So, I'm desperately due a haircut as my hair's become ridiculously long now "/
I would like to have my hair cut quite short (so it can maybe be styled a bit), however I am very wary of doing so..
The main reason for this, is that I have quite a large forehead..
Just wondering how I could have my hair cut relatively short, without looking a complete idiot with a big forehead! xD
My hair is very dark brown (basically black), if that affects things in any way :)
Thanks in advance for any responses! :)

Well, I feel that when you do have a large fore head you have to be really careful about how you cut your hair.
The most universally flattering hairstyle for large foreheads is bangs. Cutting the bangs at eyebrow level straight across will bring attention to the rest of the face and will camouflage the forehead. Layered bangs along the forehead and down to the chin can frame the face and may be a softer look. Long bangs can also work for men, especially when the bangs are swept sideways on the brow.
Parting your hair on the side will bring attention to the hair and not the forehead. Another trick is to part the hair on the side and bring the hair across the forehead. Secure at the side of the head and fasten into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. This creates the illusion of bangs but can be done with longer hair without cutting bangs.
A short haircut can provide balance to a large forehead, especially if layers are cut around the front of the face. Spiky hairstyles can also draw the eye away from the face. Add volume with styling products or tools to provide lift and movement to the hair.
