Hyphenation of heart-to-heart

Are you trying to hyphenate heart-to-heart? Unfortunately it cannot be hyphenated because it only contains one syllable.

A heart-to-heart is a conversation between two people, especially close friends, in which they talk freely about their feelings or personal problems. ... Before the wedding, I had a heart-to-heart talk with my mother.

Why aren’t high-spirited or higgledy-piggledy Idioms? Would they be if they weren’t hyphenated ?
