Pet Peeve #16

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

There has been a rash of young women showing me Pinterest photos of a very horrible hair cut for long hair. The V cut. I understand that having long hair limits what you can do with it to show something trendy and fun. You see the longer your hair, the thinner the ends look. It is in my opinion that hair that long needs a blunt cut on the ends to make your hair look thicker and healthy. When these clients show me this V cut I want to hurl. It makes the ends look thin and ragged. You will loose a lot of hair on the sides to show a good V cut. I just don’t understand why if you’ve grown your hair out you would want it to look thin and ragged. This is nothing more than a Pinterest fad.

Ladies, don’t fall for this cut. If your hair is long, embrace the length with a good blunt on the ends. You can layer longer hair, do some face framing or even add some longer bangs. There are options for you. The V cut isn’t one I’d recommend.

A lot of these cuts are shown with a point cutting technique which make me think ”Was the dog chewing on your hair “? Long hair with an Ombré or Balayage has the ends already lightened and usually very porous. Why would you do a razor cut, or point cutting?

If you have very long hair discuss your options with your hairstylist. Bring photos and please by all means don’t have this V cut.

Here are some examples of the V cut and some very poor results that happen when you get one. I personally don’t like them but it gets worse when the ends are point cut or razor cut. Below are Point V cuts and an example of what happens when you razor or point cut colored hair cut.
