Girls try to make Beetlejuice bangs happen
goth baby Lydia Deetz and her spiky baby bangs and tousled bun prove to be beauty inspiration for fashion girls. The look started creeping into our lives in February when Alexa Half sported pointed bangs to The cupit is Euphoria cast iron turning. Courtesy of Evanie Fraustojet black hair and choppy, parted bangs couldn’t help but be compared to the iconic beetle juice hairdressing.
Hot on the heels of Demie came Billie Eilish, who swapped her platinum blonde hair for black at the Grammys in April. The sketchy, blunt bangs and spiky ’90s bun screamed Lydia Deetz, as did the hairstyle Eilish wore for the Met Gala the next month. While the bangs may have been thinner, the back was certainly pointed enough to draw comparisons to Winona Ryder’s character — and a lot of people just do that.
But the tributes don’t stop there. Yesterday, Beyonce revealed it last cover with British vogue, before new music arrives next month. Photographed by Rafael Pavarotti, the shoot sees the majestic singer pose on various props, including a huge disco ball and a horse. In one picture, hairdresser Jawara gave the singer very uneven zigzag bangs. Amidst the utter opulence of the crystal-encrusted gold-tone Schiaparelli Haute Couture coat and earrings, the fringe provides a nice, bolder contrast. A mix between beetle juice and the haircut a toddler could give himself if handed a pair of scissors.
Although there has been a sudden influx of Lydia Deetz hair this year, the look has already inspired the fashion world. For her A/W 2020 fashion show, Haider Ackerman sent Bella Hadid down the catwalk in a huge black puffy wig with very spiky baby bangs. The look was completed with bleached eyebrows and a ghostly complexion.
