Hairstyles for heart-shaped faces are cut to flatter the features of a heart-shaped face, like a pointy chin, a wider forehead, and sharp cheekbones. Bangs are the number one go-to style for heart-shaped faces, as bangs cover that extra area on the forehead and balance the width of the face. Blunt bangs and long, piecey bangs top the list of recommended hairstyles for this face shape.

Celebrities with heart-shaped faces include actress Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Love Hewitt. If you are looking for flattering cuts for the shape of your heart face, the goal will be to create length, add fullness to the chin area, and avoid creating any more width on the forehead by adding bangs to your face.

Before your next hair appointment, check out these photos of the best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces.

#1: Beautiful Layers and Long Bangs

Accentuate your cheekbones with some layers and bangs, added to a medium-length chop. The haircut will look more exciting with curled ends for movement.

Modern Razored Edge Bob

#2 Modern Razored Edge Bob

This modern razored edge bob is ideal for highlighting the shape of your face, especially if you have a heart-shaped face. The choppy, layered cut creates texture and movement, while the side-swept bangs soften a wide forehead and draw attention to the eyes. The dark roots blending into lighter ends provide a trendy contrast, adding depth and dimension. This style works well with medium to thick hair and is easy to maintain with minimal styling effort.

Classy Boho Layers

#3 Classy Boho Layers

This classy boho layered hairstyle is perfect for adding volume and movement to your hair while enhancing the shape of your face. The long, cascading layers create a soft, romantic look, and the side-swept bangs help to balance a heart-shaped face by drawing attention to the eyes and cheekbones. This style works well with medium to thick hair and is versatile enough to be styled with waves or kept straight. Regular trims are essential to maintain the layers and keep your hair looking fresh and healthy.

Youthful Short Textured Bob for Women with Heart Face Shapes

#4 Mature Short to Medium Textured Bob

This short textured bob has lots of versatility that the texture brings out, whether it is styled straight or curly. This cut complements the shape of a heart face along with a slightly wavy natural texture. This modern and popular haircut worked well with women with some natural wave to their thick hair. Add a ton of texture without jeopardizing the foundation of the haircut. If you have fine/straight hair, a similar haircut is achievable but must be catered to that hair type.

Modern Lived-In Textured Bob for Heart Faced Women

#5 Modern Lived-In Textured Bob

This lived-in textured bob was achieved by dry-cutting to create texture and movement with invisible layering techniques. The lob suits most women. It’s also a look that suits most lifestyles, for women who like minimal work required to those who like spending time on their hair. It’s a great change for women who don’t want to lose all their length and still love to tie their hair up. This cut is easy to blast dry as it looks amazing when “undone,” but it also styles out glamorously.

Jewel-Toned Queen of Heart Faces

#6 Jewel-Toned Queen

The soft, ashy tones complement the jewel-toned peekaboos, creating a soft blend. The side bangs are a key element of this cut. This fringe is perfect because it starts by balancing out the widest part of the face while it can draw attention toward the eye and flatter the cheekbone. On the other hand, it also softens the structures and features of a square-shaped face. As for the rest of the haircut, most women with medium-length hair can pull off these textured layers with a beachy wave finish. Outside of coming in for consistent bang trims and regular trims, the only thing high maintenance about this cut is the color. It can only be achieved on level 8 hair or (preferably) higher.

Trendsetting Piecey Bob if Your Face is Heart Shaped

#7 Trendsetting Piecey Bob

Try this piecey bob. It’s effortless, with just the right amount of flirty bounce.  A piecey bob is a great style for fine hair that thirsts for fullness and dimension. Keeping the ends more tapered and no longer than chin-length helps emphasize and balance the heart face shape right at the cheekbones. I suggest you try L’anza AirPaste Spray. It’s the first sprayable stylist paste, perfect for texture, body, and definition.

#9: Korean-Inspired Soft Bangs

Adding bangs is the best approach if you’re looking to accentuate your eyes and switch up a long hairstyle. For those with thicker hair, consider a soft Korean-inspired bang. This ensures that your bangs don’t dominate due to excessive fullness. Instead, they serve as a subtle frame, subtly altering your style. Such a hairstyle, also known as bottleneck bangs, is characterized by a shorter center blending into longer facial framing.

A shorter layered shag hairstyle can add width to the jawline. This style helps to balance their dimensions.

Adding bangs is a great way to add playfulness and frames the face beautifully.

#12: Long Blonde Curled Ends

If you want to enhance their natural beauty, long blonde hair with curled ends is the ideal choice. This style captures the elegance of long hair and the fun charm of curls, creating a look that is both romantic and attractive. The curled ends bring life and volume to the hair, making it look fuller and thicker. Successful styling involves both keeping the curls long and preventing them from shrinking. To control frizz, use anti-frizz products and shine serums to shape and define the curls.

#13: Black-Rooted Ash Blonde Style

A black-rooted ash blonde style might be a great fit for you. It creates an attractive blend of black roots and ash blonde. This mix adds depth and dimension to your hair. The dark roots provide a stable base for the look, while the ash tones add a modern touch. The black-rooted ash-blonde style works well for heart-shaped faces. Dark roots can draw external observers’ eyes away from a wide forehead, creating a balanced facial look. Regular touch-ups are needed to keep the style fresh.

#14: Very Short Pixie for Thin Hair

The best way to volumize thin hair is to go for a very short pixie haircut. If one has thin or fine hair and it is worn too long, it can result in transparent ends. Short hair can prevent this. The soft texture of the pixie cut provides the hair with added volume and movement.

#15: Mid-Length Blonde Hair with Dark Roots

If you’re a woman with mid-length blonde hair, consider adding dark roots to your look for a trendy style.

#21: Gorgeous Long Brown Balayage

A gorgeous long brown balayage can be a big statement with little upkeep. One of the best ways to try going lighter from brunette is doing a balayage; the balayage mimics how the sun naturally lightens your hair, making this an easy grow-out with no harsh lines. When it comes to maintenance, your stylist will recommend what is best for you. Typically, you would return for a 4 to 6-week appointment for a color glaze to keep your shine and desired tone fresh. Adding curls or waves perfectly shows off your color, making the dimension pop.

#22: Gorgeous Mid-Length Curled Hair

Looking for a hairstyle that isn’t too long or short? Consider a mid-length bob. This is a perfect length and is great if you wear your hair curly. Suppose you can avoid running your fingers through your curls after using your curling iron. Allow the curls to cool down to set the shape, then use a brush and lightly brush through the hair to create a softer curl.

#23: Pixie Cut With Platinum Blonde Hair

A smart, effective trick to maintain a fashion color like platinum, which is usually hard to maintain and lasts only for a short time, is to chop your hair into a long pixie cut. Now, feel free to opt for bangs that sweep to the side for an added edge. The longer side creates an illusion of an asymmetrical cut.

#24: Light Honey Blonde Feathered Lob

If you have a heart-shaped face, you’ll want to ask for lighter color and heavy layering around your face. Combining the two is the best way to soften your prominent facial features and open your hair to widen your face. Ask for layers near your cheekbone and jawline. When styling, curl your hair away from your face.

#25: Medium-Length Ash Blonde Hairstyle

If your hair needs a bright pick-me-up, try a medium-length ash-blonde hairstyle. Ask your stylist for a foilayage to keep your grow out on this color feeling soft and natural.

The combo of the two will give you a full, flowy cut. Don’t forget to also try a brighter money piece. It will show off your color and soften your facial features.

#28: Stunning Chocolate Balayage

A chocolate balayage is such a beautiful yet natural look. If you have dark hair naturally, ask for some pops of lighter brunette. Keeping the light pieces on your mids to ends will keep your color low-maintenance. One of the best things you can do for the upkeep is to schedule regular color glazing sessions.

#29: Long Side-Parted Hair with Balayage

Long side-parted hair with balayage is a great way to transition into something different. You can always switch back. It’s hair. Nothing is permanent. Balayage is also a good place to start when you want something different, plus it’s low-maintenance. Most of the time, balayage is softer with minimal color at your new growth.

#30: Tousled Blonde Bob with Side Parting

Consider a blonde bob with a side parting. A deep side part will help emphasize the cheekbones, and the length of the chin will soften the jawline. Tousled locks give your hair movement and body an easy-breezy look.

This is a combination of chic modern meets pinup. The textured straight bangs make all the difference for heart and long face shape hairstyles! Bangs need some maintenance. Make sure that the length meets your face frame. Consider adding a little side fringe to connect with your layers. It will help soften your face and jawline. Texture spray is also your best friend. It’s flexible but gives just the right amount of hold. I recommend using Moroccan oil for moisture and repair to keep your hair healthy and shiny.
