The Right Bob for Your Heart Face Shape
The most suitable bob hairstyles for a heart face shape should feature all or some of the following:
- A short length, chin length or shoulder length (with wispy layers).
- Choppy layers.
- Hair texture.
- Hair volume.
- Layers that provide fullness around the narrow chin.
Chin Length Graduated Bob
A bob that's chin length is a great length to counter balance the shortness of a heart face shape.

The Wrong Bob for Your Heart Face Shape
To ensure your bob hairstyle is suitable for your face shape, select a bob that does not have any of the following hairstyle features:
- Blunt cut bangs.
- A slicked down top section.
A Bob with Blunt Cut Bangs
A bob with blunt cut bangs that cover up a large portion of your face and leave all the attention to your narrow chin should be avoided.
Slicked Down Bob
A slicked down bob will only put emphasis on the wider, upper part of your face shape.
