Ever wonder how celebrities manage to look so youthful on the red carpet? Sure, their fitness routines and skincare routines have something to do with their age-defying look, but their hair also plays a big part. In fact, most A-listers have been following the same haircut trend lately to get younger-looking locks for the red carpet–bangs!
