Transcript:How to Do a Curly Stacked Bob

Hi I'm Andrea Cameron and today I'm going to show you how to create a curly stacked bob hair style.

Hair Tools Needed for a Curly Stacked Bob

Before you get started you will need the following: clips, a comb, scissors,a razor or thinning sheers, a pick, product for curly hair, and a blowdryer with a diffuser attachment.

How to Cut the Angles for a Curly Stacked Bob

First start by parting the nape a few inches from the base of the hairline. Since the hair is curly you may want to leave the hair about an inch longer than the desired length because it will shrink up when it dries.

Cut at the base of the hairline in a straight line. Section the center portion of that chunk of hair and pull it out at a 45 degree angle and cut the hair.

Keep taking 1 inch sections of hair down and follow the same 45 degree angle until you get to the crown. Start on on of the side and make a parting about 1 inch above the ear parallel with the angle you want to achieve.

Next Choose the longest point you want the front piece of hair to be and cut a straight line from the bottom back section of hair to the desired front point.  Bring 1 inch sections down and follow the same line at the base.

After you've finished the length portion, you'll start parting the hair vertically and blending the layers to the back section of the haircut to create the angled look.  Repeat these steps on the other side.

How to Cut the Top of the Head for a Curly Stacked Bob

Find the natural part on the top of the head and blend the hair cut to your angled side cuts. At this point you may want to go through the hair cut with thinning shears to eliminate any extra bulk and this also helps reduce drying time.

Finally, use a product, like a creamy gel meant for curly hair and distribute it throughout the hair. Put the diffuser attachment on your blowdryer and start drying. Begin at the nape and work your way up, scrunching as you go.
