21 Short, Stacked Pixie Bob Haircuts for a Cute and Sassy Look

A pixie short stacked bob is a modern haircut between a very short crop and a neck-length bob. Layers are cut short in the back to create a fuller and voluminous effect. If you love versatile chop that’s easy to maintain, read on!

Stylist Chloe Anan of Saint Augustine, FL, reveals the perks of this short-length cut. “The hair amount is drastically reduced, and the cut shows an integral lived-in look,” says Anan.

It’s a plus that there are countless ways to wear a pixie bob that’s stacked. You can go for bangs, face frames, undercuts, asymmetrical ends, and many more options.

“Wear what makes you feel good regardless of your age. Match it with your energy and personality,” says Anan.

Ensure your cut complements your hair texture, density, and bone structure. Some pixies that hug closely to the head may be hard to replicate. Pick what’s conducive to your locks.

Anan warns other stylists not to leave extra bulk around the parietal ridge. “A heavier weight removal in that area can contribute to a more seamless grow-out.”

Another factor is the type of upkeep required for this stacked bob cut. Salon visits every 4-6 weeks are typical, based on how fast your tresses grow.

An edgy chop like this one is worth trying. Here are pictures of the trendiest short, stacked pixie bob haircuts for your inspiration!


#1: Brunette Stacked Pixie Bob for Straight Hair

The brunette stack pixie bob is ideal for straight hair. If you love extra volume in the crown, you might want a haircut that crosses a pixie and a bob cut. This cut suits people with medium to thick hair who aspire to add some texture and body to their hairstyle. It can be easily styled with a flat iron to smooth the hair around the face and add volume to the root in the crown area. Finish the styling by using hairspray to lock the look in.

#2 Short Stacked Bob + Pixie Hairstyle

This short stacked pixie bob combines the volume of stacked layers with the easy maintenance of a tapered nape. Ideal for straight, medium to thick hair, it features side-swept bangs that frame the face beautifully. The subtle highlights add dimension, making it a chic option for a modern, feminine look. Perfect for those seeking a stylish cut with volume and texture.

#3 Stacked Shaggy Pixie Bob with Long Bangs

A haircut great for fine hair is a shaggy pixie bob. These cuts are generally great for finer hair textures, but adding in the additional shagginess and heavy texture gives the movement and height needed to complete this look.

#4: Stacked and Angled Pixie Bob for Thin Hair

Any haircut with an angle is perfect for thin hair requiring a major lift. Ask your stylist for stacked layers between the occipital bone and the crown, with an inverted angle beginning at the baseline of the layers in the back. With short cuts for thin hair, an angle gives a lot of shape and helps to keep some length for those who still want some versatility when styling. The stacked layers add huge lift and volume to the crown.

#5: Super Short Stacked Curly Bob

A hairstyle worth considering is a super short stacked curly bob. Coily hair works great with bob cuts. If you can choose, pick the short style since it needs less product and effort. For styling, you can wash and go, use hair creams, gels, lotions, or a diffuser. You also have the option to blow your hair straight. My favorite professional products for curly hair are Hairstory and Innersense.

#6: Stacked Undercut Pixie Bob

Try considering a stacked undercut pixie bob as your next hairstyle. If you have thick hair and are looking for new styles, a pixie could be a great option. Pixie cuts are short layered hairstyles. An undercut in a pixie cut can remove a lot of weight from the hair, adding texture throughout. Ask your stylist to use a razor and texture shears to add movement to your thick hair.

#7: Stacked Blonde Bixie with Dark Nape

A blonde bixie with dark nape is a gorgeous soft two-toned transition. Adding lightness to the top of your style or at the crown is a great way to draw the eye up! We often think about haircuts as a way to add definition to your face, but highlights can be another way. I love using color placement to help bring out certain qualities.

#8: Short Tapered Pixie Bob

This hybrid of a bob and a pixie is one of the easiest haircuts and styles to wear. The layers in this shape enable you to tousle, tuck behind the ear, blow smooth, or even curl. Your best bet is to blow dry straight with a metal barrel round brush and decide what to add.

#9: Stacked Asymmetrical Pixie Bob

Shorter layers in an asymmetrical pixie bob create height and volume in the crown. Keeping those short layers light and textured gives these styles that classic feminine look.

#10: Feathered Stacked Pixie Bob for Fine Hair

A feathered pixie bob might be just the change you need. If you need volume, the stacked back and layers will lighten up the weight of your hair. Have your stylist cut into your layers if you need an extra boost, especially on a heavy hair texture.

#12: Pixie Bob Haircut with Stacked Layers

A short style that shows off dimensional color, artificial or natural, is a pixie bob haircut with stacked layers. The difference in length and weight in the crown accentuates highlights and lowlights.

#13: Androgynous Pixie Bob That’s Stacked

The neckline of short hairstyles can make a huge difference in the overall appearance of the haircut. With an androgynous pixie bob, a sharper and heavier weight line at the nape can give a more “masculine” look rather than a softer line that is associated with a feminine cut.

#14: Stacked Pixie Bobbed Hair

The longer version of stacked pixie bobbed hair keeps the same classic shape, but the difference is in the layering. Longer layers all around will leave more length in the crown and nape. This pixie bob bearing a short stack also has a less dramatic graduation.

#15: Pixie + Short Stacked Bob

An extreme diagonal angle with a sharp weight line creates a dramatic pixie + shorter stacked bob style. Precision cuts create a high fashion style.

#16: Wavy Short Edgy Pixie Bob

An easy and low-maintenance way to add texture to your short edgy pixie bob is by adding a wave with a small curling iron or flat iron. Heat protection keeps your hair healthy and helps lock in your style. With this style, a texturing hairspray will add a messy edge and ensure a stronghold that lasts all day.

#17: Very Short Stacked Pixie Bob

A faded perimeter will help make salon visits less frequent. The neckline and the short-stacked design of a pixie bob are very important. Fading or tapering will make the growth so much easier. With all short haircuts, the back always seems to grow faster and can because of an unwanted mullet or “ducktail” look; adding this detail will help with that.

#18: Stacked and Inverted Pixie Bob

A stacked and inverted pixie bob is a soft a-line pixie cut. To get this cut, ask your hair stylist for an asymmetrical short style. If you need help deciding between a stacked pixie cut and a layered bob, this is the answer.
