Whether you wear a short pixie, mid-length locks, a choppy bob, or just about any other type of hairstyle, you’ll find that cutting some stacked layers into the back will make a huge difference to your hair. Stacked hairstyles are some of the most popular around and it’s easy to see why. If you’re not quite sure what exactly stacked hair is, it’s simple; layers are gradually cut into the very back of the head, creating a rounded shape with a whole lot of extra body. This is the perfect way to add shape and height to your hair and look totally on trend while you’re doing so. So, what are you waiting for? Have a look at these 20 stacked hairstyles that you’re sure to fall in love with.
Feathered Blonde Bob
This short hair style adds depth and texture to hair in just about every way you could imagine. Two different lengths are going on at once, from that choppy, layered crown to the long, face framing strands. Then, of course, there are those stylish brown streaks throughout the hair.
Short and Sweet
If you needed convincing that short hairstyles could be some of the sweetest and most girly going, here is your proof. We absolutely love this chic shape which has been cut inwards at the nape of the neck and the red brown shade is glossy and glistening.
Here we have an amazing example of an A line bob. There is an expertly cut angle in the shape of the bob, which adds shape and body to even the finest of hairs. As if that wasn’t stylish enough, different shades of blonde have been blended into one another, creating a beautiful balayage effect.
Bettie bangs is the name given to super short, blunt bangs cut high up on the forehead. The style was named for 1940s pin up model Bettie Page, and this blunt bob is an ideal way to update this classic style.
The shape of this crop is sure to flatter just about any face shape. The high, stacked back and long, face framing strands at the front go perfectly together. As if that wasn’t enough, the streaks of purple add a rebellious, funky edge.
Only dare to wear this short hairstyle if you don’t mind being the centre of attention wherever you go. This multi-tonal red is about as bold and beautiful as it gets, and that stacked crop with sweeping side bangs is a real showstopper.
Extreme Graduated Bob
Unleash your inner rock star by trying out this striking hairstyle. There is a whole lot of shape going on here; from the teased, backcombed roots all the way down to the bluntly angled ends.
Perhaps sharp angles and extremely high crowns aren’t exactly your thing. If that’s the case, don’t be fooled into thinking that you can’t still rock an amazing stacked hairstyle. This wavy, graduated bob is cute and carefree. We especially love the cherry red balayage running through it.
The Lob (short for ‘long bob’) is one of the biggest hair trends around right now, and can be seen being worn by just about every style idol around. This is a stunning example of a voluminous, eye-catching lob. The hair has been parted deeply to one side with thick, sweeping bangs and that golden shade is mesmerizing- especially with slightly darkened roots.
Two Tone Pixie
Wondering how you can add drama and depth to your pixie crop? This wavy, stacked crop is an ideal example of how to do just that. Extra choppy layers have been cut into the back of the hair, adding some serious height. Also, the hair has been dyed in a fun two tone style, golden blonde on top and chocolate brown below.
This haircut manages to pull off a seriously dramatic A line angle in a surprisingly subtle, understated style. The sandy brown shade has been brightened by just a touch of golden balayage, focused around the long front of the bob to lift and frame the face.
Black and Gold
A chin length, stacked bob with sweeping bangs is beautifully flattering and will suit almost every girl. However, if you want to put your own unique spin on this classic cut, try adding bold streaks of gold through your black locks.
Chocolate Angled Bob
The shape of this extremely angled, stacked bob is about as trendy as it gets. A haircut like this one looks best when worn in a sleek, poker straight style and teamed with a glossy color, such as this rich chocolate brown.
Two Tone Bob
If we could sum this hairstyle up in one word it would be: wow. The two different tones in the stacked bob are warm enough to complement each other, but different enough to show dramatic contrast.
Strawberry Blonde Stack
The colors in this softly stacked bob will work perfectly with the warm sunshine this summer. The cut is high and layered, giving even thin locks the illusion of being thick and full bodied.
Shimmering silver is one of the coolest hair trends around at the moment. These silvery curls have a soft tint of pastel lavender, making the color look even more stunning.
The sweet shade of cinnamon in this softly stacked bob will look wonderful on girls with warm skin tones. In addition to being sleek and chic, the length of this bob is incredibly easy to style.
So you’ve got the perfect, angled bob with a neatly stacked back, but you’re worried that your color is letting you down? If your natural shade is too dull or flat for such a stylish silhouette, all you have to do is add a touch of blonde ombre.
Graduated Bob with Full Bangs
This hairstyle is perfect for girls who want to experiment with short hair, but aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to their long, feminine locks yet. The combination of light and dark brown will look stunning on all skin types.
There are many different shades in this short, stacked bob. Auburn, chestnut brown, ash blonde and golden blonde all work together to create warmth and depth.
