If the cut is right, a stacked bob will practically style itself. A quick blow-dry and touch-up will have you steppin' out in style in less time than it takes to find the mate to that strappy sandal -- look under the bed. Whether you like to wear it curly and flirty or sleek and sophisticated, the stacked bob will prove to be one of the easiest styles that you've ever worn.


Work a handful of mousse through your freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. Flip your head over and dry it with a blow-dryer, aiming the heat directly at your roots until they're completely dry. While you're at it, scrunch curl into the ends of your hair if you are going to wear it curly. If you're going for sleek, ignore the ends for now.


Don't dry the ends all the way in this position. Once the roots are dry, flip your hair back over and part it where you want it. For a curly look, keep scrunching the ends until they're dry. For a straight look, get out your round brush and start drying the ends under. Hold your hair out from your head with the ends wrapped around the round brush to direct your hair where you want it. Dry it all the way.


Touch up stubborn spots with a flatiron or curling iron depending on the look you're going for. Finger style the ends of your hair to see if they're behaving nicely.


Lift up a section of hair in your crown and tease the underside just a bit. To tease, push the teeth of a teasing comb into the underside of the section. Push the comb down toward the scalp, creating a cushion of hair. Let the section fall and make sure you can't see the tease through the top. Add more hair if you need to.


Finger style and finish off with medium-hold finishing spray.
