And the password is … curly bangs! Keke Palmer absolutely nailed the curly bangs-to-glasses ratio with her latest Password host glam.

Palmer, who recently won an Emmy Award for her work on the game show, looked every bit the iconic host in voluminous spiral curls that just brushed her shoulders, plus curly bangs to match. It's not a full fringe, but rather a few little ringlets across her forehead, hitting at the absolute perfect spot right atop her embellished, '50s-style red cat-eye glasses. (Get an up-close peek at the look here. The glasses in question are from Zenni; Palmer is a face of the brand.) Throughout the show, the curls moved around a bit, sometimes dusting her forehead and occasionally migrating to the side for a curly curtain bang effect. The glasses are adorable, the curls are bouncy, and the bangs pull it all together in the most perfect way.

Palmer's head-to-toe look was giving Fran Fine from The Nanny, what with the sheer feathered top and houndstooth miniskirt cinched with a big red belt — a power shade to echo the hue of her glasses and her deep red ombré lip. If you zoom in, you'll see that not only is she wearing a houndstooth skirt, she's also wearing the black and white pattern on her nails! Every single detail is on point.

There's never a bad time for a curly bangs moment, as evidenced by Palmer and some of her celebrity peers. Megan Thee Stallion is a fan, and Zendaya has worn the look in the past too, as has Selena Gomez. Palmer has also dabbled in other bang styles, like heavy, side-swept mid-aughts fringe and a super-long wispy set that basically touched her eyelashes. Wait … do I want bangs now?
