Let’s Be Blunt: It’s Time to Lose Those Layers!

This season, the sharp-edged style of a uniform cut is turning heads. Andâ•Œto put it bluntlyâ•Œtapered layers are so 2016. Here, we count the ways this simple, no-fuss chop looks ultra-fresh for the new year.  

It’s the Haircut that Works on Everyone

The strong lines of this style work with pretty much any hair texture. Dense-hair types might benefit from a bit of softening with scissors at the ends to prevent the dreaded mushroom effect, while finer hair will appear fuller with thickness cut into the ends.

 

It Won’t Hold You Back from Trying Trends

Braids, messy twists, straight, wavy, bangs: a blunt cut is the one-size-fits-all that does it all!

You Don’t Have to Part with Your Part

This cut works well with a side part, a middle part, or no part at all. The one constant? Hair serum, which keeps hair looking shiny.

 

It’s Like CPR for Damaged Hair

A blunt cut returns fried hair to looking healthier without being tied down to a short style. Say so long to stringy ends, and hello to healthy-looking locks!

This Look Is so Square, It’s Cool

In spite of its conservative simplicity, this style makes a powerful statement (think Uma Thurman’s neat coif in Pulp Fiction or Gwyneth Paltrow’s girlish bob in The Royal Tenenbaums).
