Whenever I think of Jessie J, I immediately picture her inky jet-black hair — so imagine my shock and surprise when the pop singer revealed a brand-new hair colour and haircut all at once. She chopped off her black hair into a chin-grazing auburn bob.
She first revealed her drastic haircut and colour transformation in an Instagram video posted on September 20. In the video, Jessie J is seated in a chair as her black hair falls towards her chest in loose waves. Her hairstylist Alisha Dobson flips a cape over the pop star to reveal her new chin-grazing ginger hair at the end.
In a second video, which she posted the following day, she showed off her curled bob while sharing some updates on her life as a new mum. In the midst of her updates, she says, “I have no idea who I am with this hair.” She also mentions how she just started drinking coffee and shows a clear tumbler full of it — we’re guessing it’s a PSL because it almost matches the colour of her hair to a tee.
This isn’t the first time that the singer has opted for a drastic change. Back in 2013, she shaved her head on live TV for charity. Not too long after, she bleached her buzz cut — fans might remember her “Wild” music video in which she struts with her shaved head and back to the camera the moment the video begins.
Though Jessie J isn’t new to the bob life or to different hair colours, it has been a while since we’ve seen her without that signature jet-black hair. She might still be getting used to the new colour and cut, but what better time to experiment with auburn hair than in the autumn?
