Updated 05/04/20Billie Eilish has explained why she kept her blonde hair a secret for so long and shared her thoughts on her new hair colour.

During a recent Instagram Q&A, a fan asked why the singer didn’t want to share her new look sooner after it was rumoured that she had been wearing wigs and hid her new locks for around two months, including at the 2021 Grammys.

‘Cause it took six weeks to accomplish,’ she replied, alongside a photo of the hair do’ mid transformation.

‘Honestly so healthy and I wasn’t expecting that at all,’ Eilish replied. ‘It’s actually healthier than it’s been in a longggggggg time. [sic]’

Between her now signature lime green roots and jet black lengths, her never ending stream of next level acrylic nail art and her relatable ways of ending up with an accidental mullet, Billie Eilish has swiftly become the ultimate bold beauty icon.

Having previously worked every hairstyle from super long and silver, to a moody misty blue with a choppy fringe, the Grammy award-winning singer has finally ditched her famous neon root smudge that inspired a generation of reverse dip dyes for something a little simpler.

Yup, Billie Eilish has officially bleached her hair and gone 100% blonde.

After rocking her go-to black and green look on the Grammys red carpet just a few days ago (albeit tucked under a Gucci bucket hat), it seems the US songwriter has ditched it once and for all, taking to Instagram to show off her new platinum blonde look.

The candid Instagram post showed the 19-year-old with all over bleach blonde hair cut into a choppy shag. In true quirky Eilish style, the post was pithily captioned ‘pinch me’, as if the star herself couldn’t quite believe her new look.To view this content, you’ll need to update your privacy settings.Please click here to do so.

Inevitably, her 77 million Instagram followers were shocked by Eilish’s platinum new look, with A-list friend and fellow Grammy Award winner Megan Thee Stallion commenting, ‘😍😍😍😍😍 ‘, while Yara Shahidi, Skai Jackson and Jameela Jamil also showed their love for the new blonde.

The musician swiftly took to her Instagram stories to reveal her new look, posting a series of selfies with the words, ‘BYE GREEEEEN [sic]’.

Despite sporting her trademark black and green look for the Grammy awards just days ago, it turns out the ‘No Time To Die’ singer was actually wearing a wig whilst her blonde hair was in progress.

The woman behind Eilish’s blonde transformation, colourist Lissa Renn, revealed on Instagram that the dyeing process from start to finish actually took six weeks, hence the wig wearing at this week’s Grammys.To view this content, you’ll need to update your privacy settings.Please click here to do so.

In a now-deleted post Renn went into detail about the strenuous process of transforming Eilish’s black hair to icey blonde:

‘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 🔥’

Could this be the start of a whole new aesthetic era for Billie Eilish? Watch this space.
