Some artists get clumped into a moment in time, and others define it. It’s safe to say Billie Eilish—and her hair—will be the latter, defining an era and representing a generation of cool. From haircuts to hairstyles and, most notably, hair colors, Eilish has made her rounds. Below, Billie Eilish’s best hair moments.
These silver-coated pigtail braids are an edgy take on a classic style. There’s nothing overdone or overthought about the look, just a classically shameless expression of what works for her in the moment, that is Billie Eilish.
Headbands are a popular hair accessory, and while there are a plethora of ways to wear the trending item that take a feminine foot forward, it’s no surprise to see Eilish wearing this look in her own way, classically sporty, classically unique against what the rest of us are doing. A true trendsetter.
Icy Top Knot
The once avoided icy and ashy descriptors for lighter, blonder strands have become a highly coveted color goal. In fact, it’s become a color request all its own. And truth be told, we wouldn’t be surprised if Eilish were responsible for the shift in demand. This half-up top knot on icy blonde hair is the ultimate cool-girl style.
While teal hair color was on the rise, Eilish opted for a faded version of the vibrant hue. Even with its diluted tone, this shade of blue remains a prominent look and is especially ripe against her light blue eyes.
A Gen Z-er herself, Eilish is leading the way as a hair icon for her generation, a lilac hooded icon that is. While other celebs like Kelly Osborne, Nicole Richie, and Halsey have notably worn their lavender-colored hair with sheen and style, Eilish wears hers with a badass attitude and minimally coiffed efforts.
One of the things we love most about Eilish and her many hair colors is that she’s worn her hair color transitions as a look all their own. While slowly making her way from that coveted lilac to gunmetal gray, she sported a dusty lavender that made us all swoon.
Going gray is no longer a faux pas but a fashion statement made by choice. Leave it to Eilish to wear her undone length as yet another trending shade, with layers of chunky silver chains to match.
Smoke and Mirrors
The pop star seems to know she’s playing a game of smoke and mirrors with her hair transformations, always leaving us guessing what’s to come next. Is a new album about to release? Or is this a means to getting somewhere else in the hair color rainbow? Regardless of the meaning, she wears each look effortlessly. This smokey silver shade paired with freckled gold leaf is one of our favorite beauty pairings of hers to date.
This vibrant blue hue has made some major waves in the last few years, and as it turns out, it’s pretty easy to achieve from the comfort of your own home.
Black and Blue Streaks
Who said highlights had to be blonde? Attempting to remove certain hair colors can be tricky. Eilish let her faded turquoise serve as her highlighted streaks while breaking things up slowly with chunks of black lowlights.
Black as Night
This all-over black is one of her hair’s healthiest looks yet, so we’d be remiss not to include it as one of our favorites. Keeping up with good at-home care for colored strands is super important. Check out our list of colorist-approved products to help nourish and protect your dyed locks.
Here, Eilish wears an ode to some early ’90s inspired space buns. To get a similar stick straight and piece-y vibe to your buns, we recommend using the Remington 1″ Anti-static flat iron.
The neon green hair color is definitely her most notable look. Before it was her signature root color, this highlighter hue had a much larger wingspan.
Shaggy Tinted Roots
A shag haircut can be worn on various lengths and hair types. Eilish paired the rock and roll cut with a hair tuck between her turtleneck and ’70s printed blazer for an ultra retro throwback. Her tinted shades and colored roots give this style some extra edge and flair.
A classic ’50s inspired hairstyle can be modernized with its cut, color, and choice of style. Of course, Eilish opted for all three adjustments to give her retro beehive a bold-rooted twist with face-framing layers falling down and out for a looser, more relaxed vibe.
The Blonde Shag
After releasing her documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, Eilish announced to her fans that another change to her strands would come. “It will be the end of an era. I’m going to give you a new era.” Spoken like a true icon. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us all next
