Considering that your hair is easy to experiment with (the good old breakup makeover has happened to us all), it make sense that you might be itching to switch things up this fall. Even if you just want a subtle change, there’s an enduringly cool option that’s been spotted on the runway and red carpet, and we can’t get enough: It’s the blunt cut.

Like its name promises, this cut also gets straight to the point. Abbey Lee Kershaw’s legendary blunt bob (pictured above, bottom right) still has us talking and will always be at the top of our hair inspo board.

If you’re looking for something less severe, take cues from the models above that were spotted at shows such as Rodarte and Burberry rocking a mix of blunt bangs and bobs. Soon after, Jaimie Alexander and Emma Stone tried the trend with some similar looks. Plus, we’ll never get over Jourdan Dunn’s chop—whether she adds extensions to her hair or not, we all know what’s under there, and it’s a blunt wavy bob that’s just so perfect it’s not even fair.

So we’re going to be blunt with you: If you need an instant upgrade for fall, do this.
