Angle Bob Reminiscent of the Wedge

Angle Bob Reminiscent of the Wedge
This updated Angle Bob is reminiscent of the 1970’s wedge hairstyle also called the Dorothy Hamill. The same features that made the wedge so popular make this a really desirable style. It is cut in such a way that you can swing your head around and it still maintains the shape. This is a great style for straight hair and can be worn by women of every age, whether aged twenty or thirty or over 40 and beyond. The lines of the style are perky and uplifted - perfect for business and casual. The short length and the shape make it fast drying and very easy to style.

The bangs are long enough to swoop to the side so that they blend in with the stacked sides. This creates width at about eye level and is a very flattering line for many people. The sides are short and shaped to stay in place, but still long enough to cover the ears. The angle of the cut is higher in back than in front. The nape area is left blunt and full. It is tapered up to the stacked crown.
    Straight Hair
  • Shampoo and condition this style with body building products.
  • Towel blot and apply firm hold styling foam or gel.
  • Blow this style dry using a large round brush. Working on small sections and using the round brush helps to create the slight curve and shape shown at the sides and back.

    Curly Hair

  • If you have curly hair, this style is even easier to wear.
  • Simply shampoo and condition with smoothing products.
  • Then, towel blot, apply smoothing gel and serum and blow it dry with a large round brush.
  • Use a narrow flat iron to straighten and flatten the bangs.
  • Or, if you prefer to wear it curly, apply a blend of serum and gel to add definition to the curls. Allow it to dry naturally or use a diffuser to speed up the drying time.
  • An attractive variation is to wear the back curly and to smooth the bangs to the side with a flat iron.
Hair Color
The hair color effects pictured here add to the beauty of the style. Light blonde highlights are applied to the top only. They are only two or three shades lighter than her base shade of light brown to avoid too much contrast. The lighter top and darker sides and back show off the shape of the cut.
