Amelia Spurlock 1 month ago Reply Does anyone know a stylist that can knows how to cut a good bob of ANY kind in the Winston Salem area of North Carolina? I am desperate! I got a wonderful cut at a salon in upstate NY a year or so ago but since I’ve been home no one here has a clue. I’ve had 3 awful cuts since. HELP! Salsa 4 months ago Reply Still not good with knowing what the inverted bob is🤓 Rickie Broadfoot 9 months ago Reply Your explanation is wonderful. When I talk to my stylist I know exactly what I want but didn’t know if it was stacked or beveled. The above style is exactly what I’ve been asking for. I’m sure my hair is not the same texture and won’t look exactly like this one but after I get it cut with this example at least I will know if it’s right for me or not. Hair grows back! Erin 10 months ago Reply How crazy the first picture is from Rivendell Hair in Arington Washington (no longer open) and the hair cut was done by me!

Michelle 7 months ago Reply I’m from the Arlington /Darrington area 🙂 Sonia 1 year ago Reply Bobs are hard to maintain I’d go with a straight across bob on the longer side grazing your shoulders . keep the layers long if any. Mine keeps growing out and i have to get shape ups often im tryin to grow out the layers now and went for a trim and they layered it all up again. I am mad. Jay 1 year ago Reply I m a guy who loves fem haircuts. Looking for a fem stacked graduated bob. The more fem the better. Savygal 1 year ago Reply Yes, I believe they are the same. I luv the undercut bob. Every time I go to the stylist, she wants to give me a “stack” because “it is more modern”. I think the truth of the matter is an undercut bob requires skilled precision, which not all stylists have. Jayla 2 years ago Reply Aren’t asymmetrical and inverted bob haircuts similar? Meag 2 years ago Reply Thank you so much, I love this hair style. I’m thinking about trying hair style asymmetrical bob. Now I am thinking stay with my natural color or try something new. I was inspired with some good photos. I’m planning to choose red color for my heir… or not))) Damion 2 years ago Reply However, for those that can, short hair is stunning. A large decorative clip, a flower, or other hair accessory can then be added. Its all natural, we ccan use makeup like eyeliner and mascara only tto enhance our natural beauty but for the most part nafural beautty is all about using what God gave us. Barbarina 2 years ago Reply Would a layered Bob look right on someone with slightly curly/wavy hair? My hair is dry and so I put oil in it to help with the frizz. But soon I’ll be having surgery and will be layed up for two months and would like something that won’t be too difficult to handle. Hollee Wood 2 years ago Reply I think that would looks really cute! It depends on what kind of look you are going for but I would recommend keeping the layers on the longer side. Hope it helps janis 2 years ago Reply Nobody knows what i mean either! They all waot to cut it too short on top and bangs too short, and endr up like an old women’s cut. Vic 2 years ago Reply I have the same problem! I recently moved and have had three awful hair cuts in a row. None of them know how to do any type of bob cut, apparently. But they SAY they do. Don’t they teach that in beauty school??? ballmom 2 months ago Reply The best graduated bob that was stacked for me was my old stylist that moved away from the area. Now trying to find another who I like. Got mine cut 2xs now. I will be going to another lady and making sure I tell her graduated bob. Charly 2 years ago Reply Thank you for explaining this so well. I have always known what I wanted and have tried to explain it to the gal who cuts my hair and it comes out wrong. So now I am trying to grow my hair out again and know exactly what to ask for next time! piyu28 3 years ago Reply Thankyou so much for the information. Last time I told my hairdresser for A-bob(angled bob) .he just messed up and ended up giving me assymetrical one.you are right, it does looks ugly.this time I am going to make him read this article ? Ruth gibson 3 years ago Reply Why is the inverted bob referred to as inverted? It doesn’t all go forward, so why called Inverted? Marilyn 3 years ago Reply Sorry to say there are hairdressers out there that do not know the difference between a stack, graduation and the original A line. You did a great job of describing the difference. Roxanne 2 years ago Reply I SO AGREE! I want to get my hair cut like Miss Fisher in Miss Fisher Mysteries, and I don’t know how to describe it. I’m searching for photos on the web so I can tell them what I want. I have long hair and want to get it right the first time – PLUS I have curly hair (easily straightens though). So this article was very timely! aparna 3 years ago Reply what is the name of the haircut with with short hair on one side and long hair on the other side? Hollee Wood 3 years ago Reply Asymmetrical bob? Meagan May Shannon 3 years ago Reply What’s a filled Bob then? Hollee Wood 3 years ago Reply I have never heard that term! I would imagine “filled” means the same thing as stacked… Maybe? Marilyn 3 years ago Reply Filled would mean a bob that is non-layered or solid. Tabatha 3 years ago Reply Thank you so much, i love this hair style and I’ve had it before but last time this chick had no idea what i wanted. I explained long in front, stacked in the back. I ended up with the stack in the back and butched in the front, shorter than chin length, so i have not had my hair cut since but now that I have this info I am going for it again! Thanks again. Angie Wallace 3 years ago Reply what is the name of the shorter haircut where it is shaped into a “V” at back and goes into a point at sides? Vicki 3 years ago Reply What’s difference between layered and stacked? Hollee Wood 3 years ago Reply That is a really good question! Stacked basically means layered but they are really short layers that are shaped with the haircut so they “stack up” higher. The more stacked the layers are, the higher up they will go.
