    Best Hairstyles for Diamond-Shaped Faces

    Showcasing prominent cheekbones with a narrow chin and forehead, the diamond face shape seems made for the camera. Stars like Elizabeth Hurley, Scarlet Johansson, Monica, and Vanessa Hudgens prove this, rocking their delicate yet fox-like features in sexy roles in movies and music videos. The only things to worry about with this face shape? Playing down the point of the chin and shortening the length of the face. How do you do it with hairstyles? Read on!

    Bang, Bang

    Bangs can really help shorten the look of a diamond-shaped face, especially when cut blunt and straight across. Wispy, side swept bangs can also be a good look, although center parts, which tend to elongate the face even more, should be avoided.

    Many hairstylists advise against leaving the forehead of a diamond-shaped face exposed, but the look can work. Try using a side part and letting locks flow naturally in a casual style like Native American actress Irene Bedard (pictured), or sporting a no-fuss partial updo like Scarlet Johansson (also pictured).

    The Right Length

    A diamond face shape calls for hair at the neck and chin levels, to add width at the jaw line. So go for medium chin-length haircuts cut evenly or shoulder-length locks with subtle layers that frame the face and kiss the cheekbones (flaunt what you’ve got, girl!). Flips or other wispy, kicked-out looks will especially help add balance to this face shape, and looks that can easily be tucked behind the ears also call attention to the eyes and cheeks.

    Short Stop

    When rocking short hair cuts with a diamond-shaped face, avoid styles with a lot of height or bulk height at the crown, which lengthen the face even more. Instead, try cuts with wispy bangs and thicker hair at the nape for balance. Similarly, try updos with more volume or width than height, perhaps with curls cascading over the brow.

    You Go, Curl!

    Waves, curls, and lots of body are great for this face shape, as they widen the face and add a bit of spunk and pizzazz to otherwise fragile-seeming features. Go for spiral curls that are just a little bit messy, or pair tighter curls with a sleek texture for nice contrast.

    Ready for your close-up yet? With these tips, you just might be!

    Take care of yourselves,
