Blunt bobs are the style everyone will be asking their hairdresser for this year
Chic and timeless

L’Oreal Professionnel’s 2020 Colour Trophy Awards officially wrapped last night, and the verdict?
It’s all about the blunt bob this year.
Think choppy edges with soft touches of texture, sleek ‘70s blow-outs, and unexpected pops of colour to freshen up the classic style. P.S. We recommend personalising with a face-flattering fringe for best results.
Here are eight freshly blunted bobs to get you inspired before your next trip to the salon:
Look, we know, Irina Shayk could look good in a Barney costume but this chin-grazing style is surprisingly easy to pull off. Pair with a fringe that lets your facial features do the talking (Hello cheekbones! We see you brows!), enliven lengths with a texture spray and you really can’t go wrong with this wash'n go style.

Thick hair and short styles can seem like a scary pairing but select a style like this one here and you’ll find that it creates loose texture and body, adding just the right kind of volume. Run a hair serum or oil through ends for definition and shine.

The classic one-length bob is a classic for a reason. Easy to accessorise on days when you just *can’t deal* or take the time to blow it out, you’re going to look like a woman of Wall Street 24/7 and we’re living for every second of it.

The sweet nostalgia of a ‘70s blowout lends itself to this one-length lob. Paired with soft curtain bangs, this delicately feminine style is flattering on a multitude of faces.
