Stacked Bob For Curly Hair
This is a short stacked bob haircut with an asymmetrical shape. “Dry and wet cutting techniques were used to achieve this short hairstyle,” says salon owner and hairstylist Mandy Rogers of British Columbia, CA.
“When working with natural curl it’s really important to create a strong foundation to the cut while it is damp with low tension,” explains Rogers. “Use freehand texturizing and cutting techniques to enhance the natural shape of the curl. This was achieved using a straight and curved shear for the cut. Curved shears can work wonders when trying to manipulate the direction of a curl.”
The strong lines of the inverted bob combined with the disconnected curls create a beautiful shape. The asymmetry is so flattering and this cut looks great from every angle and can work on women of all ages.
“When it comes to face shape, this stacked bob hairstyle is fantastic on the majority. The one exception is the heart-shaped face. A lob is a better choice in that case,” she adds.
Gels, sea salt sprays, waxes, and wax sprays are more suited for the style. In short, this is a cut for a woman who has the time to style their hair for 30 min a day. If you take the time, it can be a super fun, sassy, and sophisticated style.
Short Stacked Bob with an Undercut
This short hair is a stacked bob cut that is a fun, edgy, but also stylish and professional style. It was created by barber and stylist Lorenzo DiBiase of Ohio.
“Our goal with this hair has been to slowly work our way shorter, to ease into an all-over shorter cut and possibly a full undercut bob in the future,” explains DiBiase. “We decided an asymmetrical short bob with an undercut in the back and right side.”
There was a lot of texture put into this stacked cut, to give the feeling of weightlessness. Starting with a traditional triangular shape, a more extreme angle was created to preserve length in the front.
DiBiase states, “having the right amount of hair is crucial for short stacked haircuts. This will not work well for women with super fine or very thin hair. But on the flip side, too much hair or natural texture can make this very difficult to achieve, which may also need a lot of work to style.”
A very short stacked bob cut for women with a round face shape is not recommended. This is because it would only create more roundness for them.
