Rachel Zoe snipped herself some bangs in September, and the celebrity stylist finally revealed what inspired her decision. “It was an impulse,” she told at the Baby2Baby Gala in Los Angeles this weekend, which raised funds and awareness for the west coast non-profit. “They’re from Fashion Week. The night before my fashion show, I was getting in the spirit because all the girls on the runway [wore] bangs.” Hairstylist Odile Gilbert then prompted her to make the cut. “I was so nervous that I wasn’t thinking!” That said, she loves the result. “It’s kind of nice because I get to hide under my hair. I’m keeping them.” See if bangs work for you—try them virtually in our Hollywood Makeover Tool.
