kim kardashianBreaking news, everybody! Kim Kardashian cut bangs! That's right, you heard it here first. The sexy celeb's signature hairstyle -- parted-down-the-middle, sexy waves (or a tight, slicked-back bun) -- now has company: Blunt, cropped, Zooey Deschanel-esque bangs. And of course, they look fantastic on her.

But Kim -- bad idea, baby girl. You have heard what bangs do to you ... haven't you?

They make you remorseful for cutting them! They're cute, and fun, and different for the first three or four weeks, but after that -- you're going to be dying for those bad boys to grow out, so you can have your old, non-annoying hair back. (Yes, bangs can be classified as "annoying." They don't leave your face; they obstruct your view; and they make your forehead break out.)

I'm speaking from experience here. I've cut bangs many times in my life. In fact, just this Christmas Eve, after seeing a woman with a particularly awesome haircut, I contemplated chopping a set myself. But then I came to my senses. Because I know they're only fun once in a while. When you have them every day, they're a frustrating, irritating hassle. Of course, unless you have stick-straight hair that doesn't require a paddle brush and a hair-dryer to "tame them" each morning, which I -- and Kim -- do not. You just wait, KK, when you're on your second week or so of waking up with bangs that are sticking straight up into the air, Something About Mary-style, you'll be sorry ... that is if you really cut bangs ...

See, I'm kind of wondering if Kim actually went for the plunge here. It's a bold move. Particularly for her. She seems to have a rotation of very specific (bangless) hairstyles in her repertoire. I'm thinking she may have just sported one of those clip-in bang headband things instead of going for the real deal.

And if that's the case, good move. She looks lovely with bangs, but I've gotta be honest, in addition to the inevitable exasperation they'll cause her, I think I prefer Kim without.

Do you like Kim's new bangs ... if they're real?
