Frames and Face Shapes: Heart

Victor LopesFrames for Fashion

Heart Shape

Heart Shape faces are characterized by a larger/broader forehead and a pointy chin and narrow jaw line. The goal of frames with this face shape is to make the forehead appear narrower and make the jaw look wider. By selecting frames that angle more outward at the bottom such as Aviator or “bowtie shaped” style glasses, the beauty of this face shape is easily achieved . Another option is to choose a frame with a more central bridge to help widen the jaw. Reese Whitherspoon and Robert Downey Jr. are some celebrity examples of this Heart face shape.


Our showroom at nv have a number of frame models from Paulino Spectacles, Monoqool, Vinylize, Jonas Paul, Ganeko Unit and AM Eyewear that fulfill the tenants above. These frames come in acetates (plastics) and in metals with an astounding variety in colours and patterns.  All six frame lines are exclusive in Winnipeg to nv Eye Care Eye Wear. Come in and see these modern and stylish frames and complete your new fall look.
