Despite the freezing temperatures in some parts of the country, more and more women are chopping off their long locks. From chin-grazing bobs, to feathery lobs and structured mobs, short styles have marked their territory in the hair world—and we see no end to the trend in sight.
Get the look:
- Section the hair based on your client's part.
- Draw a line from just underneath the crown down to behind the ear.
- Do the same thing on the opposite side of the head.
- To create balance in the back of the head, draw a line straight down the center back and then create a horizontal part from the occipital bone down to behind the ear.
- Take a small section, elevate it slightly and begin cutting. Note: an elevated cut will give you a slightly broken line. You can cut this when the hair is dry.
- Work horizontally for the bottom part of the haircut to focus on achieving a clean, square shape.
- Take small sections when cutting horizontally to avoid overdrawing.
- Increase elevation as you work through the head shape.
- For the side sections, create a horizontal perimeter based off the back of the haircut and work your way up using horizontal partings and a little elevation.
- Dependent on your client's part, one side may be weaker or less dense. Don't add a ton of layering on the weak side.
