To be fair, I myself had bangs for a long time, so I understand the impulse. Except my impulse stemmed half from a break-up and half from watching The Devil Wears Prada so maybe I wasn’t JUST MAKING BAD DECISIONS. Not like Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. With her new dumb bangs.
A lot of people have been saying that the look channels Princess Diana – Yahoo News for instance, remarks that “now with her feathered hair her overall appearance is reminding us even more of the late Princess of Wales.” You can sort of get a glimpse of that effect here:
Look, Princess Diana was lovely. We all agree on that, I think. And the bangs themselves aren’t bad on either one of them. They’re both very attractive! But if anything, Kate needs to use this time to establish her own style that doesn’t remind every news outlet of the late Princess of Wales. And her hair was fabulous! Just as it was! If anything, her gently curling hair is one of the things that people immediately think about when they think of Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, I am never sure which one we’re calling her. I’m afraid that this portends a rocky descent into shortened or straight hair, and then I will cry, because I am only just figuring out how to get my hair looking like Kate Middleton’s, now. And I’m doing it pretty well. And it took me a year to grow out my bangs entirely.
So basically, Kate Middleton’s bangs suck because I am sad.
