The Voluminous Stacked Bob
Get Ready for Your Stacked Bob
A stacked bob is simply layering the back of your hairstyle. The hair at your crown is shorter and the layers get gradually longer for the full the length of your hair.
Make sure you know what length you want for your layered bob. That decision sets the stage for your haircut. And be certain of the style too. There are a few variations on the stacked bob.
The Versatile Stacked Bob
A ‘U’ shaped cut is the ever-popular classic shape for the bob. You might try a blunt cut for a little variety. A classic stacked bob has longer hair at the nape. The inverted stacked bob has shorter hair at the nape with longer sides. Try an asymmetrical cut on the sides to give your style a little pop.
And a layered bob looks great with or without bangs. Keep your bangs long and sweep them to one side or tuck them behind your ear if you want to keep the length. Or go for the Cleopatra style bangs that are straight and about eyebrow length.
Style it Curly
Want even more volume? Get out those curling irons, rollers, and sock buns. Adding a little curl gives your stacked bob even more volume. Add some wispy romantic curls or a few charming ringlets. Plus adding a little product helps your hair curl too. Try some product specifically designed for curls. Spray it on and simply scrunch your hair.
If your hair is thin, highlights and carefully placed lowlights make your hair look more textured. Blondes can go with platinum or lighter shades of chocolate to get that look. Brunettes try a few highlights in copper or ash shades.
Maintaining You Stacked Bob
The layered bob is one of the easiest styles around. After shampooing and conditioning your hair, make sure the layers fall where you want them to. Let them air dry or blow them dry for more volume. Get a trim every 3 to 4 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. And if you have highlights or lowlights, use hair products that are specifically for colored hair. These products keep your color looking fresh.
