Trending: The blunt haircut that everyone can pull off

Bella Hadid has done the deed, so have Selena Gomez and Olivia Wilde. The blunt cut has quickly become a firm favourite of 2017. With clean lines and dramatic angles, the chin-length chop is both edgy and sophisticated as it accentuates the jawline and cheekbones.


The blunt cut is versatile and universally flattering on everyone whether you go sleek and straight or flirty and wavy. Yes, that’s right, you don’t have to restrict yourself to the straightened look for this hairstyle to work. You can get a modernised version with curled hair and have the ends cut really blunt. It is the update we can’t get enough of. 


For girls with round face shape, we know your concern, opt for a slightly layered or texturised cut and longer bob so it creates movement and elongate the face. While for those with long faces, get a chin-length layered cut to add width and texture. One edgy and windswept hairstyle coming up! 


Need more convincing to take the plunge? We went celebrity stalking spotting. Check out these celebs who have gone for the sharp chop – who do you think wore it best?
