As a Nigerian babe with a forehead that looks like it’s my brain’s headquarters, this article was necessary. Because I’m tired of running away from ponytails just because I fear my forehead will steal all the attention.

So, fellow forehead geng, I gat you. These are the best ponytail styles to rock.

Good ol’ bangs

Yes, I know. We’ve been there, done that and have the receipts. But bangs are just like your first ex. You’re tired of them, but you still find yourself going back. It’s worth it because it completely covers the forehead, if that’s what you’re going for.
