If there's one woman, other than Bettie Page, who can bring baby bangs back to life, it's Beyoncé Knowles. The proof is in the pudding — or, actually, in the paparazzi photos. She was recently spotted, with Jay Z and Blue Ivy in tow, at Paris's Gare du Nord train station sporting much, much shorter bangs than she's ever had before.
We all know Beyoncé's a hair chameleon. She can go from an edgy bob to long tresses (cue the iconic flip) with ease. But, her baby bangs are an entirely different story: This trend is notoriously difficult to pull off. In fact, a set like this typically signals a bad snip job — either by your own hand or by that of an asleep-at-the-wheel pro. But, on Beyoncé? Pure hair heaven. They're vintage without being cheesy, and they're just the right level of no-fuss.
While that's all well and good, anyone who has ever had mini fringe can attest that it doesn't always look 100% amazing after a solid eight hours of sleep. Can Beyoncé still manage to #WakeUpLikeThis after her newest style? We'll take a wild guess and say, "Hell, yes."
