There’s certainly no need to cover a large forehead. Studies have actually shown that people are generally more attracted to women with large foreheads. Regardless, sometimes covering up a large forehead can create balance with your face shape. Remember that a high forehead doesn’t mean you have an oblong face – round, oval, and square faces can have a high forehead so make sure that you choose a hairstyle that compliments both your face shape and a high forehead.
Side-Swept Bangs is an Obvious Choice
The most obvious way to disguise a large forehead is with side-swept bangs. A side-swept fringe breaks up long lines of your face shape and hides a portion of you’re forehead. A side-swept bang works well for bobs, crops and long locks.
Try Layered Locks
Not all layered hairstyles work with high foreheads. Go with medium or long hairstyles that allow you to integrate layers at the eye and cheekbones. Having layers at these two spots creates strong, horizontal lines to combat the vertical line of a high forehead. Make your layers appear fuller by spritzing them with dry shampoo spray or styling them with volume-enhancing mousse. Finish this look with a side part or bangs, but skip the long, streaky highlights that narrow your face.
Wavy Hairstyles Create Width and Balance
Rather than worrying about a cut or color – you can simply change the texture of your hair. Wavy (or curly) hairstyles will create width around your face which will help balance a high forehead and they will also draw attention away from your forehead and towards your cheekbones, jaw and of course, your hair.
Wispy Blunt Bangs Will Shorten your Face Shape
This is best for women with a square or oblong face shape or women with hard features because it is a soft fringe that will create balance with a long shape. A wispy bang is great paired with long hair because it will shorten your face shape and cover your high forehead making it appear smaller.
Curtain Bangs Can Work Very Well
The Bardot bang is perfect for women who don’t want the side part with side bangs or the maintenance of blunt frontal bangs. These longer bangs will cover both sides of your forehead making it appear shorter and also create width near the bottom portion of your forehead for a perfectly balanced look.
