Kendall Jenner got bangs and looks like a completely different person

yes, no, maybe so?

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

I love how my various dislikes/hatreds are so universally known that people often send me “tips” on sh-t that they know I’ll hate. Like, if Duchess Kate wears something particularly buttony, I get tweets and they are golden. So too with my bangs hatred – and to be clear, because I feel like I have to say this every time, not every “bangs” hairstyle is awful. Some women really do have the face to pull off certain kinds of bangs. I will never, EVER be a fan of baby-bangs, nor will I ever think those too-long, shaggy, thick bangs look good. But sure, in general, I judge on a case-by-case basis. Usually the best outcome is that bangs are a wash – they don’t make someone look better or worse, just different.

So it is with Kendall Jenner, who debuted her new bangsy hairstyle on Instagram this week. Kendall has done the long-hair, no-bangs, center-part look for years. But… she’s also been tweaking her face for years now, and I think the bangs are associated with that. As in, she went for a new hairstyle to mask some of the work she’s had done of her face, so that when people are like “she looks so different,” she can just say “it’s the bangs.” And whoa does she look different. The lip augmentation with this family needs to stop. Their lip guy is doing them a grave disservice. Kendall went from looking like the freshest, most natural Kardash-Jenner to looking like her mother’s plastic clone.

And yes, I hate these bangs. They look incredibly dated on her. She looked better without them.

    She looks like Michael Jackson with all that work done. She hasn’t been the “most natural” one in years, but she really has messed with her face too much for being so young.

    • jwoolman says:

      She looks like a Kim wannabe to me. She’s even trying to look not melanin-challenged.

      • pinetree13 says:

        She definitely looks like she’s trying to surgery herself into her older sister. I wish their mother was more supportive and loving so they didn’t feel this intense desire to alter themselves when they were all naturally pretty to begin with.

        But can we not with melanin-challenged? I’m the colour of printer paper and I’ve been teased for it my whole life. I really don’t want to waste money staining my clothes by getting sprayed orange or risking a deadly cancer by tanning so it would be nice if people didn’t make me feel like my natural skin colour was something horrid.

        I read an interesting article yesterday accusing Ariana Grande of being in “brown face” and I wonder why the Kardashians are not called out for this as well very often.

      • jwoolman says:

        Pinetree- I refer to myself as melanin-challenged. You are unlikely to be paler than me….

        The fact is that except for people with certain types of albinism, we all have melanin pigment in our skins and eyes. Some of us just produce more of it than others, both naturally and in response to sunlight. I’m the type that doesn’t tan too well, we just burn and get skin cancer. The sun has never been my friend.

        Kendall’s natural coloring is in the pale category, but she is using makeup to make her look as though she has more natural melanin that she does. Her sister Kim has been doing this quite a bit also, and so it is worth noting.

      • Ange says:

        Which is hilarious as she doesn’t even have the Armenian excuse. It’s so fake, all of it.

    • missskitttin says:

      What a baaad wig!

    • Char says:

      Those lips…

  2. KEEKS says:

    Nobody commented yet? How about on how she looks 50 now? Or how ridiculously photoshopped this picture is. A hard no for me.

    • Redgrl says:

      @keeks – on behalf of all of us who are (almost) 50 – actually looking 50 is fine. Problem is so few people do these days.

      • bebe says:

        Agree, Redgrl. But the plastic surgery makes her look utterly bizarre and sad, like an older person clinging to their youth by way of the surgeon’s scalpel.

      • Ashipper says:

        I know. As a woman in my 50’s, I find annoying that the go-to insult is to say someone looks 50. Thanks for saying I look awful.

      • Lulu says:

        Absolutely nothing wrong with looking 50 but not when you’re 23

      • KEEKS says:

        My meaning was for such a young girl, I am 44, no hate.

      • Redgrl says:

        @keeks & @ashipper – yes, as women we need to embrace realistic beauty at all ages – I’m sure you are both rocking it!

    • Josephine says:

      I agree about the photo-shopping – it’s clip-on bangs with very heavy photo-shopping. And all of these people with the heavy surgery and make-up look way older than they are.

      • Erinn says:

        Beyond that – you can see the actual outline of her lips. She’s been REALLY heavy handed with the liner and lipstick to make them look MUCH bigger than they are. I suppose she learned it from Kylie. I suspect she got some fillers a while back, but the makeup is making it look so much wonkier.

      • Swack says:

        Was just about to ask if that really was her own hair. Just does not look real.

      • Susan says:

        It looks like a full on wig to me. The texture of the hair doesn’t look real.

  3. The Voice says:

    She looks like a different person because she does! It’s not just the bangs. Wtf with the lips??

  4. Louise says:

    I thought it was Kylie in the second photo. She has ruined her looks. Just WHO is telling her this is a good idea?

  5. Tw says:

    She looks insane in the video on IG. Giant side eye to any designer who hires her clown ass.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      CLOWN ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LITERALLY SCREAMED!!!!!!!!

      Having been raised by a model from the 70s-80s…who took her craft VERY SERIOUSLY…and often took me to trunk shows as a wee lass…where I got to be surrounded by the most beautiful fabrics, intoxicating scents and the most bratty people that walked the earth…and bodies, lots and LOTS of naked bodies…men and women…which, was actually a GOOD thing in retrospect…which made me have an INTENSE love/hate/worship relationship with ALL THINGS FASHION since I was five years old…I have to say regarding Kendall et al…

      I. CAN. NOT!!!!

    • Steff says:

      And who’re these girls fooling with their orange tans, no pores, highlighted, caked and baked make up Instagram shots? I want to point to all the teens that worship her that this is completely fake and unnatural.

  6. Redgrl says:

    Don’t like those bangs that seem to start at the crown of her head. And yes, those fake lips are dreadful.

  7. BANANIE says:

    With the crazy lips she is definitely looking more Kardashian/Kylie-esque. I think Kourtney has a fresher face than Kendall at this point.

    I’m wondering if Kendall is going to abandon the natural look altogether and go for implants.

    I assume these bangs are real, but didn’t Kim debut fake bangs a week weeks ago before immediately going back to her regular hairstyle?

  8. BaeBae says:

    I personally do not believe that getting bangs or changing your hair makes you look like a completely different person. I change my hair pretty much every week thought so there’s that lol.. I do, however, think she looks like a biracial/light skinned black woman… and not because of the bangs either.

  9. Nancy says:

    They’re definitely not real. I generally like bangs, but Miss Kendall looks better sans bangs. These chicks get bored so easily. Basic.

  10. horseandhound says:

    now they all look like one single person. only kourtney looks like a normal person.

    • Nancy says:

      Kourtney is cool and imo has a far better body than her sister. She is hands on with her kids and they know her while the others seem like props. I fear for poor little whats her name, Khloe’s daughters, Truth I think. She drags that child around like a toy. What a family.

  11. Beechie says:

    I think it looks kinda cute but it also looks like a wig to me so!

  12. sequinedheart says:

    She looks like Lisa Rinna.

  13. Louisa says:

    Good god. All I see are lips.

  14. Anastasia says:

    I hope that’s a wig. Why do the bangs start at the crown of her head??? I’m normally a fan of bangs, and I’m not normally a fan of the severe center part/hair scraped back so hard it’s a facelift look, but these bangs aren’t it.

  15. Nacho_friend says:

    On the plus side, she seems to keep her hair colour looking natural?!

    • Nancy says:

      That’s a wig on her head, you can tell not just because it is, but look at the texture. I doubt seriously a model would ever cut bangs. But yes the color is natural! I hate she did what she did to her lips. She set herself apart by having a modeling career and being thin as opposed to buy a butt Kardashian/Jenner. As teens Kylie was so jealous of her, I hope things haven’t reversed, bc she looks like Kyle on crack. Loose the wig and deflate the lips. Do you Kendall!!!!

  16. Murphy says:

    I thought it was Naomi Campbell

  17. PhillyGal says:

    You know she will continue messing with her face. Starting so young, I wonder what she will look like in 30 years?

  18. sommolierlady says:

    Those lips are clownish. Who would hire her to model with those atrocities?

  19. Lizzie says:

    did she get some bad forehead botox? why?

  20. Nichole says:

    Wow. She looked great before. Now she just looks like…. well, a Kardashian. 😩

  21. Molly says:

    The drastic hair to mask a new face is one of Kim’s favorite tricks. (Then she claims it’s not a wig. Lady, it’s always a wig.)
    What Kendal has done to her face is such a shame. She really was beautiful to start.

  22. smcollins says:

    If you hadn’t told me that was Kendall Jenner I never, in a million years, would have guessed that was her. WTH

  23. Zan says:

    Honestly I thought it was an image of Kris Jenner at first. Is she aiming to look more like her mom? Just wondering.

  24. clairej says:

    No way is that the biggest Supermodel in the world at the moment. It is insulting she is even given the title Supermodel. Someone was right in saying she is morphing into Emily R. Which is scary because Emily’s face is terrifying to watch in motion – nothing to aspire to.

  25. Case says:

    She looks just like Kylie now…

  26. minx says:

    She’s so boring, that’s all I got.

  27. Pandy says:

    Naomi Campbell would like her look back Kendull. What color of base is she wearing? Whose lips???

  28. CatWomen says:

    She cut them way back in the hairline, bad haircut.

  29. JANAK says:

    She’s morphing into Kim, just like the rest of them.

  30. Jessie says:

    she looks like a cone head

  31. raincoaster says:

    To distract from the horrible fake and bake and new lips?

  32. zia says:

    Those are clip ons… you can tell.

    • McGill says:

      That’s what I thought. I use clip in bangs all the time. I have learnt that having curly hair with two strong cows licks in the front does not allow for nice bangs especially in Brisbane summer heat. I regret it every time I ever get them so now I stick to clip ins.

  33. Katashae says:

    Excuse me but ima say it: This family needs to stop blackfishing or be called out more on news media (not just us POC yelling on Twitter). It’s gross and blatant. I wish they’d go away. But…apparently they never will.

  34. A Fan says:

    They’ve all morphed into the same face.

    [*Can’t tell them apart anymore.*]

  35. Tinkerbellrae says:

    And I see she got the asshole lips aswell

  36. Anare says:

    I’m guessing those bangs aren’t real. The lips look absolutely ridiculous. What a fool she is. She’s ruining her face. Ick.
