Olivia Rodrigo Talked to Her Stylist About This Retro Style For "Months" Before Her New Cut
The curtain bangs comeback is still going strong, and now, "Drivers License" singer Olivia Rodrigo is dipping her toe into the trend. We first noticed her new look during a SiriusXM interview; she later shared a mirror selfie of her haircut on Instagram. For a style rooted in nostalgia, it looks magnificently modern on Rodrigo.
Curtain bangs can certainly vary in look and drama. Rodrigo's bangs, for example, are closer to face-framing layers than the full textured fringe we've seen on other stars. However, there's no denying where her stylist, Clayton Hawkins, drew inspiration from. "We had talked about doing curtain bangs for like 6 months and she finally decided it was time to make the cut!" Hawkins told POPSUGAR. "Her hair is so beautiful and long, but we just wanted to shake things up and make a change. Our inspo was '70s brushed out face framing bangs." It appears Hawkins also took Rodrigo's hair slightly darker in color, neutralizing her golden-brown ends — a subtle yet sweet change.
