A stacked bob is a classic haircut. It has layers in the back, stacked on top of each other to create fabulous volume, with strands cascading forward to create flattering face-framing pieces. But when you add a twist to it with an undercut—a shaved side or nape—it changes into something fun and edgy.
Here are 25 playful and exciting examples of a stacked bob with undercut to inspire you to spice up your look for the summer.
1. Wavy Bob With Shaved Side
A stacked bob works with all hair textures—straight, wavy or curly. This lovely wavy version has one side shaved, making it at the same time romantic and edgy.
2. Stacked Bob With Stripes
Shaving the sides will make your undercut much more obvious than the nape. If you want to make it extra special, try playing with decorations, even if it’s just with a simple line.
3. Short Stacked Undercut Bob
This undercut bob is more versatile than it seems—parting your hair in the middle will cover up the undercut and make you look more polished, while a side part turns your look edgy.
4. Hidden Undercut Stacked Bob
A hidden undercut can be your private secret, but it’s also a great way to take off the weight from the back of the head. If you have thick hair, a nape undercut can make your hair much more manageable and light.
5. Asymmetrical Stacked Bob With Undercut
If you want to really call attention to your undercut, an asymmetrical bob will provide the most contrast. With one side shaved and the other skimming the collarbone, this dramatic haircut won’t leave you unnoticed.
6. Soft Nape Undercut Bob
A stacked bob with undercut can go high in the back, or be more understated. You can get half of your head shaved, or add only a tiny undercut to create interest. This subtle shape is a cute addition to a softly rounded bob that reveals that things aren’t quite what they seem.
7. Stacked Bob With Shaved Swirls
Getting an undercut with a design will definitely make you want to wear your hair up to show it off—luckily, the layers of a stacked bob are enough to create a cute little ponytail that won’t obstruct the view.

15. Graduated Bob With Undercut
It’s usually recommended to avoid undercuts if you have thin hair, but you can go for it if you combine it with a stacked bob. Thanks to the volumizing layers, your hair will seem much thicker and having a part of it shaved won’t look unflattering.
