We know what you’re thinking, it’s been a while since you brushed up your basics and created on of these babies, but fear not… Donald Scott NYC has you covered. Follow along with his tutorial for the perfect shaggy bob below. Oh, and check out some of his supremely cool goodies, his tool line will have you swooning.
STEP 1 Prep the hair by misting with DSNYC Liquid Tool Glide for ultimate slip, glide and shine.

shortest layer. Then pivot from that point until you reach just behind the ear, vertical to the head shape.

your Carving Comb.
STEP 5 Apply one or two mists of Prepare, and repeat these actions on the opposite side.
