Call me biased (really, do it), but Lana Condor is a g’damn queen. Aside from the fact that she’s Cosmo’s March cover star and also the star of my actual romcom dreams (ugh, Noah Centineo, hello), she’s also consistently serving up screenshot-worthy hair lewks, like purple extensions, perfectly tousled lobs, and now, bangs. Yes, it’s 2019, and Lana Condor has bangs. Alert the masses.
Hairstylist Matt Fugate-the wizard behind some of Lana’s recent hair transformations-posted a photo just an hour ago to his Instagram, showing the actress with new choppy bangs. “FRINGE BENEFITS,” Fugate captioned the photo, adding “Huge thanks to @thehairshopinc for this!! #bangs.”
Before you get too excited, Lana’s bangs are, most definitely, clip-ins. I know, I know-a little less exhilarating than had she cut off all of her hair with a middle finger to the world. The Hair Shop is actually well-known extensions outlet, which explains why her faux bangs look so damn realistic and natural.
“She’s gorgeous! Cute cut!” reads one comment, while another reads, “Obsesssssed.” And, honestly, same. The whole look feels a bit Joan Jett, mixed with the modern, polished stylings of 2019.
And, hey, if there’s ever a time to experiment with your look, it’s during New York Fashion Week, where celebrities are wearing their most ~extra~ outfits and beauty looks for the street-style photos (fact: Lana wore these bangs to the Prabal Gurung show, because why not?).
Of course, bangs are way easier to try when they’re, you know, temporary and also cut/applied by a famous hairstylist, but if you’re looking to make a more permanent change, may I suggest taking Lana’s face to your next salon appointment?
