Bangs matter. If you have a high forehead and are looking for a hairstyle that will conceal it, bangs are your best friend. Whether they’re short, long, straight, fringed or side-parted, bangs take the focus off your forehead.

All hair types can benefit from a few styling tricks to visually balance out a prominent forehead. A deep side parting, for example, flatters round faces and makes the forehead appear smaller.

Long, straight hair with a center parting will further accentuate a high forehead. Play with different hairstyles and wear hair rather messy to make it look fuller! Curls, waves, tousled updos and topknots will distract the eye from the forehead. Beach waves are always an eye-catcher.

If you want to conceal your high forehead, you should go for a deep side parting, because a center parting is too symmetrical and makes the forehead area stand out. This is a brilliant quick fix if you can’t go to the hairdresser.

One of the last things you want if you have a high forehead is a haircut that stretches your face shape and features. If your hair ends above your collarbone and is styled with a deep side parting, your hairstyle can actually create the illusion of a shorter forehead. Adding a few curls just makes for a fresh look.

Curtain Bangs

See-Through Bangs

A full fringe is a big challenge, especially for newbies. Blunt bangs require extra styling in the morning and if you don’t like them, growing them back out is an even bigger commitment. To avoid regrets later, wear a “fake” bangs first to try them out. Cutting bangs should not be an impulsive solution to boredom or defeat. Faux bangs help you get a realistic idea of what life with bangs really feels like, so you can visit the hairdresser with enthusiasm instead of uncertainty.

See-through bangs can make your forehead look short. However, if you already have a narrow forehead and a round face, sheer bangs can shorten your entire face, making it look slightly babyish.

Long hair with layered cut

Longer hair looks less flattering with a high forehead, but there are still options for a matching hairstyle. A side parting and a soft texture are two great ideas for wearing long hair while flattering your facial features. Keep the hairstyling soft and loose and avoid updos that might expose the entire hairline too much.

Volume is an important factor when it comes to drawing attention away from the forehead. Thicker hair that has a lot of natural volume looks wonderful with a long haircut.

Face framing steps
