On Monday, August 23, Billie Eilish introduced her new short haircut on Instagram, ahead of the 2021 Met Gala the singer is set to co-host.
It looks like Billie’s Happier Than Ever era has finally come to an end.
The 19 year-old-singer had been sporting her medium-length blonde hair since March 2021. She kept the look for a while, even after her album released on July 30.
What’s the name of Billie Eilish’s new haircut?
For those who are curious to learn what Billie’s new haircut is called, it’s a bob with bowl-style curved bangs look.
The singer showed off her new hair in a video shot during a car ride. She also posted another bathroom selfie with her new cut.
In a second monochrome video, the singer claims, “I love it,” talking about her hair. However, Billie’s new haircut is not a mere change of look, there’s a meaning behind it.
Meaning behind singer’s look explored
After showing off her hair, the Grammy-winning singer posted another story that featured her mom and actress, Maggie May Baird, with a very similar look.
Billie’s inspiration behind the new look was clearly her mother, who sported a similar short, blonde bob with bangs when she was younger.
The singer captioned the Instagram story: “Like my mama.”
Billie’s original hair colour is blonde, but fans know that the musician has experimented with various hues in the past.
We have seen her sport a range of colours, from blue to black and purple to the iconic neon green roots. We’re all excited to see what the singer has in store for us when she decides to change again.
Fans react to the Instagram pictures
Billie is set to co-chair the Met Gala on September 13 alongside Amanda Gorman, Naomi Osaka and Timothee Chalamet.
The singer’s fans have been dying to see her look on the biggest fashion night of the year. Her new haircut has certainly increased their anticipation by leaps and bounds.
