You probably know what a bob haircut is, but did you know that there are a ton of different types of bobs? Take the inverted bob, for example. It’s different from the classic A-line bob and can have many different styles itself.
The inverted bob seems like a pretty simple haircut, but in fact, it is more complicated than that. An inverted bob haircut has stacked layers in the back and has a slight curve that extends to the front. It can also come in different lengths depending on your preference.
The most popular inverted bob haircut stops at the nape of the neck in a curved horseshoe shape. Essentially, the graduated bob and inverted bob are the same thing.

This bob has layers from the crown of the head to the neck stacked on top of each other, giving this haircut the name Stacked Bob.
