Billie Eilish’s Technicolor Hair Evolution Deserves Its Own Award

Billie Eilish is just 18, but in her short time in the music industry she’s already experienced chart-topping stardom. From being named Apple Music’s Global Artist of the Year to her six nominations for the 2020 Grammys, the “Bad Guy” singer has quickly become a household name.

But Eilish’s career accolades aren’t the only things she’s known for. Whether she’s experimenting with different shades of blue or surprising fans with a make-under, her ever-changing hair has earned its own version of fame.

While we can’t predict tonight’s look — or if she’ll take home her first Grammy Award — we can walk you through her vibrant hair evolution. Check it out, ahead.

Eilish stepped out with a mullet-like shag soon after the last image was snapped, but later explained that it was the result of her hair being burnt off after a dye job gone wrong, not a purposeful cut.

For the music video for her song “Xanny,” the Grammy-nominated artist shocked fans with a chestnut brown lob that dramatically differed from the two-tone hair they’re used to seeing.
