Are you a diamond in the rough? Your diamond-shaped face can be accentuated by the right haircut. We caught up with renowned hair stylist Linda Miller to help you understand which styles enhance your unique features, complement your face shape, and suit your hair texture.

Understanding Your Diamond Face Shape

While you may think that a diamond-shaped face is rare, it’s actually more common than you think. It is characterized by a narrow forehead, wide cheekbones, and a narrow chin. The goal is to soften the angles and elongate the face. “The right haircut can help balance the width of the cheekbones and make your face look longer,” explains Miller.

Ideal Haircuts for Different Hair Types

For those with thin hair, Miller recommends a layered bob. This style adds body, while short layers around the crown of the head add height. For thick or curly hair, a layered haircut with soft bangs will work well. Miller points out that “fringe bangs that hit the eyebrow help to soften the cheekbones.” Long layers are best for wavy hair to elongate the face.
