Lea Michele's Asymmetric Bangs: Obsessed or Hot Mess?

One editor forwarded this pic of Lea Michele to another with the note “Is anything looking … different about her bangs to you?” The short answer: Yes. The long answer: Yes, and “different” in this sentence has two meanings.

Though Michele is known to change up her bangs on the regular, they certainly haven’t been looking like this on the set of Glee, where they’ve been full and lush. Just last week at an album listening event, they were all one length. So last night’s look was not only a departure from her usual look, it was a decision to go shorter, but only on one side.

Michele has the face to pull off pretty much anything, but these short-on-one-side, long-on-the-other, piecey, chunky bangs are tricky even for her. But maybe we’re just behind on bang trends, so we’re putting this up to a vote.

I don’t think her bangs are cut like this. It looks like she took hair from further back to make the one side longer.if you look you can tell.

How about a third option: She looks amazing and can clearly do whatever she wants to with her hair, but any normal person would look like they got in a fight with a weed whacker.

Reblogged this on Lita's Corner.

Look at those nails! Love her hair!

On her it looks cute, by the way, she has beautiful hair. On me however, I’d look like I was on a “bender”, and I’d be committed.

Did she move during her haircut or something? I don’t get the style here…

Hard to believe this was done purposely. Note to gals: blunt cut bangs do NOT look good on most people. To name a few:

Heidi “man killer” Klum
Eva “serial dater” Longoria
Catherine “gigglesnorts” Giudici Lowe Overexposed Smith

I did that once in the 7th grade….not on purpose haha
She has great hair and if she did it on purpose, good for her trying something new. I personally wouldn’t it would drive me nuts!

Johnny Marlin on

I don’t Nose the answer

Forget about the hair…those nails!!!! I cannot for the life of me understand the obsession is with pointy nails. I would think that after the first time of poking yourself in the eye with one they’d be filed down to a more manageable shape. I’d also be afraid of scratching myself in a delicate area after using the bathroom. Although I bet they make great backscratchers!
