We all know by now that Billie Eilish is the Queen of hair transformations. We’ve had neon green roots, blocky fringes, platinum blonde and, most recently, a super wispy fringe with choppy layers. And yes, she completely pulls off each and every one of these looks.

Now, Billie has switched it up once again – and her fans (and us) are obsessed with her new look.

The singer first stopped us in our tracks when she hinted at her new look on Instagram Stories. She posted a suuuper close-up shot of her eyes, with her wispy fringe peeking in through the top of the picture – except, her fringe was no longer platinum blonde. Instead, it was a deep shade of brown and she teased fans, writing: “guess what”.

Um, WHAT EXACTLY HAS HAPPENED HERE???

Less than an hour later, Billie took to her Instagram feed to post a selfie and gave us the full reveal. The Ocean Eyes singer has gone back to being a brunette and honestly? What. A. Look.

This rich shade of brown has been a trend for a while now, with shades like "chocolate brown" and "mocha brown" taking centre stage after being seen on celebs like Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber.

Billie’s new look went down a storm with, well, everybody. It has quickly gathered more than nine million likes and over 180,000 comments.

Among them was Olivia Rodrigo, who commented: “omg”.

Actor Claudia Selewski, who is dating Billie’s brother Finneas, commented: “Insane”. While singer Anne Marie wrote: “Yesssssssssssss”.

Of course, some people were sad to see the end of Billie’s blonde phase. One fan wrote: “THE BLONDE ERA IS OVER ???

While another fan made a good point, commenting: “BILLIE ISTG IF IT’S A WIG”.

Of course, if it was a wig, it wouldn’t be the first time Billie has tricked us. After revealing her sandy blonde hair back in March, Billie later posted a TikTok that showed her green mullet look was actually a wig and told fans she had been secretly blonde for two whole months before revealing it.

Hmmm. I mean, her hair looks like it has actually been dyed in these pictures so we’re going to go with saying this is the real deal…
