As we continue our “Beauty Hacks” series, this week we are going to talk about one of the most iconic looks for fashionistas everywhere – the vernacular term is referred to as the “v-neck look.” Some say it was designed and perfected by none other than Coco Chanel herself!
The key feature of this hairstyle is what people refer to as the “vee neckline.” This is when your natural hair line is broken up by an angled cut that creates a shape resembling a letter V.
Mostly known today as the “cherubic or angelic” neckline, this classic hairstyle can be both casual and formal depending on how you dress yourself and whether or not there are pictures taken before attempting this beauty hack.
If you have ever wanted to try out the vernacular “v-neck look,” then read on for some tips and tricks on how to get the perfect looking result every time! Keep reading to learn more about the different variations of the look and why they work so well.
There are many different types of clothes
Stylish looks come down to how you mix and match pieces, what colors you use, and whether or not you have fun with fashion.
As we all know, finding fashionable clothing can be difficult at times.
There is an endless amount of styles, trends, and fashions that people create. It seems like every week there is a new way to dress.
It is hard to keep up with all of them. If you do manage to find something you like, it probably will not last long due to lack of availability.
Fortunately, technology has made creating your own style much easier. You no longer need to sew your own dresses or pick through bins looking for matching shoes and jewelry.
You can now get virtually anything designed-gym gear, swimwear, sweatshirts, bags, and even footwear online.
There are many different price points
Recent trends with v hairstyles have shifted towards more expensive, elaborate styles or even cost-effective but very extravagant looks. Technically speaking, a one perky eye is called a “v” shape!
Many people credit famous YouTube beauty gurus for introducing the lower budget version of the look. However, it was actually designed and perfected by makeup artist Alyssa Milano.
She originally coined the term “vanishing eyeliner” back in 2007 before popularizing it as “lashless eyes.” Since then, she has created several tutorials using either black liquid liner that fades into the skin or just white eyeliner completely disappearing under the natural luster of the lid.
Overall, these coverage-lightening liners are quite popular and can be found almost anywhere you buy new make up products. They are also great to use if you are trying to reduce your exposure to heavy cream concealer and foundations because they work like a lighter coverup product.
There are many different brands
Recent trends of ‘v’ inspired hairstyles have come under fire for being overly complicated and expensive. Many believe that it is not worth the cost to get the same look as someone who uses professional products.
Many people use fake, or very heavily gelled hair to create this look so it is possible to achieve this style without using too much product. Technology such as Beads-on-Bristle can also be used to add some extra hold and bounce to your locks.
There are several variations of the inverted ‘v’ hairdo but we will discuss one here! This looks is usually done with either thick, naturally curly hair or dry, straight hair. Technically anyone could recreate this look, even if you don’t have natural curls or frizz!
What makes this hairstyle unique is the shape of the bottom part. It typically has two small bumps coming together at the front and then slowly getting thinner towards the back. These bumps are what gives it its name; the vertical barbs!
This hairstyle may seem difficult to do correctly at first but there are plenty of videos online showing how to do it. Also, most beauty stores offer low priced trims or treatments to help bring out the soft curl in your hair.
There are many different styles
Styling your hair with lots of little touches is what real life hairstyles are made of! Hairstyle trends come and go, but one style that has seen resurgence is the low side part with top roll-up or flip. This look can be done several ways, but most commonly it’s to have a longer, lighter oomph at the front and a shorter, heavier one at the back.
To make this work, you will need two sections of hair – one short and heavy for the back, and one long and light for the front. To keep it authentic, try using pre-packaged rolls or fake ones you buy at a salon.
Once those are in place, pin out the front as close to zero as possible while keeping some weight away from the back so it doesn’t look too flat.
There are many different colors
Certain shades of red, for example, can be very dramatic. A classic way to use this color is with blush- it’s typically just mixed into your natural skin tone or as a gentle highlight. Or you can apply it more heavily as contour makeup, which helps bring out your features.
Blush is also one of the most popular types of cosmetic concealers. It was originally designed to cover up dark spots and/or wrinkles, but some people now use it for more general toning and enhancing their appearance.
Another option is warm toned shadows, like those that contain brown or golden undertones. These look good when used as bronzers, either all over the face or targeted towards a specific area (like cheeks or forehead).
Cool tones work well too! Blues and greens will usually wash you out, while pinks and oranges are rich and bright.
There are many different lengths
V-shape faces are not the most popular way to do makeup. They originated over 100 years ago, when artists needed to emphasize certain features or areas of your face.
Since then, they have become less common due to their limited use. Most people today can’t seem to get enough square skin from a v-shaped face!
That is why we find classic shapes like round, heart, and rounded rectangle being more fashionable now.
Luckily for you though, making that beautiful v-shape beauty look is easy! In this article, I will show you some easy ways to shape your own natural looking v-face.
So what are we going to be doing here? We will be practicing our beauty looks on your own first, second, and third base levels. These are called the beginner level makeovers.
After those, it is time to move onto the intermediate level makeups.
There are many different shapes
Although most people associate the circle shape with feminine looking clothing, there is another very popular oval shaped dress that has become quite famous! This dress is known as the “v” or vee neck dress and it was first seen at New York Fashion Week back in 2004. Since then, it has been featured prominently in runway shows and has now became one of the top selling dresses style-wise!
The reason why this dress has become so popular is because it looks good on almost everyone! Most body types look great in a dress that features a v-neck line and full length sleeves. The only thing that may not work for some is the feet! Some find the legs too short which can make walking difficult.
Overall, whether you’re tall, petite, lean, or have lots of baby weight, a v-neck dress is an excellent way to refresh your wardrobe and add some new fashion pieces.
There are many different textures
Textures are an integral part of designing with fashion. They can be made of materials like leather, denim, cotton, wool, or plastic. Some examples of textures include fur, suede, velvet, leather, fuzzy fabrics, beads, and fluff.
Texture is one of the most important design elements you can use to create fashion looks. Different textures give your look more depth and appeal.
When used properly, they enhance the beauty of the product being covered in them. For instance, silk dresses have a rich texture that adds glam to the garment. A dress made of lace also has a very interesting texture to admire.
Sadly, not every fabric is designed to fit into this category! Sometimes manufacturers add large amounts of fake hair or foam to make the material seem thicker. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it should still be recognized as a textured piece.
