Hairstyles for Heart-Shaped faces
Choose a style that will create volume around the bottom of your face. But whatever your hair type, don't have your hair too long. Four inches below your shoulders is ample.
Thick, long hair? Ask for soft layers to soften your chin area - keep the layers cut as close to your jaw line as possible so that they can fall on to your face.
Long, curly locks will look fantastic on a heart-shaped face if you keep them soft and loose.
Ask your hairdresser to cut them round so that they lightly fall on to your face then use a serum like The Body Shop smooth over serum, £4, to keep them frizz-free.
A short bob shape is a safe and sexy style. This works best on curly or wavy hair, just don't let it grow any longer than your jaw line. Insist on a choppy cut around your chin - not a thick, blunt, bush of locks.
Fringe options: A shorter, wispy fringe is low-key but will look gorgeous, especially if your hair is quite thick. A blunt fringe is really dramatic and will work well on all hair.
Colour you sexy: Highlight hair above the ears to widen your face and low light above.
Short, full styles that emphasize upper face. Height at the crown. Severe, slicked back looks. If you are a dramatic heart shape, the short full styles with tapered necklines which emphasize the upper face will make you look top heavy. Too much height at the crown will give the appearance of a longer and narrower chin. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize! Don't miss the boat by getting a cut which is to top heavy.
Other Heart face celebrities include:
Michelle Pfeiffer, Ashley Judd, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claudia Schiffer, Emmanuaell Beart, Juliette Binoche, Lucy Lawless, Naomi Campbell
