A loose, modern approach to the classic bob
Bad Bob Includes:
This loose, modern approach to the classic bob haircut is an updated take on a the ’90s deconstructed vibe in haircutting. The beauty of The Bad Bob is its deliberate imperfection.
Precision cuts aren’t always what clients are after—sometimes they want a more relaxed style. In Bad Bob, Gerard Scarpaci breaks down how to create a more informal, “smudgy” and textured bob haircut using the razor.
This simple, salon-friendly approach to creating a bob haircut using a razor doesn’t create solid or deliberate lines. Overall the look has a one-length feel, but through subtle undercutting and weight removal the hair becomes very lean, light and easy to style.
