V-Shape Haircut: 12 Beautiful Ways to Style It

Need more style inspiration for your V-shape haircut? We've listed 10 ideas to try to nail the look!

The V-shape haircut is a popular look, especially for long hair. Instead of having even tips, your hair is cut into layers on ends forming a “V”, which you can best show off when laid down.

The key to rocking V-cut hair is to showcase the ends. So whether you put your hair up in a ponytail or leave it down, make sure there’s room for the tips of your hair to shine. Here are easy ways to style your V-shape haircut

1. Straight V-shape haircut

Going the sleek and straight route is one way to style your V-shape haircut. With this, your V-shape tips are accentuated more. To jazz it up even more, you can add a few cute hair accessories or color your hair with a trendy hue like mahogany!

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair smooth and sleek by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo. Formulated with argan oil and keratin, this shampoo cleanses your hair while giving it the benefits of keratin in just one wash. It leaves your hair smooth, calms frizz, detangles, adds shine, and tames flyaways.

This hairstyle adds a romantic touch to your look. And with the rest of your hair down, you still get to show off your V-shaped haircut. Just divide your hair on one side, take a section of hair from the side with more hair, then braid this section. Secure the ends with an elastic or a hair tie.

Editor’s tip: After shampooing, use Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner to help fight frizz and leave your hair smoother and straighter. 

6. Long Curly Hair

The V-shaped haircut doesn’t just work on straight hair. It suits natural curls as well! Having V-shaped tips also help in distributing your hair’s natural volume, so your curls get a lovely bounce.

7. Half updo with braid

A half updo with braid is also a great way to style your hair and showcase your V-shape haircut. Just get a section of hair from your temples up to your crown and put it in a three-strand braid. That’s it!

8. Teased hair

Make a long down ‘do look a bit #extra by teasing it. The added volume and height on your crown can make your hair look bouncy. This is a great hairstyling hack if you have thin hair.
