Street-Testing Bangs for the Noncommittal


Last year's feel-good movie of the holidays included this year's must-have accessory: bangs. Rooney Mara's blunt, brow-skimming ones have been all over the runways (Calvin Klein, Marni, Antonio Berardi, Versace). At the Oscars, Rose Byrne's longer, eye-grazing bangs stole the spotlight from her sequined Vivienne Westwood dress. Meanwhile, Zooey Deschanel's bangs practically have their own sitcom. So this week, The Cut's beauty section will be dedicated to the world of bangs: how to trim them at home, the best styling products, and more. First up, a segment on clip-ons. Click to watch as we invited men, women, and even one very patient yellow Lab to give stylist Ken Paves's faux-hair offerings a go. Some found them "liberating," others found them "anti-aging," and one person considered using them to stalk old boyfriends incognito.
