Few women have a very large forehead. There is not much you can do about a large forehead. It is partly hereditary and sometimes it happens due to your wrong combing techniques. The best you can do is to hide your broad forehead with a nice hairstyle. The trouble is that a broad forehead makes you look bald. That is why it is important to have the right hairstyle for a broad forehead.

If you want to keep things simple, bangs are the best hairstyle for covering a broad forehead. Bangs are basically fringes of your hairstyle that fall over your forehead. This helps to cover up your large forehead. There are different kinds of bang hairstyles that can be tried. You have the straight bangs, side bangs and messy bangs.

Sometimes having a messy hairstyle can also cover up a broad forehead. For example, Rihanna has a very large forehead. That is why she looks best in messy hairdos.
