We love a good short haircut, but sometimes your run-of-the-mill bob ends up looking more matronly than magnificent. If you’re looking to go short this year but aren’t sure which cut is perfect for you, look no further than these stacked bobs. From super short to long and everything in between, we’re confident we’ve found the perfect stacked bob for you.

As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If you’ve been slaying a stacked bob for as long as you can remember and know it’s the best look for you, don’t bother looking for a new haircut. Instead, refresh your look with chic hair accessories.

Curly Stacked Bob

When searching for photos of stacked bobs, you’re often inundated with photos of women with stick-straight hair. It leaves many curly girls wondering if stacked bob cuts just aren’t for them.

Well, we’re here to remind you that curly ladies can not only slay literally any cut, but also make the stacked bobs look amazing. Whether you have tightly coiled curls or loose waves, a stacked bob is perfect for anyone who loves a structured cut with tons of volume.

Long Stacked Bob

A bob haircut is typically long enough to graze your ears, but never falls past your shoulders. If you love the look of a stacked bob but aren’t ready to get rid of your precious length, consider a long stacked bob.

Ask your stylist to keep the hair in the front long enough to just brush your shoulders and the back cropped to about the middle of your neck.

Shag cuts are one of the biggest trends of the year. Why not combine them with a classic cut that you already know slays?

Shag cuts are all about texture and killer bangs. To add this retro flare to your stacked bob, ask your stylist to cut thick bangs that graze your eyebrows with some longer pieces around the face. Your stylist will likely use a razor to add texture and movement to the rest of your hair.

Stacked Bob with Full Bangs

Stacked bobs are traditionally styled with side swept bangs, but just because it’s the traditional style doesn’t mean it’s the only option. If side swept bangs aren’t really your taste, ask your stylist to cut full bangs straight across your forehead. They should just graze your eyebrows.

A stacked bob is traditionally a fairly short haircut, but that doesn’t mean it can’t get even shorter. Have your stylist use clippers to cut your hair in the back very short (like a pixie) and keep the hair in the front just long enough to reach your ears.

Stacked Bob with Undercut

A stacked bob is almost like a reverse mullet, all business in the back and party up front. Who said the front should have all of the fun? Let the back of your head join the party and opt for an undercut.

Center Part Stacked Bob

The classic stacked bob is typically accompanied by a deep side part and side swept bangs. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to change up your look, consider swapping out your go-to side part for a center part. Parting your bangs down the middle instead of sweeping them to the side creates the perfect face-framing layers.

Stacked Bob with Feathered Bangs

If you have a classic stacked bob with side swept bangs, you probably have a love-hate relationship with your fringe. On the one hand, side-swept bangs have this uncanny ability to make you appear put together; on the other hand—your bangs are always in your face! If you’re looking for another stylish way to style your bangs, this blast from the past is the perfect inspiration. To achieve this look, flat iron your fringe up and away from your face.
