The stacked Bob haircut is an alternative to the layered cut where the hair is clipped into a precise angle or shape.
The ends of the hair in the stacked Bob appear to be stacked on top of one another. This is a useful way of adding bulk or weight to the style in desired areas.
The stacked Bob adds an interesting shape to your hairstyle and can emphasize the shape of the head, flatter specific facial features, or appear to elongate your neck.
Every hair type can benefit from a stacked Bob hairstyle. If your locks are coarse or curly, a stacked Bob will allow the natural curl to build volume in desired areas.
Fine hair can be cut in a stacked Bob that forms smooth, curving lines to frame the head and facial features. Normal hair can wear virtually any version of the stacked Bob hairstyle beautifully.
As with most Bob’s, the stacked Bob hairstyle is so easy to maintain. Wash and wear if you’re in a rush, or play with hair products for styling experimentation.
The stacked Bob is just waiting for you to create your personal touches to the hairstyle. Alterations can be made to the fringe or bang area, length and layers can be used to play up some features and minimize others.
If you are interested in trying a stacked Bob for your latest look, but are not sure which variation to go for; the following is a basic stacked Bob that can be modified to suit your needs.
Ask your stylist for a stacked Bob that is tapered to be shorter at the nape of the neck and longer towards the face.
Request graduated layers that are carefully stacked to create lush body and movement with deliberate placement throughout the crown.
The sides of your hair should be cut to allow definition. If your features are sharp, ask for an uneven side part that directs a sweep of hair across the forehead, this will provide softening for your features.
