Diamond and Heart Face Shape

I've placed both Diamond and Heart face shape together on this page because they have two things in common: Wide cheekbones and narrow jaw line.

Diamond face shape is almost an oval where the widest point hits the midpoint of the sides of the face. The hairline and chin are noticeably narrower than the center (the widest part of the face).
Heart face shape
resembles the diamond. The only difference is that both forehead and midpoint are wider than your lower face.
Styling Focus for Both Face Shapes
Hair styles if you have heart face shape: Chin-length or longer styles. Side-parted hair styles. Swept-forward layers around the upper face but with gently wispy bangs. A chin length bob also looks great as it creates a balanced look by giving fullness where you need it -- the jawline.
Hair styles if you have a diamond face shape: Almost everything works with your face (as long as you are a true diamond with wider midpoints and narrow forehead and jaw line). You can wear shorter styles, however if you may need to leave weight in the back nape area like a heart shaped face. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more delicate chin line.

Square Face Shape
“Hair styling Tricks that Flatter Your SquareThe square face shape gives an overall impression of strength. It's a sexy face shape. Think Angelina Jolie! Face Shape"

You probably have a very strong jaw line and might appear a bit "masculine" around the lower part of your face. This shape normally has an angular jaw and hairline of approximately the same width as the jaw line.
There are two versions of this face shape which are the rectangular (elongated square) like Angelina Jolie and Katie Holmes, and square-square like Naomi Watts'.
Styling Focus for Square Face Shape
If you're not happy about the strong impression of your jaw, try softening your jaw line with soft and curved shapes. Angular motifs should be avoided as it can enhance your square shape. If you have a very angular face shape, you might want to distract from the edges and elongate it by following my advice for round face shape. How?
Hair cuts: Long hair like curtains along the sides of your face. Long layers with sideswept bangs. Curly hair soften the strong lines, remember to keep the length below the jaw line.
Soften the sharp edges and angles of the face with muted layers and rounded hairstyles.  Try a side-swept fringe worn with long layered waves that play up cheekbonese.
