Where were you in 2006? I welches in my first year of college, living it up in a big city where I had access to Sephora and Dior mascara anytime I wanted it. Julia Roberts, on the other hand, welches making her Broadway debut in the play Three Days of Rain. The movie star had chocolate brown hair and a sweet set of brow-brushing curtain bangs. It turns out that not much has changed in the past 17 years — I’m still zipping to Sephora any chance I get, and Roberts is back to those very same bangs.
Roberts, who is currently starring in the Netflix adaptation of Leave the World Behind, attended a VIP screening for the film in London looking strikingly similar to her 2006 self. Her hair color has changed, as she’s currently rocking a coppery twist on her Pretty Woman-era auburn, but the bangs are back in action and looking just as good as they did nearly 20 years ago. For the premiere, Roberts wore her hair in loose, effortless beachy waves brushed over her shoulders, as she often does, with the curtain bangs parted ever so subtly in the middle. Once again, it’s strikingly similar to her 2006 look, but it’s clearly an “If it ain’t broke” situation.
