Best Men’s Hairstyles For Diamond Faces

These are the best men’s hairstyles for diamond face shapes.

The most obvious feature of diamond face shape is the chiselled jawline. Again, this is considered an extremely masculine face shape. It differs to a square shape as your whole face shape will be angular and defined.

When it comes to hair, you can opt to have more length on top to add shape around your face. Something like a high fade with a sweeping fringe will add more width to the top of the hair whilst accentuating your cheekbones.

Or, perhaps style your hair right back off your face in a faux hawk. Just don’t style your hair too high or it will start to feel boxy.

The trick is to add loads of texture to the hair, breaking up hard lines and adding more movement into the style.

Johnny Depp: 90s Grown Out Taper Hairstyle

Johnny Depp’s 90s grown out taper hairstyle is a classic, but for a good reason. He used to keep his hair short, but with just enough length to style it textured.

If you’re recreating this classic look, you might want to add some texture with sea salt spray and finish with a pomade to create that 90s high-shine finish.

How To

  • To recreate Johnny Depp’s hairstyle at home spritz a texturising or sea salt spray on freshly washed hair.
  • When your hair is dry and styled the way you want, warm some pomade between your palms until soft and then run through hair sparingly from root to ends to give the style hold and a 90s sheen.

Zayn Malik: Buzz Cut

Zayn Malik, of One Direction fame, certainly loves to experiment with his style; in fashion and with his hair. He regularly goes back to the buzz cut and fully shaves his head. Fortunately, he pulls it off with ease.

How To

  • Go for a grade 1 or 2 all over, using clippers.
  • Alternatively, using the clippers, fade from a grade 0 at the neck, moving up towards the crown, and then leave the top slightly longer.

Matt Bomer: Natural Wavy Hairstyle

This is a great length of hairstyle on Matt Bomer.

Working with his natural texture and hair movement gives this hairstyle a really relaxed and effortless finish. Big fan!

How To

  • If you have naturally wavy hair, you can leave it to dry naturally.
  • Alternatively, if you need more volume, apply a mousse to damp hair and use a hair dryer.
  • Use a small amount of clay or pomade to add definition to the tips of the hair.

  • Tight and neat on the sides.

Machine Gun Kelly: Bleached Blonde Sweeping Fringe Hairstyle

Never one to be afraid of experimenting with different hair colours, Machine Gun Kelly’s latest look is a dyed bleached blonde hue especially with a  side sweeping fringe and choppy disconnected cut.

To be honest, it’s a bit ‘punk pop boyband circa 2002’ for MFH’s tastes, but Machine Gun Kelly has definitely got the punk attitude to pull it off…

If you want to take the plunge and dye your hair blonde, invest in some purple shampoo to beat brassiness and deep conditioning treatments to banish any dryness.

How To

  • To keep maintain your bleached blonde hair, make sure you use a purple shampoo. This will stop it from going a brassy/yellow colour.
  • Bleaching your hair can dry your hair out. Use a nourishing treatment or hair mask to hydrate and nourish hair.
  • When styling like Machine Gun Kelly don’t work with freshly washed hair. The singer’s style is all about rock n’ roll, lived-in hair. Use clay, powder, or wax to create hold and texture.
