Default What is this haircut called?

I'm not very skilled at computers so I hope this works! http://i42.tinypic.com/2qyr6.jpg I don't have a way to get a good clear picture of this to my hairdresser so I must describe it the best I can. Would you call it a layered bob or stacked bob? It's not really a Posh bob. How do you think it would look growing out a haircut liket this? I'm stuck b/w cutting my hair and growing it out. I think I'll eventually grow it but the ends definitely are not in good shape....

What is the name of this style or how would you describe it and do you think it would look good with someone who has thick wavy hair? I usually straighten my hair but at this new length, it may be more difficult. Thank you.

I would call this a layered bob, but I'm not sure. It is really, really cute!! I would love to have that look. I would describe it as chin length and long layers. I think it would look good with thick, wavy hair, but I would probably straighten it with a flatiron.

Good luck!!

It's not an inverted bob. Those are shorter in back and the shorter, layered area is called a "stack."

You should "print" that picture and tell your stylist that you want a bob that's angled to the back.

I don't think that cut would work on someone with "thick" wavy hair unless it gets thinned out A LOT and sheared. Why not try to find a style that is more suited to flaunt your waves instead of fighting your natural texture?

Ha ha I don't know what an "app" is. I'm serious. I have a standard pc - not even a flat screen. My cat knocked my new flat screen over and broke it since she was used to sitting a big monitor. I could never deal with iphones and ipads and whatever else... I don't use my cell phone as it is. I think I'm the only relatively young person (30) that doesn't get into all of that technology.

My printer is out of ink or I'd print it though it's only black and white and didn't do a good job when I printed out a hair pic before. There is one salon I go to but I don't have a hairdresser. I cut my own hair so it's been years since I've gone to a salon. I'll probably keep it one length or if I go, get the stacked (Posh) bob. I usually do a better job on my hair than salons because they miss pieces.

Do you think a stacked bob would be easier with think hair than that layered style? It kind of turned out like that when I did salon cuts b/c one thing I liked is how they always undercutted it. Tho the shorter in back it is the harder it was to straighten it, I remember.

My hair is thick but it's not full. I'll get a picture up later on when I have more time to show you what I mean. In other words, I don't have a lot of hair. I used to have much fuller hair in my teens. It looked awkward when I cut it above shoulder length. At this point, I can wear short styles easily granted I don't go above chin length. Though, I've never done layers. I can get a poofy look when there is high humidity that is almost like dealing with a different head of hair. That's why I hesitate to do layers - we rarely have high humidity here but lately it's been like living in a swamp! I go back and forth on what length I want on a daily basis! Long hair is easier in a way, but I love the look of short hair so much.
