Bangs are definitely back. Add Taylor Swift to the list of country superstars sporting shorter hair up front, as she tweeted this new haircut picture (seen on the right) this morning. Previously, Carrie Underwood lopped off her long blonde hair in an effort to look good for holiday pictures — not that either woman was in need of a makeover.
“Got a haircut,” is all Swift tweeted just after 9AM ET on Thursday. The picture on the right is of her new, more mature hairdo, while the one on the left is from the Nov. 20 American Music Awards. Swift’s hair is naturally curl,y and she has said before that it is very tiresome to straighten it every day. More likely we’ll see some combination of curls and bangs during future television and red carpet appearances.
Last night, Swift learned she was nominated for three Grammy awards, including Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for ‘Mean’ and Best Country Album for ‘Speak Now.’ The Grammys are on Feb. 12 on CBS.
