What were you wearing in 2007? Maybe a denim mini skirt paired with layered Abercrombie polos. Hair wise, there’s a chance you were rocking a seriously fine set of side-swept bangs. It was the hairstyle to have, along with some long face-framing layers that started at the chin, or maybe a choppy lob. And while we all thought the bangs style was done and retired, Ciara shows up and makes them appropriate for 2017.

The singer posted a picture of her new haircut—a longer lob with the bangs of the mid-aughts we love oh-so much. With her hair parted on the side, they have just the right about of flip and look incredibly chic with her ombréd highlights.


While Ciara has been wearing her hair long and layered in the recent past, she was spotted about five weeks ago with a similar length and bangs parted in the center, which made it look like a completely different type of cut.

Basically, never underestimate the power of a hair part.
