Picking a hairstyle can be pretty confusing especially when you've got a big forehead to put into consideration.

Personally, I lost count of the many times I had to google search hairstyles only to end up looking half bald because of a broad forehead.

Well, the answer is in the styling. A good fringe or lay of hair across your face works but rocking a ponytail has the potential to make you look like a queen too.

Without further a do, below are hairstyles you can successfully rock with a big forehead.

1. Fringe

This lay of hair right about the forehead makes a perfect hide for your glaring problem and makes your head look smaller.

2. Side Pats

While these gorgeous babies (If your salonist can hack a decent one) don't cover the whol of your forehead, they make it a little less visible and draw attention to your eyes and facial features.

3.Afro curls

Let your hair loose and wild in a puffed up afro. The heavier the mane the smaller the head looks.

4. Pinned braids

If you prefer to braid then pin them up in a pony tail and  leave the baby hair to flow freely. These accentuate your forehead and make it look smaller. The idea is to avoid anthing that pulls back your face.

5. Lob and Bobs

Do it like the beautiful Grace Msalame and go in for a cut. While a bob may be tricky to manage, it's the perfect haircut for a big forehead. Lobs are layered bobs only longer and they work like side pats by covering just a bit of your face.
