Traction alopecia from tight braids is said to be the cause of Whoopi Goldberg's wide forehead.

Uh, oh - guess I'll wear my hair down more often, then

I'm with the ones with a little forehead. I've got a low hairline, but with a widow's peak and a HUGE cowlick. Actually, I don't think I could do bangs, no matter what, cause it makes my forehead look like it's nonexsistent. I've got a little chin, too, which has always annoyed me - to this day, I don't care at all for my profile. My eyes (especially when I do my makeup a certain way and wear my contacts) tend to look like they take up most of my face.
My younger sister is the one with the bigger features. She's CONSTANTLY complaining about her "big" nose and "big" forehead and "big" chin - mind you she's also 15 and generally insecure. However, I must say I LOVE photographing her profile - it's perfectly balanced.

I have a small forehead but have only this year grown out my fringe & become bangless. I love not having the hassle of a curly/wavy fringe, it was always too long or too short depending on how my hair decided to dry.
The only down side is that now I have no fringe & longer layers my hair is flatter on top.
Also I have a widow's peak so it is difficult to part my hair in the middle though I am hoping my hair will get used to this. If I part at the side my hair is just hanging over half my face the whole time, although sometimes this is not a bad thing I'm worried I may eventually end up under a bus.

Exclamation Big forehead African Beauties

I have a big forehead and have been very self conscious about it. But then I learned in many countries in Africa its considered beautiful. We should not listen to the warped ideas of beauty in America. Look at so many beautiful African Women who pull their hair back and show their foreheads!!! So proud of their beauty!!!

I have a big forehead and used to be self conscious about it. When Ouidad cut my hair years ago, she showed off my forehead. I cringe when I see those photos. Now it's sometimes side swept bangs, sometimes not. Now I have these weird bangs that the "curl whisperer" cut. Deciding if I should keep them cause sometimes they curl too wonky for my liking. Silly curl floating mid forehead not long enough to side swipe it.... annoying. Meanwhile, I embrace the forehead... big forehead to hold a big brain

Um, all this talk about big foreheads has me thinking about Tyra. Girl is INFAMOUS for her big forehead - and she is a supermodel, TV host and a Harvard business student. Love her or hate her, the woman is doing her thing - and no big forehead would ever stop her.

All that being said maybe I'll just stop freaking out over my bangs growing out and go for it, after all I have my nose to compensate And I'm sure not creepily fit and thin

I like good size noses. my mom has a small nose and my dad has a huge nose, and I got in between. on my mother's side the noses all shrink with age. It is the funniest thing. My grandma has a teeny tiny nose too. My brother has huge nostrils (we have different dads) and his nose kinda slopes. My nose has average nostrils and doesn't slope, but isn't exactly flat. :P

I have a big forehead and a big nose (sometimes it looks huge and other times I love it). I wish I had a really small forehead...but oh we'll...lol. I also wish I had huge eyes and longer straighter eyelashes. (Even my eyelashes are extremely curly!)

Sounds like my mom has been talking to you. She always says that she has a big head for her big brain. Her head is so big, she has a hard time finding a hat to fit. Everyone in my family has a big head... most of it forehead. I'm considering a side-swept bang. It must mean it's going out of style. I never seem to catch on to any trend... until it's over. I've been showing off my giant forehead for years. Maybe it's time for a long, side-swept fringe to break it up.

I thought it was just me. Didn't know it was a curly thing. I actually crop the top of my head off in pictures!

I don't know many people in real life who have large foreheads actually...well anyone female anyway.
