Choosing the right hairstyle for you means considering some basic elements such as face shape, personality, but also different flaws you want to hide. For example, hiding a large forehead using your hair can become a serious challenge. If you are dealing with a big forehead, there are certain hairstyles that can make wonders for you, and other things you need to avoid.
Having a large forehead doesn’t necessarily have to be seen as an embarrassing thing. Nowadays, there are various hairstyling and makeup methods you can use in order to camouflage any flaw, including a big forehead. Therefore, choosing a dark makeup, contouring your eyes, or opting for perfect bangs can contribute to lessening your forehead length. There are so many celebrities dealing with this problem and they still managed to make it less visible.
A large forehead elongates your face shape too. Therefore, you need to break the length and balance volumes. The perfect hairstyles should be medium to long ones. Try to stay away from straight hairstyles that have no shape and sharp edges that will only make your face look even longer and go instead for layers, soft waves and bangs. Avoid also short hairstyles that can be totally unflattering and straight hairstyles. A medium-length hairstyle with volume is the ideal choice for a large forehead. If you make a side parting with hair falling on one side of your face, you’ll get the maximum covering effect.
A large forehead can become a major problem as it makes your face look narrow. Whether you have short or long hair, there is one important rule and that is covering your forehead. One of the easiest ways to handle this issue is by getting bangs that will minimize the forehead length. Choosing flattering bangs is not a simple thing to do, as you need to take into consideration the entire face shape and not only your long forehead. Classic bangs or side-swept ones can do the trick. Bangs balance your face shape offering a very studied touch to your hairstyle, but you should keep in mind that they need frequent maintenance and daily styling especially if you don’t have straight hair.
Choosing the right bangs can be a tricky business especially if you have curly hair. It is not impossible to get bangs on curly hair, but you need to find one style that suits you. For example, you can straight your bangs and leave the rest of your hair curly. This way, your bangs will fall across the big forehead covering it. If you have straight long hair, you can get gradual tapering to the sides and make bangs blend with the rest of your hair.
If you have a heart-shaped face, with a wide forehead and sharp chin, opt for a hairstyle that creates the illusion of minimizing the volume at the crown of your head and at ear level. Adding curls or waves at chin level you’ll balance the look and get an effect of roundness to your chin. Avoid hairstyles that accentuate even more the heart-shaped look, such as very short hairstyles, ponytails and updos that leave your face free.
In order to hide a large forehead you can apply other tricks, such as plucking your eyebrows and giving them a triangular shape without going to extremes. Also, for a very prominent forehead, you can use darker colors for your eye makeup, and therefore, draw all the attention towards them and away from your forehead. Another successful trick to draw the attention to your hair is by adding highlights.
