Alexa Chung Has Bangs

Alexa Chung is one of those celebrities that feels like she always is perpetually sporting a piecey bob with bangs — so much so that when we saw this photo, we couldn’t put our finger on just what was different about her. Was her hair shorter? Straighter? Was she wearing different eyeliner than usual? Then it hit us: The bangs are (somehow) completely new.

As befitting her Brit ‘it girl’ status, Chung never stays bangsless or bangin’ for too long, preferring instead to cycle them in and out every few months. But she’s been rocking a messy, bangs-free lob for so long we were thinking she may have finally committed. Once we saw her center-parting and braiding her front pieces, we thought it was curtains for her signature style for sure — until today. “Fringe zone. Fluff hair on left. Thanks @georgenorthwood :)” she wrote as a caption to the debut shot of her bangs, below.

At a book signing for her tome It in London, she showed off her new old do in the wild, first rocking a textured, floppy fringe and then combing it together for a fuller, more mod style at an event for her nailpolish collection. Fittingly, Chung shared a snap of the “hairspiration” for her new bangs: ‘60s supermodel Jean Shrimpton.

Are you glad she’s back to the bangs?

finally! don’t care for this girl but apparently she has influence among her flock of sheep so hopefully the “looking weird is an attractive look” phase will finally be over & people can allow themselves to start looking normal again.

I don’t know much about this chick, or why she’s famous, so I don’t care one way or the other about her hair. To tell you the truth I don’t think she has much style and she mostly looks like a drown rat.

Wow, that’s the prettiest look on her!

Geez Megan! Bitter much? You took the time to peruse the article AND post a comment…….so, you must care just a teensy little bit.
