While straight and blunt bobs have been trending, the stacked bob is rebirthing, and we have stacked up some stunning and inspiring ideas to help you choose your next best haircut!

Final Thoughts

Stacked full of inspiration right! Well, you can have peace in knowing that whatever stacked bob you choose to rock next, you will most likely love it! Here are a few last thoughts to contemplate before making your final choice.

  • The texture of your hair can really influence the type of bob you choose. Let your stylist assess and recommend something that is suitable for your hair texture.
  • Consider your schedule and how much effort you are able to put into your locks daily. You can enjoy sleek and polished or disheveled and wavy, but both will require some extra effort.
  • A shape like a stacked bob may require routine visits to your salon to maintain the shape and keep it looking fresh and on point. In saying that though, if you decide to grow it out, it’s not such a painful process and grows out relatively well.

Get out of your comfort zone a bit! Go for a steeper angle or shorter layers, or have fun with something asymmetrical. The joy of this cut is that you can make a small change every time and you can have a totally new look.
