Cutting an asymmetrical bob requires precise measuring and parting of hair. Divide the hair into equal, horizontal sections, and cut the bottom of each section along a diagonal slant. You need a fine-toothed comb, sharp craft scissors, five or six hair bands, two mirrors and a blow dryer. A round brush is optional.
- Rinse, and comb the hair
Wash hair to remove any products or build-up. Rinse. Comb hair straight down along lines of natural growth.
- Section the hair with horizontal parts
Part the hair along a horizontal line on top of the head, where a headband would go. Knot the hair above the part with one or two hair bands. Part the remaining hair along a second horizontal line halfway between the base of the hairline and the first part. Gather hair above second part with two or three hair bands.
- Cut diagonally along each layer
Cut straight across the remaining hair to the longest length of the finished bob. Then start at 1 inch above that length on the left, and cut diagonally across to the right. Repeat for each individual section of gathered hair.
- Add texture to the front
Trim the hair framing the face to hang at irregular lengths by cutting 1/2-inch pieces from random strands.
- Blow dry
Blow dry the hair, using a round brush to smooth layers if desired.
