Layered Bob

The layered bob evolved from the graduated bob, although its square shape is in complete contrast to the graduated bob.


The cutting lines are angled up towards the jawline, creating an elongated shape at the back of the head. The internal layers are convex, which gives a rounded effect and takes the weight off the perimeter line.


The layered bob is not the easiest shape to cut. It involves creating a geometric outline, which can be difficult to balance.


The overall effect is a geometric shape with a soft, rounded layer and a textured edge.
