A heart shaped face is considered one of the most ideal face shapes you can have! If you have been told that you have a “heart shaped face” it is probably because you have a relatively wide forehead compared to a narrower chin, and, you more likely than not also have a cute widows peak and killer cheekbones!
The best hairstyles for your heart shaped face will draw attention to your awesome cheekbones and tapered chin, but will frame your forehead in a way that makes it appear softer and less drastically different from the rest of your face. Take a look below at our top 25 picks for hairstyles for heart shaped faces!
