Billie Eilish: ‘When I was blonde I didn’t feel sexy’

In her latest interview, the 'Lovely' and 'Bad guy' singer launches her new perfume and talks about the dark sides of being a bombshell star.

Billie Eilish reveals her experience with the platinum hue, dispelling the myth that blondes have more fun. Confirming her status as a Gen Z icon with off-beat appeal.

Billie Eilish launches new perfume in dark hue

Having become a manga celebrity with dark hair and neon green roots, in 2021 the singer of 'Lovely' and 'Bad Guy' surprised everyone by suddenly changing her beauty look with a bombshell hue. But that phase is now just a memory, as she explains in an interview with High Snobiety magazine to present her new perfume Eilish No. 2 launched in mid-November.

Raven hair + liquid hair effect

In the photo shoot accompanying the interview, the singer, who will turn 21 in a few days, shows off the raven black hair colour she has adopted for several weeks now.

But whereas in the look she sported at the Lacma Gala she had long fringes and a voluminised wave styling, she is now in a flat version with a parting in the middle. A graphic look in the style of Morticia, combined with soapy makeup with just the highlight of black mascara.

No nostalgia for blondiness

The new hair look is the result of a beauty evolution that stems from her fully Gen Z identity. That of a self-conscious young woman with a taste for transformation and outside the box in every sense.

As Billlie Eilish herself explains when talking about self-perception and external image: 'I only feel glamorous when I wear a masculine style. And when I was blond, I never felt sexy, not even for a second'.
