Graduated Bob: Discover More about This Stylish Cut
Graduated bob hairstyles come in many variations. The hair can be cut in a layered or stepped way or it can be extremely thinned out. These bobs can give bounce to curls and add the appearance of volume to straight hair. We’ll discuss a few styling tips regarding this fashionable and versatile hairstyle.
You may call it a shag haircut or a graduated bob (sometimes even a stepped or stacked haircut), but one thing’s for sure: this is a stunning look. Whatever you call it, graduated haircuts work virtually for every hair quality, length, or hair structure. However, you must pay attention to some details. If you have very fine hair, you should be careful not to thin out the ends too much. In a good haircut, your stylist must create optically pleasing transitions between the different lengths of hair. Otherwise, the hairstyle will quickly look too lean.

Graduated bob hairstyle: Pay attention to the hair structure
Hairdressers will recommend that fine hair not be cut into a long graduated bob that goes beyond your shoulders. This is because the ends of your hair would look too thin. However, shorter bobs will end up adding volume. Layers reduce the weight of your hair and so longer graduated bobs are ideal for thick hair, whereas shorter versions may end up looking a bit too poufy.
Limp curls will have far more spring with a graduated bob. As always, the transitions from layer to layer should be smooth and the top layer should not be too short so as to avoid the dreaded poodle look.
