Fringes for Heart Shaped Faces
The reason fringes are suited so well to heart shaped faces is because they balance out a top heavy face by hiding your usually wide fore head.
Brow-grazing fringes are a great look on classic heart shaped faces. Skimming the eyes with a straight fringe will detract attention away from the point of the chin and hide a larger forehead whilst bringing out your eyes.
Make sure your fringe is long and skims the brow to achieve this affect.
Choppy or shattered fringes are great for fine hair as they make it appear thicker but also provide an interesting alternative to full fringe that will draw attention straight to the eyes.
If you're not daring enough to plunge straight in for a brow skimming fringe then a sexy sweeping side fringe is a safe option for your heart shaped faces.
Wispy short fringes will also look great on you especially if you have thick hair.
Adding some high lights or low lights to a fringe and the hair that frames your face can instantly add depth shine and thickness, great for brightening up thin, dull hair.
Fringes are not only there to look stylish but can do wonders when attempting to balance out features.
At the moment your main feature of your face will be your chin adding a fringe can instantly switch that main focal point to your eyes and check bones. Perfect!
