The right haircut is something that can quickly and easily change your whole look for the better. One of the best (and always stylish) haircuts to try is the stacked haircut, which is both chic and fashionable. Stacked haircuts can be super short or of medium length just touching the collarbone.
Charming Stacked Haircuts
The most essential element of getting a quality stacked cut is to ensure that the back section is cut to perfection. Since it is stacked in the back, the back view is the focal point of the look, so it must be done right. If you are still unfamiliar with the stack style, just think of a Bob that’s rounded at the back through gradual layering and commonly slightly angled toward the front.
The following pictures showcase a wide array of cute stacked cuts that suit a variety of hair types. So, if you’re looking to try this haircut out and need a bit of inspiration, these pics are here to do the job.
#1: Stacked Bob for Thin Hair
The back view of this A-line haircut shows why it works so well for fine hair. By opting for an angled and layered cut, you get a style that shows your strands are actually much thicker than you’ve thought they are.
#2: Sleek Stack
The major benefit of a stacked bob haircut is its rounded silhouette that looks flawless with straight hair. Angled to perfection and complimented with soft layers, this cut would look amazing on practically anyone.
#3: Blonde Stack with Deep Side Bang
In terms of long stacked haircuts, this one is top-notch! With bangs deeply parted and swooped to one side, bright blonde hair color and perfectly angled lob cut make a sexy hairstyle you’ll love to rock. This is how stacked haircuts should look.
#4: Strawberry Blonde Stack with Red Highlights
A stacked haircut comes in a variety of colors, and this blonde one with red highlights is guaranteed to garner loads of attention. This particular stack cut can be recommended for fine hair because due to its shorter length and layering, it creates the illusion of a thicker mane.
#5: Wavy Brown and Burgundy 2-in-1 Bob
Fabulous for curly hair and for thick hair alike, this medium, wavy cut is sexiness personified. There’s a shorter straight underlayer and a wavy and messy top layer, cut choppy and uneven to enhance the fullness of the shape. The brown and burgundy hair hues add spice to the cut.
#6: Chocolate and Caramel Bob with Bangs
Thanks to the power of the layered bob you don’t have to completely leave your emo days behind you. The asymmetrical cut gives it an extra edge, but to really play-up your punk-inspired vibe, opt for fiery highlights and dramatic, side-swept bangs with a deep part.
#7: Jet Black Stack with Layers
With a solid base color, let the stacked bob do all the talking. The black color gives it boldness while still maintaining a certain degree of understated allure. With wispy layers, you won’t have to resort to high-contrast highlights for added dimension.
#8: Pastel Ombre Style
This long stacked cut lends itself to being the ideal canvas for a girly ombre with a touch of edge. The colorful tresses bring new life to this iconic cut, catching a new hue hiding under every dramatic angle. You can go jet black, pink, and super light all in one look while still keeping it classy.
#9: Two-Tone Angled Stack
Like a grown-up strawberry shortcake, this layered bob is oh, so sweet. Platinum blonde is fiercely contrasted against fuchsia to create a look that brings color-blocking to your locks. A risk worth the payoff, this style will work no matter your preferred color combo.
#10: Platinum Blonde Bob
The beauty of stacked haircuts is in their power to accentuate the volume of even the thinnest strands. The layered back gives your hair a little extra oomph. To boost it even more, make friends with a good texturizer and a fine-tooth comb. Then, tease the roots of your hair for more body.
#11: Grey Wispy Inverted Cut
Go grey, on purpose and include some warm-toned highlights. We promise it will look cool. The ashen hues mixed throughout the wavy style will be just as chic with straight hair.
#12: Voluminous Medium-Length Bob
For a fuller effect, this hairstyle relies on added volume up top and on the sides instead of just the common stacked-in-back look of most bobs in these pictures. To achieve the sky-high height, try teasing the hair, throwing in some dry shampoo or even add a hair piece like a “bump it“. Remember those things? They are cheesy but they work.
#13: Sharp Angled Stack
This stacked haircut utilizes dramatic layers in the back with a straight cut nape and longer, angled front, making it great for women who love the look of a bob with the ease of a pixie cut. Ready to wash-and-go in the morning, you never have to worry about finding those forever-lost hair ties with this ‘do.
#14: Blonde Inverted Bob
One part sophisticated and one part sassy, this haircut will take you from a day behind the desk to a night on the town. The layered bob is always a versatile choice with low maintenance. Just add natural-hued highlights if you want to spice it up a bit.
#15: Short Blonde Stack
Curly or straightened, blonde or brunette, this face-framing cut will undeniably look cute on anyone who sports it. Although, it’s easier to style with a looser curl pattern and straight hair. But, if you don’t mind putting a little heat on your coils a couple of times a week, there is no reason it can’t work for you too.
#16: Sleek Brunette Bob
One trick to tame short stacked haircuts is to keep the ends curled under. If you have thicker or wavier hair, you know the struggle of it flaring out with short cuts. Avoid the undesirable triangle shape by working on the sections of your hair with a wide curling iron, pulling each one through the iron from root to tip, curling it only at the very bottom. This will give you just the right kind of volume.
#17: Wavy Burgundy Lob
One thing you want to avoid if you have any sort of curl pattern is a completely blunt cut. Your curls can be unpredictable, so you can’t be sure what your hair will look like post salon trip. Go for wispy layers and a medium length, to give you something to play around with. And why not add some fun color while you’re at it?
#18: Stacked Brunette with Caramel Balayage
Lots of stacked layers show off the body of the angled bob pictured here. To achieve this level of fullness, you will definitely need hairspray with a strong hold. Piecey caramel highlights also help boost volume, creating almost a reflective effect.
#19: Fiery Stacked Bob
If you want to go bold with your color (and by bold we mean electric), why not try an equally daring cut like a short stacked bob? It’s a sleek choice to pair with a vibrant hue without sacrificing your sense of style.
#20: Wispy Black Bob
Chic and casual, the pitch black hue gives a bold look to this short ‘do. The piecey layers convey it beautiful sway and movement. Probably the best part about this take on the stack is how effortless it is.
#21: Inverted Blonde Style
Chic and easy for the woman always on the go, this cut frames the face while keeping it super short around the back of the neck. It’s a fuss-free style that looks good without much maintenance—besides a quick brush in the morning. The dark nape undercut and blonde highlights enliven the look with super-natural dimension.
#22: Dimensional Dirty-Blonde Stack
A more textured take on stacked bob haircuts, this cut features chunky V-cut layers and dimensional balayage highlights. That means it will be anything but boring to wear.
#23: Inverted Platinum Blonde Bob
This blonde bombshell shows that a platinum hue can work with any skin tone as long as there’s a really good cut. We have listed many photos of swoon-worthy stacked bobs, but African American short hairstyles are often the most impressive ones. Don’t want to bleach your hair to get an eye-catching style? Don’t be afraid of wigs when you want to try out a new look.
#24: Sexy Red Bob
The shiny burgundy red looks almost metallic. It complements the sexiness that this edgy cut naturally exudes. Images like this one show that you don’t need waist-length locks to show off your femininity.
#25: Curly Brunette Stack
Fun and flirty, loose barrel curls are a popular choice of stacked hairstyles. They evoke a youthful vibe that is also sophisticated, making it a chic everyday style. The deep brown hue plays up the innocent feel, but it will look just as cute (or sexy!) with any color of the rainbow.
#26: Extreme Teased Stack
Not every stacked cut is steeply angled and sleek, as some feature an extreme teasing finish and almost straight-cut edges. Here, you have a stacked style that is heavily backcombed at the crown and cut bluntly across the bottom.
#27: Medium Brown Stack
There is not a lot of fuss or frills to this medium brown version of the stacked cut, that’s why it looks so polished. Carefully angled on each side, this classy A-line haircut also features a slightly off center part and cute flipped in edges.
#28: Two-Tone Short Shaggy Haircut
If you are a fan of an overly teased crown and a feathered finish, then you are sure going to like this half pixie, half stacked bob haircut. The bulk of the hair is blonde, while the nape is dark chocolate brown.
#29: Wavy Gray and Lavender Stack
The best stacked option for thick hair, this style is all about the texture and color. A good idea for salt and pepper hair to get a trendy, head-turning yet any-age-appropriate hair color.
#30: Mid-Length Bob
This angled medium-length brown cut is punctuated by the presence of well-placed layers throughout. The layers provide shape, movement and depth to the classy cut, which is cute and easy to style.
Medium and short stacked haircuts for curly hair or straight locks continue to be just as popular now as years ago, when they have been first introduced. One of the best things about them is that they look like a rather complicated style, but offer so much ease in terms of everyday styling. If these pictures aren’t enough to convince you, keep searching stacked cuts…we are sure you’ll find one that stacks high above the rest!
