1 - BerlinHi there my Friends,
A bob line still humbles me,especially if it is blunt, showing any imperfections.



Oh how forgiving is the LOB!!

soft-wave-hairstyles-shoulder-length-hairThe trendy “Lob” is a soft line broken by the shoulders, due to its length it is an abstract line. When razor cut it is even softer, and much easier to style into a lazy curl.

During my career I think I have seen every variation of a bob line,  “I believe the classics will withstand the passage of time, so they are worth mastering”.Viv xx

At HairDesignerTV.com you can study 8 bobs in my “online Bob course” and truly master these tricky techniques.


In the video tutorial below: you will see the Razor “L” + “Etching technique” (one of 7 razor methods) that I like to use.  This method creates a soft exterior and interior at the same time.  Yes it is one of the more advanced techniques so before you try this watch with your razor in your hand (PS remove the Blade) and mimic my hand motion ITS A MUST TO DEVELOP GOOD FORM BEFORE REMOVING HAIR.

Katie Razor Bob

This short bob (in video) also works as a  longer “Lob” = (Long Bob length).  Katie’s Bob shows  facial framing making it easier to wear for most face shapes.

Today’s  ‘Lob’ suits wide faces as the long facial framing closes down the face.

 Open or Close the Face, the Quest is to create OVAL

For faces that enjoy more lift and openness the Katie bob is perfect.
This style was Inspired by Scarlett Johansson bob.
