It won't be long before the compulsory before-and-after photos take over your Instagram feed as they tend to do every spring. So, what will the hair trend be in 2020? Woodstock waves or, perhaps, a Miley Cyrus-inspired mullet? Nay, this will be the year of short haircuts with bangs.
If you happen to be looking for a little inspiration for your annual spring transformation, look no further than Taylor Swift's chin-grazing bob with side-swept bangs or Yara Shahidi's voluminous curly fringe.
Bangs have been synonymous with short haircuts since Anna Wintour debuted her iconic pageboy — or since Cleopatra's time, more like — but there are more ways to wear them than with your average bob.
Kerry Washington and Yara Shahidi have been known to sport them with their textured ringlets, for instance, and folks like Zoe Kravitz, Rowan Blanchard, and Cara Delevingne have proven that pixie cuts look even better with a bit of microfringe as well.
Then, there are new ways to wear bangs with bobs: swept to the side all early aughts-like or with long, Bardot-inspired curtain bangs. Ahead, seven styles to inspire your next salon visit, courtesy of Dua Lipa, Carey Mulligan, Rashida Jones, and more.
