As the weather cools off and you hair slowly comes down from that top knot it’s been wrapped up in all summer, it might feel like time for a change. Sienna Miller thought so. As did Katy Perry and OITNB’s Dascha Polanco. And although these three celebs all went for some pretty dramatic hair color updates, it doesn’t have to be quite that extreme. One easy way to instantly transform your look is with a brand new set of bangs. Case in point: Christina Hendricks and Hailee Steinfeld’s new ‘dos.
Both of these ladies recently hit the red carpet to show off a brand new set of side swept bangs. Christina ditched her long, strawberry blonde locks for a shorter bob that’s dipped in a richer shade of red. Hailee on the other hand, went for a subtler change, keeping her color and length mostly the same except for the front.
Hailee and Christina aren’t actually the only celebs to rock this look recently. Kate Middleton also just got herself some long bangs, as did Victoria Beckham. If you’re looking to try out the look but you’re not fully quite up for a Zooey Deschanel type set, a side swept style is a great happy medium. If you realize you’re not into it, they’re easy to grown out and tuck behind your ear and if you LOVE them you can slowly progress into a blunt set. It’s a win-win here, folks.
