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.

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.
- To keep maintain your bleached blonde hair, make sure you use a purple shampoo. This will stop it from going a brassy/yellow colour.
