The same way that knowing your skin type can help you tailor the prefect skin care routine, understand your face shape can help you find the most complementary haircut to help accentuate all of your very best facial features. While there are many different face shapes out there, today we will be discussing heart-shaped faces and the best hairstyles to pair with them. A heart-shaped face is characterized by an elongated jawline, with the sharpest, smallest point of the face being the chin. Just think of it as a triangle flipped upside down with rounded edges. Heart-shaped faces are seen far and wide among celebrities, models, and everyday gals. While not all of us are famous, by knowing your face shape, you can get in on the A-list hairstyles, too. So, who’s ready to find their new haircut? Below, we share the six best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces and beauty tips for styling each one.
There’s nothing like a good pair of bangs to draw attention front and center. Instead of your chin being a focal point, long, piecey bangs offer a soft distraction to your face shape for a seriously flirty, extra pretty look. Just remember—you’re an adult now, so to stay away from a schoolgirl look, keep your fringe no shorter than eyelid length. Plus, with added length comes the option to switch up your fringe on the daily, effectively leading us into our next look for heart-shaped faces.
If you take the long, piecey bangs route but find yourself wishing for a little variation from time to time, comb your bangs over to the side for a quick and easy face shape-accentuating hairstyle. On the other hand, if you know from the get-go that you want to rock a side-swept look, ask your stylist to trim your tresses for an eye-catching cut. By wearing an angled, side-swept bang with the shortest pieces grazing your brows and the longest hitting the outer corners of your eyes, you’ll be able to draw attention up to your eyes, away from your narrow chin.
If you’re feeling particularly daring and want to embrace one of the season’s hottest trends, thank your lucky stars because blunt bangs work beautifully with heart-shaped faces. Just be sure to keep your fringe clipped to your brows, as going any shorter can serve less as an accentuation and more of an off-kilter facial element.
When you have a heart-shaped face, you may find yourself wanting to accentuate areas of your face other than your chin. To do so, try wearing your hair in a deep side part. The asymmetrical hairstyle will draw attention to your cheekbones for a truly chiseled look. The best part? You don’t necessarily have to get your hair cut this way—simply move from a middle part to a side part when you see fit.
Piecey hairstyles are all the rage here in 2018. When paired with a heart-shaped face and cut close to the head, the result is an ultra-trendy pixie that emphasizes bone structure without adding to the appearance of your slender chin.
As much as we love a classic bob on a heart-shaped face, we’re particularly fond of the lob at the moment. The slightly longer, face-framing angles make for a curtain showcasing a gorgeous face. The angles will help soften the jawline, while the short length won’t drown out the shape altogether.
Whichever hairstyle you choose, there are a few things you can do to make your new haircut look its absolute best. Take a look at your hair care routine and make sure that you have products including shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo, and wave spray on-hand at all times. Together these products can help set you hope for strands success. Since heart-shaped faces are already top heavy, a volumizing set of shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner, can help perk up your hair’s overall shape for a more balanced look. What’s more, a few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray will not only allow you to give your hair a break from hot tools, but it will help create natural volume that pairs beautifully with a heart-shaped face.
