When Elizabeth Olsen showed up on set for Grazia‘s cover shoot, she debuted a brand new hairstyle: Not only had the dirty blonde gone brunette, but she also was rocking a set of curtain-like bangs, which hung just above her baby blue eyes. “I am always in a wig! So I’m excited to have a cut-cut,” she told Emma Elwick-Bates.

But this isn’t the Marvel actress’s first dalliance with fringe: In late 2018, Olsen stepped out onto the red carpet at the 2018 Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards in Los Angeles with soft, feathered lengths snipped just short enough to still show off her feline flicks. Throughout the following year, she served up a masterclass in the oft-tricky art of styling the hairdo, wearing them straight across, swept to the side, or mussed-up and modern. Anyone considering picking up the scissors themselves, take note!

Below, Elizabeth Olsen’s best bang moments.
