“The White Lotus” has sparked a global fascination with Sicily, as women now dream of embarking on a journey to this enchanting destination with stylishly chopped Italian bobs, just like the renowned Italian actress Simona Tabasco. This trendy hairstyle features a one-length bob with voluminous ends that elegantly rest on or just below the chin. The option of adding a fringe allows for versatility, ranging from eyebrow-grazing to an equally chic one-length look. Check out these step-by-step details from Teresa Romero, Creative Director for Sam Villa and Artistic/Education Director for Jose Luis Salon on his spring/summer ’23 trend down.
How to: Cut
Step 1: For hair to drop easily into a natural fall while airdrying, use little to no tension while cutting the perimeter. Use a Sam Villa Signature Series 7” Dry Cutting Shear on dry hair and the Classic Series 5.5” Shear on wet hair.
Step 2: For a clean neckline, low hair lines may require shaving the neck and high low-density hairlines may need to remain more one length to protect the structured perimeter.
Step 3: For a precision finish, texturize with the 7” Dry Cutting Shear after hair is dried and styled.
How to: Styling
Step 1: Casual finish with loose texture – use a Sam Villa Pro Results 3-in-1 Blow Dry Hot Brush to create waves and/or a beveled flip at the ends. The combination of a blow dryer with a hot brush adds polish and shine while drying and makes it easy to add shape.
Step 2: Smooth finish with high gloss – use a Sam Villa Signature Series Sleeker Professional Straightening Iron to smooth hair and bevel ends/fringe.
