Every women needs to change up her hairstyle every once in awhile and bangs are one of the best ways to get a new look. If you want bangs but you’re not sure what type will work with your heart shaped face then here is your guide to bangs for your face shape.
Celebs with a heart faced shape: Reese Witherspoon, Kourtney Kardashian, Ashley Greene, Eva Longoria-Parker, Naomi Campbell, Mary Kate Olsen, and Nicole Richie.
The Wrong Bangs for a Heart Shape
First off, we need to cover the wrong type of bangs for a heart face shape which is generally any type of bang that is heavy and full because it will add width to your forehead and make the chin area look even thinner. Also, if you happen to have the widow’s peak then you should skip short bangs because they are hard to control with a widow’s peak.
Long Side-Swept Bangs are Popular
If you’ve seen celebs with a heart shaped face like Reese Witherspoon you’ll notice that they often opt for long side-swept bangs. The long side-swept bang draws attention away from the pointy chin as well as frames the forehead making it appear narrower there are also bangs hairstyles that can make a short forehead appear longer.
The side-swept bang should at least be as long as your eyebrows for a truly flattering side-swept bang hairstyle.
Brow Grazing Wispy Bangs
If you want a more dramatic fringe than a side-swept bang then long wispy bangs are a great option. Though they are blunt, they are not heavy and the wispy strands will draw attention to your eyes and away from the chin. You want to keep them long so that they can still have the effects of the side-swept bang. Your stylist should cut your hair vertically so that the bangs stay piecey – and ultra sexy.
