It's convenient that one of the trendiest haircuts of 2019 is also one of the most classic looks of all time. We're talking about the blunt bob, a short hair mainstay that's always there when you need it. And right now, Hollywood is screaming its name.

Straight forward and edgy, the blunt-cut bob has minimal layering and falls somewhere around the chin. While it can be styled a variety of different ways, you've probably been noticing it pop into your Instagram feed recently accompanied by bangs, a sleek, flat-ironed finish, an eye-catching center part, or with an asymmetrical shape.

And if you're worried about pulling off the blunt bob, don't fret. As Erickson Arrunategui, a stylist and educator at Bumble and bumble's Meatpacking Salon in New York City, once told InStyle.com, the popular cut works for every face shape.
