As a woman who has absolutely gargantuan forehead, which is less cringe: just embracing it or hiding it with bangs?

I feel like bangs look cringe on average woman, you need to look like an absolute Stacy to pull them off and even them they are a downgrade from just having normal hairstyle. But I feel like having huge ass forehead is so cringe too, even if your face is perfect otherwise.

Right now I don't have bangs because as explained, both are kinda shit choices (cutting bangs or just embracing the 6head) but at least with latter it is less maintenance as you don't need to cut your hair so often.

What do my fellow sisters think? Is having a very big forehead ugly? Or would it be better to hide it with bangs?

I'm so insecure about it. I feel like if I just had normal forehead I'd be at least 8/10 now I feel like 4/10 I just feel like it makes your face look so ridiculous and thats all others will see even if your other features are pretty. But idk I just feel like bangs are kinda cringe I can't help it? For me it just is a matter of which is less awful. I wish I just had normal forehead. :(

I honestly didn't even notice the girl in the OP pic had a big forehead. Is it even big? She looks completely normal to me, very pretty even.

I'm more bothered by bad profiles, which I unfortunately have. Everyone is their own worst critic I guess. But to answer your question, bangs are fine! Personally I'm a big fan of side swept bangs.

5head owner here. Bangs bangs bangs. I go through cycles of growing them out but I always look better with them. I don't cover my entire forehead though, I leave them a few cm above my eyebrows so they frame the rest of my face instead of overwhelming it.

OP here again I need to clarify something I wrote my post in a rush and my thoughts were all over the place.

When I say bangs are cringe I'm only speaking for myself. Like, I have never looked at girl with bangs and thought oh she looks ugly, quite the opposite. I think they look cute and I think ''I wanna cut ones as well!'' and when I do it I regret it every time. :D I feel like they look cute on everyone else except me! But in theory bangs would be a perfect solution for me because I kinda hate my eyebrows as well, but every time I cut them I kinda regret it.

Fuck it… I think I'll cut them as a reward after dieting when I have hit my goal weight.

Have you tried clip-in bangs?

Also, as someone with a short forehead, I’ve never understood the hate towards women with big foreheads. I’m jealous because you have so many more hairstyles available to you. And I just think it looks good, but I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.

I have 5head and I use bangs to hide it because I don't like how my 5head makes me look. I look fantastic with bangs and like garbage without.

I have a 5head and hid it with a side part, kinda like in this pic. I have wavy/poofy hair though, not sure it would work with sleek/straight hair.

curtain bangs are the way to go for big foreheads. even these but shorter (or like the second pic op posted) are cute and always look good if bangs don't work

Honestly if there's one thing I learned from kpop it's that acting like bangs is a cheap way to cover your forehead IS cringe. Color theory, fashion study, face shapes, etc… all accommodate for what you're given in life with your shape/colors to work around it. Nothing wrong with bangs.
Maybe try those detachable "wig" bangs first, see if you like it

sorry but I have to agree even if kpop isn't your best metric for these things since everything is heavily edited plus their have $5000 makeup on every photoshoot, the example is spot on. Lisa has never been seen without bangs aside from a few instances you can count on one hand. Those times have been rife with criticism (more like bullying) for her looks.
Use the 3 or 4 fingers method..if your 4head is more than 3 fingers, get bangs

I have a 5head and I got compliments whenever I got bangs. Also I like how I look with bangs more.
