Kim Kardashian can’t go anywhere without people paying attention to what she’s wearing or how she did her makeup that day. Well, when she arrived at LAX yesterday, the paparazzi quickly zeroed in on Kim’s new hairdo – the reality star now has bangs!

Chris McMillian, hairstylist to the stars, is behind Kim’s new look. In addition to the bangs, he also lopped some length off her locks and dyed it a few shades lighter. Kardashian posted a collage of pictures on Instagram to reveal the process behind her new ‘do. She also tweeted, “Fun shoot today @mrchrismcmillan He just can’t control his scissor hands! #bangs.”

Don’t get too excited about Kim’s bangs though. Even though her hair is shorter and lighter, the bangs aren’t here to stay. They’re fake! Once the story broke that she switched up her hairstyle, she tweeted to clarify, “The bangs are fake! Just clip ons! I had a fun Cosmo cover shoot yesterday and Chris McMillan clipped these on!” We thought Kim might have made a big change to ring in the new year with a new style, but she was just taking her bangs for a test drive. What do you think of Kardashian’s temporary new look? Should she get rid of the clip-ons or should she get bangs for real?

Kim Kardashian may have fooled us all with her clip-on bangs, but plenty of other celebrities actually got bangs this year. Check out some other stars who’ve debuted new hairdos with bangs!

Emma Stone

Emma Stone’s bangs could be seen all over the place this year! From movie premieres to award shows to almost every other event she attended, Emma’s hot hairdo always stole the show.

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel showed off her heavy fringe earlier this year. Her new husband Justin Timberlake is reportedly not a huge fan of the hairstyle, but that hasn’t stopped Jessica from rocking the bangs.

Sophia Bush

Sophia Bush debuted her bangs at an event earlier this month. Her fringe, which looks a lot like Biel’s, is longer at the sides than in the middle of her forehead. The bangs seemed to block her vision though, so we might see her trim them even shorter soon!



Kate Middleton

Even the royals have caught onto the bangs trend this year! Kate Middleton showed off her new layers and face-framing bangs last month. It seems this hairdo attracted almost as much attention as the news that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her first child.
