First Jessica Biel got them. Then Beyonce was sporting frontal fringe. And now bangs have gotten the royal stamp of approval.

Kate Middleton has changed up her shiny shoulder-length locks for the first time … well, ever.

Stepping out at the new Treasures gallery at the Natural History Museum in London on Tuesday, the posh princess made headlines for something other than her outfit (though the green Mulberry dress was another hit — but more on that later), debuting her new bangs.

Yes, ladies, book your appointment at the hair salon now, because once the Duchess of Cambridge is behind a trend, you better believe it’s going to be copied by girls around the world.

Opting for eye-grazing fringe, the Duchess’ longer bangs flatter her face shape and add extra bounce to her already impossibly bouncy strands.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that Middleton paired her new ‘do with a new knife-pleated emerald Mulberry dress with a built-in belt and her favorite black pumps.

Showing off the versatility of the longer bangs, the Princess styled them to the side Farrah Fawcett-style and paired them with her winter staple — a belted coat — for another appearance with Prince William today.
