Singer Billie Eilish, whose full name is actually Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, is a native of the United States, but her family roots lie on the "green island" of Ireland. Her middle name "Eilish" is also a modification of the Gaelic form of the first name Elisabeth.
Against the background, it seems all the more curious that Billie Eilish decided on March 17th for a blatant hairstyle transformation with new hair color. So far, the 19-year-old singer, who has already received numerous awards for her music, was known for her black hair with a bright green approach.
And green is also one of the most important colors in Ireland - which will be worn across the country and worldwide on March 17th. Because exactly on this day the so-called "Saint Patrick's Day" is celebrated, which is considered the most important Irish holiday.
While others wear the color green from head to toe on Saint Patrick's Day, Billie Eilish has said goodbye to her green hair color.
On Instagram, she surprised her fans as a freshly dyed blonde - first with a short video and later with a photo. The latter now has over 16.5 million (!) Likes and almost 300,000 comments, in which Billie Eilish's new star hairstyle is frenetically celebrated.
The positive response is not surprising either. After all, the singer with platinum blonde hair looks fantastic. They give her a more natural look, her facial features appear softer.
Also because Billie Eilish has decided on a new haircut in addition to the new hair color - and is wearing THE trend hairstyle of the hour.
The lengths of her hair are clearly graded, which gives them more volume and a nice structure. The resulting shag has been extremely popular for a long time. The trend hairstyle originated in the 70s when it was worn by icons such as Jane Fonda and Mick Jagger. The modern shag, however, is less extreme and has subtle layering instead of blatant steps. As in the case of Billie Eilish, the hair flatters the face wonderfully.
On top of that, Billie wears curtain bangs (Rihanna is one of her fans), which go perfectly with the layering of the shag and ideally pick up on the retro vibe of the trendy hairstyle.
