Your Guide To This Fall’s Bottleneck Bob Haircut Trend 

Fall is here and so are the viral haircuts popping up on your client’s IG feed. Luckily, we put together a lookbook with must-know tips and inspo for this season’s hottest: The Bottleneck Bob.

 

Trend Breakdown: What Is A “Bottleneck” Bob?

It’s exactly what it sounds like. Picture a retro-esque Coca Cola bottle—the shape of the bob starts with a pinched fringe that transitions into blunt layers through the ends.

 

The bottleneck becomes completely customizable depending if your client prefers soft, sweeping fringe or heavier definition. For a crash course on fringe placement and cutting tips, read this fringe-cutting guide before trying out the trend—PLUS, your new favorite dry-cutting texturizing technique.

Tailor The Bottleneck To Medium-Length Clients

For clients who want to keep their length, the bottleneck trend can be easily adjusted to shoulder-length lobs.

 

You’ll want to be sure the layering stays blunt and fringe remains cropped for the “pinched” look. If you leave the bangs too long or blend the ends too much, you’ll lose the edgy finish that makes this look trendy.

Turn Your Client’s Classic Bob Into The Bottleneck Trend

Your bob clients will likely be the first to hop on this trend, so let’s make it a little easier for you.

 

Bob expert Chris Jones (@chrisjones_hair) says the easiest way to transition your bob clients to a shaggy look (like the bottleneck) is by adding a curtain bang. “A curtain bang is a great way to break up heavy lines around the face,” says Chris. “Be sure to keep layers long in the back for movement and texture.”
