Hairstylist Helen Thomson of Melbourne, AU finds short, curly stacked haircuts perfect for finer locks.

“This stacked bob offers fabulous shape and volume in the tresses,” says Thomson. “But for thick hair, the stack would only make the hair appear like a mushroom.”

Face structures and features are a massive factor in determining if the haircut works for you. Some short stacked curly bob haircuts aren’t ideal for round, square, or any smaller-shaped faces with double chins.

“Tresses cut to the jawline shortens the face shape unless you opt for a curly asymmetrical bob. It would open up one side of the face, creating an illusion of length,” Thomson explains.

Proper upkeep is paramount for textured hair. These beautiful curls need products that offer moisture without losing their bounce. Talk to your stylist for recommended brands that don’t weigh the hair down.
