Get the Best Bangs of Your Life
When actress Zooey Deschanel attended the 2013 Met Gala in New York City, she appeared to be a “New Girl.”
The 33-year-old hit the red carpet without her trademark bangs, leaving most people confused and, well, scratching their heads. It was no mistake and Deschanel’s new look didn’t win many over.
“Zooey threw everyone for a loop when she arrived with her signature bangs pulled back,” says Los Angeles-based celebrity hairstylist Julia Papworth. “Although they may not be the easiest style to maintain, bangs are being seen everywhere we look. A reason why they never go out of style is that they are universally flattering. It is a fantastic way to revive a hairstyle or hair color that you may feel is getting a little tired. It is a simple way to make a bold statement.”
Not only can the right fringe make anyone look younger, but it can also hide imperfections without going under the knife and, minus curly-haired ladies, it works for nearly every hair type. Stylists also say bangs never go out of style and can make any outfit look chic enough for day or night.
