Hairstyles For Heart Shaped Faces

A heart shaped face is when your face is wider at the temple and tapers to a small and narrow chin. Imagine how you would draw a heart on a page. Tyra Banks, Reese Witherspoon and Kourtney Kardashian all have heart shaped faces. A common trait of heart shaped faces is killer cheek bones. In this article we look at the best hairstyles for heart shaped faces that show off these cheekbones and the fabulous shape of the face.

You have two main choices when it comes to hairstyles for heart shaped faces. You can choose to accentuate your tapered face shape, or you can balance it out by making the bottom of your face appear wider.

If you want to accentuate the heart shape then high top knots and slicked bank pony tails work really well. However if you want to balance out your face whey not consider a lob that comes to just above your shoulders? This will add wideness around your jaw line and make the lower part of your face appear wider.

Prefer longer hair, but still want to balance out your heart shaped face? Try a deep side part with loose waves. When he waves break at the collarbone the attention is drawn away from your forehead. Should length hair is a really good hairstyle for heart shaped faces. This is because it adds volume around the bottom of your face, and creates an illusion of a wider chin.

Try to avoid shorter bangs as these can make your chin look even narrower. A true heart shaped face also has the risk of the widow’s peak hairline. If you are struggling with this we would recommend that you avoid forcing your hair into a middle parting. Instead part your hair slightly off centre. It will then fall naturally over your widow’s peak.
