A heart-shaped face is generally described as cute, sweet, and charming. A heart shaped face is characterized by:
- Face shape is longer than it is wide
- Forehead and jawline are close in width
- Pointed Chin
- Forehead is wide and rounded around hairline
- Face is widest at your forehead but cheekbones are also pronounced
- Widows peak
With the right haircut and hairstyle you can create balance while emphasizing the beautiful features that are commonly associated with heart-shaped faces. When it comes to bangs with a heart-shaped face your goal is to draw attention downward and slim the forehead without hiding it. Generally, women with heart-shaped faces should avoid blunt cuts and full row bangs because it widens the forehead and shortens the length. Let’s take some inspiration from celebs with heart-shaped faces and bangs
Celebrities with a heart-shaped face: Kourtney Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Audrey Tautou
Long Wispy Bangs For a Heart Shaped face
Just because you should stay clear of heavy blunt bangs doesn’t mean you have to avoid a row of bangs all together. Reese Witherspoon wears her wispy bangs perfectly. The bangs should be cut vertically rather than horizontally, and they should fall between your eyelids and brows. The softness of the piecey bang will make your eyes pop and draw attention way from a pointy chin and slim the forehead.
A Heart Shaped Face with Long Side-Swept Bangs
Side-swept bangs styled with a deep side-part emphasize the strong cheekbones of a heart-shaped face. The side swept section will draw attention away from the chin and creates length to balance the width of the forehead and cheeks. Side-swept bangs are ideal because they have endless versatility and a heart-shaped face looks great with waves, curls, and volume and side-swept bangs compliment all textures.
Bangs that are parted to the center give a heart-face everything that it needs to effortlessly highlight, hide, and frame in all the right ways. They perfectly frame your forehead to help make your forehead appear thinner and they draw attention to your eyes and away from your chin.
