1. Because they’re made for ladies who crave volume

Tired of being personally victimised by your fine strands? Instead of suffering in silence, boost your self-confidence (and your mane game!) by getting a stacked bob haircut.

With seamless and short choppy layers at the nape of the neck, this stacked style is practically made for fine-haired gals. Why? Because it helps add dimension, depth and body to limp locks, making your mane look more voluminous. Bye-bye flat hair! Credit: @headrushdesigns

Editor’s tip: What’s the secret behind most stacked bob haircuts? Texturising spray, ladies!

So, you really can’t go wrong with investing in the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray, as it’ll help enhance your stacked layers and give your mane a messy, Cali-girl vibe.

Editor’s tip: Straight stacked bob haircuts, whether natural or the result of heated styling, take serious work to achieve.

So, make sure you’ve got a heat protecting primer spray, like the TRESemmé Biotin + Repair 7 Primer Sprayin your beauty arsenal to keep your locks looking and feeling their best.

5. And with curly hair, too!

Think having natural curls means you can’t get in on the stacked bob hair trend? Well, this curly-haired queen is here to remind that you totally can.

If you’re dealing with triangle hair (a common struggle ladies with bouncy coils deal with!), it’s usually because your hair is one length, with no angles or shape. The solution? A stacked bob haircut, which will give you shape and lighten the weight of your thick curls! Credit: @meucabelocurto
