If you don’t fall under any of these categories, perhaps you have a diamond face shape – the most uncommon of all. Here are some hairstyles that can work for you.
1. Short Crop
Cropping your hair will open up your face and highlight your cheekbones. A short crop or even a will frame your face and soften sharper features, such as your chin. Ask your stylist to add side-swept bangs or a deep side part to frame your face.
Length is a good option for a diamond face shape because of its versatility. You can have it long and wavy with a deep side part and lots of volume on the roots, or sleek, straight, and polished.

3. High Ponytail
While not a haircut, a sleek updo is one hairstyle that can enhance your diamond face shape. Wearing a ponytail draws attention to your high cheekbones and other beautiful features. It also elongates the face and narrows a wide forehead. To cop the look, make sure the sides of your ponytail have less volume to create a slender look around the sides.
4. Face-framing Layers
If you don’t want to let go of your long hair, get a that tapers off around the chin. It’s an excellent way to update your look without making a dramatic change. Layers will also add movement and soften your appearance. Add face-framing bangs to accentuate your face angles and balance your features.
5. Loose Curls

Get a sleek lob with fringe that frames your face while adding fullness to your chin. Blunt baby bangs will also give the illusion of widening a narrow forehead. Sunsilk Expert-Perfect Straight Shampoo will help smoothen your locks and keep them straight as they dry.
7. Volumized Curly Lob
A lob will also work with volumized curls. It’s a fun and fresh style that oozes personality. It has a youthful and playful vibe that can make anyone look more radiant. Want more volume? Try air-drying your hair and scrunching it with your fingers, going up from the ends to your roots.
8. Minimal Half Updo
You can achieve this look by using a texturizing spray and backcombing the hair at the crown to create a subtle bouffant. The style adds height and interest to a diamond face shape. It can also soften a pointy chin. Try this for a more relaxed take on an evening look or to dress up a casual daytime outfit.
9. Feathered Bangs
Apart from side-swept bangs, feathered bangs look great on diamond-shaped faces. To make this look work, ruffle your bangs at the center to give your forehead some breathing room. It creates a softer alternative to a full fringe, which tends to look severe.
