Did you notice that Katy Perry was wearing bangs last night? That’s okay, we wouldn’t blame you if you missed them altogether. After all, she was wearing a whole lotta dress to the Beatles tribute event: a giant pink-and-purple rose print ballgown with matching cape.

But now that we’ve drawn your attention back to her hair, it’s time to discuss. The star is revisiting a look that used to be her signature — thick, full bangs — though this time, they’re less blunt than they used to be when she was in her pin-up girl phase. The new fringe was choppier, piecier and more gamine, peaking in the center of her forehead.

We’re guessing these are bangs are likely “one night only”: A clip-in piece worn to add a little edge to a toothache-sweet outfit. However, they look so natural on her that we forgot for a moment that she’s been bangs-free for months. So we’re wondering if Perry is testing the waters for a return to fringe? And more importantly, should she commit? Do you miss the bangs or do you like her best without? Tell us below!
