We get it—styling your hair when you have a big forehead can be a daunting task. Aren’t you invariably trying to find that perfect hairdo that will hide it? While brushing your hair back is a big no-no, there are surely some hairstyles and haircuts that help you conceal your wide forehead smartly. Want to know what these are? Here’s a roundup...
tresemme smooth shine shampoo and conditioner

While experimenting with hairstyles is crucial to hide that big forehead, you need to first ensure that your hair is nourished and healthy before you opt for a hairstyle or haircut. For that, you need a product that will thoroughly cleanse your hair and induce the right ingredients in your scalp. We suggest you opt for the TRESemmé Smooth & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. This range is intensely moisturising and therefore, helps in calming frizz and flyaways. Moreover, this product contains vitamin H and silk protein—the kind of range designed for moisturising rough hair! Once you’ve washed your hair with this range, air dry your hair and then opt for the following simple hairstyles/haircuts...

Volumising cascading layers
 

Volumising cascading layers

There’s nothing sexier than voluminous layers. And cascading layers with a middle parting work very well to hide a big forehead. But make sure you use a texturizing or volumising spray for that added lift without which your hair won’t get the drama it needs.

Short hair with wavy layers

If you have wavy hair, you’re in luck. Just cut your hair short and make sure your hairstylist gives you short layers in the front so your waves fall in such a way that half your forehead is concealed and the length of your face is reduced. An added tip would be to lift your hair using a dry shampoo to give it a textured feel. After all, dry shampoos are our best friends when our scalp looks greasy or when we’re looking to give a voluminous look to any hairdo.

Curtain bangs
 

Curtain bangs

Remember how we told you that curtain bangs were the trend du jour? Well, there’s good news for those of you with broad foreheads—you can easily conceal your forehead with these curtain-like fringes. And haven’t we always been told that nothing covers up a big forehead like bangs? We suggest going for curtain bangs that will cover the sides of your forehead giving it an illusion of being shorter. Also, it’s just the right hairstyle for you if you don’t have the time and energy to maintain full frontal bangs. Lazy girls, are you listening?

Textured side braid
 

Textured side braid

Tired of leaving your hair loose and want something experimental instead? Go for a side parted braid. But make sure the sides cover the upper corners of your forehead perfectly for you. If you happen to have limp hair, things are worse for you because limp hair and a big forehead can give you tad too many bad hair days. Precisely why we suggest you go for a texturising spray to add some volume to your side braid so the focus shifts from your hairline.
