The Basics of the Haircut:
The haircut is a carefully-crafted bob-like cut that builds the majority of its bulk in the crown section of the head.

There is a steep contour in the fringe area, allowing for a side-sweep of the bangs when styling the look.

The cut is finished using a razor tool to further taper the ends and soften the edges of the perimeter cutting line. Pay special attention to the fringe area and keep the razor texturing smooth and deep. Work with smooth, even strokes from just below the mid-point of the length of the segment you are texturing. The ends of the cut should appear finely-grained, not choppy, and the overall layering should be smooth and sleek in styling.
