Like Zooey Deschanel, you are no doubt tiring of dying your hair dark brown every two weeks when your roots grow in, and your rotator cuffs are starting to wear from holding up the hairdryer to inject va-va-voom into your long locks. You are also suffering severe bang regret. Ah, the bangs. The ever-growing, sometimes crooked, always misbehavin' bangs. Each day you would ask yourself: Why did I get bangs? And the answer is: because Zooey.

Well now Zooey is leading us into a new era of carefree bob-ness, replete with the side-swept bangs debuted at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Then, pop on your favorite boop-y dress and say every sentence as if it's a question?
