1. Classic Stacked Bob

For most women, when it comes to stacked haircuts, the classic bob is the obvious choice. And with short, choppy layers at the nape of the neck, this style is set firmly apart from any other bob looks. Over the years it’s become a favorite of fine-haired ladies, helping to add dimension and body to even the limpest of locks. To style, give your short layers some oomph by plumping up your mane with a texturizing product, like Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray. The formula will help add a flawless-looking texture to your hair.

Looking for a short cut that’s a bit edgier? Then you’ve got to check out the angled stacked haircut. To achieve this look, ask your stylist to incorporate some sharp, angular layers. This will add more interest to your style, not to mention helping define your facial features. Hey, girl supermodel cheekbones are only a snip away!

3. Inverted Pixie

Pixie crops are having a major moment. If you’re not sure you can pull it off, we recommend giving the inverted pixie a try, instead. This timeless style combines longer, more feminine layers at the crown of the head with micro-layers toward the nape for a softer feel.

4. Subtle Stack

In love with lobs (a.k.a long bobs)? As you can see from the image above, even adding in some layers that are ever so slightly shorter can give your mane a more polished effect. This stacked look also adds some dimension to your face in a very stylish yet subtle way.

5. Short Stacked Hair with Ombré

A pop of color is a fun way to add some style to short stacked hairstyles.

Feel like short stacked hairstyles are a bit too mature for you? Don’t forget that you can always try accentuating your layers using bursts of playful color, like the red ombré above! It’ll give your hairstyle a more exciting, youthful vibe, while still being just as practical.

If you’re tempted to add color to your stacked haircut this season, make sure to incorporate color protecting products into your hair care routine that also help keep your hairstyle smooth. We recommend TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo and Conditioner, as they help to keep your color-treated hair vibrant and frizz-free!
