Haircuts for Heart Shaped Faces to Look Gorgeous
Haircuts for heart shaped faces are so numerous and can be easily found. A heart-shaped face is the envy of many women. If you are blessed enough to have a heart-shaped face, you are running with some of the female greats such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Claudia Schiffer. You are lucky enough to be blessed with killer cheekbones, a wide forehead and a tapered chin. And if you’re one of the few, you also have a widow’s peak, which allows a lot of sultry hairstyles for face shapes.
The best hairstyles for heart shaped faces will enhance your cheekbones and flatter your eyes and can include and/or incorporate the following options: side-swept bangs, high or lowlights, curls, waves and long flowing layers.
As opposed to haircuts for oval faces, you want to create extra volume at the bottom of your face with softer layers at the top to balance out your heart-shaped face.
If you’re looking for a fun new style to enhance your heart shaped face and gorgeous eyes and cheekbones, check out the following list of popular haircuts for heart shaped faces.
1. Sexy, Sculpting Waves
These big, loose waves look great on longer hair and the side swept bangs will soften your face to enhance your gorgeous facial features. Use your favorite styling product after washing and conditioning your hair, then blow dry your hair with a large round brush. Next, use a large-barrel curling wand to make loose vertical waves. Style your bangs seductively to one side and spray with a lightweight holding spray to keep the flow and movement of those luscious locks.
2. Side Parted Sexy Lob
A long lob, parted to the side, will narrow your forehead and soften your jaw line. To give this cut an edge, add some darker tones for a multi-dimensional effect. To style, apply your favorite styling product to wet hair and then use a styling brush while blowing your hair dry, parting your hair dramatically to one side. Next, apply a thermal protectant and straighten your hair with a flat iron and finish with a shine serum.

4. Tousled Tendrils
It is one of the prettiest haircuts for heart shaped faces. Tousled curls not only add dimension but they look effortless, too. With its side swept bangs and full-bodied curls, this look is sexy and sophisticated. To style, part your hair to one side and then blow out with a paddle or round brush until smooth. After drying, take the top section and bangs with a hair clip, then curl the rest of your hair with a 1-inch curling wand. Spray with a light holding spray and use a small amount of serum to break up the curls, pulling them through gently till they hang loosely. Take out the hair clip and use a flat iron to smooth out that section, flipping it back and blending it in with the curls.

This adorable bob ends right at your chin and perfectly frames your heart-shaped face. The slight angle gives it a contemporary feel.

While wet, apply your favorite styling product and then blow dry with a round brush. Apply a serum for shine and a styling product for added texture.
6. Simply Sophisticated
The soft, voluminous curls of this look fall gracefully around your chin, gently framing your heart shaped face. This style looks even better with subtle highlights or a fun ombre color combo. To style, smooth your hair while drying with a round or paddle brush. Once your hair is completely dry, curl medium-sized sections vertically with a 1 inch barreled curling iron, curling your hair back and away from your face. Spray immediately when finished. Try not to touch your hair or you will disturb the curls.

9. Long Side-Swept Bangs
It wouldn’t be a secret to anyone that heart-shaped faces are wider at the top and that can make your look a bit heavy, but there is always a way out. In fact, we can suggest you a perfect way out – long side-swept bangs come here to help you achieve the needed balance! The attention from the top is shifted now to your eyes and lower part of your face. The shorter pieces of your bangs should reach your eyebrows and the longest ones should reach beneath your eyes.
