Hollywood’s small-screen stars are looking bangin’ these days — and it’s not just because of their sleek summer outfits.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Dianna Agron and Cobie Smulders all cut heavy bangs recently, possibly signaling the start of a hair trend we haven’t seen it a while. Hewitt debuted her new look on Thursday at the premiere of her latest film, Café, after taking to Twitter to share her latest style with fans. “Fun, right?” she asked.

Agron’s bangs appeared earlier in the summer, after the Glee star chopped her long blonde locks. “I’ve probably cut and trimmed it six times and it’s changing slightly every time but I love it,” she told PEOPLE in July. Then on Saturday, How I Met Your Mother star Smulders stepped out at an event in Anaheim, Calif., sporting heavy brunette bangs that skimmed her eyebrows — a departure from her usual bang-less look.

So are bangs here to stay? Or just a fleeting summer trend? Tell us: Would you cut heavy bangs?

Bangs are fun and they make you look a bit younger.

I’ve been rocking these bangs (exactly like Cobie’s) for 6 years now. It’s nothing all that “new” really.
