33 Flattering Big Forehead Hairstyles for Pretty Girls

What’s the first thing anyone says when they see your close-shot selfies? Since you can’t answer me immediately, I’ll just tell you mine. It’s my big forehead. Hairstyles never seem to help matters too. Even when I’m wearing a coiffure that covers most of my forehead, people still notice it.

Some ladies feel uncomfortable about this. To worsen the case, social media memes don’t help matters. If they aren’t accusing ladies with big foreheads of being stubborn, they’re accusing us of storing all our memories in there.

If you think this piece you’re reading will suggest hairstyles that will only hide your big forehead, I’m sorry. You’re on the wrong page.

As a member of the forehead gang myself, I can’t do that. I don’t even see my big forehead as a flaw to start with. I count it as one of my God-given assets and I’m proud of it. 

It’s why I never hesitate to wear coiffures that accentuate it. And when people talk about my forehead, a surge of pride overwhelms me, even if some refer to it as a billboard.

So, yeah, sis. Stop seeing your broad forehead as an insecurity. You gotta accept yours and wear hairstyles that complement it today if you dive in with me.

Two kinds of hairstyles are what you need:

  • Hairstyles that take the focus away from your forehead to your other beautiful facial features. 
  • Hairstyles that flaunt your forehead and make it prominent enough to gather attention.

Whichever one you go for works well in enhancing your beauty. Now, let’s check these big forehead hairstyles out.

Gorgeous Big Forehead Hairstyles

1. Pixie Cuts

There was a time people called this hairstyle Rihanna. Back then, most pictures of this coiffure would be Rihanna rocking it to events. And guess what.

Rihanna has a big forehead too.

If this coiffure looked (and still looks) good on her, why do you think you’re any different?  In fact, if there’s any hairdo I wear that gets me many compliments, it’s a pixie cut.

Pixie cuts are great at hiding your forehead (if it has a fringe) or flashing bits of it (if the bangs are side-swept).

2. Shuku Hairstyles

Shuku hairstyles are like cornrows only that it’s styled into an updo that further takes attention to other facial features. This style doesn’t conceal your forehead at all. It brings it to the full glare of people and I love it for that reason.

You can add dangling box braids by the side of your shuku, curl the tip, accessorize with beads, etc. The stylish tweaks for this hairstyle are limitless and we included some of them in our catalog of shuku hairstyles. Check it out and see.

3. Ponytail

Similar to shuku, ponytails frame your face and make your forehead more noticeable. You can go for a braided ponytail or one made with long or short weaves.

When your hairstylist gels all your hair to the back and attaches your weave to achieve the ponytail, you’ll be a delight to behold.

You can go for a no-part ponytail, a center-part, side-parted one, or any other one as included in our ponytail hairstyle guide.

4. Ghana Weaving

Because you can always restyle the braids to fall across your face and cover a bit of your forehead or pack them all up into a donut that shows off your head.

It’s that flexible.

6. Messy Curls with Bangs

Curly hairstyles are gorgeous and comfy. And when you add bangs to yours, rest assured your forehead will be away from prying eyes.

Go for this big forehead hairstyle if you want something unique. If you want, you can shun the bangs and opt for a side or center part instead.

7. Cornrows

Cornrows will never go out of style. Yes, you read that clearly. From the days of our ancestors, they’ve been the go-to hairstyle to keep your hair in place and not all over your face.

The best part is cornrows bare your forehead for the world to see. But don’t worry about that. They’ll be too focused on the details of each braid to notice the billboard on your head (winks).

8. Senegalese Twists

This hairstyle isn’t just easy to install. It also has a unique rope-like appearance that dangles around your head and makes a style statement.

You can never go wrong with a bob sitting pretty on your head.

And when you add a fringe to the mix, know for sure your forehead is in good hands. Because you’ll either part your bob to show your temple or cover the bangs to hide it.

10. Face-framing Weaves

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
