Bangs are back in a big way!

A slew of our favorite celebrities like Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, Rachel Zoe and the First Lady Michelle Obama are rocking frontal fringe these days.

The cut serves as an unspoken style statement for woman everywhere, allowing them to effortlessly cross over into bold, new hair-itory.

Beauty expert Ryan Nickulas of Ryan Darius Salon says, “Bangs are better than Botox — especially for the girl on a budget. It’s a sexy, sultry cut that adds the freshness most of us need in the winter.”

He adds, “The style looks great on every woman, regardless of the texture of her hair, length, color or shape of her face. And since we’re not dealing with the humidity of summer, “Now is the best time to take the plunge with bangs.”
