All Worth The Look
Did you know that the diamond-shaped face is quite difficult to spot?
It is one of the most uncommon of all face shapes. The diamond-shaped face has a small pointed chin, wide cheekbones, and a hairline that peaks at the top center of a narrow forehead. Since we are accustomed to look at celebrity faces, there are quite a few we pick out as having this shape of face. So here are some of them and the great hairstyles that they rock.
Jennifer Lopez has a deep side part and long side bangs that flatter her defined features, while lengthening the appearance of her face. She also has a lot of volume in her hair. She softened her forehead, making it look less high and narrow with short wispy bangs or side-swept bangs. Halle Berry’s wavy lob has that ‘balanced fullness.’ Instead of her volume gradually decreasing into thin ends, her hair maintains fullness towards her chin.
If you have a strong chin and jawline, like Tyra Banks’s, you can add some soft face-framing layers to balance out your look; use frizz-defying oil to make strands look sleek and shiny like hers. Rihanna’s face can be classified as diamond. She sports a side part that lengthens the look of her face while still keeping her high cheekbones on display. With this style, face framing bangs are great to accentuate the cheekbones while balancing out a narrow forehead.
Serena Williams’s diamond-shaped face is complemented by a full head of gorgeous, springy curls. They tend to lift her face, making her look youthful, and radiant. Kerry Washington’s high ponytail is swept- back and volumized at the crown of her head, which elongates her face and widens a narrow forehead, putting all her features on display. Kelly Rowland’s pixie cut with soft side swept bangs is another great style to accentuate the more prominent features on an angular, diamond shaped face.
Vanessa Hudgens’s side-swept bangs always look amazing on her diamond-shaped face; and longer bobs are great as well. The idea is to open up the face by adding a fringe, which will complement the bone structure. Megan Fox is known for her long hair parted in the center. Her long, wavy strands cascade down both sides of her face, which accentuate her sharp cheekbones and narrow chin.
