Bad Bob

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.

You Will Learn:

  • How to create a soft, textured bob using the razor
  • Simple paneled sectioning pattern
  • How to use the razor to create a chunky effect
  • When and where in the cut to use slicing to create separation and direction
  • Why working from the inside out creates a looser feel to a shape
  • Tips and tricks to create softness and texture
