25 celebrity haircuts that’ll make you want bangs, stat
Celebrity haircut: Taylor Swift’s blunt bangs
We know breaking up makes for a catchy love song, but we sure hope Taylor Swift doesn’t write about leaving her current hairstyle any time soon. Her “blunt, straight-across bangs look best on oval faces,” says Clairol professional celebrity colorist Kiyah Wright. A style with tons of structure like this one needs a trim every two weeks, but Taylor’s sexy look proves it’s so worth the upkeep.
Celebrity haircut: Kim Kardashian’s full bangs
Keeping up with a Kardashian’s hairstyle is no easy task, but we’re obsessed with the way Kim Kardashian experiments with her look. “Full bangs are in right now,” says Wright. “To achieve this hairstyle, ask your stylist to start closer to the crown of the head in a pie section.” The bangs are full and wide with a soft layer around the edges, which enhances cheekbones in a majorly flattering way.
Celebrity haircut: Dianna Agron’s side-swept bangs
Looks like we have something to be gleeful about too! A hot new red hair color paired with shiny, side-swept bangs is easy to pull-off on a shoulder-length bob like Dianna Agron’s. Just ask for layered bangs that flow seamlessly into the rest of your hair. Bonus points: The longer length means they’ll grow out flawlessly.
Celebrity haircut: Michelle Obama’s rounded bangs
Michelle Obama’s new haircut was the bang heard around the world. We love the way her fringe falls at eyelash level and extends past her cheekbones for a modern yet polished effect. Plus, the rounded sides open up her face and flatter her gorge smile, says Wright.
Celebrity haircut: Kelly Rowland’s longer bangs
The ladies of Destiny’s Child (fingers crossed a reunion will happen!) have come a long way with their beauty looks, and we can’t help but stop and stare at Kelly Rowland’s mile-long locks. Add instant oomph to Rapunzel-like hair with thick fringe that stops right before your cheekbones. “A style like this looks great on those with oblong faces, as it covers a lot of the length of the face to balance it out,” says Wright.
Celebrity haircut: Helena Christensen’s shorter bangs
For a sexy cut like Helena Christensen’s, ask for bangs that hit just above the brows, leaving the heaviest pieces at the sides to round out a square face shape. “Bangs that start a little bit shorter like this one give clients an extra week or so before having to trim them again,” says Wright.
Celebrity haircut: Kimberly Caldwell’s layered bangs
Whether you already have a natural wave to your hair or you want to style it like Kimberly Caldwell’s, side-swept bangs look fun and edgy with lots of layers and cool piece-iness. It’s also a great “in-between” look when you’re transitioning between cuts. “To accessorize your look between trims, try hair barrettes and colored bobby pins to accent your bangs, pull them to one side, or part hair down the middle,” says Wright.
Celebrity haircut: Emma Stone’s feathery bangs
Layered bangs like Emma Stone’s look fab on all hair types with the help of a single beauty product—hairspray. Spritz it on your fingers, then comb your fingertips through your bangs to maintain the feathery effect.
Celebrity haircut: Amber Riley’s voluminous bangs
If you want bouncy side-swept bangs like Amber Riley’s, “ask for fringe that will fall just above the eyebrows after you style them,” says celeb stylist and beauty blogger Kristan Serafino. The best part? “It can work on any hair texture and is so easy to maintain.” Just use a dab of defrizzing shine serum and blow-dry with a large round brush to get a voluminous finish.
Celebrity haircut: Jessica Biel’s perfectly even bangs
Sure having Justin Timberlake at our side would make us all smiles too, but for now you can be glad that achieving a hairstyle like Jessica Biel’s is totally doable. “You want to make sure your stylist cuts your fringe while the hair is dry,” says Serafino. “This way you’ll see exactly how it’ll fall after you blow-dry them.”
