Big noses -- you either love them or hate them. If you have a big nose and are looking for ways to either highlight or hide it, a haircut can do it for you. Indeed, a simple haircut is all you need to either make your schnoz the star of the show or simply a supporting actress.


If you are proud of your large nose and want to show it off, a short 'do is the way to go. Pixie cuts and other cropped coifs give your nose the star treatment and allow you to flaunt it. But if you'd rather keep your nose under wraps, long hair is your best option. Medium to long hair draws the eye away from your face and detracts attention away from your beak.


Go with soft and feathery layered cuts if you'd like to keep your nose size on the down low. This sexy style helps balance out your large nose and takes the eye away from it, bringing it to your eyes and mouth instead. If you want to showcase your nose, rock a hairstyle that is straight and blunt. This type of 'do emphasizes your proportions and puts your nose on full display.


Bangs are a great tool to either highlight or hide a larger nose. Short and blunt bangs cut straight across your face to create harsh lines and put your nose on full display. Longer bangs that cover your forehead and eyes also draw attention to it. But side-swept bangs soften your face and bring the eyes up to yours. Wispy bangs have the same effect and bring the focus away from your nose.


If you want your nose to be the first thing people notice about you, then rock a center part, which draws the eyes directly to the center of your face. If you'd rather keep your nose a bit of a secret, then a side part is for you. A side part takes the attention away from your nose, instead focusing attention on your more flattering features.
