Crushable Quiz: Guess The Celebrity Bangs

Zooey Deschanel Emmys 2013

Today is a very special day in the world of hair, because it’s Zooey Deschanel’s 34th birthday. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of Zooey Deschanel? No, besides how quirky and adorable she is. No, besides her beautiful blue Disney princess eyes. You think of her bangs, of course! At this point, God forbid Zooey Deschanel should decide to grow her bangs out and try a new style. It would be like Felicity all over again. There would be rioting in the streets. Bangs-havers would weep, having been betrayed by their idol. In short, Zooey Deschanel’s pretty well-known for her bangs.

In honor of Zooey and her lovely fringe, we thought it would be fun to put together a little quiz testing your knowledge of celebrity bangs. We’ll show you a photograph of a famous person with bangs, and you’ll have to identify them. The catch is that their face will be removed, so you’ll only have their hair (and some other context clues) to draw from. The birthday girl herself may or may not make an appearance. You’ll just have to figure that out yourself. Share your score in the comments if you’re proud of yourself, and don’t be alarmed if you finish this quiz and immediately run to the salon to get some bangs of your own (if you haven’t already).

      9 out of 10…not too shabby if I do say so myself.

      What a fun game! I can play over and over, and get a better score each time. :-)

      I don’t know whether to be impressed or sad with myself that I got 10/10….

        Ooh, you’re a bangs expert!

        I don’t know if I’m more ashamed of getting them all right or getting the last one right. Who is Austin Mahone and why do I know he had bangs???
