As we discussed in our last post there are many factors that can go into determining the perfect haircut for you as an individual. However, The most important element is identifying the shape of your face. In this face shape series we will help you identify the cut that will work best for you. So here is the question? What is your Face Shape? Heart, Long, Round, Square, Oval or Diamond? Today we discuss the Diamond Face Shape.


The diamond shaped face is widest at the cheekbones with a narrowing forehead and a skinny, pointed chin.

What is the perfect hairstyle, for a diamond shaped face?

  • Your face shape is balanced and dramatic. Experiment with a variety of styles. Almost everything works with your face, as long as you are a true diamond. You can wear shorter styles. However, if you are a dramatic diamond shape, you need to leave weight in the back nape area like someone with a heart shaped face. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more delicate chin line.

  • Fringe options: Bangs (fringe) that sweep to one side

AVOID: The good news is you can do just about everything, but try not to wear too much hair on your face because you don`t want to hide your great features! I also suggest you avoid really short styles, a part in the center and styles that add fullness at your cheeks.

ALWAYS: Take a few photos of styles you like and take them to your hairdresser. They can best advice you on what will work best with your face shape, personality and lifestyle.

We hope you have enjoyed this Face Shape series. Happy styling!
