Short Stacked Hairstyles

If you're looking for the hottest look, short stacked hairstyles are the way to go. This look is ultra chic-a modern hairstyle that takes the best of the bob and wedge but then adds its own unique twist to make it altogether distinct. Since short hairstyles continue to be cutting edge fashion, a short stacked hairstyle is one guaranteed to make waves.

Short Stacked Hair 101
What are short stacked hairstyles? A stacked cut is similar to a wedge, but the back is cut in graduated layers at very steep angles. They are the next level of the inverted look, the style that features long angled bangs in the front that are shorter in the back. When the back is stacked, it means there are multiple layers of super short hair that you can bump up with a little mousse or gel.

Create a Strong Style Foundation
If you want to give this trendy look a shot, you need to start with a great cut. Go into a salon that specializes in the latest short styles and be sure that you find a stylist with experience and comfort in graduated bobs or stacked cuts. Given how important the layers are in this cut, you need to find a stylist with experience in this type of style. Without that foundation in place, your attempts to style the look will prove less effective.

Style Tricks
The key to making short stacked hairstyles look great is to use a round brush with your blow dryer. Use the brush to curl the hair along the shape of your head. If you want to make the most of the layering, then simply work in your favorite gel or sticky hair paste and push those layers up and out, separating them as much as you can. If you went for the gold and had it cut super short in back, your layers will look like they are sticking straight out-or even sticking up. That's the look you want.

In the front of your hair, work that long angle toward your chin, with forward movement and your round brush. Keep the front smooth and sleek-the contrast with the back makes for a look full of interest and flair, drawing all eyes right to you.
