I have bangs and now I look like Frodo from Lord of the Rings

A New Zealand woman went to the hairdresser and came back as if she were from Middle-earth.

Annie McElvein, 25, posted a now-viral TikTok before and after she frontbanged.

In the clip, the environmental studies student first captured her excitement in the car and on the way to her new haircut – but after she was cut, she held up a picture of Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins from ‘Lord of the Rings’.

McElvein’s bright blue eyes sparkled against her wet hair, making her look strikingly similar to the 41-year-old actor.

Luckily, McElvein, as she told South West News Service, found the humor in her new look.

“I didn’t ask to look like him, but I’m not upset about it,” she admitted. “I’m a huge ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan and when I realized it I was like, ‘Hell yeah.’

“When I say I’m the number one Lord of the Rings fan, I mean I can spend hours a day watching videos on YouTube. I talk about it at parties,” she added.

“I hope Elijah might see that I look just like him. I’d like to meet him — maybe he’d like to meet me,” McElvein said of their distant twin.

Her TikTok clip now has over 8.2 million views and more than 15,600 comments – many citing Dominic Monaghan, another “Rings” star,’s parody interview with Wood, in which he insistently asks if Wood wears wigs .

“The way I was going to comment you wear wigs but everyone else is beating me,” one person wrote.

“I knew the comments would be about wigs I pant,” laughed another commenter.

“You said bangs and the stylist got Baggins wrong,” joked one.

“Did you spot that resemblance before the cut or was it an epiphany afterward?” another asked McElvein about the resemblance.

“This is scary how accurate it is,” added another.

The Post has reached out to a Wood representative for comment.
