After posting a cryptic message on her Instagram story Tuesday night asking followers to “guess what color,” musician Billie Eilish has revealed a new hair color. The “Therefore I Am” singer took to Instagram to reveal that she’s ditched her iconic neon green roots and is now bleach blonde. The singer’s caption, which seems to be a play on St. Patrick’s Day, simply reads, “pinch me.”
Eilish’s new look has of course taken social media by storm. According to Twitter user @eilishdata, the singer’s post is now the fastest photo to reach 1 million likes on Instagram.
While her new look is causing a stir, the change didn’t come as a surprise. Eilish revealed back in December that she would be dyeing her hair after her documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, came out to mark the beginning of a new era. And boy did she deliver!
Fans on social media are going crazy for Eilish’s new locks, with one Twitter user praising the Grammy winner for “creating” blonde hair:
