I have an abnormaly large forehead

I have an abnormally large forehead

I’ve heard all the jokes, like;

“That’s not a forehead that’s a five head”
six head

seven head

Eight head ha ha ha

It’s been this way since I was a kid
In those days I looked like some kind of freak and people either thought I was one of those brainy child prodigies or they figured I was retarded

As an adult people just assume I’m balding
I preferred being a retard.

I have the exact same problem. i wear a black headband most of the time, although I hate it. I've been thinking of going to my GP to see if there's any sort of operation that can be done, it gets my confidence down so, so low, and i'm only 20 :(

KLJ said...

Oh man, I'm sorry to hear it's gettin' you down.
Seriously though, my advice is always just to own it, refuse to let it be a bad thing. Hell there are certainly worse things. I've learned to love my long jaw, my twice broken nose, my skinniness, and when I'm being confident and out there, I can actually pass for attractive, attractive enough anyway. I've got a beautiful fiance and I get flirted with fairly regularly depsite my five head.
Of course you can also wear a hat.

I am in the same boat, am a 22 year old female with a large forehead, it is upsetting and it makes me feel so insecure and self conscious, I hate the fact that everytime I get a hair style it has to have a fringe so I can cover it up, it is hard and it gets me down, I wish I could do soemthing about it.......

I'm only a teenager and people call me "Alien Head" all the time in the corridors at school. I have friends who try to stand up for me but it gets me down so much and I constantly feel depressed. My head sticks out at the back aswell as having a huge forehead, and I have an underbite so my jaw sticks out too. God I hate my face. Any advice?

KLJ said...

I wish I did have some advice for ya.
I know that the less you care the less other people will fixate. The more they see a confident, friendly person the less they'll focus on what you look like, except for the assholes, and Hey, lucky you; you have an asshole detector.
My experiences also tell me that however it really is, it is probably not as bad as your perception of it, such is human nature.
Best of luck.

to see if there was " a big forhead" support group lol. i have the BIGGEST forhead in history of forheads. lmaoo . i laugh now but it really makes me sad because i feel like i would have the complete package if it wasnt for my fuckin forhead.
it sucks wearing bangs all the time
&worrying about the wind blowing them back so ppl would laugh at me.

Anonymous said...

I have a huge forhead too. MY SOLUTION: I got side swept bangs lol. They cover up your forhead and they're cute! Now-a-days no one knows I have a big forhead except for family and a few close friends that knew me since i was a baby. so GET BANGS!

But i didn't think that there are some people who has This problem ,, I wish that it has a solution :S i'm really Sas in my life

i hate having a big forehead. im freaking 22yo and it still bothers me today just as much as it did when i was younger. i hate wearing bangs all the time, it makes me feel like im covering a secret or something. plus when the wind comes theyre pretty much useless. in all my years i have never been able to style my hair the way that i want because im too embarrassed to let my forehead show, even around my own family. i've considered a couple of times getting surgery to get it reduced but i dont want to give the satisfaction to all those hecklers that have teased me over the years that my big forehead is a "problem that needs to be hidden or corrected". when i look in the mirror i feel attractive until i pull my hair back then all of my confidence is gone out of the window. i also hate all the nicknames people give me "tweetybird" "fivehead"
"ironhead" "bighead" i've heard it all before. i've been searching online for people that share my dilema and its a little comforting to know that im not the only one that has this insecurity.

One time I almost commited a suicide not only because I have a HUGE forehead but also beacause I have BIG empty spots on the sides so I S*** MORE THAN YOU ALL and I'M ONLY 17

i guess im not the only one that has that same problem, im 16 year old female and i have a really hugge forhead... now a days the hair style at my school is all hair to the side in a braid and sucks that i cant do that. i have two bold spots at the sides and it sucks. all my life ive been having bangs that go from right to left and it covers up my whole forhead, but usually everyone asks me why i have so much bangs, and plus when the wind blows i hate having to hold my bangs as well as when i go on my roller coster, i have to put my hood on and hold it, i cant even enjoy the ride because im too worried that when the roller coaster takes the picture my forhead is going to show.. but as for now, no one has seen my forhead except my family. and im tired of having my hair coving it up.. im waiting till i get older so that i can have enough to get a surgery on it.. cus i dont want to be laughed at.

OMG i felt so different cause i though i was the only kid with a big forehead, im 13 and i get teased so much that i cry and the exactly same thing happens to me, 5 head, 6 head, 7 head, 8 head. But i reckon that people only dis you about it cause its different for egsample if everyone had big foreheads and only some people had small foreheads, the people with small foreheads would get teased.
People need to learn to accept that everyones unique.

wow i thought that i was the ONLY one with this problem.. i'm a girl & about to be 15 and i am so embarrassed of my veryyy large forehead. i mean it is really big. i used to get called 5 & 6 head all the time when i was younger until i finally got bangs to 'try' to cover them up a little; which only works when there is no wind around. it sucks though, because i can't really style it all pretty like the other girls since i'm afraid of my forehead showing. i just am so very insecure when it comes to my forehead. i hope there is something i can do to fix it. :(

I'm 14 years old, I never knew I had a big forehead until I was in sixth grade & someone told me I looked like a caveman. I ignored it until 8th grade when everyone else started noticing it. I got bangs to cover it up plenty of times but somehow someone had to notice it. It didn't bother me too much I just told people to shut the fuck up. Recently this year some kid in my geometry class started making fun of me, he called me a six head & told me I looked like the caveman from the geico commercials. & he made some of my friends join in. I brushed it off ass whatever but on the inside I was hurting really bad, & I came home in tears yesterday just because of it and haven't gone to school since. I'm not sure what I should do but if any of you guys can help I'd really appreciate it.

Then he told me it explains the forehead. D: I have very curly hair so its nearly impossible to cover this huge thing up!!

I'm 15 and I probably have a bigger forehead than most of all of you. fml ;/
I've been teased since 6th grade about it and I'm in 10th grade now. I had bangs for the whole of 8th grade year but then I stopped wearing them because I noticed it made my skin feel rather greasy and caused pimples + the damn wind didn't help either. It's crazy how what people tell you can influence you. Before 6th grade no one had ever said a word about my forehead. Not a word. I would always look at myself as different from other people but never in a negative or positive way before 6th grade. I used to think I was just 'me' Then when people started teasing me it really hit me hard. I never thought about killing myself but I always thought having a big forehead wasn't attractive and that it was worse than having a big nose or big eyes. To be honest, I have learned to accept myself but its still hard. Sometimes I'm hesitant to go out because I'm afraid of who would talk shit or look at my forehead. I'm also occasionally conscious of it when I'm talking to people face-to-face. Like everyone else on here, it surprises me to the fullest how a lot of others have this same problem. I never knew anyone else could be so emotional about their forehead same as I. I've been wanting to know if anyone could relate to me for years...

I have a big forhead and my eye lids overlap and get pink so I cant put on eye liner. I ware a gray head band to cover up my forehead and I hate it so much I wish I could have been born with natural beuty. I am only on high school in 9th grade and I cry all the time about this and worry what others haft to say to me. I also pray to GOD about why he made me like this too. Sometimes I feel like killing myself or breaking something. I just wish that I was pritty and had what all the other girls had in my school. Its no fair at all how we where all born like this and are not happy with are selfs. I always get the things from my mom that you will be pritty when you get older and all, but I dont want to wait anymore. I never look at camras eather and I hate pixs. I hate my face alot and I wish it would just go away.

It is sort of nice to hear so many with my problem. I have a large forehead but my main problem is a bald spot on each side of my upper forehead. I never really cared or noticed it until ii grew self conscious in 7th grade. I got side bangs in 8th grade and it was such an improvement. But wind sucks and so does putting the hair up for exercising. I feel like a bald alien. Forehead reduction surgery costs a whopping 7 thousand bucks so i am starting to save up now since im 17.

Well I have a large forehead and its not a forehead that goes straight up mine goes straight out. I can't stand always having to wear bangs and being worried someone will say something. I'm really popular at school and I can't always talk to guys because I think they will notice my forehead I just want to know how to make it appear smaller. I have my really cute days and then my ugly days. I want more cute days!

Just cuz u got a big forehead doesn't mean u can't beat the Shit out of them till they can't talk no more ....I just hate people who make fun ...my mom makes fun of me but u know

Wow, Humanity is rather pathetic, the sheer amount of people worried about their appearance is absolutely pathetic. Vanity is sure obvious here. Be glad that you don't have downs syndrome, or that you don't have lead and mercury poisoning to the extent that it disables you physically. I'm so sick of people wanting to commit suicide or who are depressed about their appearance to others. If they don't like the way you appear, then they aren't worth your time. Stop trying to impress people who will just find another way to judge you no matter what you do.

Don't fold to societies ways, they only want to make you a part of the machine.
I'm done here. (BTW I was "made fun of" since the first grade for the most idiotic things, like actually respecting the teachers. I graduated last year with honers and a trade paper for computer repair).
