Hairstyles for broad foreheads: 13 ways to hide them


We hear a lot of girls say they want to cover their large foreheads. Well, here are a few hairstyles for broad foreheads for you peeps.

Side fringe hairstyles for broad foreheads

The first way you can use your hair to camouflage your broad forehead is by letting more hair fall around your face and framing it to minimize the amount of forehead visible. Get a side fringe a la Chitrangada Singh. Side part your hair the way that best suits you and get your stylist to cut thick side bangs that fall over your eyes. Either blow dry it and incorporate it in the rest of your hair or let it fall around your face if you’re tying it up like Tamanna in this article on hair extensions.

#1: Bangs for broad foreheads

Another thing to do is get bangs that cover up all of your forehead!

Get thick bangs cut straight across your forehead, either above or slightly below your eyebrows. This kind of fringe can be worn left loose with all hair lengths or can be backcombed a little to give volume while the rest of the hair is tied up or in a bun.

You may also choose to wear a hair band or other satin hair accessory like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl!

#2: Flicks for broad foreheads

Flicks are another option to give a slight deception of a hidden forehead. Even a few wispy strands can do the trick, taking attention away from that large canvas that is your forehead. Try out this thick-flick look sported by actress Angelina Jolie.  To make it more interesting, blow dry it with a big barreled brush and separate strands with hair wax.
