob and has been embraced by celebrities like Taylor Swift, who was spotted showcasing a similar super wavy cut at an event.
9. Tucked behind your ears

10. Clean Lines
If precision is what you’re after, this chin-length blunt bob is the epitome of chic. Featuring impeccably clean lines, it demands and showcases disciplined cutting technique. When layers are not there to distract, every cut has to be made with exactness to ensure that the style looks perfect from every angle.
11. Wispy Bangs
For a relaxed yet chic look, consider adding wispy bangs to a tousled, blunt bob. This style offers an “undone” finish, giving you that perfect “I woke up like this” vibe. The wispy bangs soften the blunt cut, making it more versatile for both casual and formal events.

The layered blunt bob offers a touchable texture that you and everyone else won’t be able to resist running fingers through.

It’s a great idea for reflecting light, without expensive highlights, whilst keeping the depth of tone that complements your natural skin-tone. Center parts are only for oval faces, so for a round, heart face or prominent nose, wear a side-parting!
24. Blunt bob with subtle highlights for a natural finish

26. High-fashion avant-garde haircut in clear copper shade
Here’s a fabulous edgy bob with extreme asymmetry. The back is a boy-cut, creating an attractive curve tapering in to a blunt-line.

28. Espresso smooth black bob for round face

30. Minimalist medium straight bob for thin/fine hair
This version of the center part, straight bob is a few inches shorter than the above haircut for thick hair. Keeping fine hair reasonably short helps to create a thicker appearance. This style uses strictly blunt-cut ends to create density and the bright blonde ombre also makes hair seem more abundant. Suits oval faces.
31. Trendy choppy bob with sea-green & plum balayage
Here’s a fabulous, contemporary look with a choppy edge and sharp angles. Glossy hair is given added fashion flair from the deep-green and plum highlights that soften black hair color. At chin-length, with a side parting this is a great hairstyle for round, oval, heart and long faces.
32. Relaxed tucked-back styling adds asymmetry to bob haircuts
Cutting fairly long hair in an edgy asymmetrical style is too permanent for some, but you can get the benefits of asymmetry just by pushing hair back on one side. This lovely brunette color has choppy textured tips and fabulous beige-blonde balayage for a trendy, casual look and with a side parting will suit round, oval and heart faces.
33. Subtle waves create texture on blunt-cut bob with bangs
This model has thick hair, which has been blunt cut to create slightly flicked-up tips, instead of the usual thinned-down ends that curve inwards. All waves are great for adding natural movement and texture to hair and this excellent bob suits oval, round and heart faces!
34. Stunning white-blonde angled bob with edgy purple accents
This trendy steeply angled bob has a fantastic white-blonde color design that includes edgy, purple balayage above the forehead! It’s a great haircut for medium or thick hair, with strong asymmetry and highly textured, sharp tips for extra edge. You can adjust the parting to the side to suit your individual face shape.
35. Jaunty short blonde bob with flipped-out texture
What could be cuter for summer than this jaunty blonde bob with textured tips! The all-over blonde color has white- and beige-blonde lowlights too, creating extra light reflection, texture and movement.

36. Elegant smooth blunt-cut bob in beige-blonde
Here’s an elegant blunt bob, with a straight, chopped line accentuating the edgy style.

The fabulous warm beige blonde, with subtle highlights, complements the model’s warm skin-tone and accentuates her contrasting eye-brows, eyes and lips!
37. Classic short curved bob with bangs on brunette
This no-nonsense chin-length bob with bangs is a very classy style for medium and thick hair.
