It's a new style for Swift, yes, but not a new look altogether. It's a lot like, for example, Kelly Osbourne's hair at the Grammys two years ago.
And also pretty similar to the look Vogue editor/elfin queen Anna Wintour has rocked for the last 200 years.
Here's Swift's hair seen in its earliest configuration: Beverly Cleary kids book character Ramona Quimby (portrayed here by 10-year-old Joey King in the 2010 movie Beezus and Ramona).
A little shorter on the sides, but basically the same concept, on Kristen Wiig's beloved SNL character Target Lady.
And looking quite fetching on He-Man.
Has Taylor seen these "stylin'" clip-on bangs look you can get for your American Girl Doll?
Get Taylor Swift's new hair yourself, no stylist appointment needed: a quick trip to a wig shop or a date with some kitchen shears should do you right.
