What is the difference between a stacked bob and an inverted bob?

Stacked bob haircuts are similar to an inverted bob with one exception. The stacked bob or graduated Bob builds weight in the neckline area. A much more accentuated look usually a short version of the A-line Inverted Bob.

A graduated bob with bangs is one of the classic hairstyles that will never go out of style.

The Inverted Bob is a one-length haircut shorter in the back and longer in the front. Both work best on straight hair but can be achieved on curly texture as well.

How do you style a Bob?

The best method of styling a bob is using a Denman brush and professional blow-dryer.

Section the hair in 4 quadrants and starting in the back, blow hair straight down at natural fall.

Continue up the head horizontally with a flat wrap motion.

For more volume, a round brush blow-dry can be used.

Although Bob comes in many variations, try styling it in many ways.
