do you prefer fairytle or blunt, V shape or U?

I prefer a V shape because my hair is curly and my nape has the curliest/tightest hair. Not a very deep V though. I don't like an overly obvious difference in length though. Otherwise it'll look shorter on my hemline.

Blunt, and with a very smooth U or totally straight :) For the record, my hair is wurly (2c), and I'm growing out layers to achieve that! I guess I could get ride of all layers by Christmas 2019 or so... *crosses fingers*

I love straight blunt hemline! =D

I would hate to have to choose. I prefer change.

The only thing I haven't tried is fairy tale because my hair is pretty fragile and gets damaged at longer lengths no matter how careful I am. So trim I must.

U for my 2a/sometimes 2b hair. I also like it best because my hair tends to go 1c so it looks good on straighter hair I think.

I like straight across blunt best for myself. Yesterday when I trimmed I reshaped my hemline to a soft U and reminded myself that a U hem is not my preference ;p I'll be reshaping back to straight across over the next few months ;)

I like a ___ or a U I think U is my favorite. V is too harsh.

I have a layered V-shape; shortest layer waist, longest layer classic. I cut it into my hair on purpose with the ponytail on the forehead technique (from the book, "Haircutting for dummies"). You can see in my signature. :)


ETA: I have to really stress this!

I wouldn't recommend this technique for everyone. You have to have quite a bit of hair, and also make sure it is at least waist length or you will end up looking like an 80s rocker. Not that that is bad, but you might be wanting something else from a layered cut.

I prefer a layered U or fairytale. I find blunt to be too harsh except on pin straight hair. I do like V but its not what I would want.

I prefer a blunt hem because I like doing a lot of plaits - at the moment I have a U shaped hemline but once I reach my goal of CL I will start to reshape it to ____ shape.

I prefer blunt and have never (as far as I can remember) had any other sort of hem. This was partly due to my mom trimming my hair and never doing anything else with it. I think soft U looks nice, too, though.

That nice, soft V-shape that fairytales bring! Otherwise, a soft U-shape...

My hair naturally fairytales like nobody's business, but I would prefer a perfectly blunt hem... sadly unattainable for me at these lengths.

I am one of the few who actually hates the term "hemline" because I prefer the look of fairytale ends! Why would you want your hair to look like you hemmed it? Upredictable layers give the hair more movement and mystique. I currently have a V shaped cut with short, blunt layers.

I live a gradual, layered u. Brings out my waves. I triangle head without a lot of layers.

Off topic- but your name.. :) We used to have a show here on cable tv that came on like 10 eastern. It was only on Manhattan cable when I was a teen, but I think the reruns on on regular cable these days.
Anyway, the hosts name was Robin Byrd. So when I see your name, I immediately think of her. Google her.. she had quite the show..lol..

A very soft U shape. Especially on wavy hair.

I like my current hemline of a deep U. But I honestly want to know what my natural hemline is.

That's hilarious. My name is Robyn but everyone at my old job called me Robi-Bird so it's stuck. New job people call me Robeena. Very few people actually call me by my name, except family. Which is weird but fine.

Love this! Glad to see there's someone who appreciates the underappreciated fairytale ends. :heartbeat

I like a U shaped hemline on myself, at least for now. When I have grown out old layers and damage I'd like to see how my hair fairytales naturally.

I prefer a blunt soft U hemline; it looks best whether my hair is wurly in dry air or curly in humid air.

Blunt, nice and straight across.

My hair is curly enough that it doesn't really matter! I think I prefer my curls to be about the same length right now, but once I have hair that's properly long, it can fairy tail if it likes.

JennGalt

I prefer fairytale ends. Especially since a blunt hemline tends to look awful on me. And I'm a curly, so I need a V or deep U to prevent triangle-head.

i love reading all your comments! I myself like all of them except for a v which i find a little harsh

I canít decide! There something about blunt ends that Iíve always loved. I love the uniformity and the symmetry. But currently I have a U shape that Iím enjoying. Round edges add a soft feminine appeal, and I see it as another ďcurveĒ on my figure :)

do you prefer fairytle or blunt, V shape or U?

I don't have a preference as it depends on the style, length, texture, thickness, colour, climate... all that. I just love the versatility of different hairstyles at lengths from shaved to floor+.

MidnightMoon

Straight, or a soft U. I think fairytale ends look good when the hair is in good condition, not stiff or frizzy, and when they happen naturally, like a soft transition where you can't really tell where the hair begins to thin. On wavy and curly hair I prefer softer hemlines because the hair seems to naturally clump or look thinner often.

I prefer mine to be straight and blunt, although it actually doesn't suit me :rolleyes:

My hair has been straight and blunt my entire life, but I'm curious as to what fairy tale ends would look like on my straight hair. I'm going to avoid trimming it for a few years to see what happens.

My hair has become thin over the years so I’m avoiding layers although everyone around me think they look better than a blunt hemline (I really like them on others, just not on my hair).
When my hair is longer I may give it a slight U shape to make it more natural but blunt as well.

I like blunt, cut either straight across or else with a very slight U shape.

looks wise down, I love fairy tale, but functionally and for styling I prefer blunt.

MusicalSpoons

For my hair, I prefer a blunt, moderate U shape. Well, as blunt as my ends will allow (i.e., not very!)

On others, whatever works on their hair! I think all types of hemline can be beautiful on different types of hair.

On myself in the past, Iíve usually liked the V-shaped hem. I used to regularly do a compact cut like lapushka, cutting across a ponytail on top of the head. But now that my hair is almost classic, itís laying differently, and the thinner ends are SERIOUSLY fairytailing. I still like the V, but the layers, I have been working extremely slowly (been no-trim for 1.5years now) to get those to reach my hemline.

Straight and blunt.

I'd love straight across but I don't think my head is ever going to go along with that. So U it is.

On me I prefer a U shape, either blunt or layered. My preference on that wobbles.

For me it needs to be straight and blunt to be stronger for growing, because I don't have so much hair. And I'm able to cut it myself so that's good too.

Fairytale ends, cause I am way too lazy to cut my hair! :p

Blunt.
But it just doesnt ever really happen, because my neglect is way too benign.

Fairytale. Especially in wavy/curly hair.

Iím currently enjoying a V shaped hemline. I wouldnít say itís a sharp V though. Iím only at APL right now so maybe this will change when it gets longer:)
