The Best Hairstyles for Heart-Shaped Faces

Gwyneth Paltrow's pin-straight hair skims the widest part of her face thanks to her perfectly placed middle part. 

1. MIDDLE PART

For a softer vibe, pair your middle part with long, loose waves like Lily Collins's. Using a 1 1/4-inch curling iron.

2. LOOSE WAVES

The lob has been a Hollywood favorite for a while now because it works. It's universally flattering, short enough to show off your face.

3. WAVY LOB

Consider a lob that hits just below the chin, like Gabrielle Union's. Use a flatiron for a sleeker take, or copy Union's beachy waves.

4. LOB WITH DEEP SIDE PART

If you really want to show what you've got, chop it all off like Jessica Stroup. Tame any flyaways with wax or hairspray.

5. PIXIE

A rockabilly-inspired short cut like Scarlett Johansson's is perfect for anyone looking for a pixie with some edge.

6. PILED-ON PIXIE

Layers too close to your jaw can distract from your defined features, but soft layers below your chin, like Jennifer Aniston's, still let your jaw and cheekbones shine.

7. FACE-FRAMING LAYERS

Bangs are back, but stay away from anything too blunt. Instead, try feathery fringe like Kerry Washington's.

8. SOFT FRINGE

A deep side part and soft curls like Reese Witherspoon's can help create the illusion of cheekbone-framing layers.

9. DEEP SIDE PART

A classic top knot, like the one Zendaya recently wore, is a great way to show off sky-high cheekbones.
