Dua Lipa Reveals That Her New Short Bangs Weren’t Exactly Intentional
Untouchable and invincible as they may seem, celebrities are still susceptible to the everyday beauty woes we plebeians deal with. Take Dua Lipa, for example. The “Physical” singer just debuted brand-new bangs born not out of the desire to experiment with a fresh look but rather of necessity due to some bleach-related damage.
Ever since the end of 2019, Lipa’s been rocking a cool two-toned hairstyle that’s bright blond on top and black underneath, consistently opting for ’90s-style face-framing tendrils or barrettes and a centre part. But this week, she stepped out in New York City with bangs, which we haven’t seen on her since she went full-on Dora the Explorer (in the chicest way possible, obviously) last September. Her new bangs are blond and fringy and hit well above her eyebrows. In a now-deleted post on Instagram Stories, the 24-year-old artist informed her followers, “PSA: this is not a haircut. It’s bleached breakages but im runnin w it.”
This came just a few months after a similar mishap fell upon Billie Eilish, who accidentally hopped aboard the mullet bandwagon when parts of her neon-green hair literally burned off during the dyeing process. The unfortunate situation wound up favouring both singers, but not every hair-dye aficionado can be so lucky.
