There are many hair styles that will suit every face shape. The following information
contains the most important aspects of a good style for your face shape.
An inverted triangle and heart shaped face is characterised by a wide forehead and
high cheekbones and the face under the cheek area gradually narrows to a pointed chin.

Characteristics of a Good Style:

  • The hairstyle should be close to the face at the top of the ears to create soft waves that partially cover the ears.

  • Volume and width along the chin line.
  • Soft easy styles with a light fringe on the forehead.

Avoid:

  • Hair pulled back off your forehead.
