Here’s How To Expertly Texturize Bobs And Lobs

1. Starting at where you see the most bulk, take a horizontal section and elevate it at a 90 degree angle.
2. Keeping your ARC™ Scissors SYMMETRY 10/10 Reversible Texturizer parallel to the hair, cut into the section vertically and then comb it out after every few cuts.
3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 wherever excess weight needs to be removed.
Note: If you need to remove even more weight for clients with a lot of hair, Megan says to use the ARC™ Scissors PHANTOM 7″ scissor instead.
4. When you move to the front of the perimeter, again, elevate your section at a 90 degree angle.
5. Then, go under the section and chip away at the hair to create hidden layers. “This will give the front of your bob movement without taking away from the strong shape you created,” shares Megan.
