Pro Tips for Cutting a 3-Tiered Bob

  2. Texturizing techniques like razor cutting can create different layers and add a choppy edge. 
  3. Highlighting: Adding highlights and lowlights in different colors and tones fosters a multidimensional textured look. 
  4. Styling: Add a side part, sweeping fringe or waves and curls for multiple styling options to fit any mood or occasion.
  5. Refreshening or adding/removing texture on the go is easy with the Sam Villa Pro Results Cordless Flat Iron. It is USB chargeable and hold 45 minutes of heat styling power!
