How It Works
Using curved scissors and a curved comb (which Genny says was made by a craft company that operates in Valtellina, Italy), Genny cuts either a concave or convex rounded bob in order to give a more balanced harmony to the overall form of the head.
While it’s an ideal technique to use when the shape of the skull presents imperfections, Genny says this curved bob works best for those with almost perfect facial features but he also recommends it to very young clients as well as older women who are looking for something with more style.
Here’s what else Genny said about the technique (translated from Italian):
“I have not learned this technique, but I have only exploited the principle knowledge of geometry, thinking about ‘solid’ geometry…Some forms of cutting require movements that often become complicated to realize, but with the reasoning of the usual geometry applied with trigonometry, it is possible to obtain surprising results. It is very cool.”
3 Tips For Curved Cutting
1. Ask the right questions during the consultation. The consultation helps determine if a client is right for this cut, which is why Genny says he talks about things like his client’s commitment to her hair, how she styles her hair at home, what she expects from this cut and the right approach to bridge what is desired and the actual finished result.
2. Create a balance between the occipital and frontal areas. Genny says to evaluate the exposure of the occipital with respect to the front to achieve a balance between the two. “This is a cut that is part of the bob hairstyle, which must always have a harmonious perspective from any point of view,” he shares. “If the profile is not well-balanced and well-rounded, and therefore pleasant, the cut is not recognized as excellent.”
3. Properly evaluate the front section. The secret to making this cut elegant and stylish lies in what you do with the fringe. So whether she wants blunt bangs or something more side-swept, Genny says to properly evaluate the fringe area in order to make the overall cut versatile.
