Kaley Cuoco's Red Carpet Tip: 'If You're Going With Bangs or a Black Eye - Go With the Black Eye'

Kaley Cuoco is used to receiving accolades, but after wearing controversial bangs to the 2013 SAG Awards, the actress learned how it feels to be panned.

“I got reamed a new A-hole,” The Big Bang Theory star, 27, told PEOPLE on Wednesday at The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo’s Most Powerful Stylists luncheon. “I will never do that again! That was my faux pas, and because of that, they hated everything: the [Romona Keveza] dress, my shoes, everything.”

She swears the bangs were supposed to serve a purpose: “I had a black eye, so we were trying to hide it,” she says. “Next time, if you’re going with a black eye or bangs, go with the black eye.”

But at the time she made the decision, there was no stopping her.

“I know what I want, so even if everyone said ‘Bangs don’t look great,’ I loved them,” she said at the West Hollywood Soho House event, dressed in a colorful McGinn ensemble. “I think that on the carpet, they read worse than they did at home … I just accepted it and made fun of myself and moved on. You show up at the next one and you look fabulous and fine and they make fun of someone else.”

And the mishap certainly does not reflect poorly on her stylist, Tara Swennen, who’s No. 24 on the Hollywood Reporter top stylists ranking.

“She has changed my career and life – not only as a friend, but she’s also an amazing mentor,” Cuoco said of her date for the lunch. “Before I started working with a stylist, I used to think I could do it all on my own, but no matter how much fashion you have in your brain and what you feel you know about your body, it is nice to have help.”

I thought Kaley looked cute with bangs, reminds me of her first scene in The Big Bang Theory.

Kaley seems like such a sweet lady, I totally love her!

She looks like a young Dolly Parton with bangs

Denise on

I really like the bangs, I think it’s the rest of the cut and the color that don’t suit her. But she’s adorable either way!

She looks good either way, but I like her better without the bangs. The first picture with the bangs does not look like her real hair. It looks like a wig.

The bangs are not the best look on her but no big deal!

Lisa on

I think the bangs would have looked better if the style and cut were better. But she does look better overall without bangs.

Kim on

I don’t think it’s the bangs that look bad, it’s the entire hair-do. Styled differently I think the bangs would be fine on her. That ‘do’ is just w-a-y too blonde and looks like a wig.

Sophia on

It looks like a wig. Very unhealthy an fake. She is gorgeous but would look better with a tad darker hair and less length…
