Hilary Duff Debuts a Bangin’ New Hairdo Just in Time for Summer

Hilary Duff just got a new mama makeover.

She’s had pink hair, icy blonde hair and now, just in time for summer, the 31-year-old new mom (to daughter Banks) debuted a brand-new set of ’70s-esque bangs.

Duff flaunted her look in an Instagram selfie and her celebrity hairstylist Nikki Lee, co-founder of Nine Zero One salon in Los Angles, filled PureWow in on the behind-the-scenes details.

“Well @nikkilee901 came thru with these fly ’70s summer bangers and @allanface face painted me up right and @highheelprncess got me this gorgeous flowing dress with some sassy [a**] boots. Mama feeling good,” Duff captioned her photo. 

Lee explained the genesis of Duff’s hair transformation, saying, “Hilary’s been toying around with the idea of bangs for a few weeks. I just ignored her hoping she would forget about them!” Totally been there with our own hairstylist.

Ultimately, Lee caved and gave Duff’s summer blonde hair a little more life. “Today we just went for it and we’re so glad we did! Instead of doing a full-on bang we opted for more of a curtain bang that sweeps to both sides. The vibe is very ’70s and a perfect way to switch up her look,” Lee told PureWow.

If “Should we get bangs?” is the question we’re constantly asking ourselves, then the curtain bang feels like a happy medium. And, hey, if you end up getting sick of them, they don’t take all that long to grow out.

Total hair win-win.
