Billie Eilish has revealed that she decided to dye her hair blonde after seeing a photo of herself that a fan had edited.
Yep, we already knew that Eilish’s fans are some of the most engaged in the world, but this just proves exactly how much power they have.
Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Eilish was asked about her new look, which saw her switch things up from her signature green and black hair.
“I’ve been wanting it blonde for a while, then I saw a fan edit when I had green hair. It was me with whatever hair colour I had, and they just edited blonde hair on me and I was like: ‘Ah, it’s so sick, I want it,” she said.
Eilish continued on to add that she was initially cautious about dying her hair blonde because it was previously in “bad condition”.
“I thought I would burn it all off if I tried, but I did it.”
Meanwhile, she also recently said that she pulled a fast one on us all by hiding her new hair undie a Billie Eilish Halloween wig.
In an interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, she explained that she was “was wearing a Billie Eilish wig” during her previous appearance on the show back in February as she was still in the process of dyeing her hair from black to blonde.
“From black to blonde [is a] big thing… to do it right and to do it where you’re not murdering your hair and keeping it healthy, I did the first process and then waited two weeks so it could heal and then again, and then waited two weeks,” she said.
She continued: “I knew that it would have these processing periods where it would look insane, and I didn’t want to look insane. But I needed something quick, so I literally ordered a Billie Eilish Halloween costume wig on Amazon.”
“It was awful. It was the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen,” she said. “[But] I just looked f—king crazy underneath there and I needed to look not crazy.”
