Tim Hartley’s step by step hairdressing tutorial is an 80s inspired bob variation focusing on a rounded back and a clean open fringe area to frame the brow and eyes. Tim uses techniques such as the positioning of curved graduation, over-direction and fringe placement and provides hints on suitability. 

The final result is a dynamic, square, geometric shape, with a defining framing fringe and a rounded graduated back reminiscent of the 80s bob. The architecture of the shape is perfectly enhanced by the screaming mars colour by Christiano Lanza.
