Geometric shapes like this rounded bob that tilt away from the jaw line to the nape of the neck take discipline and control when cutting.  Go couture by accenting with a step-by-step fringe that’s precision cut to perfection.

For an ultra smooth, close cropped finish, try the following technique from Sam Villa:

  • Apply Redken iron silk 07 at a minimum of 6” away from the section.
  • Place the fine teeth of the comb into each section from underneath at the scalp area, with the teeth facing toward you.
  • Position the outside of the Sam Villa Signature Series Straightening Iron on top of the teeth of the comb and slowly comb through the section with the outside edge of the iron on top of the comb.


Deep rich brunette hair needs light reflective dark colors – it’s what makes them natural looking and shiny.  When creating these deeper colors and tones, focus on dimension.  Try highlighting hair 1-2 levels lighter than the base color as seen on the right side of this image – it’s more about light reflection versus visual lightening or highlights.  “One dimensional dark hair color never looks natural, you need the light and dark colors working together,” says Cowen.
