When you've got a heart-shaped face like Reese Witherspoon, the goal is to minimize the width of face. David Evangelista of David Evangelista Beauty recommends, "Long hair past the shoulders with bangs or bobbed hair below the chin with bangs. Either one of these hairstyles work great." Tracey Cunningham from Redken adds that blonde hair with highlights and lowlights and an ultra blonde base are hot this fall.

The most important thing to remember when choosing a fall hairstyle for your heart-shaped face is to minimize the width of your face. "You can measure this by taking a mental tape measure and looking from ear to ear," David Evangelista says. Jennifer Lopez's center part is making her forehead look wider than it is, but her "bronde" and beachy waves are totally on-trend.

"Ombr hair isn't going anywhere," Tracey Cunningham of Redken says. "It's a way for brunettes to have a bit of blonde in their hair without it being stripey." Jenna Ushkowitz's two-toned tresses are an example of ombr done right for a round face shape. The Glee star's long locks add length to her face, which Evangelista says is key for round faces.

Vanessa Hudgens got this short hairstyle for a movie, but oh dear, is it wrong for her round face. "Think lots of angles when it comes to choosing a cut for round faces. Structure is what is needed," Evangelista advises. If you're getting a chic fall crop, go for "Short cuts that keep the hair designed to be sleeker around the ears with a long side sweep."

Jennifer Aniston has a quintessential square face, and whether her hair is long or short, it always flatters her face shape. When it comes to this face shape, "You definitely want the edges of the cut to be softly rounded," Evangelista says. "Shorter angles around the face will lift and frame nicely--think layers that add lift but are also rounded." To make this look even more on-trend for fall, try going red!

Olivia Wilde's long, blunt bangs emphasize the squareness of her jaw. If you have a square face shape and want to rock some fringe, opt for side-swept ones to add softness. You can also take advantage of your face shape by recreating the masculine mane trend seen on the runway.

Great news! According to David Evangelista, "Most haircuts work on oval-shaped faces. From long to short, think accentuation--not exaggeration. Try a short, fun pixie like Halle Berry's!"

When you have an oval face shape, "The one hairstyle to be wary of is a heavy, thick bang. This could smother your petite face." Lea Michele's face looks much longer and more open sans fringe. Try an on-trend for fall half-up, half-down hairstyle for a face-flattering look.
