There are certain celebrities whose trademark looks are basically a part of their personal brand. Adele and her bouffant, Anna Wintour and her blunt bob, the list goes on. For Zooey Deschanel that style is her heavy, blunt bangs. But she has a lot of life changes headed her way. The New Girl star is newly engaged and has a bun in the oven. It looks as though the actress has decided to switch things up even more by ditching her go-to hairstyle for something a little more mature.
The 35-year-old starlet is featured on the cover of this month’s Cosmo showing off not straight bangs, but a longer, side-swept alternative. We know it’s not a major hair update (like the one Katie Holmes debuted at the Met Gala), but it is a big move for Zooey. Does this subtle shift indicate that she’s working on a totally bang-less new look? Only time will tell.
Whether you’re looking to take over the look Zooey has left behind or grow your bangs out alongside her, here are a few beauty tutorials that are sure to make either transition a smooth one.
