This cut is somewhat self-explanatory and pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Picture a retro-esque Coca Cola bottle—the shape of the bob that starts with a pinched fringe that transitions into long layers through the ends. The bob becomes completely customizable depending on whether your client prefers it slightly longer or shorter, and with a sweeping fringe or heavier definition.
We explore building the perimeter of this cut as we razor a concave baseline, cutting it round to the head. To spice things up even more, we introduce all kinds of fun techniques to create our visible, but, invisible layers. Finally, we wrap up the cut with a 3-STEP fringe giving us the epic signature of this Bottleneck Bob.
