Kacey Musgraves has never been one to shy away from experimenting with her beauty looks. Glitter eye shadow to match a gloriously massive purple feather hat? Check. Disco brows? Check. Now, the singer has pink hair and it might be her most surprising transformation yet.
On November 23, Musgraves posted a dreamy selfie showing off her new cherry blossom waves. Paired with the caption, “don’t let me blow away,” the look is soft yet still has a bold edge to it. Her makeup is equally romantic with lightly lined eyes and a shimmery pink lip.
While the singer’s new hair looks so good that we’re convinced she could have been born with it, the hair is actually a lace frontal wig made for her new V Magazine cover. To protect Musgraves’s chocolate-brown hair from rounds of bleach, New York City hairstylist Giovanni Delgado created the pink unit, leaving bits of dark blonde at the roots for a seamless fit.
Every season or two, pink hair tends to come back around, and we can’t get enough of it. Maybe it’s because it is one of the few colors that manages to feel both edgy and dainty at the same time. It also serves as the perfect sweet spot if you’ve been considering a new dye job but red feels a little too extreme.
