- Blunt hairstyles tends to look pretty severe, if it is not styled right. One of the best ways to keep this hairstyle from looking too flat and one dimensional is to add hair highlights. If you have dark hair, add caramel or cinnamon highlights. For blond hair, ombre highlights work very well.
- Most women with blunt hairstyle prefer to style their hair with a middle part. But a middle part can make your hair look flat at the front and crown. To tackle this problem, you should opt for a side part instead. A side parting softens the edginess of a blunt haircut and it gives a youthful and stylish look.
- Hair that has been blow dried straight or flat ironed looks better with a blunt hairstyle. To combat any hint of frizziness, it is best to apply a silicone-based gloss or serum before blow drying your hair.
- If you have to attend an event or a party, then one of the best ways to style your blunt hairstyle is by creating soft wavy curls at the sides. Use a long barreled curling iron haphazardly over random sections of hair. Soft waves look incredibly romantic and it also softens the contours of the face.
