Heart-shaped faces typically have a narrow jaw, with wider cheekbones. Bobs are a great cut for this face shape, because it brings out your bone structure. This is why Jennifer Love Hewitts breakover cut was such a success.
Those with heart-shaped faces, like Reese Witherspoon, may also have wider foreheads. Instead of opting for a style with your hair parted down the middle, draw attention to your cheekbones with side-swept bangs and long layers.
Sunglasses for Heart-Shaped Faces
If you have a heart-shaped face, stay away from oversized shades (think Nicole Richie or the Olsen twins) because they will cover the top half of your face and bring even more attention to your forehead.
Oval faces are the most proportionate, meaning they can wear almost any kind of cut. If you want to find out if you have an oval-shaped face, measure the length and width of your face with a measuring tape. The length should be one and a half times the width.
Jessica Alba is proof that oval faces are the most versatile. Whether her hair is blonde, brunette, long, or short, she always looks great!
Sunglasses for Oval-Shaped Faces
Oval-face shapes can wear a variety of different sunglass styles. Stay away from oversized frames though, since oval faces tend to have smaller features, and larger frames can make your face look smaller than it really is.
If your face is as wide as it is long, you have a round face. The updo should be your go-to hairstyle. It will make your cheekbones appear longer, and the added height will even out your rounder dimensions.
Layers and long, sweeping bangs like Kirsten Dunst's are perfect for round-face shapes. Avoid super short styles to keep your face as slim-looking as possible.
Sunglasses for Round-Shaped Faces
When choosing sunglasses, make sure you opt for a pair that's the same size as your face with sculpted angles. If you choose a pair that's narrower, your face will appear rounder than it already is.
Angular cheeks and jaw give your face a square shaped. To soften these features, add texture to your hair with curls, braids, or frayed ends.
If you're going to opt for long layers like Sandra Bullock, make sure they start at the jaw line to round out your facial features.
