Nina Dobrev, the queen of vampire hearts and bangs alike, recently gifted the internet with a TikTok that can only be described as a hair-raising spectacle, and we're not talking about the good kind. Proving that even Hollywood's finest aren't immune to the age-old war against bedhead, Dobrev's video has already amassed an impressive 1.6 million views and over 34,000 likes. It seems her hair misadventure resonated with us common folk.
In the TikTok, Dobrev wakes up with her new bangs staging a full-blown rebellion against her forehead. With a voice so comically distorted it could give Alvin and the Chipmunks a run for their money, she muses, "Whose idea was it for me to get bangs?" And here's where things get hairy - quite literally. Dobrev's dog gives her a look that screams, "Girl, you need a hairbrush, stat!" But if you thought the judgment ended there, you're in for a surprise. Enter Shaun White, five-time Olympian and Dobrev's beau, who walks into the room, takes one look at her, and promptly exits. His parting words? "Oh sorry, wrong apartment." Even the love of her life can't handle the frizz frenzy! By the end of the clip, Dobrev concedes, her wild bangs still dancing around her face, "I can see now this was a mistake."
But here's the kicker: only weeks ago, Dobrev was strutting down the red carpet at the premiere of Netflix's The Outlaws, her bangs behaving themselves and adding a chic edge to her look. It's hard to believe these are the same bangs that later turned into a fluffy nightmare. In a 2017 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dobrev revealed that her decision to get bangs was as spontaneous as deciding to try a new ice cream flavor. Just two hours before hitting the red carpet for her film Flatliners, she decided to embrace the quintessential French cut for her role as a Parisian artist. While Dobrev makes rocking bangs look as easy as breathing, she confessed to PEOPLE in 2018 that maintaining them is a whole other story. Apparently, they add a hefty chunk of time to her morning routine.

Despite the extra work (and the occasional bedhead disaster), Dobrev seems thrilled to rock the bangs once more. In a recent Instagram post, she wrote, "She's bangin’ for the Outlaws premiere." Another post showed her sporting a faux mustache with her bangs, captioned with a cheeky "Chop, chop." So, all hail Nina, the bedhead queen who turned a hair disaster into viral content.
