A V-line hairstyle frames your face in the shape of an upside-down "V" beginning from the part of the hair. V-line hairstyles frame heart and round face shapes well, drawing attention to your eyes. According to Margit Rudiger and Renate von Samson, authors of "388 Great Hairstyles," while any hairstyle with a centre part that frames your face is technically a V-line, certain styles work best for different lengths of hair.

Short V-Line

A short V-line hairstyle makes your face appear balanced by drawing attention upward. To create a short V-line style, cut your hair to a length of 3 to 4 inches all over. Then, use a comb to part the hair in the centre so that it creates a V shape on your forehead. If your hair does not naturally stay this way, hair gel or hairspray will help it hold this style. According to Robert Vetica, author of "Good to Great Hair," hats go well with a short V-line hairstyle as they complement its symmetry to balance your facial structure further.

Medium V-Line

A medium length V-line hairstyle, also known as a medium bob-cut, frames your entire face. According to Charles Worthington, author of "The Complete Book of Hairstyling," the medium V-line haircut is the most common of all V-line styles. Most medium-length V-line hairstyles have the hair near the front of the head cut slightly longer than the hair in the back. This creates a sloped appearance that makes your face appear angled and defined. When styling the medium V-line cut, part your hair down the centre and brush it smooth so that it frames your face on either side. Alternatively, you can use hair clips to hold the hair back from your face, behind your ears, while still creating the V shape.

Long V-Line

A long V-line haircut is a bold style that elongates the neckline and draws attention to the eyes and mouth. A long V-line hairstyle is versatile and works well with any longer length haircut, says Worthington. Part your hair down the centre and simply brush it to frame your face with a V shape, creating a simple, long V-line hairstyle. Alternatively, you can pull your hair back into a ponytail and leave 1 inch of hair hanging down on either side of your face.
