To us here at StyleWatch, Beyoncé and Britney Spears are in a special category of stardom: anything either woman does style-wise is front-page news. So when we noticed Beyoncé’s new bangs Saturday night, we got excited to see she was trying something new … something that Spears tried just a few weeks ago. And that can only mean one thing: It’s a Faceoff!

Beyoncé — who’s tried several different ‘dos recently, including curls and a beehive braided bun — showed off her new, face-framing fringe while sitting courtside at the Brooklyn Nets game with Jay-Z. The star opted for mod, blunt bangs and new long, straight honey-hued locks.

Two weeks before, Spears swapped her dip-dyed tips for feathered fringe to complement her long, blonde layers, and test-drove the look while out in Los Angeles before bringing it to TV on last week’s X Factor.

Which star do you think pulls off bangs better, Beyoncé or Britney? Vote in our poll below!

Beyonce’s bangs are pretty but would look amazing if the hair was curly or wavy. Britneys bangs are pretty and the stylelised parting is pretty cool but would look amazing with curly or wavy hair. Britneys hair looks like a billion other girls and Beyonce is doing the early sixties thing.

Beyonce is wearing a wig. That is not her hair. At least some of Britney’s hair is her own. Therefore, Britney wins by a landslide for not spending millions on wigs that will only be worn once.

Way to use pictures of a fair comparison. Clearly the author is trolling on Brit.

Nonetheless, they both look trendy – with Brit edging the lead

why do they always take bad picture’s of Britney just to make her look so sloppy, i seem to me like they always picking on her media.

kim on

horrible. bangs are flattering only to a select few people. she is NOT one of those “few”.

angela on

That’s not Britney’s hair either. Both of them wear extensions.

Kat on

Hairstyles aside, I like Britney but doesn’t seem like she gets enough sleep. I wish her well.

Kirsten on

Carla, have you seen the cover of Lucky magazine? Britney was straight up wearing a wig. Most celebrities will not cut bangs into their hair because they take so long to grow out. Britney is likely wearing a wig too.

Blue sky on

Neither look good. Yuck. Both need a new hair stylist or new wigs/weave.

Kitchy on

You mean her new wig with bangs?
