Billie Eilish has entered a new hair era! After spending much of 2021 being platinum blonde while promoting her album Happier Than Ever, the Grammy winner just debuted fresh new brunette hair on Instagram, which she captioned, “Miss me?”
Billie initially dyed her hair blonde back in March and then debuted bangs a few months later. She told Ellen that the decision to go blonde actually came after she saw a fan edit: “It was me with whatever hair color I had, and they just edited blonde hair on me, and I was like, ‘It’s so sick, I want it.’”
But Billie also revealed to Elle magazine that one of the reasons she went blonde was because too many people recognized her signature green hair.
“I couldn’t go anywhere with that hair because it was so obviously me. I wanted anonymity,” she said, adding that she felt completely free when she changed her look. “I went to a park with a friend, and I was like, ‘No, I can’t take off my hood!’ I was terrified of the paparazzi and these stalkers I’ve had. But my friend was like, ‘Don’t worry: You’re okay. Nothing’s gonna happen.’ And I took my hood off, and I felt like a new person.”
“I had no goal of ‘this is going to make everybody think differently of me.’ I’ve had different-colored hair and vibes for everything I’ve ever done. I wanted this album to have its own thing,” she continued. “The other day, I posted a video from when I had green hair, and I saw people go, ‘I miss this Billie, the green-haired Billie.’ I’m still the same person. I’m not just different Barbies with different heads.”
Kay, BRB while I go get some boxed dye to recreate this look at home. Pray for me.
