After experimenting with a clip-on version almost a year ago, Taylor Swift became the latest celebrity to adopt one of the hottest haircuts right now—long, airy bangs! This morning she Tweeted the photo above, and joined the ranks of recent bang-adoptors Rachel Weisz, Julianne Moore and Leighton Meester. Unlike thicker, blunter versions which are all one length, this piecey fringe works best when it’s shortest in the middle of the forehead and longer towards the outer edges. Plus, since they’re lightweight, they’re easy to grow out. Are you thinking about trying bangs? Find the right bangs for your face shape in the gallery!
