Best hair for heart-shaped faces

The heart-shaped face is wide at the temples and forehead, full at the cheeks and narrow at the chin. Celebrities with heart-shaped faces include Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes and Keri Russell. Here are a few go-to styles for a heart-shaped face.

Best hair for heart-shaped faces

1Chin-length bob

If you love short hair, try a chin-length bob with tapered ends. It shows off your fabulous cheekbones while offsetting your pointy chin. Heart-shaped faces can also wear longer bobs, but avoid those that are above chin level.

2Sideswept, wispy bangs

Whether you're wearing your hair long or short, draw the attention away from your wide forehead and toward the eyes with sideswept, wispy bangs. These look fabulous with long, wavy hair, shoulder-length modified bobs and even pixie cuts.

3Don't emphasize the crown

Hairstyles that have too much height at the crown will make your face look top-heavy and your chin look even narrower. Avoid slicked-back ponytails, too; they're too harsh for your delicate chin.
