There's no doubt that Taylor Swift is country music's sweetheart, but we love it when she adds a bit of edge to her darling style.

And boy, did she rev things up!

The 20-year-old star debuted new blunt bangs and straighter locks at the 2010 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California. Swift paired her sleek strands with a studded dress, heavily lined lids, and soft pink lipstick.

We're loving the "Back to December" singer's more grown up look and wouldn't mind if she didn't return to side-swept waves and updos for a while.

What do you think about Swift's new bangs and straight hairstyle? Do you prefer her with curly hair?
