If your face is heart shaped it's narrow at the jaw and wide around the cheekbones and/or the forehead. The oval face is considered the perfect shape, so we always try to create that illusion when giving advice about face shape. Try some of these hair tips to help create the illusion of the perfect face shape with your hairstyle for the heart shaped face:

  • It's all about achieving width around the chin to change the appearance of a heart shaped face to an oval shape.
  • Try your hair at around shoulder length and go for fullness from the chin down. Soft waves and layers work well to achieve this.
  • Side partings with hair drawn across on a slant work well to draw attention away from the chin. Keep the rest of your own features very much in focus and draw attention to your best bits, often your dramatic cheekbones.

  • Avoid short styles especially those with lots of height on top.
  • Slicked back looks and this includes hair scraped back into a ponytail don't work for you.
  • Book, or drop in at your favorite or local salon and get a consultation. These are free of charge and will give you some great ideas that you can have a think about. If you have a decent printer, you can also print out some of our images and take them with you to see what the hairdresser thinks. Hairdressers really appreciate this as it gives them a starting point to say "yes, we can try this but your own hair is more wavy so will look more like this" for example. If you can't find pictures of what you want, take along a picture to show them what you don't want! We know this sounds strange but in the hands of an expert it will be obvious as to what you will like.
