The stacked bob is known for its rounded shape, which it gets from having graduated layers. They start long in the front and get shorter as they near the back of the head.
Bob can be worn with or without bangs and can be short or mid-length, all depending on the woman wearing it.
Because of the many ways it can be styled, it will never go out of style, so you can be confident you’ll be on-trend when you come out of the salon rocking this new look.
What Is a Stacked Bob?
The stacked bob first became popular in the sixties; thanks to its timeless charm, it remains fashionable today.
While a traditional bob is typically cut to the same length in the front and back, a stacked bob is angled such that the front is longer than the back.
The “stacked” part of the name refers to the way that the hair is cut in stacked layers at the back.
