Oh, that charming stacked bob haircut!
Raising from the classic 60s, the stacked bob keeps breaking the hearts of ladies as well as everyone around them if they go for that extra volume and a rounded, full-bodied shape at the back of the head.
This is exactly what a stacked bob haircut is about: it’s cut shorter at the nape, with layers, which give a lot of texture and volume to the cut (that’s why women with thin hair especially like a stacked style.) However, women with dense and thick hair can get their benefit too as the stacked layers will help to remove that undesirable bulk and provide more movement.
Stacked bob haircuts can be extremely short, mid-length, with or without bangs – and this versatility explains why they never go out of style.
If cut professionally, precisely to perfection, a stacked bob has so many varieties that it can suit any face shape and hair type.
The gallery below showcases a wide array of gorgeous stacked bob hairstyles as well as recommendations and answers on the most popular questions about stacked hairstyles. So, if you’re looking to try out this cut and striving for a doze of inspiration, just scroll down.
