How to Style Angled Bob Cut with Layers
Angled bob is, basically, a type of haircut that is shorter in the back and gradually transitions to a longer length in the front. If you want to cut angled bob on your own, it’s crucial to get salon-quality scissors which have sharper blades that allow you to cut hair without damaging it.
You also need a handheld mirror (optional) and a fine-toothed comb. Keep your hair damp and pull it into a ponytail on top of your head. Measure how long you want your angled bob to be and mark with a clip or bobble. Then, cut right there. That’s the longest layer.
Now all you need to do is to segment hair into three sections (two toward the front and one in the back). Twist these sections in another ponytail and cut right across. You’ll get a layered look that you can style in many ways.
You can keep your angled bob with layers sleek and elegant, or you can mess it up a little bit for a casual look. Bandanas, headpieces, sunglasses, ribbons, and many other accessories can help you style your bob according to your outfit, occasion, and other factors.
