The world’s a little blurry right now, but we have no problem focusing on Billie Eilish’s platinum blonde hair these days.
She shocked us all when she debuted her blonde shag on Instagram in a cheeky little video days after winning Record of the Year at the 2021 Grammy Awards. And yes, she’s a total babe no matter what color hair she rocks, but we are digging her more buttery blonde that gives off total ’80s glam rocker vibes.
What really had her fans in a frenzy was the fact that she had been wearing a wig for weeks to hide her transformation. The “Therefore I Am” singer confirmed this with a TikTok where she lifted her neon green roots to reveal the blonde underneath.
Vanity Fair noted that Billie’s hairstylist Lissa Renn shared a since-deleted video detailing the process. Lisa posted, “The process is real when you’re doing it right. 6 weeks to get all the black out of her ends without damaging it, along with her following my strict haircare regime. We actually loved all the stages of lifting the color too but the end result is [fire emojis].”
We really shouldn’t be as shocked by this transformation as we were, however. During the release of her The World’s a Little Blurry documentary, Billie teased she would be ditching her signature strands on an Instagram Live. “I’m changing [my hair] after the doc comes out. It will be the end of an era. I’m going to give you a new era.”
And it looks like Billie’s not done changing up her locks just yet. Her buttery blonde strands have become icy blonde tresses as of late. She shared an Instagram selfie yesterday with the caption “leave me alone,” which debuted her lighter hair.
We’re incredibly excited to see how Billie’s blonde hair progresses throughout the year and what this new era has in store for us. In the meantime, we’ll be dreaming about lightening our locks to match Billie’s.
