Deep Angle Bob Hairstyle

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

This is the story of one girl generously donating her long hair to Locks of Love, an organization that creates human hair wigs for children who lose their hair due to alopecia.

Giving up her long hair was a hard choice for this middle schooler but her reward was a dramatically updated image. Her long, grade school hairstyle became a fashion-forward deeply angled bob.

Our model’s “before” look and the traumatic first “CUT.” Her hair was put into a ponytail and cut off.
(This was done to control the hair in preparation for mailing.)

Her finished look is the very trendy Deep Angle Bob. You might call it an Inverted Bob. This is not meant to be a detailed description of how to cut this look. For that, you will need to visit an instructor for hands-on training, but the general description follows.

The back of this style is cut very short with feathery fringe at the nape area. To get the feathers, direct all of the nape area up to the occipital bone and cut it there. After the ponytail was cut off as in the picture above, the center was already short enough to begin the look. (I don’t advise beginning the haircut in this way for everyone.) The cut is started in the center back at the occipital bone All the hair from either side was pulled toward the center causing it to become progressively longer toward the ears. The back and the neckline was finished by freehand trimming to shape it in to follow the natural curve of the head.

The top hair was brought down to the occipital bone and cut. It was then layered to take away the “wedge” effect.

As you can see, the sides of this style are long, creating the angle. What is not apparent in the picture, is that they are texturized to take out extra weight at the bottom and to allow for some piecyness. This style is parted slightly to the side and is asymmetrical with the heavy side being longer than the other. The light side also has some shorter pieces of hair around the face.
(Heavy side = The hair is combed toward that side. Light side = The part is on that side.)

While this hairstyle is fine worn sleek and unfussy, putting a little work into it gives it a fashion magazine edge. After shampooing, apply firm hold styling foam and blow it dry. Create fullness on the top while keeping the sides close to the face. Use a small amount of hair wax to scrunch in to and separate the pieces created by the texturizing.
