Graduated Bob Hairstyle 

You Will Need
  • A Comb
  • A pair of Shears
  • A Razor
  • Clips
  • Styling Wax
  • A Blow-Dryer 
  • Start off by washing your ‘client’s’ hair. When desiring to get the graduated bob haircut, it is best to work on clean and wet hair. Wet hair however does not stand to signify that the hair is soaking wet; it simply means hair that is blessed with a little more moisture than dry hair.
  • Now, with your client’s chin placed closest to her chest, make a move to determine where her hairline begins. From ear to ear and across the back of the head, section the back of the hair. With the comb, comb out the hair to rest it flat against the head. The purpose of combing out the hair is to rid it of knots and tangles and also make it easier to cut.
  • Along the back of the head, cut hair along its natural hairline. By doing this, you will be creating a guideline for the rest of the cut. Ask your client to lift her head and turn it towards to the left. Comb out the hair again, straight down. With an expert eye, check for the guideline that should extend from her ear to her jaw. Once you’re done with this, cut a clean straight line keeping well in line with your client’s natural jaw line. Repeat the same procedure on the right side.
  • If you have done it right, you should notice the basic shape of the graduated bob, short at the back and longer in the front.
  • Ask your client to place her chest back to her chin again. You will now have to start off with the layers. Take a one-inch section of hair and in the centre of the back, cut hair at a 45 degree angle. Continue cutting hair as you follow the head’s natural shape. Cut hair until you reach the back of the left ear and move back until you reach the right ear. You should now see even and graduated layers.
  • Connect the hair at the back of the head with the front without compromising on the length. Take the shorter piece from the top of the head and section it down to the middle part. Also, cut out the corner of the hair between the back and the front. However, make it a point to not lose the shape you worked so hard for.
  • Blend the sides of the hair section vertically from the bottom of the chin all the way to the back of the neck, but just before the back of the head. With the successful implementation of this step, your perfect graduated bob should be done with.
  • For that out-of-world but still trendy look, use a razor or shears and soften the edges without disturbing the look of the style.
  • Lastly, blow dry the hair and style it with a generous dollop of hair wax.
