When you mention Billie Eilish’s hair, it is almost synonymous with the color green, which has now become her signature look. Billie is a natural blond but has dyed her hair in different colors. The neon green and back dye on her hair has lasted the longest compared to all hair dyes she has tried. But why did Billie Eilish dye her hair green?
Instagram user Gucciganggabi recently posted a video on Instagram that she was Billie Eilish’s muse when she dyed her hair green. Gucciganggabi had green hair when she met Billie Eilish at a concert, who at the time was rocking black hair with blue hues.
According to the video, Billie stared at her the whole concert and dyed her hair neon green during the next week.

The History of Billie Eilish’s Hair Color
Billie is a natural blond but has dyed her hair several times, adding a pop of color from the natural blond. She has had 14 hair colors that make a bold statement in her looks.
Here is a jog-down memory of her hair color transformation from the first color she popped with to the end of an era when she released her new documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry.
Before all the fame, Billie kept her hair natural and undyed, rocking the world in all her true shades.
In 2017, she dyed her hair so pale it looked white. She dyed her hair platinum white during the period when her career was getting traction, and her stardom had arrived.
Ocean Eyes was a big hit in 2017 when Billie went silver. The shiny silvery grey hair strands left a metallic sheen which she maintained for two years.
In 2018, she dyed her hair a dusty lavender that gave the impression of purple and silver dye being blended into one color.
Different shades of grey seem to be her favorite hair dye color as she has mixed the grey with different colors. She rocked charcoal grey hair with black roots.
Billie dyed her hair blue, which she says she hates and is her least favorite color. She has no idea how she ended up with the blue.
Seafoam Green/ Teal
In 2018, Billie rocked seafoam green hair when she tried to get rid of her blue hair. The end product was a hue between blue and green that she rocked for a while as it almost matched her eye color.
Faded Denim Blue
Another attempt to end the blue color in her hair resulted in faded denim blue jeans that left her looking amazing. The color marked her journey into trying dark colors.
Black with Dark Blue Streaks
Another episode of her love-hate relationship with the color blue that she has spent time at the salon trying to remove made a debut. She rocked her black hair with navy blue streaks in 2019.
Neon Green and Black Hair
Billie rocked the neon green roots and black ends colored hair for the longest period compared to other colors. Pictures of Billie in green hair are probably stuck in your mind, and when you see green hair, you automatically guess it is Billie Eilish.
Her fans got tired of the color and kept demanding she change the color. She fired back at the critics stating that since she was thirteen, this was the longest she had on one hair color, all on mental stability and growth. She then requested her fans to be happy for her.
Billy kept the neon green the entire 2020 but promised her fans in December that she would change her hair color after the release of her documentary. She described that as the end of an era while introducing a new generation to her fans.
In her Xanny music video, Billie appeared as a brunette. She had on a wig that matched the color of her eyebrows.
In 2021, the Ocean Eyes singer broke the internet when she shared a photo of herself with blond hair. She was on the cover of British Vogue, where Billie Eilish expressed how happy she was in blond and that she somehow felt more like a woman.
Billie admitted to the magazine that it had taken four dying sessions to get rid of every green and black trace in her hair.
In November 2021, on an Instagram poll, Billie explained that she had been a redhead for a week when she took the blond out. She backed the statement up with a bathroom selfie where she had worn her wet red hair.
She made her debut in black hair, confirming what she had said earlier that her favorite color is black. In 2022, Billie Eilish’s hair color now is once again black.
Billie Eilish is an American pop musician and songwriter aged 20 years who made her debut in the music industry with her song Ocean Eyes in 2015.
Billie has won seven Grammy awards at nineteen, a teenager. Her songs are homemade and produced by her older brother Finneas O’Connell, her co-writer. Finneas is an artist in his own right and is popular for his song, ‘Break my Heart Again.’
