Billie Eilish went blonde and her sweeping transformation caused quite a stir. But the young singer told ELLE that this new look had totally transformed her.
For the cover photo shoot for the June 2021 issue of British Vogue, Billie Eilish agreed to swap her black and neon green hair for a bright blonde. The ‘Happier Than Ever’ singer’s glamorous makeover made headlines at the time, and though fans were initially shocked at the transformation, the star was thrilled with the end result.
“I couldn’t go anywhere with that (green) hair because it was so obvious it was me. I wanted anonymity, ”she shared in an interview for ELLE magazine. “I went to a park with a friend, and I was like, ‘No, I can’t take my hood off!’ I was terrified of the paparazzi and those stalkers. But my friend said to me, “Don’t worry, you’re fine. Nothing is going to happen to you. ” And I took off my hood, and I felt like a new person. ”
Billie Eilish went on to note that there was no real pattern behind the blonde dye – she was just ready for a change. “It wasn’t my goal for everyone to see me differently. I’ve always had different colored hair and vibes for everything I’ve done. I wanted this album to have its own style, ”adds the 19-year-old of her second studio album.
