Having a hairdresser for a mum has meant that I’ve done just about everything you can think of to my hair. I’ve been platinum blonde, mahogany brown and everything in-between. I’ve framed my face with feathering and had thick fringes cut in. I’ve had hair down to my waist and chopped to my chin. It’s fair to say I was pretty earless with my tresses. That is until I got older.
I don’t know why, but for some reason, I’ve defaulted to long length hair in a creamy hue with lived-in roots. Now, though, after witnessing some impressive hair transformations on Instagram of late, I’m finally going to give my ‘do a refresh. And the look I’m toying with is a blunt bob.
The blunt bob has undergone a bit of a resurgence in 2019. A far cry from the dreaded bowl cut, instead, influencers and A-listers alike are opting for jaw-skimming hairstyles that feel modern, refreshing, grown-up, and just a little bit sexy. My rationale? It’s only hair, so I suggest going as sharp as possible, much like Emma Hill or Lily James. However, should it feel too severe, you can always ask your stylist to take some of the weight out of the ends of your hair, which will subtly soften the appearance of your ‘do while maintaining its sleek silhouette. Case in point? Brittany Xavier or Jourdan Dunn.
