Many of us have been in a situation where a haircut that we love does not work for our forehead. Maybe you’re trying to grow your hair out, but it’s impossible to get it past your eyebrows. Or maybe you have bangs, and they refuse to stay put because of the shape of your face. There are so many haircuts that will cover up a big forehead. We’ve found some of our favorites below – all with images tutorials so you can easily find one perfect for you.
Hairstyles that make your forehead smaller
Women with large foreheads know the heartache of picking a hairstyle that won’t make their forehead look even more prominent. But don’t worry, we’ve compiled some ideas for you to help your search:
- If you have bangs and want to grow them out, try a dry shampoo or texturizing spray at the roots before blow-drying to give it some lift.
- You could also use one of those headbands with small holes in it that go on just over your eyebrows but under your hairline. This will cover up any visible forehead area without having to do anything drastic like shaving off all of your hair or wearing a hat every day.
Ladies with big foreheads know what it’s like to have a forehead that is so large, they feel as though their whole face is just one giant forehead. Sadly, many of the styles and cuts we can wear on our heads don’t work for us because of these huge protrusions at the top. But there are some hairstyles we can rock.
Is long or short hair better for big foreheads?
Do you have a big forehead and wonder if long or short hair is better for your face shape? Here’s the answer. Longer hair will cover up more of that pesky forehead, but it can also be an inconvenience because it takes longer to dry. Short hair won’t provide as much coverage, but it will keep your neck from getting too hot in the warmer months. The best option depends on how much time you have to style your hair and how often you want to wash it.
It’s been a long time coming, but finally, we have an answer to the age-old question: which is better for big foreheads? When it comes to hair length, it depends on your preference and face shape. For those with round faces, short hair can help make your forehead appear smaller. On the other hand, if you have an oval-shaped face, either length can work depending on how you style it! Finally, some relief from this age-old dilemma.
