The Timeless Bob

Hi there my friends,  I have struggled my entire career to cut the perfect Bob.  Although Vidal Sassoon’s gave me great discipline, but I confess the Bob still remains a challenge that I enjoy conquering each and every time!   Do you relate to the frustration of the learning curve? But with good technique and practice the results are so rewarding.  How true this  quote (below) is by Aristotle.

“The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet”. Aristotle

This photo is very special to me, I cut this Bob in the 90’s proving that a classic will withstand the passage of time.

Red-BobAnother quote from Aristotle that I live by is when I ask the following:-

If I add or take away will this style become more beautiful?

Every detail is important.

If you would like to study the art of  Bob cutting with scissor and the razor, please join me for an eight week course on line at

I hope you enjoyed a trip down memory lane.

Best wishes
