The long bob is basically a shoulder length or longer version of the classic chin-length hair cut you know and love. It's a great style for ladies with super straight or slightly wavy hair. Typically this version of the bob is angled at the back to give it a sleek, modern feel. You don't need to spend a wad of cash at your local salon to get this timeless style. Become your own stylist and get this look on your very own!

1.

Wash and condition your hair. Clean, conditioned hair is much easier to cut.

2.

Towel dry your hair. Don't dry it completely. You want your hair to be damp when you cut it.

3.

Part your hair down the center.

4.

Pin up each side, leaving a 1-inch wide section of hair down in the back.

5.

Tilt your head back at a 45-degree angle.

6.

Cut the back 1-inch section to your desired length. Cut it on a straight, horizontal line.

7.

Let down a 1/2-inch section of hair.

8.

Comb this new section to the center back.

9.

Cut this new section using the first section you cut as your guide length.

10.

Work your way from back to front on each side, cutting 1/2-inch sections using the original section you cut as your guide length.

11.

Tilt your head fully upright.

12.

Part your hair in the center.

13.

Comb the hair down in small sections, checking that the bottom edge is even. Work from back to front on each side, trimming any uneven sections.

14.

Style your hair and show off your new 'do!
