(Flynet) Taylor Swift (Flynet)
, known for her impossibly long tresses, soft waves and romantic updos, attended the 6th Annual Billboard
Women in Music event rocking a much edgier look. Her recent haircut involved more exaggerated layering and sexy, lash-grazing bangs.
Instead of the sweet, girlish updos we're used to seeing, Taylor's new crop gives her a much more sophisticated appearance. She's been emphasizing her eyes with lashes and lovely shades of liner, but the bangs really work to bring out her baby blues more than mere cosmetics. The cut is chic and extremely polished and paired with her cherry red satin dress, she seems to have grown up overnight.
The songstress will soon be celebrating her 22nd birthday and perhaps the sultry bangs are a move toward creating a more adult vibe. Taylor's hair still has plenty of length, though, leaving her all the versatility of her former style and ensuring she'll continue to impress us with more imaginative updos.
