Should I get bangs? It’s an age-old question, this week taken up by a couple of fashion’s biggest supermodels. On Monday, Kendall Jenner took it to Instagram, posting a couple shots of herself with piece-y fringe and asking followers whether she should commit. Her friend Bella Hadid responded by getting the exact same bangs herself, at least for a night. Imitation is the sincerest form of… saying yes, girl, get those bangs.
Hadid was at the Jump Into Spring: MICHAEL Michael Kors Spring 2019 Launch Party in New York City when she debuted them. She had the rest of her hair up in a ponytail.
On her own Instagram, Hadid didn’t say whether the bangs were permanent, but she was at least feeling the look, judging from the three Instagrams she posted.
Hadid is no stranger to using clip-in bangs, and she’s tried out many bang looks over the years. There were the side bangs she wore at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017:
She tried out heavy blunt bangs at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards:
She dipped a toe in the micro bang in May 2017, while doing an event in Rome:
She went for middle-parted blunt bangs at a Dior event in 2016:
But Hadid’s latest bang exploration is interestingly timed: New York Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow, where both Hadid and Jenner are likely to walk multiple shows and have their hair styled according to the look each designer chooses for their runway. It’s a whirlwind of heat styling and extensions best followed up with a fresh new cut. Should they get bangs?!?
