Short blunt haircuts play with your locks to give a highly structured and asymmetrical finish. Here are 5 ways with this look to fully appreciate this hairstyle in all of its forms.
The boyish style
Opt for the pixie crop which is extremely short on the sides with some length left on top for a casual hairstyle. Inspired by a very popular men’s haircut, this version gives you a look that can be as androgynous as you want. As for styling, simply sweep your locks towards the back using a small amount of gel with a low level of hold. This will hold in any movement whilst keeping your hair soft and swingy.
The short bob
To gently make the transition to a short blunt cut, opt for this feminine version with a few slightly longer layered strands swept to one side. The advantages of this look? It is ultra-smooth yet pumped-up at the roots thanks to light blow-dry styling. The result: the haircut is subtly asymmetrical with a pretty finish.
Playing with contrasts
Here, the varying shades of the colouring technique used showcase and enhance this asymmetrical haircut. A few golden blond accents add depth and luminosity. The contrast between light thinned-out strands against a dark base accentuates the blunt nature of this short haircut. This is an unusual and highly feminine look which will delight the most daring amongst us.
Go in for Jean Louis David’s new blunt look with this short layered haircut, thinned out meticulously at the nape of the neck. This is a perfect style for emphasising the feminine side of short hair. Structured by a large front section creating a brazenly asymmetrical look, the Graphic Eighties haircut is enhanced by subtle highlights thanks to the Gloss treatment, a subtle tone-on-tone colouring technique which boosts your hair’s shine and catches the light at the tips.
The slicked-back look
To give a new look to your short haircut simply by quickly going over it with a comb, mark out a side parting before adding texture to your locks with styling gel. Gently smooth down your hair with the comb to create a slicked-back look, whilst still keeping a little of your hair’s volume. This will instantly change how your blunt haircut looks, and it will take on a sophisticated couture feel. Then, simply chop and change the styling products you use to suit the occasion and try out endless styles, from the wet look to matt effects.
