30 Best Hairstyles For Women with Big Foreheads


Dealing with a big head is one thing, but a big forehead? Entirely different! Most hairstylists will recommend that you get a customizable bang style for your forehead. Make sure that you focus the attention on some other features as well, such as your lips, or an interesting birthmark – if you have one! Here are your gorgeous options when it comes to personalized hairstyles.
