A blunt bob haircut with bangs is a timeless style that will always be on-trend. If you're thinking of getting one cut in yourself, it's important to know what you're taking on in terms of styling and maintenance.

First things first, it's worth bearing in mind that cuts which are generally supposed to be straight and sleek will be easiest to look after with naturally straight(ish) hair. This means that naturally curly or wavy hair will require more styling time and also need a few days off to keep it looking and feeling healthy.

In a similar vein, anyone with a lot of cowlicks who doesn't want to make their morning routine any longer might want to reconsider. See micro-bangs for more details.

Go sleek

Achieving a sleek, smooth texture is something to work on from the moment you step out of the shower. Apply some Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream and blow-dry using a round brush.

Once the hair is dry, brush it all through with a bristle brush.

To get an ultra-straight look, apply SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray all over and flat iron your hair. Then, once you're happy with how straight the hair is, give your style a mist of SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum for a silky finish, sans flyaways.

Talk to your stylist

When you get a haircut like this, it's important to get all the styling advice you possibly can before you leave the salon. Your stylist will be able to tell you what kind of styling techniques will work best for your hair and exactly what you need to do in order to keep your new cut looking just the way it did post-cut.

You should also treat your hair to a mask at least once a week to replenish moisture lost through styling.
