Styles to Flatter Your Diamond Face Shape

Your face is widest at the cheekbones and narrow at both the chin and forehead.

Your main style aims are...

...To create the illusion of a broader chin and forehead.


Go for...

  • Styles that are full at your temples and chin

  • Hair close to your head in the cheekbone area

  • Slightly off-center parting

  • Bangs (fringe) that sweep to the side

  • Medium length styles

  • Hair swept up into an up-do

  • Styles with symmetrical lines

  • Very short styles

  • Center parting

  • Styles that add fullness at your cheeks

  • Close hair cut at your temples

  • Too much volume at the top of your head

Glasses (Eyeglasses and Sunglasses)

The best glasses for your face shape are...

  • No wider than your cheekbones

  • Frames with soft curves such as oval shapes

  • Styles that add width at the brow, for example, with decoration or color at the top of the frame

  • Frames that are narrower on the bottom and wider at the top such as cat-eye shapes


Choose hats that make your forehead appear broader. For example, hats with large brims.

Makeup Tips

  • Apply a slightly lighter shade of foundation at your temples and jaw-line to make them appear broader

  • Apply blush to the apple (ball) of your cheek, no lower than the bottom of your nose, and blend towards the center of your ear


Choose shapes that add width to your jaw-line. Your best shapes are narrower at the top and wider at the bottom, such as...
  • Tear drops

  • Pear shapes

  • Triangle shapes

  • Ovals
