See Jessica Alba's New Bangs!

It’s not as dramatic as when Anne Hathaway cut her long hair into a pixie for Les Mis, but Jessica Alba’s latest hair transformation (for her role in the upcoming Dear Eleanor) is pretty dramatic: She’s now rocking thick, blunt bangs.

Alba, who is currently shooting the movie in Colorado, recently stepped off-set with her husband and two kids (both of whom have bangs, by the way) and was snapped showing off her new do.

She wore her hair pulled back into a high messy bun, letting her bangs take center stage. There had been some speculation as to whether Alba might be wearing clip-ins while filming, but based on this photo, our take is that they’re the real deal. (In fact, if you look closely at the photo at left, it appears Alba had slicked her bangs to the side to keep them under wraps. We had our suspicions when we first saw that shot, but the photo at right confirms it!)

It’s not Alba’s first foray into fringe; the actress had them back in 2010. And her most recent major hair change-up came last August when she went lighter, adding ombré highlights to her dark hair.

The woman is the queen of creative hairstyles, so now all that’s left to do is wait and see how she styles her new fringe for red carpet events!

What do you think of Alba’s bangs? Do you prefer her with or without them?

If she were smiling in the picture with those bangs, everyone would love her bangs. The frown doesn’t help.
