How-To: De-Bob the Hair


How-To: De-Bob the Hair

The enemy of volume and movement is weight! Whether short or long, thin or thick, too much bulk can ruin any style. It’s time to give your clients the gorgeous, textured cut she deserves! By using Baker’s De-Bulker, a texturizing trimmer with three different guards (The De-Bob for light texture, De-Bulk for moderate and the De-Bush for extreme) you can texturize quickly and more consistently while opening up a whole new world of creative possibilities. Here’s how to get this feathery, highly-textured look courtesy of De-Bulker creator, Michael Baker!
