When Bangs Go Bad: 5 Stars We Really Prefer Without Face Fringe


Kim Kardashian, Sophia Bush, Rachel Bilson (PacificCoastNews.com, Getty)When photos of Sophia Bush's newly chopped bangs came out this week, we were filled with mixed emotions. Sure, it was totally bold and daring, very Anne Hathaway a la The Devil Wears Prada (Miranda would approve!). Yet, perhaps they were a little too bold, too daring, and too darn thick.

This got us thinking about other celebs whose bangs haven't quite worked out as well as you might imagine. To our bemusement, sometimes even the most stunning, most stylish, most glamorous ladies can't make bangs work. So, a word to the wise for anyone considering the look—you could end up scoring with results like Taylor Swift or Zooey Deschanel...or find yourself in a hair predicament similar to Nicole Scherzinger.

For your reference, here are the top 5 celebs that should probably stick to face-framing layers or side-swept bangs instead of these blunt babies. Feel free to disagree in the comments below!
