Emma Roberts Debuts Edgy, Blunt Bangs at the Critics Choice Awards

Emma Roberts was joined by her fiancé Evan Peters at the awards show on Thursday in Santa Monica, California

Emma Roberts stepped out at the Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet while debuting a new look.

The Scream Queens star, 26, was joined by her fiancé Evan Peters at the awards show on Thursday in Santa Monica, California.

When it comes to her hair, Roberts has done it all. “This is kind of the one thing we haven’t done,” The star’s hairstylist, Nikki Lee of 901 Salon, tells PeopleStyle of the look, which she says was Roberts’ idea. “She been long, short, red, brunette, blonde. She’s been itching to try something different, so this was perfect way to do so without a full commitment.”

Which means that yes, the fringe was in fact faux. “Emma is wearing a bang piece,” Lee shares. “The key to making it look real is making sure the color matches your real hair and it’s not too shiny otherwise it will look like a wig.”

Roberts wore a white strapless silk satin Giorgio Armani column dress that she paired with a white one-button peak lapel satin jacket and Norman Silverman jewelry, while Peters went with a classic look in a black tuxedo.

While Roberts was there to support Peters on his nomination for best actor in a movie made for TV or limited series for his role in American Horror Story: Cult, it was her bangs that caught the most attention.


The star’s blonde bangs were an edgy new look for the actress as they ended just above her eyebrows. She also sported a structured gold clutch with pink lipstick.

Roberts is not a stranger to changing her looks. She’s gone from long, dark, auburn strands to a short blonde bob and then long again — all within the span of a few months.

“I go through phases,” she said in an interview in November. “Sometimes I like having long hair because I can put it up in a ponytail but I love having short hair because I can just roll out of bed.”

Roberts isn’t the only one debuting a new look. Emma Watson recently showed off baby bangs as well when she shared her bold new look last week.

Watson posted a selfie to promote a book she’s selected for her book club and included a glimpse of her new cut in the shot as well.

“Have you had a chance to pick up a copy of @oursharedshelf Jan/Feb book choice, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by @renieddolodge ?! #oursharedshelf,” she captioned the photo.
