On September 2, Bad Moms star Amanda Seyfried made an Instagram post unveiling a brand-new choppy bob cut. Suitable for every hair type and event, the short face-framing amount can transform any appearance. This year, create this style with shaggy, textured layers or choppy side bangs to attract attention! It is sure to turn heads and bring plenty of admirers!
Though choppy layers were popular in the ’90s, sleek and straight blunt cuts have recently returned. Celebrities like Kristen Dunst, Gabrielle Union, and Lori Harvey have all sported this chin-length take on classic crop styles – perfect for those seeking a less dramatic fashion! Ask your stylist for a deep side part with subtle pink highlights for an updated take on a blunt cut for a modern look. This collarbone-grazing bob adds texture and works well with either tousled waves or straight strands. Try a blunt mushroom cut for a stylish, face-framing silhouette that pairs beautifully with silver tones. Additionally, this chin-length style works on longer locks like Keke Palmer’s retro style featuring flipped-out ends.
No matter your hair texture, a textured bob can add just the correct definition to enhance it. At your salon appointment, please discuss with your stylist what look you are going for and bring any inspirational images that can also help them. Add texture and create an adorable choppy style by layering varying lengths of layers into a short bob cut for an eye-catching casual style that suits straight hair perfectly. Try styling a textured fringe bob with a low-medium fade on the back and sides for a class that highlights your cheekbones. This look is ideal for men seeking an alternative style to the standard mohawk or faux hawk fade; finish the look off by applying Regal Gentleman Matte Clay for a stylish touch!
Pixie cuts offer the youthful and sassy style females over 50 crave and are one of the most age-defying short haircuts for women. A salt-and-pepper pixie will suit both stubbornly straight hair and curlier textures nicely; adding highlights will only heighten its dramatic effects! A pixie cut that hits just below the chin flatters jawlines and shows off high cheekbones, while longer side-swept ones can cover forehead wrinkles. Experiment with texture by layering and texturizing techniques until you find one that complements your style perfectly. If maintenance is an issue, try opting for a shorter version of a fairy with a nape undercut. This style suits a range of hair types and simultaneously offers formal front and modern back styles – ideal for those wanting short locks but still need to decide whether to commit to an all-out pixie cut. Easy to style and looks fantastic when highlighted, this cut also instantly adds volume and depth for those with thin locks.
Buzz cuts offer the easiest and simplest haircutting solution, perfect for those who prefer minimal grooming efforts. Combined with an iconic handlebar mustache and goatee trimming – such as former boy band member Hugh Jackman – the results can make quite an impression. Close crops aren’t just limited to men – female celebrities such as Kristen Stewart and model Adwoa Aboah have taken to sporting their natural beauty by opting for this no-fuss style to reinvent themselves on their terms. Barbering techniques for this low-maintenance look can be highly creative, producing different lines and dimensions with each cut. Drake sports a buzz cut featuring longer hair on top and fades around his ears and temples; singer Zayn Malik went for a mop top that emphasizes his cheekbones; Lena Waithe had cut-outs added for an avant-garde aesthetic, and texture can easily be added via hair gel or wax products.
