When your locks are long to medium, there is really no end to how creative you can get with your hair styles. Opt for a trendy and modern look by choosing a blunt hairstyle. From blunt bangs, to blunt cuts and layers, this daring look is super chic and easy.
Out with a Bang
Medium-long hair is ultra-versatile so there's a lot of room to be creative. Try out some blunt bangs — they make a bold statement while projecting femininity. To achieve the look, the bangs should be not just blunt but also heavy, meaning thick. Cut them straight across your face and right above your brows. Here, medium-long hair is great because you can be even blunter by leaving out your bangs and slicking your hair completely back — quite a style statement.
Take advantage of your length and layer up. Blunt, face-framing layers can look killer on medium-long hair, especially because this hairstyle can create gorgeous volume for your length. Here, skip the bangs and start the layers around your chin. Part your hair down the middle or even off to the side. For a modern look, straighten your hair, or you can go softer and use a round brush to tuck your ends in — again, the possibilities are simply stunning.
Keep the blunt hairstyle simple by cutting your hair straight across. Celebs such as Naomi Watts have rocked the medium blunt 'do and she's looked fabulous. For a look like this, choose a length near your shoulders and make sure the scissors go straight across your straight hair so everything is one length. If you opt for bangs, keep them soft and light. You don't want to go on blunt-hair overkill.
Although choosing a blunt hairstyle is a bold and daring move, keep in mind it is a style choice that can come with some limitations. For example, because blunt hair is super straight, unless you opt for layers, it can be difficult to shape your tresses into anything but blunt. You may get stuck sporting the straight blunt look for a while. Also, when choosing heavy blunt bangs, be confident in your choice because if you are unhappy with the outcome, blunt heavy bangs can be hard to mold into anything else.
