Like a widow’s peak, a big forehead is something that some of us are born with. And it may come as a surprise that you can actually use a large forehead for several trendy looks.
You may prefer to cover up your forehead, or you may want to brush your hair out of your forehead. Either way, you can get some incredible results with the right hairstyle.
Here are our favorite hairstyles for men with big foreheads.
No bells, no whistles, just style. This simple fringe style covers a large forehead while keeping the hair short all around, and it works especially well with thick hair.
Long Messy Fringe
Borrowing elements from longer, asymmetrical looks, this hairstyle features a long fringe that adds movement. This style is great for wavy hair or for any guy who likes longer hair.
A full yet short head of hair and a slightly side-swooping fringe are the key elements of this look. This is another great choice for men with a big forehead who like to keep it simple.
Short Curly Style
This close-cut style adds movement to the top of a larger forehead. The cut also highlights naturally curly or wavy hair, and all of the hair gets tousled a bit.
Side Swept Fringe
Here’s a nice hairstyle for big foreheads that is both fashionable and functional. The fringe swoops down and to the side, covering the forehead and blending in with the rest of the style.
Slicked Back Style
Instead of covering the forehead, this hairstyle slicks all the hair back, exposing the entire forehead. Surprisingly, this doesn’t make the forehead look bigger––instead, the style creates a nice frame of hair. Perfect for curly or wavy hair.
The focal point of this style is the textured fringe that adds visual dynamics to create the appearance of a smaller forehead. Conservative yet appealing, this style is great for work or school.
Short Brush Up Style
The brush-up hairstyle is one of the more unique hairstyles for big foreheads because it adds a unique edge. By creating a ridge above the forehead, the hair draws the eye upwards over the forehead.
Asymmetrical Side Swept Fringe
Asymmetry can help a large forehead immensely. The variety of angles in this hairstyle and the side swept direction of the fringe both help to effectively shrink the forehead.
Short Textured Hairstyle
This hairstyle compresses a high forehead using a bit of hair that protrudes down from the top of the head into a makeshift fringe. The hair on top is textured for contrast and motion.
