A bob cut is one of the oldest hairstyles for women. It first gained popularity in the 1920s when the first bob styles first appeared. Since the 20s, the bob hairstyle has grown in popularity, but is has pretty much remained the same. Typically cut straight around the head and sometimes with bangs, most women often have a problem getting the style just right. Even more are afraid that the style simply isn't them and based on the fact that sometimes the bob cut can fail spectacularly, it is important to get it right.

In this guide we are going to be looking at how to cut a straight bob wig. Starting with a wig makes sense since learning how to cut a wig may help you when you want to get the same bob cut for your hair.

Step 1: Start by Buying the Right Bob Wig

One of the best things about straight bob wigs is that they allow you to achieve the bob style without risking your natural hair. But they also need to be cut to suit the shape of your face and the length that you need.

The first step in this process is choosing the best straight bob wig. Lucky for you, we have that step covered for you.

As we are certain you already know, a bob cut can look very good layered with perfect waves and 100% human hair with a lot of volume will work perfectly when achieving layers.

Step 2: Try the Wig on

Now that you have the perfect wig, the next step is to straighten the wig. This will also help you determine the ideal length that you want the wig to have after the cut. It is therefore important to note some of the sections of the wig that you think might be asymmetrical or are longer than you need them to be. These will be the sections of the wig that you will cut.

It is therefore important that during this stage you wear the wig as you would once you've cut it. Take the time to adjust the wig so it fits perfectly on your head and then proceed to measure it for cutting.

Step 3: Trim the Ends and Bangs

Now remove the wig and place it on a wig stand. Most wigs will have loner bangs and ends than is required and they are made that way to help with the cutting and styling process. So, the first step to cutting a straight bob wig is to cut the bangs and the ends to your ideal size.

Use your fingers you guide you through the hair and show you how much you can cut through. Place some hair between the second and third fingers when cutting to prevent pulling out the hair root as you cut.

Step 4: Cut to the Desired Length

Now take a section of the wig's hair and holding your scissors vertically, cut along the length of the hair to get the desired length. It is very important to let the edge of the scissors slide down the outside of the hair and the scissors should maintain a diagonal line as you cut.

Repeat as much as needed until you get the right length of the wig. If you need to, you can place the wig on your head to make sure that that you are getting the length that you desire.

If you are unsure, we suggest that you err on the side of caution. Cut as long as you can stand and then trim the edges until you get the size that you desire.

If you would like cut and shape the bangs, you may find that you need to try on the wig more than once to get the perfect bangs.

Step 5: Style the Wig as Desired

Once you are satisfied with the cut of the wig, you can put it back on and style it as desired. The one thing about getting the Donmily 13x4 Lace Front Wig Straight Bob 150% Density Hair is that you can style it in numerous different ways. Like we mentioned before the volume makes it easy for you to achieve the look you desire.

But it is also worth pointing out that you can change the style of the wig from straight to wavy as desired. You can also change the color to any that you desire.

As you can see, it is very easy to cut a bob wig to the desired length. The most important thing to remember in this process is that you need to have a style in mind at the beginning of the process and then wear the wig before cutting to see where to cut. This will help you get the desired cut without too many tries. But don't be afraid to try on the wig as many times as possible until you get the right look. Remember that this is not a science; how you cut depends on what you want.
