Naomi Osaka's New Bangs Are the Definition of Sporty Chic

In the heat of the 2023 US Open, Naomi Osaka is making headlines for a different reason. On Sept. 6, the tennis star participated in a mental health forum alongside Michael Phelps, titled "Mental Health and Sport: Why It Matters." For the occasion, Osaka revealed a new haircut: bangs.

Accompanied by loose curls, Osaka's fresh cut was a cross between wavy and blunt bangs. They were slightly curled inward to frame her face and the edges perfectly blended into the rest of her hair. She brought the entire look together with a yellow dress that matched her eyeshadow, a nude lip color, and neutral nails. This also marked Osaka's first public appearance since welcoming her first child, a baby girl, in July.

Bangs are one of the more versatile haircut options on the market, simply because of how many versions there are when considering the look, as well as the numerous ways in which you can style them. If you're considering your own, there are countless celebrities who have tried their hands at the trend. From Kim Kardashian's blunt bangs to Joey King's "Birkin" bangs, your mood board is about to be filled to the brim with enough bang hairstyles to give you years of inspiration. Take a closer look at Osaka's new haircut below.
