What Is a Graduated Bob?

The graduated bob or inverted bob is very similar to the A-line bob but with stacked layers in the back. The amount of stacking can vary, but the layers follow the haircut’s angle and get longer towards the front. The front is slightly shorter under the chin than with the A-line. Victoria Beckham and Christina Aguilera have both sported stacked locks.
