8 Best Haircuts For Diamond Face – Men Who Want To Look Dapper


What do most professional barbers do when choosing the best hairstyles for men with diamond face shapes? 

Well, speaking from experience, I always try to make my client’s forehead appear to be of equal width with their cheekbones.

However, this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule:

Your beard style choice should depend on what you want to achieve with your face.

So, do this:

Imagine the results you want to achieve with your diamond face

Done? Awesome… 

Now go through the gallery below of the eight best haircuts for the diamond face shape to choose what works for you

In this post, I will also give;

  • A step-by-step guide to confirming if you have a diamond face shape.
  • And answers to frequently asked questions about the male’s diamond-shaped face.

So, first things first:

How to Tell Whether You Are Truly A Diamond-Shape Man?


Grab a pen, notebook, and measuring tape. Note; inspect your tape to confirm that its calibration isn’t broken.

Now, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the width of the forehead from one corner of the hairline to the other.
  2. Measure the distance between the two cheekbones.
  3. Size the jawline and the longitudinal length of the face from the hairline to the chin.
  4. Finally, measure the width of the chin.
  5. Write all these numbers down.

If the face is truly diamond in shape, these measurements should show:

  • The cheekbones’ width is the longest
  • The length of the face is either equal to or smaller than the width of the cheekbones
  • The jawline is shorter than the length of the face
  • The forehead is shorter or equal to the jawline
  • The width of the chin is the shortest portion of the face

With that confirmed, let’s head over to the…

Complete List Of The 8 Best Men’s Hairstyles For Diamond-Shaped Faces

1) Buzz Cut


A Buzz Cut tops virtually every list of the best masculine haircuts for men. It is a short haircut where the hair is trimmed evenly across the head for a military look.


This haircut is one of the easiest cuts to achieve at home with a simple hair clipper. But even as basic as it looks, a Buzz Cut offers you options with its variations such as Butch Cut, Burr Cut, and Induction Cut.

2) Pushed Back Short Hair


With this one, think about relaxed Pompadours without the faded sides. This versatile style is easy to achieve as a DIY. And can be done at home with a wide-toothed comb

Guess what:

You can achieve a round or triangular face shape with it. But that depends on the brushing angle of the sides

And if you want a square look, you can grow a Circle beard or French Cut on your pointy chin.

3) Man Bun With Beard


Are you fond of pairing a full beard with considerably long hair? Then this style is a fun way to get a manly, hipster look with ease. 

Here’s the thing:

A Man Bun hairstyle accentuates your forehead to align with the protruding, sharp cheekbones. Meanwhile, the full beard gives body to the pointy chin.

4) Classic Side Part


A Classic Side Part extends the width of the forehead. And with a textured one, you can enhance the overall features of the face

Even better:

There are no restrictions with this style.

You can get creative by experimenting with different parting styles to see what works best for you.

5) Quiffs With Fade


Do you want a rock-and-roll, punk style without neglecting the needed balance between a short forehead and wide cheekbones? 

Then, this is for you. 

Quiffs are some of the best short hairstyles for men with diamond face shapes. Its heavy top gives the forehead a broader appearance


When you add sideburns to it, the attention previously given to the pointy chin moves to the sides of the face.

6) Pompadour


In all honesty, the most trendy way to rock a Pompadour is to match it with Taper/Bald Fade. Unfortunately, a Skin Fade exposes the sharply slant sides and angles of a diamond-shaped face.

So, what now?

Well, to avoid this, the side hair is left untrimmed. This way, the sharp angles of the cheeks appear to blend in with the rest of the face.

7) Faux Hawk With Beard


A Faux hawk does more than close the long gap between the wide cheekbones and the narrow forehead

If you’re a beardless man, this style’s spiky hair on top can elongate your face to form an oval face shape.

Pro Tip:

Matching a Faux Hawk with a full beard softens the sharpness of the face

Moreso, this straightens out the angle of the strong jawline. And in the end, you wind up with an almost perfectly-square face.

8) Messy Fringe 


The Messy Fringe is, undoubtedly, a cool and trendy haircut for diamond-faced males. It is more about volume and texture

You know:

With bangs at the forehead connecting to a Medium-Fade on the sides and back, you get an easy-going, yet rugged, look.

Optionally, you can complement your Fringe with a thick stubble for added masculinity. 

And that’s it. 

The complete list of the 8 men’s hairstyles for diamond face types.

In Conclusion


The ideal way to get a gentlemanly look with a diamond face is to widen the forehead to match the protruding cheeks in width.


You can achieve more than that, depending on the hairstyle you choose. In this discovery post, I have reviewed the 8 best haircuts for diamond faces in 2022. 

Fun fact:

Most of the items on this list are also oval face haircuts. Thus, they’re versatile and look great on men with different face shapes. 

So, gentlemen:

Which of these is your best pick? What other haircut have you rocked with on your diamond face shape? 

Let’s discuss this in the comment section below.

Hi, great article. I have diamond face shape except my face is much longer than the width of the cheekbones. My forehead is quite long too.

Is there any suggestions for this type of long/narrow diamond shape. I have also very strong and coarse hair.
