It's a cliche that heartbreak can lead to a drastic haircut, but this new Camila Cabello hair look proves sometimes shedding those locks along with your emotional baggage can be a pretty stylish move. 

Olivia Rodrigo's pink hair and Bella Hadid's red bob are recent 'dos that have caused a buzz on social media, but the "Señorita" songstress opted for the opposite side of the color spectrum with her new style. 



Camila Cabello hair transformation: See her new style

Rather than red or pumpkin spice strands, Cabello went for a mint-green marvel, which she debuted on Instagram. To top it all off, she accompanied the mermaidy look with a flowy top in the same shade, as well as a strong metallic eyeshadow. (Psst, you can find something similar in our list of best eye shadow palettes.) 

The comments section went haywire with virtual stamps of approval. "I got chills," one Instagram user fittingly wrote of the icy makeover. "Camila Queen," another added. Plus, we've spotted many a "ti amo" in the mix.

It kind of reminds us of Lady Gaga's 2019 Golden Globes (opens in new tab) look when she stunned with all-things periwinkle—hair, makeup and dress. 

But back to Miss Cabello, who was seemingly a fan of the glam. 

"I clean up ok," she captioned the photo, though the last is a blurry, makeup-free snap where she's pouting. Perhaps this is a nod to her recent split with Shawn Mendes, though the two are reportedly on good terms, proving that you can stay friends with an ex. (Even if it stings at times.) 

"Hey guys, we've decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever," part of their joint message read. "We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends."

Fans are anxious for whatever the singer has in store next, be it a new relationship or a new look.
