Generally, a diamond face shape has narrow chin and forehead, and wide cheekbones. With this features, adding width and fullness to the chin and forehead area would be essential. This can be done by adding side part or wide bangs and creating a hairstyle that adds fullness on the chin area. The side parts should be kept close to the face too.
Diamond Face Shape Hairstyles Options
Hairstyles that pull the hair back off the face, with choppy layers, a center part, and bare forehead should be avoided by diamond face shape. Bangs should be considered for short hairstyles. According to expert hairstylists, bangs keep the diamond face shape look longer. The bangs can be swept on one side so the top of the head will look wider. This will give a balance effect to the diamond face shape especially if it comes with wispy and soft layers to frame the face. To create a fuller look on the bottom of the face, it is suggested to try a gradual bob haircut that falls on the chin.
Soft long layers with bangs can also give structure to the overall look of a diamond face shape. It also keeps the face from fullness around the narrow portion and looking long as well.
Hairstyles Length For Diamond Face Shape
An ideal hairstyle length for diamond face shape is chin length. The length is often on the front jaw line whereas fullness at the nape area of the neck is created. Longer hair length is best with shoulder length haircuts with layers, curls, or waves starting from the jaw line. Shorter hair length is best with some layers and wide wispy bangs touching the cheekbones. Unfortunately, there is no hairstyle that will soften the chin of a diamond face shape.
