How to Get Victoria Beckham's Haircut. Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is probably the most photographed and followed woman in the world. Public interest in her style, image, husband and trek to America supersede anything I've ever seen. So it's no surprise that people everywhere are wondering how they, too, can get her look. Fascination with Mrs. Beckham's hairstyles has everyone wanting to know how to get the latest "Pob." This time it's easy. It's just a classic graduated bob with layers and it's fairly simple to do if you follow these steps.
Things You'll Need
- Styling Wax
Work on clean wet hair and start by analyzing the length of the perimeter. In the back with the client's chin to her chest, determine where the hairline starts.
Section the back of the hair from ear to ear, across the top of the head. Comb the hair cleanly and smooth it flat against her head.
Cut along the natural hairline along the back. This will be your guide for the rest of the cut.
Have the client lift her chin to a natural position and turn her head to the left looking over her left shoulder. Comb the hair straight down over her ear and determine the guide line from ear to jaw line.
Cut a clean straight line following the natural jaw line.
Repeat on the other side.
At this point you should have a basic shape of a graduated bob. Short in back and longer in front with the longest part framing the face.
Now, start the layers. With her chin to her chest again, take a one-inch section in the center of the back and cut at a 45 degree angle. Continue up the back of the head and follow the head's natural shape.
Continue to the left until you reach the back of the left ear and then to the right until you reach the right ear. At this point you should have even graduated layers.
Now you have to connect the dots and make the front connect to the back without losing your length. Take the shorter piece from the top of the head and section down the middle part. You should have a line from short to long with the longest part being the front (your guide from the beginning). Cut the corner between the back and the front without cutting your original guide.
Continue sectioning across the top of the head and cutting the corner to connect the back to the front. By the time you get to the temples you should not be cutting much.
Top blend the sides, section vertically from the bottom of your chin length guide to the top. There should only be a slight corner at this point. You should now have a perfect graduated bob.
To add a little more edge and really make it a "Beckham Bob," use a razor or texturizing shears and soften all the edges without ruining your pre-cut lines.
Gently blow dry the hair, and finish with a styling wax, to really showoff the layers.
