Kim Kardashian's bangin' new hair: Is it for real?

kim-kardashian-bangs-gi.jpgAfter tweeting that she wanted to rock a new hairstyle to ring in 2012, Kim Kardashian showed up to host TAO Las Vegas' New Year's Eve party sporting a heavy fringe framing her face.

The newly-single reality star wrote in a series of tweets that she was looking forward to a "more simple" new year and added that anyone "can start fresh and set goals any day of the year."

But we're not convinced Kim actually committed to the new look. We're thinking she probably opted for a no-strings-attached clip in hairpiece (a la Sandra Bullock's 2011 Golden Globes look), which would give her the ability to play with the look without actually chopping any locks.

What do you think -- do you like Kim better with or without bangs?
