Even Queen Bey isn’t immune to the baby bang craze. Beyoncé memorably sported a thick fringe back in 2014, striking the perfect balance between vintage and cool.


At the Oscars in 2018, Emma Watson showed up sporting a ‘70s-style fringe, which was equal parts edgy and chic. A subtle wave complemented her micro bangs perfectly.


FKA Twigs loves an otherworldly beauty look and this one is no exception. The singer’s blonde baby bangs matched her bleached brows, contrasting her smoky eye makeup and Cleopatra-style plait.

Bella Hadid is no stranger to a good micro fringe, but she really upped the ante in 2018 by combining her baby bangs with a super dramatic eye and a retro ponytail.
