Katy Perry: Better With or Without Bangs?

Did you notice that Katy Perry was wearing bangs last night? That’s okay, we wouldn’t blame you if you missed them altogether. After all, she was wearing a whole lotta dress to the Beatles tribute event: a giant pink-and-purple rose print ballgown with matching cape.

But now that we’ve drawn your attention back to her hair, it’s time to discuss. The star is revisiting a look that used to be her signature — thick, full bangs — though this time, they’re less blunt than they used to be when she was in her pin-up girl phase. The new fringe was choppier, piecier and more gamine, peaking in the center of her forehead.

We’re guessing these are bangs are likely “one night only”: A clip-in piece worn to add a little edge to a toothache-sweet outfit. However, they look so natural on her that we forgot for a moment that she’s been bangs-free for months. So we’re wondering if Perry is testing the waters for a return to fringe? And more importantly, should she commit? Do you miss the bangs or do you like her best without? Tell us below!

Bangs make her look as immature as she is!

I do not like the bangs. They don’t even look professionally done! I love Katy Perry and love her unique style but this just isn’t doing it for her.

Talented musician but complete flake

I think the bangs do suit her, but if her hair is down it would look better with them. If it is pulled up, without is better.

Lisa on

Yuck. Definitely without bangs.

Charli on

Those are not good bangs. They look like she has breakage.

I’m hoping this is just a bad picture of her (with the bangs)…I think they’re WAY too short.

I don’t care for the updo. The bangs would look better if her hair was down.
