There are few styles that can give your hair as much volume as a stacked hairstyle. This style, which is usually short or has a medium shoulder-length length, takes its name from the way the layers sit one above the other at the back of the head. Stacked haircuts are extremely versatile in the sense that they are suitable for all hair types. No wonder they have been favorites for so long. If you are looking for a great stacking style, the search ends here. Here we put together a list of the 30 best stacked hairstyles we have come across. But first, for all hobbyists out there, let’s look at how you get the look.
How to make stacked haircuts
The best thing about stacked hairstyles is that they are minimally styled. Here are simple steps to styling stacked hair.
You will need
- Hair styling mousse
- round brush
- Necking comb
- Take a palm full of mousse and work it through your wet hair.
- Continue to cut off the crown portion of your hair and blow-dry the lower layers.
- Smooth the bottom layers with a round brush until completely dry.
- Use your hair straightener to straighten the curls on the tips.
- Loosen the crown part. Bend and cock your hair down and start to blow-dry.
- Once your hair is about 70% dry, stand up again and dry with the round brush. This helps to smooth your hair while adding volume.
- Once they are dry, straighten the curls.
- Make a natural part and tease your hair in three inch long sections on both sides and on the back.
- Repeat teasing under each section.
- Hair spray the roots and allow to dry to maintain the volume.
- Take your round brush and lightly stroke the top layers of your hair to smooth things out.
