It looks like Britney Spears has grown bored of her signature blonde hair color. On Thursday, she took to social media to debut a drastic new look: purple hair.
The popstar showed off her transformation in an Instagram video, during which you can see her wavy strands have been dyed a violet hue. “Here’s me with purple hair,” she captioned the clip, which is set to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and shows Spears dancing in black mini dress.
She goes on to explain that her nail technician suggested the color change. The reason? Apparently, Spears was bored. “Very bored so my nail girl said do it !!!! Girl .. I did it but not sure I like it but hey,” she wrote.
But as reported by The Blast, for reasons unknown, Spears seemingly deleted the video just 30 minutes after posting it.
However, it’s back — and although Spears may not be the biggest fan of her new look, her fans approve. The comment section of her post is flooded with praise for her new purple hue, and the video has been liked by over half a million people
” Love the purple hair,” wrote one follower. “It’s f***ing fantastic. Colour of Royalty,” added another.
The makeover comes just two months after the 13-year conservatorship that controlled her estate and personal affairs was terminated. Spears described it as the “best day ever, and she has since been celebrating her freedom in ways big and small, including traveling with her fiance, Sam Asghari.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Spears has dyed her hair a shade other than platinum blonde. She’s played around with colors like pastel pink, rose gold, and even a deeper shade of purple in the past, but she has always gone back to her signature look.
Who knows how long this violet hue will last, or even if she’s still sporting it at all. Spears hasn’t posted a new photo of herself since uploading the video. Whatever the case, we’re glad to see the Princess of Pop is having fun and trying new things.
