Want to switch up your haircut but don’t know where to start? The V-shape hair cut is one option you should definitely consider, seeing as it's one of the most popular haircuts at the moment. Of course, you might not be familiar with hair terms like V-cut hair. You know to ask your stylist for layers, but you've never thought to specify a shape—or a letter—for your cut. Lucky for you, we’re here to break down everything you need to know about this layered haircut, including what a V haircut is and what hair styling products will complement this alphabet-inspired ‘do best.
Simply put, a V-shape haircut involves lots of layers so that the ends of your hair form a “V” shaped point. Pretty self-explanatory, right? This haircut gives you a wide range of options for how your hair will look in the end because it’s flattering on all hair lengths—whether you want to rock a long or short hairstyle. The heavily layered cut will also give your locks lots of dimension, depth, and movement.
When it comes to styling a V-shaped haircut, the world is your oyster. Any hairstyle that accentuates the many layers the cut adds to your mane will be a winner. Here are some of our favorite hairstyles for a V-cut.
Why not highlight your layers by adding some curl to your mane? Before reaching for your curling iron, use a heat protectant like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray. Then, use a wide-barrel curling iron to create full, loose waves throughout your hair. Finish the look by spraying your hair with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray to keep your waves in place all day long.
Want to skip the heat? You can totally opt for gorgeous heat-free waves. Simply spray a wave spray throughout towel-dried hair before putting your hair into one or two braids. Allow your hair to air dry before taking out your braids to reveal effortless, loose waves!
Sleek, straight locks are an equally stunning way to show off your V-shaped haircut. In fact, straight hair may be the most flattering style for this cut since it accentuates the “V” point at the ends. First, spray a heat protectant like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray onto your hair. This spray offers 450-degree heat protection while calming frizz, sealing in shine, blocking humidity, and conditioning your strands. Once your heat protectant is applied, straighten away!
For an easy, quick, and trendy hairstyle, bed-head is a great option. This piece-y style will define the many layers of your haircut while maintaining a carefree, low-maintenance ‘do. Rub a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty between the palms of your hands before working it through your hair. Focus on applying the product to the ends of your layers to create texture and thickness. Add more product as desired.
Who says your hairstyle has to involve hair styling products? This hairstyle is all about amping up the color and is achieved with the help of a temporary hair color product. To get the look, choose your favorite color—or colors—from the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray line. Spritz the spray throughout the ends of your hair to accentuate the V-shape cut while also adding fun, temporary color to your mane.
Don't worry if you can't commit to a bold color long-term—the colorful spray will wash out after just one shampoo. Not sure what color to try? Check out our article, 7 Rainbow Hair Color Ideas for Your Most Magnificent Mane, for some colorful hair inspiration.
