Best Hairstyles for Heart Shaped Face

What is Heart Face?

If you have a broad forehead and strong cheekbones with a narrow chin, then you have a heart face. Reverse of triangular shape, it is defined by wide at the forehead and cheekbones, but narrow at the jawline. Heart face symbolizes clever, intelligent, & expert (that’s why the traditional alien/E.T. face shape typified by heart shaped face with large forehead).

Hairstyles for Heart Faces

With a heart face shape, your main aim should be to give some width around narrow chin, or add length at the top to balance the narrow chin. Textured & wispy layers chin-length hairstyles will suit best. Side swept fringe will flatter your forehead. Short hair with semi spiky soft layer on the top & short sides also work for you.

Right Eyeglasses for Heart Faces

To minimize the width on the top face, you can try frames with thin rim. Eyeglasses frames that are wider at the bottom work best for you.

Hairstyles to Avoid

Short & full hair on the top that are slicked back will emphasize your upper face. Too much height at the crown with heavy straight across bangs will make you look top heavy.

    • Well man I have tried Faux Hawk. Don’t go for the conventional, out of the box, faux hawk. Don’t shave the sides completely alright and don’t leave the whole crop in middle. You just have to adjust the sides and top in such a manner that it looks good on your face.

  • Dang! I thought heart shape faces were for women. Isn’t there another name they call tha face shape for men, cause I’m smaller at the bottom and wider at the top.

      • Heart shaped faces actually look like a more masculine oval to me. Another name is the inverted triangle. It is not a triangle, nor pear because those have a wide chin and jawline, but narrow forehead. The heart has a wide forehead, widecheek bones, but narror jaw and chin

    • That’s awesome to hear. According to my researches heart-shaped faced guys like us would have short, cropped, close-to-the-scalp hair like Justin Timberlake’s, but I was worried that that it would accentuate my hairline which is pretty high. Since 13 (I’m 20), I lived with bangs, and my hair is soft and shiny. It’s so black, it sparkles in when sunlight hits it, and under the moonlight, it looks almost blue. It’s great to hear Chace Crawford’s hair as an option dude. : )

  • Hello.
    I'm a black man with i think, a inverted triangle/Heart shaped face.
    I normally have short hair and i think this makes my forehead look big but i don't know what other hairstyle to choose because i can't find a guide for black men. Anyway my problem is the hair on my sides is thin and takes longer than the rest of my hair to grow and it actually looks like I'm loosing hair on my sides. This makes my face look really weird. What hairstyles can i do that will make me look good?

  • Hi, i’m 16 and iv’e been having trouble which hair style would look really good. i have a heart face shape, fine hair but lots of it. any suggestions???

  • Hey,I am 15 and having trouble. I have a VERY obvious heart shaped face. It was never noticeable when I had long hair, and I actually looked pretty good. However, I have just joined the Air Force Cadets for school (IB CAS points)and have had to cut my hair. Now my face shape is very obvious, and looks kinda stupid, with a delicate chin and a huge forehead. Any suggestions?
    Also, I have had long hair pretty much all my life, so I have no clue what to do with it now it is shorter. Its been kinda just sitting there brushed forward and to the side and looks stupid. What can I do about that?
