23 Best ‘V’ Shaped Haircut Ideas & How to Get Them

Blunt cuts are not the only choice for mid-length hairstyles. V-Shape haircuts give a variety of lengths to women’s hair so that the back is longer than the front.

A V cut is a great option for women who want their hair to frame their face at the front, but who still want a lot of lengths. Our list will show off some perfect ‘V’ shaped haircut ideas for women.

 

Who Should Try A ‘V’ Shape Haircut?

Although any woman can choose a v-shaped hairstyle, this cut actually looks better on some types of hair than it looks on other hair types. For example, soft and sleek hair helps to show off the v cut in a better way.

Women who have naturally thicker hair may want to use more layering techniques to make the shape of the cut look better too. Women with curls can choose a V shape, but it looks better with big curls than with kinky curls.

FAQs

Are a V-cut and a layered haircut similar?

Most V-shaped haircuts have layers, but they aren’t looking at the same part of your haircut.

It refers to the shape of the back of the hair. A layered haircut is about how many lengths or ‘layers’ make up the body of the hair. You can have V-cuts and straight-across cuts with or without layers.

 

What’s the difference between a U-cut and a V-cut?

A U-cut is similar to a V-cut, but it’s less bold. V-cuts typically come to a point at the back, like a ‘v’ shape. A U-cut is still longer in the middle than a straight-across cut, but the slope is less dramatic.

 

Is a V-cut good for curly hair?

It depends! A V-cut looks great on loose curls and straight hair, but a V-cut does not look as good if your curls are incredibly tight.

 

A ‘v’ shape hair looks flattering, whether you choose a subtle V shape or an extreme shape. Ask your stylist to help you with this cut.
