There’s no denying that straight hair is one of the most versatile hair types.

But there are times when you might feel bored with your straight hair and find yourself craving a new way to wear your straight locks. Enter blunt straight hair, a trendy and fun hairstyle that’s all about its defined, sharp ends. Perfect for the modern gal, the blunt cut is all about owning an edgy and fierce style. Read on to check out our collection of 15 of our favorite blunt hair ideas that will surely inspire you to get in on this trend.

On Our Radar: Blunt Straight Hair

1. Blunt and Asymmetrical Bob

How great is this one-length cut? An edgy/unexpected combo, this is one cool way to elevate that traditional bob with a deep side part and long angular section. Have fun with this look as you rock your dramatic part with ease.

2. ’90s Style Straight Blunt Hair

Part of the reason we love blunt straight hair so much is that it gives us some major nostalgia. Who could forget the perfectly pin straight hair of the ’90s? Just keep in mind, any look that needs regular heat styling absolutely needs a heat protector, like the TRESemmé Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray, that’s applied to your hair before you apply heat via a flat iron or blowdryer.

3. Slicked-Down Center Part

Slicked hair and center parts were two huge trends that we loved checking our during Fashion Week. And this blunt hairstyle is pretty easy to master. Simply comb your hair, creating your center part and apply some Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel to your roots. Comb down the gel to set this style. Done and looking fierce!

4. Blunt and Tapered Bob

Now this is how you wear a blunt bob! Going sans bangs lets you get the ‘oh so chic’ clean lines that can really define thick-looking hair. Wear it with a center part for a fashionable take, or a side part for a softer (more forgiving) look.

5. Chin-Grazing Bob

Or maybe you want a classic blunt look with sweeping bob and bangs. We love this combo with its clean lines and defined bangs that looks awesome on straight hair types.

6. Blunt Cut Silver Hair

The bright gray hair trend isn’t going away anytime soon and we just love this darker gunmetal shade. Just like a longer bob lets you get away with perfectly exact bangs, a collarbone length cut allows for long bangs. Long bangs, even if they are blunt gives a softer look which balances out a longer blunt cut.

7. The Low Ponytail

We couldn’t not include a low ponytail look. They were just too popular this fashion month! With a blunt cut you get this really abrupt end to a straightened ponytail and we’re here for it. It’s a chic look that takes all but two seconds to whip together.

8. Heavy Blunt Bangs and Messy Hair

Blunt hair can be a messy shag, too! You just need to balance it out with not too messy blunt bangs. We like this almost shaggy looking cut with perfectly straight long bangs. To get the texture in your hair spritz in some of the Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Use your fingers to scrunch the product in your hair to create that lived-in texture.

9. Ombre Lob Blunt Cut

Add some softness to your blunt cut with an ombre dye job. It makes your ombre look more cool, and your blunt cut look more delicate. We lean more towards ombre on blunt cuts because it can mirror that sharp end, as opposed to a balayage look. Make sure that you keep your ends in good condition because they’ll be on display with this cut. A weekly date with a hair mask should do the trick for moisturizing your bleached ends.

10. Blunt, Angular Lob

Another way to add some softness to this harsh cut is to try a deep side part and an angled cut. It will make your hair ever so slightly heavier on the one side which keeps this look from getting too sterile. Bonus: deep side parts make for wonderful faux side bangs.

11. Short Center Part

Although the runway almost always showed off center parts with waist grazing long hair, it looks gorgeous on shorter locks, too. This particular cut is not for everyone (rounder faces should try the above, side parted look) but looks gorgeous on oval shaped faces. This cut also lets you highlight your strong facial features like cheekbones or your jawline.

12. Slicked Back Half-Updo

Slicked back hair doesn’t need to be all or nothing. We adore this half-slicked back look. You just need to separate the top half of your hair (ideally with the cleanest lines possible) and slick back just that top section with some gel. Cap it off with a shiny barrette and you’ve got all the chic clean lines we can handle.

13. Deep Side Parted Long Hair

Deep side parts aren’t just for lobs. We’re loving the look with extra long hair too! Just make sure that your hair is cut with your side part in mind. If you don’t, you can get a wonky looking line instead of that blunt look.

14. Totally Slicked Back Look

Want a sneaky way to wear a deep conditioning hair mask all day? Style your hair into a slicked back look. You can even use straight up coconut oil for a deep conditioning hair fix.

15. Extra Long Blunt Bangs

We’ve got a thing for extra long blunt bangs, we admit it. Going for a thin look like this will give your blunt bangs a more romantic, piecey effect. You can amp it up by styling for a piecey look, or get that chic blunt line by opting to straighten your bangs.
