Transcript:How to Cut an A-line Bob Haircut

Hi I'm professional stylist Kelly Britton and I am going to show you how to create an A- line Bob Haircut.

Supplies for Cutting an A-line Bob Haircut

The things you will need are:
  • Scissors
  • Comb
  • Blow dryer
  • Medium size round brush

Instructions for How to Cut an A-line Bob Haircut

First thing you want to do is section the hair creating a middle parting, curving right at the round of the head. Clip this hair out of the way, do the same with the opposite side of the head.

Start working at the nape leaving an 1/2 inch of hair hanging down in the neckline.You want to cut a curve neckline right at the nape end of the hairline, go straight down with your comb, cut curving up, when you get to middle, cut curve back down.

Additional Instructions for How to Cut an A-line Bob Haircut

Take your next section of hair down, start in the middle pulling your fingers parallel and angle out towards you. Let your next half inch section of hair down and repeat this process, and what you will get is this nice stacked A-line figure.

After you angled the back of the hair, pull the sides, establish where you want the hair to end off around your face. Pull end of the hair to the chin and connect, the front to the nape. Repeat on the opposite side of the head making sure both front pieces match up equally.Pull the hair pieces straight down and note where they end on her chin. Then let your top sections down, comb from the middle of the head, back towards the crown, in the middle of the middle partings, take 1 inch to 1 & 1/2 inch sections of hair and comb it forward, pull it straight down to the edge of the nose and make a straight cut. Now pull pieces of hair from the side and frame around the face connecting the bangs cut sliding down. Continue with the opposite side of the head with same motion. Pull the bang section up so its parallel with head, and point cut just to it give texture.

Style on low heat setting, curling all the hair under with a medium size round brush.When you get to the bang section, use a low heat and your medium round brush , pull back the bangs and then curl under.That is how you cut an A line Bob hair style.
