Taylor Swift, Leighton Meester's Bang-Up Year: Hair Dos and Don'ts (Poll)

The award-winning pop singer and the "Gossip Girl" actress both cut bangs in 2011 and they may both spend 2012 growing them back out.

There's nothing like cutting bangs to make an instant hair statement. Snip, snip! And you've got 'em. The trouble is that once you cut bangs you've got bangs for quite a while, as anyone who has tried growing them out will attest. And if you don't like the look, you're looking at many months of wearing headbands or side hair clips. 

These two celebrities were brave enough to make the cut in 2011. Country/pop singer Taylor Swift's blunt bangs make her look less country girl and more edgy downtown girl. Our favorite Gossip Girl Leighton Meester's long dark brown fringe must give her a break from her character Blair Waldorf's polite Upper East Side do. 

Kristin Chenoweth could have been included in this Hairdo Round-Up but she confessed to Ellen Degeneres on her talk show that her new bangs were not real, just fake hair extensions.

Shhh. We would never have known, Kristin. And frankly, we don't want to know. We just found out that Jennifer Aniston wears hair extensions and our world will never be the same.
