Though she is known for her signature blonde hair, Britney Spears has dabbled in darker shades over the years. And on Wednesday, the pop icon ditched her light locks for brand new brunette look.
This is the first time we’ve seen Spears without platinum strands in six years. She showed off her soft ash brown shade in a compilation of still photos on Instagram with the caption: “Same faces, same dress, new hair !!!!!” She also wrote that her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, inspired her to go dark.
The post has over 2.7 million views, so fans are clearly loving the new look. Those close to Spears are, too. Her boyfriend Sam Asghari commented: “Beautiful blond or black ❤️” Model and body positive activist Tess Holiday wrote, “We love a dark haired queen 💅🏻”
Her hair makeover comes amidst reports that Asghari has plans to propose to the star. In an interview that aired Wednesday on Entertainment Tonight, Asghari said that he “absolutely” sees marriage in the couple’s future. The pair have been together since 2017, after meeting on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video.
“This is something that every couple should do,” he continued. “That’s the whole point of a relationship — we are a family.” Engagement rumors first started swirling when Spears was seen wearing a diamond ring on her left hand at the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere.
Perhaps her hair transformation is a sign that Spears is ready for a fresh new start. Regardless, we love a change!
