Sleek and Glossy Blunt Wedge
A wedged bob can have two styles; either graduated and smooth from the shorter layers to the longer layers, or something a little more blunt like this lady has gone for. Either style is gorgeous – but we are certainly partial to this sweeping brown bob! With a blunt transition from the longer top layer to the shorter underneath layer, the finished look is very special indeed.
A vintage wedge style is the easiest way to inject some volume into your hair – ensuring the contrasting layers add bounce and body to your hairstyle without you even having to touch it!
