The best celeb bangs: Michelle Obama takes on “it” haircut

And so the deal has been sealed: bangs are officially the biggest hair trend of the moment. We knew they had gone mainstream when the trendsetting Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, debuted her long, side-swept bangs at the end of last year. But now first lady Michelle Obama has switched up her signature side-parted hairstyle for some bold, face-framing fringe for her 49th birthday. The overall effect is flattering and youthful, and the bangs act as a cool new accessory. Nearly everyone can pull off some type of bangs, but some celebs really have awe-inducing fringe we’re dying to copy. We’ve rounded up the very best celeb bangs so you too can snag this style. - By Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor
