The latest star to sport bangs? Beyoncé! Knowles debuted her new blunt fringe, which she accented with a printed ensemble by Tibi ($300 and $425; net-a-porter.com) and a pair of Erika Pena’s Barack Obama hoop earrings ($32; erikapenashop.com), at the Nets opening game in Brooklyn, New York. Pretty and politically charged—we love it! Celebrity colorist Rita Hazan also revamped Knowles’s trademark highlights. “It took me a few hours to get her to that butterscotch color and keep it healthy, that was my goal,” Hazan told InStyle.com. “It’s warm, but beige-y — I call it a beautiful Beyonce blonde!” The star has worn side-swept bangs over the years, but the last time she stepped out with straight across fringe was in 2003. Bey joins fellow performer Britney Spears, who also added brow-skimming bangs recently. We want to know: What do you think of Beyoncé’s new hairstyle?
