What Is The Jellyfish Haircut?

Looking back over the pictures you can see that the jellyfish haircut combines a small section of blunt bob-length layers in the front by the ears that turns into a longer all-one length cut. Sometimes, there are even shorter bangs added above the eyes for even more of a bi-level look. This is the traditional “hime” haircut.

You can take it a step further and cut the blunt bob length all around. Then it will really resemble the look of the rounded top of a jellyfish and longer tentacles underneath, hence the name.

It also kind of looks like a blunt bob, bowl cut, and mullet combined!

Where Did The Jellyfish Haircut Come From?

The hime/princess haircut originated in Japan, and then gave way to the jellyfish haircut, which can be considered a recent, high fashion/avant-grade look.
