How do you prevent your curls from getting in your face?

I'm fairly new to the CO method and recently discovered plopping (which I totally dig). My problem is that I have this cowlick/superman curl that is right in the middle of my forehead. Inevitably, no matter which side I part on, that rouge curl wants to bounce forward and land in the middle of my forehead. Not attractive at all.

In the past, I've been an air dry girl, and to combat the problem, I've used a bobby pin, or clip to help that curl dry in a more suitable direction. The trouble with that is that I'll end up with a totally funky curl. All the other curls/waves know where they belong, but not this one.

How do I get that baby to stay back, but not look like I forced it there? Any advice will be helpful. I'm just hoping that I've explained myself so you know what I'm talking about.

If I need to take a picture to illustrate, I will do so only grudgingly.

You're on the right track with the clipping. You should place the clip right at the lower portion of the S of the curl so you don't mess up the curl pattern.

I also use small claw clips to keep my hair out of my face because all of my front layers tend to fall forward.
my hair does the EXACT thing. Sometimes I'll clip it with a tiny jaw clip or bobby pin, but lately what's working for me is , after my hair is dry, I've been putting a little butter (emollience) on my hands and massaging my scalp with it. It is helping with those stubborn hairs that want to come forward

Thanks for the great advice! I loved the clipping video, too. Nothing like seeing how to do something! I'll give it a try.
