Flatter your heart-shaped face with long side-swept bangs hairstyle. As your forehead tends to be wider, the side-swept fringe balances that off and brings the focus to your eyes.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair fresh by washing it with Sunsilk Naturals Watermelon Freshness Shampoo. This will help keep your hair from going limp and sticky, which is common when it is humid. Use this shampoo every day to leave your hair refreshed, cool, and volumized.

Bangs are a good way to help give balance and frame a heart-shaped face. If you want a soft-looking ‘do, go for wispy bangs. It looks laidback, relaxed, and doesn’t need much styling.

Editor’s tip: Get smoother hair by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex, which goes into your hair up to 10 layers deep. It also gives your hair 10 salon benefits, which include making it soft, shiny, and smooth. This shampoo also has an anti-frizz and anti-humidity formulation, and it even helps in detangling and strengthening your hair. Pair it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner for best results.

You can create this hairstyle for heart-shaped faces whether you have long or shoulder-length hair. Add blunt bangs and blow-dry them straight so they frame your face well.

4. Half Ponytail With Bow

You can also glam up a simple half updo by tying a half ponytail high on your crown and wrapping a bow around your hair tie. Add waves and a full fringe if you’re gunning for a sweet, doll-like look, and let your bangs give balance to your heart-shaped face.

Editor’s tip: Is your hair dry and difficult to comb? Use Cream Silk Rich Organic Powerfusion Rich Moisture Ultra Conditioner. It has shea butter and coconut oil that are known to moisturize your hair. This nature-powered conditioner also has different flora oils and extracts that keep your hair soft, smooth, and nourished. 

5. Hat

Aside from helping disguise a bad hair day, a hat can also frame a heart-shaped face (and other long face shapes). Make your look casual and street-chic by going for hats with downward brims like cloche and bucket hats.

Editor’s tip: Sweat and excess oil on your scalp can trigger dandruff. Avoid this by washing with CLEAR Botanique Scalp Care Shampoo. Its Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology, along with Mediterranean oils like tea tree, grapefruit, and bergamot, helps boost your scalp’s inner strength to keep dandruff at bay. 

6. Sleek and Layered

Bangs aren’t the ones that can balance and frame a heart-shaped face. Layers can do that well, too. Layers both work on straight and wavy hair, but if you want a sleek and polished look, iron your long hair straight and keep frizz under control.

7. Bouncy Blowout

A little volume and bounce can help bring out your best features, like your cheekbones and gorgeous jawline. Achieve this ‘do by directing your blow-dryer nozzle near your roots to create bounce. Then, add volume to the rest of your hair by using a round brush while blow-drying.

8. Bouncy Pixie Cut

A bouncy pixie cut is also one of the best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces. As most of the hair can be found at the top of your head, the bangs cover your forehead while showing off your gorgeous cheeks and jawline.

9. Long Choppy Bob

This long, choppy bob is definitely a winner because it frames your face and accentuates your cheekbones. The layers at the tip of your hair soften your slightly pointy chin, so go ahead and wear this bob hairstyle for heart-shaped faces.

10. Straight Lob

A sleek and straight lob can also work with your heart-shaped face. If you’re wearing this ‘do with a center part, let your hair fall on the side of your cheeks to let it frame your face and give it a more balanced shape.

11. Short Hair Curls

Got natural curls? You’re in luck because short curly hair can complement a heart-shaped face when you cut and style it correctly. If you’re going for a pixie cut or very short bob, let the top of your hair be thicker so the volume can help veer attention away from your prominent forehead and chin.

Editor’s tip: Keep your curls nourished without weighing them down by using TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Shampoo. It has green tea extract, Hawaiian ginger root extract, and tea tree oil that all have anti-oxidant and detoxifying properties. It gently and deeply cleanses your hair. Use it with TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Serum Conditioner, which provides lightweight conditioning and leaves your hair smooth. 

12. Bob with Side Part

This is one of the best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces because it lets a good part of the hair slightly cover your forehead. It is similar to a hairstyle with side-swept bangs—only without the fringe. In the same way, it draws attention to your cheekbones and eyes too.

13. Brushed Back Layered Hair

You don’t always have to cover your forehead when you have a heart-shaped face. You can wear a brushed-back ‘do. Just maintain the bounce and volume so your forehead and chin have some sort of a backdrop instead of being prominent. A layered, shoulder-length hair is perfect for a brushed-back style.

14. Long and Wavy

Waves are a great accent too, just as layers are. A wavy hairstyle exudes youth, sweetness, and life. Make big waves using a curler with a large barrel if you want a romantic look with subtle glam. You can even add a curly side fringe into the mix!

15. Head Wrap

Got only a minute to style your hair? Put on a head wrap. Aside from being a pretty hair accessory, a head wrap helps make your forehead less prominent. It’s also great if you’re in the mood for something ’80s.

There are so many hairstyles that you can choose from. The best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces can even be combined to create an even newer look, so feel free to experiment. And most importantly, have fun!
