How will the hairdresser go about creating an A-line bob?

Your hairdresser will work with clean, wrung out and perfectly detangled hair. First of all, they will define the base and the structure of your bob by discussing it with you. Your hairdresser will then start by cutting your hair from the back working towards the front. Their delicate and meticulous movements will create a plunging line to get the result you desire.

What exactly is a mid-length A-line bob?

In order to get a mid-length cut, your lengths at the back must stop at the base of the nape of your neck. As a result, the nape is very rarely revealed.
