Snooki might be doling out pregnancy wisdom to the Duchess of Cambridge, but Rose Byrne is sharing tips with Kate on that other exciting, new development in her royal life: those bangs.

Kate cut her hair last week, and who better to offer maintenance and styling advice than Byrne, who’s had bangs for almost two years. “When you’re blow-drying your hair, always do [the bangs] first. Because otherwise, at least with my hair, if I wait then they’ve already curled up and become really out of control,” Byrne recently told The Cut.

The actress went into more detail, explaining, “I just get the brush and blow-dry them flat.” Byrne then laughed and joked, “I’m sure she’s curious about what I would tell her.”

Though, as far as her own face-framing fringe goes, Byrne is actually considering getting rid of her trim. “Harry Josh, my hairdresser, just gave me a haircut yesterday. I’m just growing them out in a better way,” she says. Think Kate will follow in Bryne’s footsteps and grow out her bangs, too? Tell us: Do you prefer the Duchess with or without bangs?

They aren’t bangs. Bangs are not longer than your face. They are just shorter layers in front. Sheesh.

seriously??? are the writers at people now trolling?

lulu on

I don’t think that growing out her bangs is on Kate’s mind right now.

I think I’ll follow her lead.

Kate’s hair is beautiful. Those are not bangs, they are layers.
She doesn’t need any hair advice. She does her hair perfectly.

Everyone needs to lighten up a little because I am pretty sure this was meant as a joke! Clearly we all know now that Kate has more things to worry about than her bangs..

Pam on

Those aren’t bangs and Kate always looks gorgeous! She doesn’t need hair or style advice from anyone and I’m sure she has no clue who Rose Byrne is and neither do I really lol

Seriously? Some people are so shallow and have such tunnel vision. The woman just got out of the hospital, I think she is more worried about her unborn child than her “bangs” which by the way they aren’t. The idiot giving her “advice” needs a new line of work if she can’t tell the difference between bangs and layers

Ok the woman just got out of the hospital and I’m sure she’s more worried about her baby than her looks…really people grow up

I agree with Lulu on this one. The last thing on Kate’s mind is her hair and how it looks. After all Kate was just getting out of the hospital after being severly ill with morning sickness. I think that some people need to put their mind to something other than fashion and looks and stay out of Kate’s life. For God’s sake leave her alone.

Me on

who is rose byrne and why does she care? its kate’s life and if she’s happy having bangs then so be it.
