I’ve seen this question a lot so here’s an example of how to replace a select drop down arrow with a fontawesome icon.

<link href="" rel="stylesheet"/>
<label class="wrap">
    <select name="property_type" id="property_type" class="dropdown">
        <option value="" selected="selected">All Properties</option>
        <option value="18">Bungalow</option>
        <option value="77">- Detached (Chalet)</option>
        <option value="19">- Detached Bungalow</option>

    label.wrap {
        overflow: hidden;
        height: 50px;
        position: relative;
        display: block;
        border:2px solid blue;

        height: 50px;
        padding: 10px;
        border: 0;
        font-size: 15px;
        width: 200px;
        -webkit-appearance: none;
        -moz-appearance: none;
        appearance: none;
    label.wrap:after {
        content:"\f13a ";
        font-family: FontAwesome;
        color: #000;
        position: absolute;
        right: 0;
        top: 18px;
        z-index: 1;
        width: 10%;
        height: 100%;
        pointer-events: none;
        -webkit-appearance: none;
        -moz-appearance: none;
        appearance: none;
