Autumn is here, and aside from deciding which Euphoria character you should be for Halloween, you may be grappling with whether or not to get bangs this fall. The ever-present question seems to really gain steam amidst seasonal shifts, but rest assured that Rihanna's blunt bangs are the answer you've been searching for. Celebrating the Fenty pop-up at Paris Fashion Week, the fashion and beauty mogul debuted straight, raven tresses that nearly brushed her waist — but it was her face-framing fringe that caught everyone's attention.
The singer's wispy, eye-grazing bangs and statement red lip served Jane Birkin vibes in the French capital, while a sharp cat-eye accentuated the Barbadian beauty's signature green eyes. Donning an all-black denim outfit and a Balenciaga fanny pack, the 31-year-old completed her look with a diamond chainlink choker and boxy sunglasses atop the fresh crop.
If Rihanna's rich and varied track record in hair is any indication, this statement look may have been a one-night thing — but to absolutely no one's surprise, it served as yet another A+ beauty moment for the eclectic style icon. A wise Twitter user once said, "It's ugly until Rihanna decides it's not," but Riri isn't the only tastemaker definitively deeming fall 2019 the Season of Fringe.
Dua Lipa revealed a freshly-chopped bob and blunt bangs in Paris last week, while Courteney Cox debuted a shag haircut in London earlier this month. From Charlize Theron's bowl cut to Katherine Heigl's new dark hair, the list of celebrities daring for change is particularly long at the moment, so why not enjoy a reinvention of your own? The time is now, so pencil in your salon visit and get your styling products on deck. Ahead, The Zoe Report's product picks to keep your new bangs in tip-top shape, à la Rih.
