A stacked bob with bangs is a shorter bob with graduated layers at the back to create volume. It’s a short haircut that suits different fringe types to match any face shape. Unlike a layered bob, a stacked bob has more volume in the back and is cut at a sharper angle.
Mona Lee Wilson, a hairstylist from New Mexico, says the best thing about a bob that’s stacked is you can distribute the weight and length to fit most face shapes.
Wilson suggests visiting the salon every 4-5 weeks. “The minute a precision haircut grows out, it’s unflattering. Maintain the style by getting it frequently cut to your face shape, including the bangs.”
For styling, sea salt spray and a smoothing balm are great choices, depending on the hair texture. Sea salt spray is for fine to medium hair types. It adds a boost to the roots and thickens up the strands on the ends. A smoothing balm is for medium or thicker hair types. It helps control frizz, adds shine, and gives a sleek finish.
To ensure a stacked bob haircut can work for you, ask your stylist these questions:
- Do I have the hair type to support this style?
- What type of maintenance should I expect, especially for the fringe?
- What types of products and stylers should I invest in?

She continues, “think about the right fringe for your specific hairline. Here, I’ve gone with full bangs for a youthful vibe. For a sleeker look, go with side-swept bangs or try curtain bangs for a cooler take on the cut.”
For fine hair, Willmann says to be careful with the amount of layering to keep as much thickness as possible. She notes, “I styled my girl with a 2″ round brush but would sometimes opt for a wide paddle brush for smoothness.”
