Outlining The Face: Another style for heart shaped face is to highlight the facial features by framing the face. This is a short-medium haircut in which outer edge of hair frame the face by slightly scraping it. This is also a multi-layer cut, which emphasizes the eyes and cheekbones.

The multi layers at the crown are allowed to flow downward with natural waves to add weight around the pointy chin. A side part will look fabulous with this hairstyle.
Lob: A long lob, preferably that just about covers the neck, with all hair strands in one length takes the emphasis off the jawline, softens it and accentuates the cheek bones. This does not only draws attention to your heart shaped face but also highlights your shoulders. So if you have sleek and straight shoulders then you must don this hairstyle and flaunt just more than your face shape.

Bangs: Bangs, especially the soft ones that you can sweep to one side of the forehead has the quality to put an apt amount of focus on your eyes and take the unneeded focus off that pointy chin.

When you are getting these bangs for yourself then ask your hairstylist to give you the vertically cut across bangs rather than the straight across ones. Remember to not cut them too short otherwise it will look like a very naïve hairstyle.
Pixie: All kinds of pixie hairstyles look great on heart shaped faces. With really short hair strands on your head, your eyes and cheeks are bound to get a lot of attention. This one is for you if you have a killer jawline, the kind that you always wanted to flaunt. Also goes very well with long necks.

Loose Curls: If you have natural curls then consider it to be a blessing for your heart shaped face. Nothing makes you heart shaped face look more original and fresh than natural curls falling on your face. Just a regular maintenance and styling will ensure that your natural curls look super on you.
