How Do You Style A Stacked Bob?
If you still need reasons for falling in love with a stacked bob, here’s another one. It offers you a plethora of styling options. Depending on your mood, personal preference and time available, you can style it curly or straight.
A wavy stacked bob doesn’t require much effort. After showering your hair with a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, blot it with a towel or a cotton T-shirt. Apply a special curling spray and leave your locks simply air dry. Afterward, tousle your waves with fingers.
Inversely, a straight stacked bob does imply a bit of styling. Wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that give a smoothing effect. Use a hair serum that prevents frizziness before blow drying the hair with the help of a round brush. To complete the style, spritz the bob with a mist for satin effect.
