Thanks to “The White Lotus,” women around the world are dreaming of visiting Sicily with freshly chopped Italian bobs à la Simona Tabasco.
It is a one length bob with heavy ends that sit on the chin or slightly below. Fringe is optional and can range from eyebrow grazing to one length.
“It’s the heavier, full, chunky perimeter and lack of layers that set this bob apart from others," Teresa Romero, Artistic/Education Director for Jose Luis Salon, explains. "The weight and volume are at the ends which brings a lot of attention to the chin area."
Below, Romero (@_teresa_romero) breaks this spring/summer ’23 trend down.
- For hair to drop easily into a natural fall while air drying, use little to no tension while cutting the perimeter.
- For a clean neckline, low hair lines may require shaving the neck and high low-density hairlines may need to remain more one length to protect the structured perimeter.
- For a precision finish, texturize with a dry cutting shear after hair is dried and styled.
- For a casual finish with loose texture, use a blow dry hot brush to create waves and/or a beveled flip at the ends. The combination of a blow dryer with a hot brush adds polish and shine while drying and makes it easy to add shape.
- For a smooth finish with high gloss, use a professional straightening iron to smooth hair and bevel ends/fringe.
“This cut is low maintenance and can usually be styled with little to no effort. Plan to get it touched up every 6 to 8 weeks to maintain the chin grazing length,” adds Romero.
