I Heart Your Face!
Heart shaped face measures narrow at jaw line, wide at cheekbones and/or forehead.
Any styles you wear should be fuller at the top than at the jaw line. Upswept at the sides and off the forehead is a flirty look for you that plays up your best features. Fullness at the bottom, with hair directed forward onto the cheeks gives you the appearance of a wider chin. Wisps on the jaw area or wavy bangs can help give a wider, rounder appearance that evens out face. lf you are a dramatic heart shape, you need to leave weight in the back nape area. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more narrowing chin. The soft layered bob styles are ideal.
Or if you prefer, curls or loose waves, shaped from the ears down, add width and fullness to your chin Curls or loose waves, shaped from the ears down, will add width and fullness to your chin. Upswept at the sides and off the forehead further emphasize your feminine appeal
The perfect bob for a heart face doesn't hit above the chin. A long bob with fringe on a heart-shaped face looks great, just make sure the bob falls at your chin or just below it.
Draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones instead of your chin with long, sideswept bangs; they look great with any length of cut. You can do a shoulder-length cut with long layers, or long hair with these bangs.
Brow-grazing fringe is a great look. The bangs draw the eye up away from the chin and hide a large forehead. Make sure the bangs are long and skim the brow.
Want long hair? Go for long layers that graze your cheekbones, this will downplay a pointed chin.
Avoid styles that cling closely to your face, mirroring the heart shape, as well as blunt-cut bangs and harsh, choppy layers. Styles that are shorter than your jaw line. Height at the crown. Severe looks that are swept back do not enhance a heart face shape.
