Modern Texturized Bob from TIGI’s Anthony Mascolo

This textured cut from TIGI’s new Game On collection is an updated version of one of Anthony Mascolo’s favorite, versatile shapes. The strong structure is balanced with soft blending for a face-flattering effect and styling adaptability. For the color, shades of lily white beige and buff suede are worked through the hair and under the perimeter, creating panels at the sides and front to enhance movement and soft texture.

    Take a slight diagonal section from the occipital bone to the back corner of the hairline. Comb the hair 90 degrees to the head shape and elevate to a 45 degree angle. With the finger position parallel to the head shape, blunt-cut to remove length and weight.

    Continue with diagonal sections towards the crown. Over-direct each section back to the previous one. Use a stationery 45 degree angle elevation to progress the shape from the nape towards the sides.
