Corin’s Angled Bob

To create this look, first I cut a design line into the perimeter of Corin’s hair to create the desired angle from back to front.

Then I part her hair down the center from her front hairline all the way back to her neckline. Next, I section the hair in about 1/2 inch – 1 inch diagonal forward partings beginning in the center back.

I begin blunt cutting this center back section in a 45 degree graduation. The blunt cutting preserves maximum weight and gives Corin’s fine hair more volume and the appearance of thicker hair.

I continue cutting graduated layers as I continue to cut in 1/2 inch to 1 inch sections to both sided of the middle part until I reach the ears. With each new section I over project the hair back to that original center part and line while being cautious not to cut into my original design line. This over projection of each section gradually builds length as the hair nears the side sections.

In the side sections I first like to blunt cut the hair in natural fall to match my original forward angle. Then I go back in with diagonal forward sections and over project the hair to the center back line and lightly point cut to soften the sides creating slight texture and allowing for movement within the cut.

Although I was not the last to color Corin’s hair you will notice that the solid level 7 neutral tone underneath really compliments this hair cut by providing extra weight and the illusion of thicker, fuller hair.


Thanks again, Corin, for being a wonderful client and letting me blog about you :)
