I'm looking for someone who can cut a fantastic angled bob!!...I'm in southern Indiana, but not probs going to Louisville...I got a fantastic cut at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, but it's grown out, and I've not found anyone who can cut it properly...Seems everyone has their own interpretation of the "bob".

Any names are greatly appreciated!!

Yeah, I know what you mean about personal interpretation of the term "bob".

I used to wear my hair in a bob, cut diagonal forward (shorter in back and longer in front? I'm guessing your "angled" bob is maybe similar?), which I preferred at a fairly extreme angle. I found one girl at a salon in New Albany who could do it PERFECTLY, exactly like I liked (she was from **drum roll** Chicago!).

And then she moved back to CHI!

I was crushed. Never found anyone after that who could replicate it, and so now settle for a longer paigeboy-type style.

So I can't point you into the direction of any particular salon, but I would suggest searching out salons that stay current of the latest techniques and are more......forward thinking? There seem to be a lot of salons that cater to grannies, as in, they can only do a few types of cuts, in various lengths of each type. Ask for something a little avant garde, and you come out looking decidely different than what you asked for!

Good luck on your hunt for the perfect bob--keep us informed of your findings!

Cool! Well, good luck with finding the perfect salon.

when I had mine like that I liked it no longer than my base hairline at the back, and the tips brushed my collarbones in front (I have a pretty long neck, so it was a lot more angled than it sounds). My mom hates that style, she says it makes her feel like she 'shoulda had a V8'! haha
But I love it. At the time I did it, it was very unusual, and that was what I was after--a way to buck the system without being too over the top.

Now it's one of the most standard hair styles.

I could never get anyone to do the back the way I wanted; they always cut it so that it "stacked", but the way my hair is textured, it just looks like someone didn't know what they were doing!
