Shailene Woodley’s ‘70s-Inspired Bangs Are The Ultimate Spring Beauty Inspiration


Shailene Woodley has been dipping her toes into the fringe pond for a while now. For months, she's been playing around with her bangs — wearing them piecey, side-swept, and blunt — but her latest Farrah Fawcett look is hands-down the best yet. Allow this trend-forward actor to show you how to do '70s-inspired bangs.

Woodley's been making her rounds at New York Fashion Week, sitting front row at a handful of shows. She hit up two in one day on Mon., heading straight into the Proenza Schouler show after Carolina Herrera's wrapped up. Her look at the latter, though, was just too good to top.

Woodley wore a chirpy, canary-yellow coat with floral embellishments over a blouse-and-shorts combo. She braved the cold in sage-colored shorts and a botanical-print button-up top that will make you ache for spring. The high-waisted silhouette of her bottoms gave the Adrift actor a '70s feel that was gloriously emphasized by her hair.

She wore it down in voluminous waves, parted in the middle and with those shaggy bangs flipped out in an old-school Brigitte Bardot kind of look. Her chestnut hair feathered out from her face in the most retro way, channeling all kinds of nostalgia.

Celebrity hairstylist Keith Carpenter (whose client roster also includes Victoria's Secret models Sara Sampaio and Lameka Fox) was to thank for the throwback look. He posted a picture of Woodley's latest style to his Instagram, which is already full of '70s inspiration that will make you swoon.

They say blondes have more fun, but Woodley has proven that getting bangs is actually more fun with all the different ways she's been styling them lately.


She wore them curly and to the side in Feb., piecey and across her forehead in Nov., and thick and blunt in May.

Nobody can deny, though, that her most recent look trumps the rest. Bring on the '70s vibes by recreating Woodley's bangs with these products, ahead.
