Hayden Panettiere Debuts Bangs In Time For Fall
Fall is fast approaching and Nashville star Hayden Panettiere hasn’t wasted any time in prepping her post-summer look. Last night at a tapping of David Letterman’s Late Show, the actress stepped out with sleek hair and dramatic new fringe. An easy way to shake things up and transition your summer cut, bangs are great once the weather gets a little cooler (it’s no fun at all having hair sticking to your forehead when it’s hot and steamy outside).
Panettiere paired her new ‘do with a long sleeve Alexander McQueen mini and a kicky pair of bright red boots. The overall effect was striking and definitely very tough-girl chic.
While we’re sad to leave sundresses and beachy waves behind, the actress’ new style has us excited for the changing seasons. Would you consider getting bangs?
