Trust me, Bern helmets are not low profile. I'm a small guy and I have the same problem as the OP but with the opposite dimensions. I have a narrow face, so most helmets make me look like a bobble-head. I have a Boeri helmet from like 5 years ago that fits me perfect but I haven't found anything since.

The big head thing along with the matching font kinda made me chuckle.

+1 for Bern

I would not say that they are super low profile but I rock a large and do not think that it looks big at all. When I see others on the mountain wearing Bern helmets in any size I feel the same, just good looking helmets all around.
