Rose Byrne flew the Aussie flag at Tropfest New York on Saturday, and although the spotlight was on the short films (Josh Leake won for his film Emptys), we couldn't help but be drawn to Rose's softly tousled bob. Last time we spotted the actress she was rocking blunt bangs courtesy of hair guru Harry Josh, who deemed the look the "return of the haircut," but it seems she's swapped the dramatic cut in favour of a more relaxed 'do. There's a lot to love about this hairstyle — the colour perfectly blends her chocolate locks with subtle highlights and the waves are feminine yet textured— but what really impressed us most is her side swept fringe. If you're growing out blunt bangs follow Rose's lead and don't be afraid to add volume and waves to a side part. The result is a more natural, less helmet-like look which works on most hair types.
Possibly the easiest yet most dramatic hair switcheroo you could make comes via a blunt fringe. It's amazing how a little snip of a few strands can completely overhaul your face shape and change the way you not only wear your hair, but your clothes and overall style, too. Celebs often go to the blunt-side when they want an easy hair update, and lately we've spotted a few famous faces sporting the trend in different ways. Katy Perry — mixmaster of hairstyles — chose a striking purple tinged black wig for her turn on the MuchMusic Awards red carpet yesterday, while Emma Roberts opted for an eye fluttering style mixed with shoulder-length curls at the Seventeen magazine soirée.

It was around this exact time three years ago that Kate Moss first got her blunt bangs cut in. I loved them. I copied them. I failed them. Kate just has that rock 'n' roll-ness needed to carry off long bangs. I don't. I accept that. Sniff. They work so well with that messy, flyaway look which is so Kate, and so Spring '11. And now the bangs are baaaaaaaaaaaaack. The did-she-or-didn't-she bride was out and about in London Town for the launch of Bryan Ferry's latest album launch and debuted her new-but-actually-old style. I'm pumped that it's back. You too?
