Do you hate your forehead? lol

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
LOL I think my good mood is back. So, who has "forehead hate" and still has bangs? No one has seen my forehead since, well, the 80's I think! But recently, I have been showing a little forehead here and there, and now almost feel entirely comfortable with it. I DON'T have the mongo forhead I always thought I had! Oh, and what a relief when I go out dancing, and my bangs aren't getting all sweaty and curled and sticking to my forehead! I don't get as hot anymore! It sounds so simple, just grow them out, right? But does anyone understand how hard that was for me?? No forehead since the 80's!
Here's pics of pre and post bangs. The first pic is really old but you can see how heavy they were. LOL
Oh and how do you like my pink highlights?

I like the first photo better, you look really cute. I'm in my mid 30's now and there's never been a time when I haven't had a fringe (or bangs for the American readers out there!) I look like a complete idiot without it. It's not that I hate my forehead though....it's not excessively large or anything.
I have no idea how to post photos, so I wont!
Have a great weekend.

Almost forgot, you look good in the second picture too....I guess I just prefer a fringe!

I think you're gorgeous in both pics, but I think without bangs people notice your face and your smile more. It opens you up somehow, if you know what I mean. It brings the focus more to your eyes and smile than your hair. I love your dimple...so cute! The pink highlights are cool too..they work for you!

I think you look great in both pictures!

I'm the same way though, I have always thought my forehead was too big and wore bangs for YEARS. The last couple years I have grown my hair out and wear a side part, so it covers part of it. I still won't wear my hair all pulled back though

Also, in the 2nd pic, you actually look much younger than the 1st!

You look fantastic in both pictures, and I the colour of your hair!

I've worn bangs forever...probably since the mid '80's. I've gone to the same hairdresser for about 8 years. Every time she cuts my hair, I say, "Don't cut the bangs too short!" Like she's going to forget after 8 years??!!??

Both of the pictures are great...you're very pretty! The pink is cute too!

I think you look great in both pictures! I haven't had bangs since I was a child, I just can't stand them touching my face, lol.

Yes, I think you look good in both.

So far as bangs go, I can't stand them on me. I hate hair hanging on my face. My hairstylist likes "wispy" looks and one time gave me wispy bangs and side burns. They drove me absolutely crazy. I told her never again!

I haven't had bangs since I was about 14 or 15 (always wanted long, grown-out bangs in hopes my mom would let me dye them a funky color ). I do hate my forehead though. I've been called a five-head before

I have a long forehead, so I have worn bangs all of my life. I don't hate my forehead, but it is very long. I did let my bangs grow out about 3 years ago, and wore them off my forehead, but people kept telling me I looked older, so cut them and continure to wear bangs.

Same here, i haven't had bangs since the 80's/early 90's when i was a little girl. My mom used to curl them then douse them in hairspray and make them poofy It's hysterical now when i look back at my old childhood pictures lol.

I love the pink highlights hon! I think you look great sans bangs I did however think you looked nice with bangs too- you're lucky, you can really wear your hair any way you want and still look good

Well, I do have a high forehead/hairline which I don't like... However until last year I had not worn bangs since grade school! I've never had straight-across-the-forehead bangs though...in grade school it was over-one-eye bangs.
Then I decided to get some sideswept bangs and layers in my hair last August... I love it but sometimes the bangs just get annoying and I have to clip them out of my face! Recently I got my hair cut again with even shorter layers. The side bangs do I think make my forehead look smaller.


Oh if anyone is interested, here are some pics:

With Bangs (and new shorter haircut I got last month)

y'all are all so funny! i've always worn my hair OFF of my forehead for 3 reasons:
1. my forehead is short [like the rest of me!]
2. i have a widow's peak & like to show it off
3. hair in my face bugs me!
when it's long, i wear it like this: long hair
but now, it's short - i have it cut like this: short haircut
here's a pic of me w/it [webcams ]
but it's still pretty much OFF of my face!
[btw - disregard the weight difference!]

Mine's a bit on the larger side, but I think I've learned to just live with it

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments! See, you people with foreheads exposed, I don't think it looks odd at all....because I'm not used to seeing you with bangs...since the 80's! I love the pink highlights, too, but I have to wait to do it again until I see how this new job will handle it!

i think you look great with or without bangs. also, i think your forehead is just fine, not huge at all.

i havent worn bangs since i was 13, and im 21 now. but i didnt wear them bc i was uncomfortable with my forehead but bc it was the style. however, i have recently noticed that i do have a big forehead. but im not at all embarassed by it, i never knew it before so it doesnt bother me that i have a big forehead... heres a pic so you can see



& i have a weird hairline, which ive always known, but that also doesnt bother me. either way, i dont care. and neither should you, because you still look great even if youre not comfortable with your forehead!

nothing wrong with your hairline! your pretty

hey... thanks!!

I get bangs off and on, currently it's no bangs, mostly cause I don't want to take the time to "fix" them

I think you look great with no bangs!
