Hairstyles for Heart-Shaped Faces: 20 Flattering Cuts

Almost all pixie hairstyles look great on heart-shaped faces.

"All those little pieces help emphasize the cheekbones and eyes; it's almost as if you build in cheekbones with this cut," says stylist Jimmy Paul in Allure Magazine.

The pixie may seem like a wash-and-go type of haircut, and it is. However, you will need trims every five to six weeks. This cut is also best for women without kinky, curly hair, stylist Rodney Cutler in Glamour magazine.

Not everyone can get away with a pixie. The cut can make a square face look more square and a long face look even more oblong. So if you have a heart-shaped face, you pretty much own the pixie cut.
