Selena Gomez got ‘curtain bangs’ or some shaggy fringe: love it or hate it?

Selena Gomez WOWS in vintage-inspired look in NYC

From what I gather from my detractors, I’m known for certain things: stanning Angelina Jolie and the Duchess of Sussex, a bygone obsession with Benedict Cumberbatch, and a long-standing hatred for bangs. My lord, do I hate bangs. I loathe them almost as much as I hate Laura Dern, my nemesis. But what if… I’m actually okay with some bangs/fringe? It’s true – sometimes I’ll come across a certain fringe style which isn’t horrible, or a woman who can really pull off some bangs. To be fair, baby bangs are always a mistake, and I would suggest – for the bangs-inclined – to start with just a little shaggy side-fringe to see what that’s like.

Selena Gomez has experimented with fringe before, to mixed results. These are photos of Selena out on Monday, debuting her new shaggy fringe (“curtain bangs”?) and… I don’t hate it? I actually sort of like these bangs and I think they suit her face? Plus, they’re shaggy enough where they won’t be absolutely horrendous to grow out if she changes her mind. So let it be known far and wide: these bangs are okay, according to me. Plus I love her outfit in these photos – I really want that sweater.

Selena is stepping out this week on the promotional trail – she did voice work in Robert Downey Jr’s Doctor Doolittle movie (which looks like a big bomb) and she’s promoting the release of her latest album, Rare. She chatted with Variety about it – go here to read.

    Why does she look a rough 45 in the header pic?

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      I wouldn’t say she looks rough but she definitely looks older than her 27 years. But I think it’s just the angle. She looks fine in most of the recent pics Ive seen of her.

  2. Lara K says:


    She doesn’t even look like herself She looks like Kaia Gerber got her face stuck in a vacuum cleaner.

    • boodiba says:

      I was just thinking how unattractive Kaia looks in the picture in that post of today – the fatal closetogether eyes thing.

    • Carol says:

      Ha! I was going to say she looks like a cross between kaia gerber snd sofia vergara.

  3. josephine says:

    Wow, harsh comments. I really like it. She’s got a 60′s vibe with this cut and I think it flatters her face. I like the outfit and the hair.

  4. ao says:

    I swear she looks exactly like Rachel Bilson.

  5. Mrs. Peel says:

    I think the bangs age her face, but that’s just my opinion.

    • lucia says:

      She probably doesn’t mind much, since people are always banging on about how her face still looks like a child.

  6. BANANIE says:

    I don’t like the bangs at all but I think they work really well with this particular outfit.

  7. Sarah says:

    I love bangs. I especially love straight bangs. I’m growing them out and it’s frustrating. I didn’t know clip in bangs was a thing

  8. Sparkle says:

    Her hair is always a mess never looks good

  9. Nicegirl says:

    I liked it better before the bangs.

  10. GG4eva says:

    Love Selena. Bangs and all.

  11. Lila says:

    I’m just itching to move them out of her eyes.

  12. Miumiiiu says:

    I love it. She’s always been pretty and I think she looks more gorgeous than ever. I may be biased since I also love her outfit.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I kind of like it, but I think the bangs are just a bit heavy with her features.

  15. Kristen says:

    Wow, I love it! She really is drop-dead gorgeous.

  16. jammypants says:

    I like them. I always found her cheeks distracting so they frame her face better.

  17. matahari33 says:


  18. L says:

    She looks so pretty. Great outfit too.

  19. A Fan says:

    Nope, not flattering to her face. There are many people who would look better with bangs, but Selena is not one of them.
