What's Up with Zoe Kravitz's Bangs?

While Brittany Snow and Michelle Monaghan are dyeing their hair red for fall, stars like Carrie Underwood and Zoe Kravitz are updating their hairstyles with blunt bangs.

But unlike Underwood, who debuted flattering, eyebrow-grazing bangs in September, Kravitz has been working an uber-short set that hits inches above her eyebrows, right in the middle of her forehead.

In the past, the X-Men actress has sported longer bangs that complemented her face shape and shoulder-length hair nicely. But for now, these awkward bangs look as if a kindergartner chopped them off during a DIY haircut.

To avoid rocking unflattering, too-short fringe like the 22-year-old starlet, try these tips for cutting your bangs at home:

"Using any ordinary scissor, start with small sections of hair and snip vertically," Us Weekly Beauty Director Gwen Flamberg says. "If you snip horizontally the bangs will be uneven and too blocky." Remember: you can always take away more so err on the more conservative side to avoid trimming away too much.
