Half up and Half down with Side Bangs

hair,hairstyle,black hair,long hair,beauty, This is actually one of my go-to looks. It draws the eye up and away from your forehead, but still gives you a polished and sophisticated look. Start by pulling the top half of your hair up and back, securing it with barrettes or bobby pins. Then comb your bangs to the side and spritz the whole thing with a dab of hairspray.


Try Some Curls All over

hair,color,hairstyle,long hair,brown hair, This is especially great if you have shorter hair. The curls will create visual interest all over your head, distracting people from the size of your forehead. Even if you have longer hair, this look will work. Stick with the side bangs here too, which provide a bit of coverage on your forehead so it isn’t so obvious.


Go with a Side Braid – It’s Always Cute

hair,human hair color,face,hairstyle,blond, A side braid really works for just about face shape or forehead size. The trick is to do a loose and tousled braid rather than a really tight and severe one. That way your forehead isn’t on display because your hair helps distract and create a look that takes the emphasis away from your head. Use a cute elastic or barrette to secure your side braid.


Try an Updo with Bangs

hair,black hair,face,hairstyle,hair coloring, Nothing covers up a big forehead better than a really good set of bangs. You want wispy bangs rather than a severe straight cut, but combined with a cute chignon or top knot, you get a look that looks fabulous and won’t leave people whispering about how huge your forehead is. Take it from me – this look works! I use it all the time!


Parted in the Middle with Lots of Layers

hair,human hair color,face,person,blond, I tend to avoid a middle part because I feel like it only emphasizes my big forehead, but the experts say this look works if you choose a heavily layered haircut. It helps give your entire head of hair some volume, which helps balance out the size of a large forehead. This look is super easy to maintain and style so it’s perfect for girls who don’t want to spend a ton of time on their hair in the morning.


If you're rocking this style, adding soft bangs can also work wonders, further disguising a broad forehead. The layered texture will seamlessly integrate with your tresses, framing your face elegantly without the need for constant trims. Whether you choose a straight texture or a wavy vibe, your layered locks will keep the look fresh and effortless. And remember, a spritz of volumizing mousse can really enhance that bounce in your hair, ensuring you step out with confidence every single day!


The Long Bob Always Works

eyewear,glasses,vision care,hair,sunglasses, Tyra Banks wears this look well and she has a rather large forehead. It doesn’t detract from her beauty though because she knows how to wear her hair. Ask your stylist to give you a long bob and you’ll look fabulous too. It’s easy and works for a variety of face shapes. Hooray!


Long and Parted on the Side

hair,clothing,black hair,long hair,brown hair, This is a great look for girls with a big forehead. It’s easy to style and gives your look something to distract from your head. A side part also gives your hair volume, helping create the illusion of a smaller forehead. You can’t go wrong with this look!

Do you have a big forehead? What style do you like?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I have a "4" head. I can fit 4 fingers across of fairly large forehand. I usually wear my long bangs to the side. I do like the middle part but I think it makes my eyes appear more rounder? Wear a longer or shorter bang if your self conscious about the size of your forehead. Or, use a medium sized head band and push your bangs down with that.

I rally like the extreme side part. I love the middle part and I love side swept bangs. I have a really large forehead.

Yes I have the last haircut I have tried a middle part but it doesn't look quite right

Growing up I was always picked on for the size of my forehead and all throughout middle school I tried everything to cover them from bangs to bandanas. Once I started high school I started to be more comfortable in my own skin...literally. I no longer felt like I should worry about it because although it made me different, it was part of me, just like my freckles. Once I was happy with my natural appearance I stopped wanting to hide it. I grew out my bangs and usually wear my hair in a middle part, or side with half of it up. I like to show my whole face. Because it's what makes me, me :)

I have big forehead and try to cover it with a buff on top and leave rest of the hair. These hair styles doesn’t cover the forehead in first two pics and rest are all common ways for hair do. If I can get something else will be helpful. Thanks :-)

Big Butt...

Will try some of these ideas but it would have been better if the first two pictures also showed the face so that we could see the whole effect 😊

Am going to try the last one, but I have to agree that showing the faces would've been ideal.

I'm not the only one!
