It’s the same back and forth YouTuber Aubri Ibrag experienced before she decided to cut her fringe.
During a recent appearance on Girlfriend’s Beauty Boss podcast, the 19-year-old told us who inspired her haircut and it’s none other than the lead singer of the British rock band, Queen!
“I’m obsessed with Freddie Mercury and I loved his fashion so much, I think he’s so iconic,” she said.
“I looked back at the older photos of him and he had bangs and short hair and I just really wanted to embrace the look and like I really, really, really love Freddie Mercury. He was like a real inspiration for me and I thought why not just do it. I thought about it for a few weeks, it lingered on my mind and I was like ‘Yep, let’s do it!’”
Aubri also revealed that her bangs caused somewhat of a commotion amongst her social media followers.
“When I cut my bangs, some people were telling me ‘Oh you shouldn’t have done this, you were so much better before,’” she told Girlfriend.
“And that really irritated me because I feel like that was one of the first times that people actually did criticise what I was doing with my own hair, like they were entitled, like they felt like they had a say in what I do with my hair but that’s when I do it more, that’s when I really own it.”
Let the girl live!
