Billie Eilish has reflected on her blonde look

The 22-year-old star famously ditched her dark locks for a blonde style at the Met Gala in 2021, and she admitted the change came as she started to lose herself, particularly at the beginning of the pandemic.

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "I was with myself so much that I couldn’t see myself objectively anymore.

“And then I dyed my hair blond and I immediately was like, ‘Oh, I have no idea who I am.’ ”

She admitted the whirlwind of 2019 was "the best time" of her life, and she is now rediscovering herself again.

She added: "This whole process has felt like I’m coming back to the girl that I was. I’ve been grieving her.

"I’ve been looking for her in everything, and it’s almost like she got drowned by the world and the media. I don’t remember when she went away.”

The hairstyle change came as she worked on her second album 'Happier Than Ever', and Finneas - her brother and collaborator - admitted it was a confusing time period.

He said: "In a weird way, that was a little like being in a tornado cellar, reading a cute little story. It was a coping mechanism of an album.”

The blonde hairdo isn't the only dramatic change she's had in the past, and she underwent another secret switch before going back to brunette.

Back in January 2022, she made an Instagram post marked with the date November 22, and wrote: "I took the blonde out and went red for a week hehe" (sic)

The 'bad guy' hitmaker shared a photo of herself in the process of dyeing hair whilst wearing a black salon gown, sporting her flaming red locks.

The Grammy Award winner has admitted that her signature neon green look meant she "couldn't go anywhere" and she craved anonymity.

She told Elle: "I couldn’t go anywhere with that hair because it was so obviously me. I wanted anonymity."
