ICYMI: Blunt haircuts are back — and better than ever. While the traditional blunt cut refers to a style with one uniform length, today's interpretation is, at times, more open-ended. For instance, modern variations may feature subtle layers with blunt ends. Although this breaks from the cut's strict no-layers rule, it still maintains its clean, polished aesthetic. So no matter your hair length, texture, or even face shape, you're bound to find a blunt cut that works for you. To inspire your next salon appointment, we're sharing our roundup of 25 blunt hairstyles as modeled by our favorite A-listers.

From textured crops to stick-straight lobs, keep scrolling for the best celeb-inspired blunt cuts.
