Bangs or no bangs: that is the question!

Sporting heavy bangs can be a statical look for some, but Jennifer Garner proves you can switch up the fringe with just a few simple tweaks. 

The Alias actress presented the illusion that her medium-length bangs were no more at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday, Oct. 20 in Beverly Hills, and she shared her secret with Us Weekly on the red carpet.

“[Celebrity hairstylist] Jenny Cho has done my hair the last couple of nights and she’s just like, ‘Let’s just change it up!” Garner told Us. “It really is a big topic of conversation."


Dressed in a purple sequined Chanel dress, Garner, 42, had the front of her hair slicked down and pinned off to the side for a new look. The relaxed hairstyle played well with the Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day star’s brown smoky eye makeup.

The mom of three added a similar twist to her go-to hairstyle at the Elyse Walker 10th Annual Pink Party on Saturday, Oct. 18. Her usual bangs were out of sight, and tucked behind her ear in sleek center-parted look.
