How to Wet Cut and Style a Curly Bob with TIGI
It’s time to embrace natural texture with effortless elegance with this step by step on how to cut and style a curly bob with Philip Downing for TIGI…
1 Make a centre profile parting from the forehead to the nape.
2 Isolate a large fringe area from the top of the head to the low recession area with a crescent-shaped section.
3 Take a horizontal sub-section. Comb the hair to its natural fall and point-cut slightly rounded to one finger’s depth.
4 Comb down the remaining fringe and follow the guide.
5 Take two curved diagonal back sections from the fringe to the top of the occipital bone, and connect them squarely at the back to create an internal rectangular section.
6 To separate the front from the back, create a sub-section horizontally at the crown.
7 Part the top section in the middle, take a horizontal section behind the fringe, and elevate to 90°C and point-cut squarely to the head shape, disconnecting from the fringe.
8 Continue working towards the back, using horizontal sections to create a layering pattern. Repeat on the other side.
9 Take a vertical section behind the crown, comb and elevate to 90°C to the round of the head and point-cut squarely to the head shape.
10 Continue working with pivoting sections towards the sides, slightly over-directing each section back to the previous section. Repeat on the other side.
11 Throughout the interior shape, twist-cut the hair to loosen the texture. Then point-cut to reshape the baseline and perimeter horizontally at a low elevation.
