How to Hide Your Big Forehead

A big forehead might leave you feeling self-conscious. The beauty tricks to hide a large forehead are limited to finding a new hairstyle. Hairstyles with fringe can make a forehead look smaller when styled appropriately. Hairstyles with the hair pulled back can make your forehead appear even larger -- so avoid pulling all your hair back in a ponytail or similar style. If you don't have enough hair to cut fringe, another option is to wear accessories that cover your forehead.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Look for hairstyles with fringe that you like. Bangs that are wispy, full or side-swept will make your forehead look smaller. Choose one that you prefer. Print pictures of hairstyles you like.

  2. 2

    Visit a hair stylist and show him your pictures. Explain that you'd like to hide your forehead and ask for his opinion.

  3. 3

    Style your fringe each day, and don't pull them back. Avoid teasing your fringe to stand up close to your forehead, because this can make your forehead look larger.

  4. 4

    Wear a headband around your head. Headbands don't match everyone's personal style, so try a headscarf, wrapped around the top of your head, or a bandanna, placed low on your forehead. This can draw attention away from the size of your forehead.

  5. 5

    Wear a baseball cap. The rim of the hat will cover your forehead, making your head look smaller. If your forehead is large, you might need to wear an adjustable or custom-fitted hat.
