It’s Time to Go Blunt and Minimal This Fall

The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice is in the air, and we’re digging our favorite knitwear out from the back of the closet. It can only mean one thing. Fall is here.

It’s a time when most of us choose to shake up our looks. The beachy waves of summer make way for a more structured look for fall and winter. This season, we’re embracing the blunt cut. It’s a celebrity favorite that adds volume to your hair and is fuss-free for easy styling.

Blunt haircuts are perfect for the ‘biker girl chic’ look. You can still have fun with a blunt cut without the maintenance of looking after longer locks. While most blunt cuts have no layers, we’re changing it up this season.

Minimal layers are an easy way to adapt this fall 2022 hair trend to suit you. This hairstyle captures the ‘perfectly imperfect’ aesthetic that is all over our Instagram feed.

At 212 Salon and Day Spa, we’re declaring fall the official season for the blunt cut. Fall 2022 is changing up this versatile hairstyle with minimal layers for a feminine twist. This subtle update gives the contemporary trend a softer look. We’re jumping into this fall 2022 hair trend and sharing you can recreate it this season.

The Blunt Haircut

Are you thinking of going for a shorter hairstyle? The blunt look is easy to maintain with a structured silhouette that makes you look instantly elegant. It’s been a signature look of some of Hollywood’s leading ladies, including Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightly.

The blunt haircut trend is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a short haircut without layers with even edges.  The razor-sharp edges create the illusion of someone having cut your hair as though it had been in a ponytail.

While the ‘blunt’ aspect of the trend refers to the edges, most blunt haircuts are on the shorter end. You can choose from chin-length to shoulder-grazing to achieve this look with its full effect. You won’t get the same drama with blunt edges on longer hair.

A good in-between of the blunt bob and long locks is a ‘lob’. It’s an easy way to experiment with a shorter length and blunt edges without chopping most of your hair. There’s a blunt haircut out there for everyone, whether you’re committing to the short look or keeping your length.

The styling team at 212 Salon and Day Spa is here to help you find the blunt hairstyle for you. Got the urge to cut your hair? We accept walk-in consultations and appointments!

Will a Blunt Cut Suit Me?

The blunt haircut is popular because it’s hassle-free. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to spend hours styling their hair every week. It’s the low-maintenance hairstyle that’s beloved by supermodels, celebrities, and influencers alike.

What we love about a blunt cut is that it suits almost everyone. You can personalize your haircut by experimenting with the length, layering, and side parting. We’re updating the blunt cut for fall 2022 with minimal layers for a lightweight feel.

You don’t need thick hair to experiment with a blunt cut. You can style a blunt cut to help make thin hair appear thicker and give your hair color a cooler edge.

A blunt cut is an ideal choice if you’re looking to improve the health of your hair. Maybe you’ve damaged it from excessive heat use or permanent hair dye. Going back to a blunt cut can help you give your hair the TLC it needs to grow back stronger and healthier.

A longer chin-grazing blunt cut is perfect for those who want to experiment with coloring. It’s an ideal in-between length for those who want to change up their look but can’t commit to a pixie look.

How to Style Minimal Layers

While a blunt cut is short in length, it gives you endless styling options. Before committing to your blunt cut, you want to consider your facial structure and features. Working with one of our hair stylists is the best way to customize your blunt haircut to suit your features and aesthetic.

The most popular is the sleek straight chin-length cut that adds instant elegance to your look. This blunt cut will accentuate your bone structure and looks best with a middle or deep side parting. Add minimal layers to create definition in your hair, especially if you’re incorporating highlights or a French balayage.

Adding minimal layers to your blunt cut can make it easier to style with extra texture. You can achieve soft waves using a flat iron or a thin curling wand to add a laidback feel to your blunt cut. Hailey Bieber perfected this look with minimal layers and wave spray to add texture and volume.

If you feel like being a little dramatic with your look, speak to your stylist about a slightly asymmetrical cut. You can still recreate the blunt edges but with different lengths. Choose one side of your hair to chop a few inches higher for a head-turning look.

How to Care for a Blunt Haircut

A blunt cut is relatively carefree and perfect for those who want to go natural with their hair. The key to maintaining a blunt haircut is regular appointments to maintain the length and nourishing products to strengthen your locks.

You’ll typically want to book regular appointments on a 6 to 8-week basis to maintain the sharpness of your cut. Invest in a nourishing conditioner to maintain your hair’s natural shine and leave it soft to the touch.

Are you thinking of pulling the trigger on a blunt cut? Maybe you’re not sure about which fall hairstyle is right for you. We accept walk-in appointments and consultations with our stylist team on hand with expert advice.
