Julia Roberts Gets an Edgy Makeover With New Bangs

Julia Roberts has switched up her signature hairstyle. On March 27, the "Ticket to Paradise" star debuted new bangs at the Watches and Wonders Geneva event in Switzerland, where she spoke on a panel as a Chopard brand ambassador. Celebrity hairstylist Serge Normant executed the makeover, giving Roberts eyelash-grazing fringe that blended into shaggy face-framing layers. The actor hard-launched her haircut on Instagram, posting a photo of herself modeling a Chopard design in a lavender Nells Nelson suit. "'Wanna Buy a Watch?'" she captioned the picture.

Roberts's bangs are a noticeable departure from the middle part, medium-length hairstyle that's become her go-to in recent years. Throughout her career, she's mostly alternated between auburn and blond shades, but Roberts also temporarily dyed her hair light pink for a flamingo Halloween costume in 2018.

It seems the itch for bangs is spreading through Hollywood this month, as many other celebrities have experimented with similar cuts. Just last week, Olivia Wilde unveiled "French-girl" curtain bangs, and the week prior, Leighton Meester hit the red carpet with choppy micro bangs. Other stars who've hopped on the bandwagon this year, whether through an actual haircut or a wig, include Gabrielle Union, Paris Hilton, and Blackpink's Jisoo.
