THE BLUNT BOB (RIHANNA + JAIME KING + RITA ORA)
Let’s talk cuts! The bob has been a popular haircut since flappers in the 1920’s started sporting it. The 20’s bob was much shorter than the modern day cut we see everyone wearing today. In the 1920’s it was often worn often worn with a side-parting, curled or waved, and with the hair at the nape of the neck Fast forward to the 60’s where Vidal Sassoon simplified the cut and it became popular again and has been ever since. Editor- in- chief of Vogue Anna Wintour has had a bob since 1988 and in 1994 Uma Thurman’s character Mia Wallace made it an iconic cut in the cult classic Pulp Fiction. Since then the bob has continued to evolve while staying present in trends throughout the years.
In 2017 it’s all about being blunt…with your hair of course! The newest and most on trend way to wear a bob current day is cut sharp and angular. The cut should be very precise and exact. Curly haired girls, don’t fret, you can pull off the blunt bob too. Check out the photo of Rihanna rocking it below embracing her natural texture.
Combining the satin sleek trend with this one compliments the cut perfectly. With the right cut this style will showcase the precision and sharpness of this style. Check out our “Satin Sleek” blogpost to see how to achieve this look and wear two trends in one hairstyle.
Keep it old school and wear this cut like the flappers did in the 20’s. In this photo above of Rita Ora she has her bob cut a little higher than chin length and has it parted to the side. This is great for fine or thin hair as it creates the appearance of volume and makes the hair look fuller. This style could be worn with straight or curly hair and would compliment both textures.
