A blunt bob with layers is definitely a hairstyle "Hall of Famer." This iconic look has been sported by almost every credibly stylish celebrity, from Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour to Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow. The list is truly endless, and so are the style and edginess this hairstyle evokes. A bluntly cut bob with layers is a good way to totally transform your look and create a more grown-up image. The best thing about a blunt bob with layers is the simple fact that there are so many ways to work it.
Like Drew Barrymore's bob, you can achieve a rock-and-roll look that is effortless and easy with a bluntly cut shag-styled bob. The layers are choppy and the ends are very blunt. Style this particular look with gels and holding sprays, thus keeping the shape and shag effect. This is a very edgy look ideal for the rock chick within you. It is also low maintenance and uber youthful.
The tousled bob does channel some rock chick, but is far more bohemian chic. The light loose waves and intense layers create a very romantic carefree look. Loosened spiral curls create a relaxed and adaptable shape while allowing the bob to be free in it's movement. This is naturally gorgeous and fashion forward.
Sleek and Sharp
A blunt layered bob does not have to be messy. If you want a look that is smart, professional and super sexy, you should definitely try a sleek sharp bob. This style possesses subtle but firm layers and very defined ends. It is usually curled under and variations can be spotted on Anna Wintour, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Roberts. You can work a straight, full-faced fringe to add some extra edge. If you want something a little smoother, you could go for a chic side fringe instead.
A graduated bob is the ultimate in choppy blunt layered styles. The graduated bob provides an edgy, fashion-forward look with femininity and luxury, too. Go for long, defined layers in the front and neck-brushing trimmed layers in the back. Try a far side and curl layers under for a lush, curvy shape.
