N ot a m e m b e r ? J o i n at a s so c iate d h a i rp rofe s sio n a ls .c o m 15 the trend It's Hip to Be Square The blunt square bob is one of 2021's hippest trends by Britt DuBose As clients emerge from quarantine this spring, freshly vaccinated and hopeful about a future of attending concerts and parties once again, they may be ready to shed a little length along with their winter clothes. What better way to do that than with a timeless, classic bob? By keeping the shape blunt and the same length all the way around, your clients will be rocking a strikingly bold style all summer long. WHY WE LOVE IT A blunt bob is easy to wear and style, which makes it perfect for clients who don't like to spend a lot of time and effort styling. It can be worn sleek with a center or side part (the debate rages on), or softer with a few loose waves that work well on second- day hair. Whether clients opt for short and blunt or a longer curtain bang, adding a fringe can dramatically change the look. WHO IT'S BEST FOR Depending on the length, a blunt bob can really work on anyone. Shorter cuts that graze the cheekbones or jawline are perfect for oval, square, and heart-shaped faces. A bob that hits just above the shoulders is flattering on all face shapes and hair types. Clients with thin and fine hair will love the thicker look they get with this classic blunt cut. GET INSPIRED You don't have to search the archives to find inspiration for this classic. Look to @chrisjones_hair for gorgeous shoulder-length bobs both sleek and wavy; @brentdanielbasore likes to add lots of texture to his blunt cuts; and for any length and style of bob, check out @hairbyallybarone for endless inspiration. @brentdanielbasore @hairbyallybarone @chrisjones_hair
