Last 12 months, girls throughout Hollywood made a feminist assertion with their blunt haircuts. We shortly dubbed the extreme form and child bangs the “sci-fi bob,” a nod to the highly effective girls in TV and movie who’ve worn it earlier than. (Think: The Fifth Element, Star Trek, and Aeon Flux.) Soon sufficient, Selena Gomez, Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian West, Olivia Culpo, and Kelly Rowland have been rocking the look. And now, it seems that yet one more star is hopping on board: Emma Roberts.
It’s a well known undeniable fact that the American Horror Story actress adjustments her hair coloration extra usually than the typical particular person. And but, she not often switches up her lower. Besides the typical trim, Roberts’ uneven L.A. lob is fairly predictable. Then, she confirmed up the Critics’ Choice Awards final evening — and all our expectations flew proper out the window.
Roberts walked the pink carpet along with her boyfriend Evan Peters and a brand-new set of child bangs — the primary we have ever seen on the star. Suddenly the notion of “sci-fi” bob took on a completely new, literal that means. We’re nonetheless ready on movie star hairstylist and co-owner of Nine Zero One Nikki Lee’s inspiration for the look ( Star Trek involves thoughts), however for now we do know this: It’s most likely not right here to remain. Lee posted an Instagram story exhibiting the blonde wig on a model simply moments earlier than it landed on Roberts’ head. “Guess who’s rockin baby bangs?!!!” she wrote.
So, perhaps the fringe is pretend, however that does not make it any much less memorable. And who is aware of? Maybe Roberts will make like one other well-known Emma and lower a everlasting set sooner or later.
Like what you see? How about some extra R29 goodness, proper right here?
