Top 50 Hairstyles for Heart Shaped Faces
Welcome to our Top 50 Hairstyles for Heart Shaped Faces! True heart-shaped faces have a widow’s peak (a V-shaped point in the centre of the hairline) that creates the characteristic heart shape. Heart-shaped faces also have slightly wider cheeks and a narrower jawline that drops into a pointed chin. Happily, most hairstyles and cuts suit heart-shaped faces – just watch out for styles that accentuate your jawline or your chin, as they tend to make your face look bottom-heavy!
If you have a heart shaped face like celebrities Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, and Taylor Swift, take a look at our Top 50 Hairstyles for Heart Shaped Faces to find a fabulous new hairstyle.
