After ditching the look for years, Britney Spears is back to showing off her bangs, and she's loving the new style.

Spears recently posted a picture of herself with her look. She wrote candidly on her Instagram page about how she used to have that style when she was a kid, and how it gave her a sense of protection.

Spears says the last time she wore bangs, she was in the third grade, which would put her at about 8 or 9 years old. At the time, she wanted to show off her forehead.

"Who would have thought bangs could make you look waaaaay younger ?!?! I stopped having bangs in the 3rd grade and I remember like it was yesterday .... it was such a big deal to expose my forehead …. only pretty people in the south could do that and I never felt pretty enough to pull it off," she wrote.

"All the beauty pageant girls did it but I never felt beauty pageants were my thing … I had bad teeth and felt like an ugly duckling."

Spears said she made the decision to go bangless around the time she flunked out at a modeling agency. Being rejected on physical appearance while in the third grade must have been traumatizing for her.

"I met with a modeling agency but I wasn’t pretty enough so I went home and said, 'maybe I can be like the older girls and show my forehead' !!!! I did and it looked sooooo bad but I thought I was gorgeous 🤣 !!!!"

"I think I knew it didn’t look good but I did it because I thought it made me cool .... and I’ve pretty much had it like that ever since !!!! People choose different ways to protect themselves …. when I pull my bangs in front of my head I feel like I’m protected ... almost like I’m in 3rd grade again ⭐️💖🌸 !!!"

Spears is definitely coming out more with regards to her feelings.

In November, 2019, Spears talked about the self-esteem issues she's had, and says doing yoga has helped center her more and make herself "become stronger."

"Body language is everything! The way you speak to yourself and carry yourself can effect [sic] your mood …. I have self esteem problems so I slouch," she told People.

@unicornfan2654 told Spears on social media: "I think this is something we can all relate to, Freedom of expression makes us who we are, Much love to you @britneyspears."
