To us here at StyleWatch, Beyoncé and Britney Spears are in a special category of stardom: anything either woman does style-wise is front-page news. So when we noticed Beyoncé’s new bangs Saturday night, we got excited to see she was trying something new … something that Spears tried just a few weeks ago. And that can only mean one thing: It’s a Faceoff!

Beyoncé — who’s tried several different ‘dos recently, including curls and a beehive braided bun — showed off her new, face-framing fringe while sitting courtside at the Brooklyn Nets game with Jay-Z. The star opted for mod, blunt bangs and new long, straight honey-hued locks.

Two weeks before, Spears swapped her dip-dyed tips for feathered fringe to complement her long, blonde layers, and test-drove the look while out in Los Angeles before bringing it to TV on last week’s X Factor.

Which star do you think pulls off bangs better, Beyoncé or Britney? Vote in our poll below!

Beyonce’s bangs are a story. Wow – People mag must be desperate for stories. I used to look forward to People magazine. Go back to what the mag was at the beginning. That would set you apart from all the other rag mags out there.

Beyonce looks absurd. What does she call that color???? jeez. Go black, girl, go BlACK! Glossy shiny reflective black. It works for Salma Hayek, it works for Demi Moore (well, it does!), it works for Elvira (OK, wig) and Rihanna (when she leaves it black), it works for Catherine Zeta-Jones. Black hair is beautiful! But I don’t know what Beyonce’s “real” color is. I definitely don’t see the appeal of this orange-sherbet colored hair, or the Tang-colored hair Mariah Carey sports. Whitney Houston looked great with black hair too.

She got a new wig. Big deal.

Carla is right…Beyonce is wearing a wig. A wig is different then extensions Angela…a wig is Beyonce’s “go-to” whenever she feels like mixing up her look. Besides, a close friend of mine styled Britney’s hair for a magazine photo shoot and that styling did NOT involve a wig whatsoever. With all that being said…Britney gets my vote!!!

Beyonce’s hair looks like straw. It’s in desperate need of hydration.

NOBODY looks good in bangs, except 3 year old girls.

Between Britney and Beyonce i’d say Britney looks better! Especially knowing that is her real hair….just picture beyonce taking that wig off.

B. on

Beyonce’s outfit is horrendous! And for that to be fake hair, it sure looks damaged and dry. Why, oh why is she trying to be a White Barbie?

Sukhoi on

The pictures are in now way biased……

Anyways Briney’s bangs look better than Beyonce’s.
