If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that everything old is new again—and that’s especially the case when it comes to certain beauty trends. Take the bob haircut, for example. This short hairstyle first became popular in the early 1900s, then became a huge hit again in the 1960s (thanks to the supermodels of the day), and is now back in favor once more. These days, though, there are plenty of fresh new ways to wear a bob haircut (in fact, here's How to Rock an Asymmetrical Bob). One of our favorite versions of the bob is the stacked bob. Keep reading to learn all about the stacked bob, how to get one that flatters your hair type, and how to style it for an on-trend look.
In case you need a refresher, the traditional bob haircut is one that is cropped at jaw level. Quite simply, a stacked bob is a bob that is stacked in the back. What that really means: With this bob haircut, your hair is angled and longer in the front and shorter and rounded at the back with gradual layers for a textured, voluminous finish. Sounds pretty, doesn’t it? We certainly think so!
Just about anyone can wear a stacked bob and have it look great—it’s all about finding the right version of this hairstyle trend for your hair type and texture. Stacked bobs work particularly well for those with thin hair, since they can help add volume thanks to the cut being A-line and featuring layers. That being said, having curly hair doesn’t mean you can’t sport a stacked bob—with the right layering technique, you can absolutely pull off this haircut without having it make your hair look too poufy. Talk to your stylist about what you want out of a stacked bob so that you leave the salon happy. Make sure to bring inspiration photos with you so that your stylist has a good sense of what you want your stacked bob to look like.
One of the reasons why we love the stacked bob so much is that there are a variety of ways to style it, from smooth and sleek to carefree and wavy. Keep reading for tips on creating both looks, depending on your preference. A stacked bob is versatile, so you can wear it smooth one day and curly the next. It’s all about how you’re feeling! A straight, sleek look requires more work, since you’ll have to blow-dry your hair, while a beachy stacked bob is easily achievable since you can just let your hair air dry to get the look. Below, we share the products you need for both stacked bob styles.
If you want to wear your stacked bob smooth and sleek…start with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Conditioner, in the shower. Then, apply a frizz-fighting hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum, and blow-dry your hair smooth with a round brush. Finish with a generous mist of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray.
If you want to wear your stacked bob carefree and wavy…hop into the shower and wash your hair with the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Hydra Charge Conditioner. Once you’re done with that, blot your hair dry with a cotton T-shirt, then spritz your damp hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Let your hair air dry, and then rake your fingers through your hair to tousle your waves.
