Long Hairstyles for Heart Faces
Got long hair? Then great, long hair really suits a heart shaped face and can detract unwanted attention from your pointy chin. Long soft layers will soften your chin area as long as you keep the layers wispy and grazing your cheekbones.
If you have long, thick hair think Jennifer Aniston, her hair is always long and flowing but she knows exactly how to wear it to complement her face shape correctly.
Long side swept fringes are the perfect compliment to a long hair style and will high light your eyes and defined cheekbones.
Highlights are a simple way to add depth and multi-tones into long hair, if you feel you like your hairstyle the way it is but want to experiment with colour why not try some? Adding another tone to your hair colour will make it appear fuller and healthier.
Jennifer Garner is another perfect example of a celeb who knows how to wear her hair to compliment her face shape, her long soft waves add a feminine touch to her pointy jaw and side swept bangs make her eyes sparkle.
Long waves really suit a heart shape face. If you usually wear your hair poker straight then adding some natural waves will inject some body and fullness to your hair and really flatter your face shape.
Remember to keep on top of split and frazzled ends with long hair. Go for a hair cut every 4-6 weeks to get your ends trimmed. If you're wondering how long is too long? Think anything over 4-5 inches below the chin, 4 inches is more than enough to look fabulous.
