Australian artist and educator Tracey Hughes is known across the globe for her beautiful cut, style and color work.

In this step-by-step, offered exclusively to MODERN SALON, Hughes works on a model with very fine, textured hair, and customizes a bob to create the illusion of thickness and fullness.

The finished result is a modern shape, executed with precision.

“This precision methodology is ideal for fine hair as it retains structure into the shape, graduation builds up weight and the layering creates movement,” Hughes says.

Scroll through the photos and steps in the slideshow to get the full technique and learn how to create the ideal bob with volume even on clients with fine hair.
