Kate Middleton has always been a champion of the side part. The Duchess has worn her hair the same stunning way for years—until yesterday, when she was spotted with long, center-parted bangs. Not only does she not look happy about her hair evolution, but sources say that she is truly on the fence. According to The Daily Beast, when a spectator in the crowd complimented Middleton on her hair, she replied, “I’m not sure about it.”
I have some advice. Because, essentially, Middleton now has my haircut.
First, bangs have a certain undone quality to them. Which does not play well with Middleton’s usual hair trick–curled ends. Kate, go straight! I think your bangs will look far better with dryer straightened hair or, gasp, your natural wave.
Second, don’t mess with your part. These bangs are very, very long, and the center part only calls attention to them. They will look much better with your usual side part–they’ll cut across your eye in an ultra alluring way.
Third, get your stylist to blend in that one piece that is jutting out. It needs a snip. Badly.
And step four, smile!
Try these things and then make a decision on whether to grow the bangs back out. I’m thinking they could be edgy and super cute, if styled correctly.
