Thinking about going for a blunt bob or have this fab style already? We know going short can be intimidating, especially when it comes to figuring out how to style the look. Despite losing a few inches, you will not lose the endless amount of ways you can style your blunt bob! We love how dramatically different this look can be and how low maintenance it is. If you need some major inspo ASAP then check out these looks we’ve curated to show you how to style a blunt bob.
1. Mini Space Buns
How cute is this style? We love how quick it is to create to mini space buns and how youthful and fun the finished product looks. Create two half updo ponytails and then twist them around themselves to create the bun. Use bobby pins to secure your mini space buns and let any straggling pieces stay out for some added texture.
2. Pancaked Side Braid
Give yourself textured side braids to switch up your look. Create whatever type of braid you like, we personally love a Dutch braid because it’s easy to pancake. Pull your braid loose to pancake it and give it a carefree and textured feel. As you pull your braid loose, spray with a texture spray to give it hold and body. We have been loving Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray for styles like this one.
3. Half Up Baby Bun
A baby bun on top of your blunt bob is so simple and a great way to switch up your style. All you have to do is create a half updo and then create a small bun. You can do this either by not completing the last rotation of your elastic when making a ponytail or you can wrap your ponytail around itself and secure with another elastic. Step up the style even more by wrapping a small section of hair around the elastic to cover it, secure with bobby pins.
Blunt bobs look absolutely amazing with a soft blowout. Achieve this smooth and shiny finish by using some TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Balm before styling to add heat protectant and hold to your look.
5. Loose Waves
Loose waves are a great style for blunt bobs because they last a few days and the longer they’re lived in the more effortless they look. Keep your style alive by using a dry shampoo every morning to soak up excess oils. Love Beauty and Planet Rosehip & Patchouli Extend Dry Shampoo will give you a fresh finish and a delicious smell.
6. Half Updo
This look is similar to the baby bun style, but instead of focusing your bun on top of your head, it’s created in the back. If you constantly feel like your shorter strands are getting in your face throughout the day and you need a break from trying to tuck it behind your ears, give this style a go!
