Question Show people: Need face advice!

I've got my first stpoo puppy and although I won't be showing her, I want to try and do things right. I was trained to shave an inverted V between the eyes, and the grooming books I have say to do the same... but the pictures I'm seeing it doesn't look like the dogs have an inverted V between the eyes, it looks straight across from the eye corners. What is correct? Is the V there, but covered up from the topknot? Pictures would be great!!
Also, does anyone have a favorite type of band they like to use? Her topknot isn't long enough yet to put bands in, but I'd like to get some for when the time comes.

It's really preference, I prefer the straight line myself, just make sure not to shave above the corners of the eyes.

Inverted V here. You can notice it much more in the show topknot than you can with his pet topknot he has now.

ETA: Forgot to attach the photo to show you how it looks with the pet topknot!

You might also think you are seeing it straight across but the natural cow-licks between the eyes, make it easier to do the inverted V. Plus bubbles that are done right can hide a lot of oops!
