Did you know that everyone has a different shape to their face? There are six face shapes - oval, rectangle, round, square, heart, and diamond. With an accurate analysis, you can figure out what the shape of your face is.

Why would you want to know your face shape?

Because there are certain hairstyles and accessories that look best with each face shape. If you want to bring out the best version of yourself, you're in the right place. This article details the features of a diamond-shaped face.

Think you have a diamond face shape? First, read the Vocal article, "How to Determine Your Face Shape" for the three steps you can take to know for sure.

Once you have determined that your face shape is diamond, read on to learn which hairstyles and accessories are most flattering. Below you can review the traits of a diamond face shape.

Hairstyles For Diamond Faces

With a diamond face shape, you want to show off your great cheekbones. If you want a short hairstyle, go with an edgy, sharp bob that comes right below your chin. Not only will this frame your face and highlight your cheekbones, but it will also make your jawline appear stronger.

For long hairstyles, go with a blunt, super-straight look or try a layered style. If you want to try bangs with this face shape, try small or side-part bangs that don’t cover too much of your small forehead.

Glasses For Diamond Faces

Diamond-shaped faces look best in cat-eye, oval, narrow, rimless, or top-heavy frames. This helps widen the narrow forehead area. Soften the cheekbones by selecting a frame with gentle curves that is no wider than the width of the cheekbones. This goes for both eyeglasses and sunglasses.

Hats For Diamond Faces

If you have a diamond face, you have a lot of width around your cheekbones and eyes but have a more narrow forehead and jaw. You don't want to overpower the mid-section of your face or create the illusion of an even wider face.

The goal when picking out a hat for a diamond-shaped face is to find a shape that creates more length. This can be accomplished with hats worn farther back on your head. Try styling your beanies farther back and go with hats that have shallow crowns.

Jewelry For Diamond Faces

Because of having a narrow forehead and chin, with a diamond face you want to soften and lengthen. Dangly earrings and long necklaces with no sharp details help to balance out your look.

Stay away from bulky pieces that will make your already defined cheekbones appear stronger, and instead go for jewelry that adds length in a delicate way. Avoid styles with lots of edges and angles and look for circular, round designs.

Diamond Face Shape Review

A diamond face is wide in the middle and narrow at the top and bottom. The goal is to balance out the face by adding width near the chin and forehead. Hairstyles and accessories should soften the face yet highlight the strong cheekbones.

Top heavy glasses help to widen the top half of the face, while gently rounded styles help soften it. Hats and jewelry should elongate without drowning out the forehead and chin.
