The Most Flattering Bangs for Small Foreheads

Who says we can’t rock a good fringe?

This time, we’re shifting the spotlight away from large foreheads and onto our rather petite-sized features just for a hot second. Sure, some of us might have lesser space to deal with, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our own troubles too! We’re constantly told that it’s impossible to pull off any sort of fringe, but how true is that really? Well, not true enough.

While it is a fact that even the smallest tweak in your haircut can alter the balance of your face shape, don’t rule out switching up your ‘do just yet. Instead of limiting your options, give yourself the opportunity to experiment – but with the right styles that will still complement and maintain the proportions of your face.

Whether you opt for a choppy or asymmetrical cut, sweeping your fringe to the side is a sure-fire way to disguise the size of your forehead. Rather than starting from a deep side part, you can choose to have it aligned with the centre of either your right or left eye, depending which side you’d prefer. This way, the amount of hair that’s parted won’t be too heavy and end up falling flat against your face.

Similar to the side-swept style, this also takes the focus away from your forehead and diverts it to your other prominent features instead. Having soft, wispy layers with a slight wave helps frame your face in a very flattering way whether you decide on wearing it up in a bun or loose and tousled.

One of my favourites would definitely have to be this trendy number. It helps you fake a slightly longer forehead while still allowing you to show off your brow game (total win-win, if you asked me). The style varies from having the ends as high as an inch above your brows or even touching right at the top of the arch of your brows.

Even if all else fails or you’re just not a fan of bangs, all is not at a loss. If you’re already rocking one-length tresses, try creating a deep side part and blow-drying it upwards at the roots and giving it a quick spritz of hairspray. Building volume at the top gives an illusion of an elongated face, if you will. Plus, if you notice your strands starting to fall flat on your head halfway through the day, you could always flip it over on the over side to keep it looking voluminous – easy!
