Pleated Lob Haircut for Thick Hair by Russell Mayes

Learn how to cut a lob haircut with a subtle twist. Create alternating texturized sections or ‘pleating’ that add beautiful movement to the hair while maintaining the integrity of the shape. Russell maintains the overall shape without beveling it, so the result is a timeless, effortless long bob hairstyle.

Russell uses Jatai Kyoto Scissors and begins by cutting a blunt one-length shape. Then, in alternating sections, deep point cuts sections to give it freedom and remove weight. Think of it as giving your hair space to breathe and move naturally. This is more of a lob haircut for thick hair as opposed to thin hair as the technique helps to remove ‘thickness.’

Throughout the video, Russell gives you some helpful tips and tricks to avoid common mistakes when cutting a long bob to ensure your haircut turns out perfect. Feel free to pause, rewind, and practice as you go along.
