We’ve filled out our Oscar ballots and predicted the gowns, now the PEOPLE StyleWatch team is ready to talk hair.

Bold bangs are sizzling hot in Hollywood right now: Amy Poehler’s just the latest star to step out with fringe, which is why we’re hoping for a big bang debut at the Oscars. Now we just have to decide who will follow in the footsteps of Michelle Obama, LeAnn Rimes and Poehler, all who have gotten sassy chops in the last month. Here are our front runners:

Amanda Seyfried: The actress has had these long, layered golden locks since her Mean Girls days, so we’re ready for her to spice it up a bit. Seyfried, call your stylist and request some side-swept bangs. They’re flattering, flirty and not-too-frightening for a first-timer … and let’s be honest, you wouldn’t mind stealing some of that Les Mis spotlight from Anne Hathaway come Sunday night.

Jessica Chastain: Chastain already gives us major mane envy, which is why the star is a prime candidate for a blunt bangs cut à la Jessica Biel. Just think how chic she’d look if she wore her tresses straight with serious statement stunners — and since she’s been sporting dramatic hairstyles throughout awards season, we bet she’d dare to try something similar at the Oscars.

Bradley Cooper: Given that he’s one of the sexiest men alive, we’re not telling him to change much, but a little cleanup to his already face-framing locks could do wonders for Cooper‘s floppy hairdo.

Who do you think should try bangs at the Oscars? Vote below and sound off in the comments!

My wife owns her own salon in NYC and says that ever since Mrs.Obama went with bangs they are now the most sought after hair style going. She said it scares her when the purple haired grandmas insist on bangs but she gives them what they want regardless.

Mrs. Obama’s look nice. Amy looks cute with bangs. LeeAnne though……OMG. She needs to go back to the salon and get a refund. Her bangs and overall hair look horrific.

Bangs are for people who don’t have the money or time for Botox, the only one that looks good in Bangs is Taylor Swift.
