15 Super-Hot Short, Stacked Bob Haircuts

Short stacked bob haircut ideas

A short, stacked bob is a women’s haircut that’s cut shorter and in an angle, making the front longer and the back shorter and rounded with layers. This way, a stacked cut allows the hair to pack extra volume even when it’s cut super short by making the angles more striking!

Look up to fashion stars Victoria Beckham, Jenny McCarthy, Evan Rachel Wood, and Halle Berry and how they pulled off a short bob that’s stacked and made it timeless! What’s exciting is that their stylish stacked bobs can now be easily duplicated in a variety of style.

Color and haircut specialist Daisy Villa from San Diego, California wows her clients with how she brings out the best version of their short hair regardless of their hair types – curly, straight, and wavy – the results are unfailingly super chic and cute!

Based on your face shape, desired length, and hair density, your hairdresser can also incorporate highlights, bangs, an A-line, or an undercut to suit your personality. Consider this your ultimate hairstyle change that’s surely flattering no matter your age and character. I will say this though, stacked bobs are perfect short haircuts for women over 60!

How would you describe this?

This short, stacked bob is a customized, layered look on a classic bob.

Bobs are typically created to fall into place, like this cut. There’s a bit of an undercut around the nape of the neck, and the idea is the hair will naturally bevel under and hug the head and hairline beautifully.

What’s your best advice?

This is a great short stack style for women who love to style their hair! It’s also great for women who love volume and height at the crown. Your best tools for this short bob with bangs would be a round brush and a little bit of sea salt spray right at the root!

How would you describe this?

It’s a very textured, layered, stacked bob on short hair. If you have a lot of hair and absolutely no time to style it every day, pick a short wavy cut that is effortless. At the same time, it’s very versatile so that it can fit any occasion if styled a certain way.

What’s your best advice?

When it comes to stacked haircuts, go for it! It’s on-trend at the moment and suits almost every face shape.

This cut is so versatile and easy to wear and style. It is perfect for ladies with thick hair and medium to fine hair because it takes lots of the weight out giving texture (thick), creating volume, body, and movement (medium to fine).

It can be styled smooth with a dryer and round brush, waved with wands, thongs or straighteners and even left to air dry. If using any hot tools, ladies, always use a good heat protector – for example, Nectar or Extentioniste Thermique by Kerastase.

Stacked with Bangs

How would you describe this?

This is a lower-maintenance, short stacked bob with bangs for women wanting a bob haircut but not wanting to come in every 6-8 weeks. Add in a side-swept bang for some interest!

What’s your best advice?

Use a little Pureology Shine Bright Taming serum through ends before round-brushing the hair. If you have finer hair, it will lay sleek and grow out well for months. But if you like to keep it at this length, every 6-8 weeks would be necessary time for a trim and shape.

There’s a lot of versatility in a bob cut, especially a swing bob because the hair coming in around the jaw and neckline lends to shaping all face shapes well.

Angled Short Stacked Bob

How would you describe this?

This is a razored pixie bob that’s stacked. The razor allows incredible movement in what can typically be a very static and solid cut. The nape area is cut very short but left a little longer along the perimeter to create softness. Then the stack gets gradually longer to create fullness in the crown. The front is over-directed backward at a 45-degree angle to preserve length in the front and give that cool, short angled bob shape.

This kind of stacked haircut is very versatile when it comes to styling. It can be worn smooth and sleek for a polished and professional style or messy and textured for a fun, edgy vibe.

For color, there’s a soft balayage to give a little dimension and highlight the lines of the cut. The longest pieces in the front really showcase the ombre effect from the balayage.

What’s your best advice?

Pay attention to your hair texture before committing to the style. If you have naturally straight, fine hair, styling is a breeze. For women with this hair type, it can easily be a wash-and-go style or be lightly blow-dried with a paddle brush for some volume. For women with natural curl or frizz, there’s a lot more styling involved with short stacked hairstyles.

Stacked Bob For Curly Hair

Q&A with style creator, Mandy Rogers
Owner / Hairstylist @ Hunt & Gather Hair Co. in British Columbia, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a short stacked bob haircut with an asymmetrical shape. Dry and wet cutting techniques were used to achieve this short hairstyle. When working with natural curl it’s really important to create a strong foundation to the cut while it is damp with low tension. 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.

What’s your best advice?

It’s not wash-and-wear. A lot of women have the impression that bobs and short hair are easy and fast. This isn’t necessarily always the case, especially when dealing with natural curl and its unpredictability.

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.

Gels, sea salt sprays, waxes, and wax sprays are more suited for the style. In short, this is a cut for an 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

Barber / Stylist @ Ladies & Gentlemen Salon in Lyndhurst, OH


How would you describe this?

This short hair is a stacked bob cut that is a fun, edgy, but also stylish and professional style. 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. 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 the weightlessness. Starting with a traditional triangular shape, a more extreme angle was created to preserve length in the front.

The great thing about this cut is that it’s a breeze to style. The main focus when it comes to that is getting a lift on the crown to give it that full shape. Round brushing is key for this.

What’s your best advice?

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 round face shape is not recommended. This is because it would only create more roundness for them. With just some texture spray and a blow dryer, this is easy to style at home. If round brushing is too much of a chore,  simply flip your hair upside down, and go crazy and to get the volume in back. Focus on the root area and direct forward, then brush it back after to smooth it down and top it off with a little hairspray.
