Graduated Bob Hairstyle

Thursday, 12 November 2009

graduated bob hairstyleThe graduated bob hairstyle is in vogue again today. Lots of celebrities are seen having their hair bobbed in the way when the upper hair is cut in ledges. The graduated bob comes from Latin «gradus» that means level. It is well-known that this hair style was popular in the ancient times in Egypt if you recollect frescos and paintings where the pharaohs's hair resembled the long bob. So far as the preferences of the Egyptians were quite similar, we can confirm that the long bob style became the visit card of Egypt of that time.

Graduated bob is the universal haircut since it may be done with the hair of any thickness and structure. Though, it will go with young girls and young women with square or oval type of face. Middle-aged women look younger when they have their hair bobbed, especially those with bigger and tougher face lines. The bob style makes them look more feminine and attractive. The length of the graduated bob helps to make the neck look appropriate, and soften line of the chin to make it more expressive.

Bob style technique

How we can have this haircut? Clean and wet hair is combed in the direction of the hair growth. Then we start with the fringe. After that the hair is divided into five zones and each zone is fixed with the hair clip. The hair is cut from the back, and the small root is created to cover the scull and the small area of the neck.  Using a comb, make the line you wish to follow in order to set the cutting guide for the back. Working from back to front on each side all the time work your way around to the front of the hair until you reach the front guide.

The length of the hair cut is formed from the back, and the other hair is just leveled and cut. The hair by the sides is a little bit longer than in the back, thus the smooth movement from hair in the back to the lateral locks should be provided.

After you have your hair bobbed, go to the stage of graduation. Hair is combed to the back, the fringe is separated and combed to the front of the forehead, dividing into three equal sections. The average part of hair is put up under the straight angle to the head.  Considering the straight line along the upper part of the head, the average length of the fringe is cut and other locks are leveled against it. For instance, the lock of the right upper zone is leveled against the length of the central fringe lock and cut considering the length of the average lock of hair.

All the other locks are cut and thus, finally, all locks from beneath will be a little bit longer than locks from above, thus making the «feathering» or graduation. After the upper zone is cut, we come to the lateral hair. And finally, the fringe is trimmed and unwanted hair is cut.

Styling of graduated hair style

The great advantage of the graduated bob style is the ease to model. Some hair care products for styling are evenly applied to clean and wet hair. All hair is divided into zones which are separated into locks. The styling should be started from lateral zones, smoothly going to the neck part and accurately managing every part of the hair. Hair locks from the front and vertical area are styled to the forehead, and from the temples towards the face. To add more volume, the hair is combed in the reverse direction; it also may be styled in beautiful waves and fix with the hair spray.

If you curl your hair using large rollers, you will get the very feminine style of your graduated bob haircut. Take a round comb and style your hair towards the face, while the hair ends are curled with the iron curler. To have your hair style look natural and splendid, you'd better use special hair sprays of strong fixation that do not glue hair and make them elastic, instead.
