  • Billie Eilish opened up about her hair transformation during a recent interview with Highsnobiety.

  • "When I was blonde, people treated me differently," the singer said.

  • Eilish also said she feels "sexier" in masculine looks and doesn't want to be defined by one style.

Billie Eilish recently opened up about her decision to go blonde in 2021 and her overall personal style transformation.

"I feel sexier when I dress masculine. I didn't feel sexy for one second of being blonde," the 20-year-old singer told Highsnobiety. "When I was blonde, people treated me differently. People completely changed their demeanor."

Early last year, Eilish swapped her signature green roots for a platinum halo that channeled Marilyn Monroe. At the time, she said her blonde hair made her feel "more like a woman, somehow" while posing in lingerie for the cover of British Vogue.

Eilish's new look also heralded a new era of music and featured prominently on the cover of her sophomore album "Happier Than Ever." While promoting the album, she intentionally opted for silhouettes and soft colors conventionally associated with femininity.

"People saw me as this 15-year-old, a kid, who wore this kind of stuff, looked this kind of way, acted this kind of way, said this kind of way. I felt like I couldn't change. That's why I went so far to the other side," she told Highsnobiety.

"I was trying to prove, 'Hey, fuck you guys, I can do whatever I want.' Now I can look really masculine if I want, and really feminine if I want, and it's not gonna be a fucking headline," she continued. "It's not that you wear one thing, and that's your new style — you fucking keep wearing a bunch of shit."

Although Eilish declined to explain how people treated her differently as a blonde, she previously criticized fans for treating her like "different Barbies with different heads" when she dyed her hair.

"The other day, I posted a video from when I had green hair, and I saw people go, 'I miss this Billie, the green-haired Billie,'" she told Elle. "I'm still the same person."

Last December, Eilish debuted a new chocolate brown hairdo with a selfie on Instagram, captioning the post, "Miss me?"

Two months later, she went even darker with a jet-black dye job.
