SHK: HOW DOES THE LOB WORK? WHAT TECHNIQUE DO YOU USE? WHAT FACE SHAPE IS BEST FOR THAT LOOK? DOES IT WORK WITH BANGS?

Anh Co Tran: The lob is a great haircut for someone who wants to go shorter and wants their hair to look more styled.  The length varies from below the collar bone to right above the neckline.  It’s a great transition to go shorter. It’s such a phenomenon right now. I feel that ladies want more of a style to their long hair. Of course it’s more of a trend now, but the way I go about it is customizing it to their lifestyles. This haircut will work on all face shapes, bangs, and textures. The key to my lob is the soft undercut. It makes it easier to style and has that “Lived-In” look.

DO YOU FOLLOW HAIR TRENDS? IS THERE ONE THAT YOU LOVE OR HATE?

I always love to see what is in style. I always want to be in the know. I do love the platinum look and the crazy color hair. It all depends on the person who wears it. If they can carry it or not. That’s why customizing it is very important!

WHAT HAIRCUT IS EFFORTLESS, CHIC, AND NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE?

A well-cut haircut that is customized to the person face, style, lifestyle and personality is always timeless. That’s what I mean by a “lived-In hair”.

WHAT IS ONE “HAIR RULE” THAT YOU ARE NOT AFRAID TO BREAK?

The one rule I’m NOT afraid to break is to take out weight.  There is a very great way to take it out without thinning it too much. I also don’t use the thinning scissors. It’s horrible on the conditioning of the hair… I only use straight scissor to take out weight.

MOST COMMON REQUEST YOU GET AT YOUR SALON?

The most requested look right now is a long bob with lighter highlights. It’s crazy how many I do a day and how many ladies that wants their hair shorter. I’m glad hair is going towards more of a haircut and style, instead of just long. Of course long is always classic, though.

DO YOU HAVE A PHILOSOPHY OR MOTTO ABOUT HAIR?

Yes, I do. I always believe in cutting hair dry because I can see how the hair lays, cowlicks, and natural texture.  Movement and the way their hair naturally fall are very important to me.  I want all my clients to not work too hard on their hair daily.  I love that get up and go hair. Also, a huge fan of sex hair, the just got out of bed look.  That’s why I love giving them the “lived-In” look.  People are too busy to mess with their hair these days, so the lower the maintenance, the better.

WHY DO YOU AND JOHNNY WORK SO WELL TOGETHER?

We have a very similar aesthetic and philosophy for hair. I love natural, editorial-ish hair, but with a bit of an edge. Kate Moss always come to my mind. We understand each other very well. We are both very passionate.
