Paige Spiranac has a new thing and she’s super emotional about it.
The former golfer-turned-sports influencer sported bangs and revealed the new look in a selfie on Instagram on Wednesday.
Spiranac’s hair, which appeared slightly darker than her usual light blonde locks, featured facial layers around her bangs.
She gushed about the cut on the latest episode of her podcast, Playing a Round, and explained her “difficult” history with bangs.
“It’s been a bit of a slow week with personal news. I think the most exciting thing for me is having bangs,” said an excited Spiranac.
“I had a very difficult relationship with Pony. I had this feeling that I could just do bangs my whole life, but I never could. I think here’s why, every time I’ve cut bangs before, it’s because I’ve had a nervous breakdown. And I cut them myself.”
Spiranac said her relationship with Pony started in high school and then “got really bad” in college. She played Division 1 collegiate golf at both the University of Arizona and San Diego State University.
“In my sophomore year, I had a boy who broke up with me. I cut my own bangs and locked myself in my room, and my roommate said, ‘Don’t do it, Paige,'” Spiranac recalled. “I cut them off and it looked awful, so I had to wear them cut back for a whole semester until they grew out.
The same thing happened the next year when she went through another breakup as a junior in college.
“Of course I haven’t learned my lesson. So, in my junior year, I dyed my hair black, of course, because another boy broke up with me, and locked me back in my room, my two roommates were hanging on the door, saying, ‘Don’t do it.’ I dyed my hair black and cut straight bangs,” Spiranac said.
“It looked terrible again. Of course I haven’t learned my lesson. Before I got involved with Sports Illustrated in 2018, which was the biggest shoot of my life at the time. Cut bangs two weeks before the shoot. And I think I cut them with my eyebrows raised because they were so short when I pulled them back down. It looked like ‘Dumb and Dumber’. My mother will always be positive and say what she can and I came home crying. She said, ‘What have you done?’”
Spiranac said she was inspired by a photo of supermodel Hailey Bieber at the time and “wanted to do bangs again.”
