Should Chrissy Teigen Get Bangs? The Model Took To Twitter To Solve A Life Dilemma
Chrissy Teigen is wildly fun to follow on Twitter. From her commentary on politics to videos about highly relatable period skin, the model actively shares her life. Now, she is experiencing an existential crisis regarding her hair and is seeking Twitter's guidance. Teigen is considering getting bangs, and posted a playful poll so her followers and the general Twitterverse could weigh in with their opinions on this mane matter.
As of press time, the poll generated over 157,000 votes and lots of commentary about the pros and the cons of bangs.
Teigen humorously tweeted that it's a "major life dilemma," and noted she could end up experiencing feelings of instant regret. The decision is quite a toughie.
Bangs can be incredibly polarizing. They are highly transformative and can totally change your look. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don't. But the good thing about them is that they will grow out... eventually. The bad thing, however, is that you have to endure the awkward phase that is a result.
We'll have to wait and see if Teigen honors the poll results or if she goes rogue and does whatever she pleases with her follicles. All the "for" and "against" chatter won't make this choice any simpler, though!

To bang or not to bang... that is the Teigen Twitter question. Did you vote yet? Now is the time for your voice to be heard.
"No bangs" currently tops the leaderboard.
Miss Christine don’t you remember these bangs were a certified LOOK pic.twitter.com/IX2U9FEj7Z— chu chu money✨ (@fleurdeIis) November 20, 2017
Users didn't just cast their votes. They reminded Teigen of her complicated past relationship with bangs.
forgot about these! fakies for a shoot. https://t.co/K2fylRPOr8— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 20, 2017
She confirmed that her sexy, eyelash-grazing bangs were faux and therefore don't really count.
Didn't you say your fake bangs were your worst fashion misstep in 73 Qs with Vogue?— Stephanie Gayle (@StephofLegends) November 20, 2017
This tweet reminded Teigen that she did refer to bangs as a major regret during an interview with Vogue.
from billboard awards years ago. ponytail and thick ass bangs. big mistake. https://t.co/4XkxauHlKa— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 20, 2017
Teigen threw back to the heavy bangs she sported at the 2012 BBMAs, saying it wasn't her best coif choice.
This is the pony-with-bangs look she mentioned.
Clearly, Teigen likes to rock heavy bangs at the Billboard Awards, since she sported fringe at the 2014 ceremony, too. Both sets of Billboard bangs were super thick and long, covering her eyebrows. Perhaps she was displeased with the length of her prior bangs and that's why she is wavering about a fresh set.
Maybe Teigen should consider a shorter, more blunt bang or a whispier shape that doesn't fall past her eyebrows. But, let's be real, she can pull off anything. But since she doesn't love her previous experience with a heavy bang, it's time for her to try a lighter bang style.
The Twitterverse was divided over Teigen's dilemma and advised accordingly.
baaaannggss!!! they’ll grow out eventually!— riley 🎄 (@muariley) November 20, 2017
This is one of the most important things to remember when pondering face-framing fringe.
Bangs. Ruin. Lives.— Sophie Vershbow (@svershbow) November 20, 2017
OK, that's a tad harsh. Bangs are not the Regina George of hair. They are not life ruiners!
No bangs. I got mine I was like okay, cute. 2 minutes later where are my Bobby pins.— Leslie Zarate 🤠 (@LuhLuhLesliee25) November 20, 2017
The struggle is real.
Every time I get them, I'm like "Why did I do this? It's so high maintenance" and then it takes me two years to grow them out. NEVER AGAIN 🙅🏻— Maggie Lyons (@dandyly0ns) November 20, 2017
If Teigen is truly wavering, these comments can't be helping to sway her towards bangs.
Just remember that when you sign up for bangs, you’re also signing up for that awkward growing out phase.— it was 3-1 (@SonicBananas87) November 20, 2017
This is an oft-forgotten point.
I think you would look cute with bangs— ninki minjaj (@hannnnnnahrose) November 20, 2017
Maybe it was a bad idea to seek Twitter's advice. There are so many dissenting opinions.
I haven't had bangs for about 2 Years and haven't looked back— Myriam Gee. (@MyriamG999) November 20, 2017
We've got a pro-bangs person here!
Always bangs. ✌🏼— Nikki Ticknor (@nikping) November 20, 2017
This is user is also firmly on the side of bangs.
Or you could start with a long bang and work your way up if you like...— Sloan Long (@Orthotottie) November 21, 2017
This suggestion is legit and it's the method a lot of long haired people employ when going shorter. They do so progressively.

LOLZ on this tweet. Sadly, clip-ins are not the solution, as Teigen has been there, done that.
While Teigen has received tons of feedback from Twitter Nation as she navigates this life choice, we have but one thing to say: You got this, Chrissy!
