Why I choose to embrace my big forehead

September 12, 2021 3 Comments

Hello everyone!

Today I want to talk about one of my distinctive physical features; my fivehead. For those of you who do not know, a five-finger forehead (or fivehead) is a term used to describe a forehead that is the span of five fingers or more. Many people consider a large forehead as being an "ugly" and undesirable feature. Some will do anything and everything to try to make it less noticeable. The easiest way to do this is to wear bangs (a fringe).

A few days ago, I wrote about haircuts, more precisely, how often you should get a haircut or trim. I also trimmed my hair a couple of days ago; I cut my hair in layers to enhance the curl pattern. Usually, I cut my bangs every couple of years to change up my look. Then, I maintain them for a few months before the novelty wears off and remember why I hate having bangs. At the moment, I have face-framing layers but no annoying fringe/bangs. The face-framing layers are more noticeable when I wear a middle part!  

Whenever I cut my bangs, my friends and family members always comment on how flattering they are. I do love the look but, wearing a fringe can be a real pain!

Truth be told, I wear my hair up 90% of the time, especially in the long, hot and humid summer months we experience here, in Malta. As you might have guessed, bangs are not a very practical style to wear in such weather conditions. Because bangs lay against the forehead, they pick up sebum very quickly. Not only is a fringe super prone to looking greasy, but it could also cause acne breakouts. Working out with bangs is a nightmare, and don't get me started on windy days. Most of the time, I pinned my bangs back anyway, and that defeats the whole purpose. A blunt fringe is also very high maintenance; I used to trim mine every two weeks.

I choose to embrace my large forehead and wear my hair however I want and part it whichever way I feel. It's not something I let bother me. But that being said, there's nothing wrong with some little tricks that may help you boost your confidence. Aside from a fringe, two such "tricks" are wearing statement earrings or wearing bright lip colour.  

Always remember that you are unique and irreplaceable!

My mini makeover!

February 19, 2012 2 Comments

Hello everyone! How is your weekend going?

I was bored with my locks (again) so I decided it was time for a hairstyle chance.  I just found a hair colour I love (after changing my hair colour every 4/6 weeks for the past year or so) and I want to keep the length for the Spring/Summer season.  I still trim my hair every 4/6 weeks though.  So, I opted for side swept bangs!

Cutting some bangs is one of the easiest ways to transform your hairstyle!  Side swept bangs are very versatile and look great on all face shapes and with various hair textures. Bangs are a perfect way to add interest to longer hair.  Side swept bangs are also a great way to test out having bangs if you cut them long.  This way, they can be blended into your hair easily if you end up not liking them.
