Cropped Bob with Square Fringe by Damien Carney for Joico

For this look, Joico’s Damien Carney created a dramatic and feminine shape using multiple cutting methods. “Graduation, scissor-over-comb and some carefully-placed disconnecting lengths create this modern, short look that can be adjusted for any hair texture and face shape,” says Damien. “I designed the disconnected fringe sections to strategically open up the face. Disconnection also offers unlimited styling versatility—one can conceal or reveal endlessly.”
