Hailing from the classic 60s, the stacked bob is a shorter haircut that makes use of precisely cut graduated layers to create a rounded, full-bodied shape at the back of the head. Stacked bobs can be mid-length, super short, or with cute bangs, and this versatility is the reason why it never goes out style!

Look up to fashion stars Victoria Beckham, Jenny McCarthy, Evan Rachel Wood, and Halle Berry and how they pulled off a short bob that’s stacked and made it timeless! What’s exciting is that their stylish stacked bobs can now be easily duplicated in a variety of style.

Based on your face shape, desired length, and hair density, your hairdresser can also incorporate highlights, bangs, an A-line, or an undercut to suit your personality. Consider this your ultimate hairstyle change that’s surely flattering no matter your age and character.

This short cut is a stacked, slightly short inverted bob. It was created by hairstylist Sheridan Holyoak of Ogden, UT. “Get an undercut at the nape to eliminate cowlicks. You can wear it choppy, wavy or you can rock straight hair or curly hair, and the texture is still going to be visible,” says Holyoak.

When considering short stacked haircuts like this, make sure you find a stylist that is confident in cutting short hair, as that can make or break this hairstyle. Also, make sure you have time to style this cut. It is not a wash-and-go style.
