If you have a heart shaped face, you’ll know that it can be a pain to find the right hairstyle to flatter your fabulous cheekbones and dainty chin! While these are great features to have, they do have special requirements when it comes to your hair. First of all, heart shaped faces have wide forehead areas and narrow chin areas, so that in itself takes some balancing—bangs are a heart’s best friend for this purpose alone! Hearts also need some volume and body around the narrow chin area too, so that’s something to keep in mind when you are looking for a new ‘do.
On the flipside, hearts can pull off almost as many hairstyles as an oval, so there is no shortage of styles to choose from. Take a look at these latest hairstyles for heart shaped faces to get some styling ideas going!
Tamera Mowry has the right hairstyle for her face shape here—a sleek and straight bob with a jagged cut fringe. This is a simple and sleek look that gives Tamera major style points while flattering her heart shaped face. The eye skimming jagged cut fringe camouflages her high forehead, while the blunt ends work well with her dainty chin area. Heart shaped faces look especially great in sleek, straight hair so get out those flat irons to style your ‘do!
Another sure-win for heart shaped faces are short and sassy ‘dos, like the one we see on Michelle Toussant here. Thanks to a heart shaped face’s strong cheekbones and chin, short hairstyles look spectacular and bring all of the focus to that great bone structure. Michelle’s ‘do has a tapered back, while the sides and top have longer layers that create tons of volume and texture. The wispy eye-skimming fringe is the cherry on top of this hairstyle!
Sofia Vergara looks stunning here in a long straight hairstyle that is ideal for a heart shaped face. Sofia’s ‘do is simple but it makes a statement. Her long caramel brown layers flatter her face shape and complexion nicely, and the centre part works great with her face shape. Not many face shapes can pull off the centre parts like hearts, so give this one a try!
Kiernan Shipka lets her heart shaped face shine with this simple wavy bob. Shoulder length ‘dos are great for this face shape and the soft waves add body and bounce where it’s needed most. Kiernan is also working the centre part here with fabulous results. This is an easy to manage hairstyle that is ideal for heart shaped faces, and can be worn straight or wavy for some nice versatility!
And finally, if you are a fan of long hair and have some natural texture in it, let it all hang loose like Jillian Rose Reed. This long layered style is simple and chic, but thanks to those waves, Jillian has a rock chick edge to her look. She has a slightly off-centre messy part which adds to this carefree look. If you have a heart shaped face and like to go for edgy, cool looks, try this one out!
