Today, Kendall Jenner took to her paid app to reveal a few things about her relationship to fashion. First, that bleaching her eyebrows — like she did for the Marc Jacobs NYFW show — is the worst, because they have the highly annoying habit of falling out. But apparently, even patchy eyebrows was preferable to something else hair-related: bangs.

"People have asked me to get bangs, and I say, 'No way'" she wrote. Which is a fine attitude to have, of course!

Just one tiiiiiny thing, Kendall: May we direct your attention to your hair at November's American Music Awards? In which you had bangs? Like, real, fully-committed, straight-across, eyeball-dusting bangs?

Like, these are totally bangs, right? Sure, they're kind of longish and could maaaybe be disguised with a few skillfully placed barrettes, but definitely in the bangs-adjacent sphere, no?

Please advise.

Update: Kendall's team has indeed advised, and noted that Kendall's bangs at the American Music Awards were in fact faux fringe. As you were.
