Sarah Michelle Gellar Hilariously Warns Daughter Against Bangs With THIS Buffy Throwback!

Sarah Michelle Gellar Hilariously Warns Daughter Against Bangs With A Buffy The Vampire Slayer Throwback!

Sarah Michelle Gellar DEFINITELY has her daughter’s best interest at heart — and at forehead!

When you’re a parent, it’s your duty to protect your child from the dangers of the world… You know — violence, exploitation, bullying — and in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum’s case: BANGS!

The 45-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday to post a couple pics from her iconic TV role. But not to celebrate! No, this was a sterling warning! See, these are both stills from one particular episode — Season 3’s Amends. In that one episode, and in that ep only, she had wispy, short bangs. The reason for the careful selection of pics? Her 13-year-old daughter, Charlotte Grace Prinze. The momma of two wisely captioned the post:

“Every time my daughter asks for bangs, I show her this picture of me. When she keeps asking, I show her the second. #themoreyouknow

See the photos in question (below):


We’ve likely all been there at least once — whether it came from a botched salon visit, or from our own overconfidence in our hair cutting abilities — but a bad haircut is TRAUMATIC, and SMG knows that better than most. It may have only been one episode, but it’s totally canon. There’s no erasing it. LOLz!

Friends quickly jumped in the comments with varying takes on the 90s hairstyle, with WWE’s Lexi Cabrera hilariously writing:

“Haha I love this — ‘man My bangs were so awesome!’ .. said no one ever … I have similar pics like this I’ll have to show my future daughter”

Sarah’s longtime friend and Cruel Intentions kissing partner Selma Blair also chimed in, but actually complimented the ‘do: 

“Holy fire !! I think cute on you. Actually. In a North Dakota kind of rustic cute way?”

Alright, that’s damning with faint praise if ever we saw it! Ha!

The vampire slayer’s onscreen little sis, Michelle Trachtenberg, even wrote in a reference to the show, jokingly recalling:

“So you saved me from the hellmouth AND bangs! @sarahmgellar”

All in a day’s work for the proud momma! What do you think, Perezcious readers? Should she let little Charlotte get bangs? Will the pics stop her? Or is this a touching-a-hot-stove type situation where she just has to learn for herself??

(Might we suggest a compromise of curtain bangs? They’re totally in!)

Let us know your thoughts on Buffy’s heroic sacrifice to save her daughter in the comments down below!
