Billie Eilish is entering a new hair era and we’re loving it. After a long time sporting her trademark green and black locks, the Ocean Eyes singer has shocked fans by going platinum blonde.

The style shift was revealed on Eilish’s Instagram as she posted a video of her latest quirky hairstyle with the caption: ‘did you guess correctly?’ Eilish isn’t in frame as the video starts, but when she does turn up a few seconds later, she's pushing her hair back to show off her fresh look. She then completes the Barbie-blonde hair debut with a Pamela Anderson-worthy head toss. 

There’s no news about what prompted the sudden switch up yet, but Eilish did hint that there was something new on the way. She played coy at the Grammys 2021 this past weekend when red carpet interviewers asked the musician if she’d be changing up her signature look soon.

And prior to the Instagram reveal, she had teased on Instagram live back in December that she would be debuting a new ‘do after the release of her Apple documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry. She said: ‘It will be the end of an era. I’m gonna give you a new era.‘ On Tuesday, the singer-songwriter also posted an Instagram Story of a white wall with the caption: ‘Can you guess what color?’

Of all the celebrities we expected to jump on the bleach-blonde bandwagon, Eilish was not one of them. Along with her unexpected change in color, the 19-year-old is also sporting one of our favorite 90s beauty trends, the blowout bang.

As if all of this change wasn't enough, she then shared a second snap, this time posed against a wall where she has parting bangs, which she clearly loves as she  wrote: ‘pinch me.’

Fans are understandably excited about the new look as one user commented: ‘Billie + blonde = Marilyn Monroe’. Others couldn't contain their feelings, with one writing: ‘AN ACTUAL BOMBSHELL WTFF😍😍😍’

Eilish’s drastic hair transformation comes after she reacted to a fan who doubted her commitment to her two-toned hair. She spoke out after the criticism saying: ‘It's called not being depressed anymore pls just be happy for me... I've had the same hair color since I was 13 & and that’s on mental stability and growth leave me alone.’ 

Well, we for one are very happy for her and her new ‘do!
