There are a kabillion reasons why Billie Eilish is undeniably, effortlessly, enviably cool. The music, the style, the acting chops — the list goes on for pages, and high on that list is definitely her hair. Whether she's gone blonde, jet-black, or very memorably , she's making a salon appointment-influencing statement. And it turns out she's been a hair-color icon since her first double-digits year.
Eilish posted an adorable series of videos to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, July 21, showing what a talented aerialist she was when she was a kid. In the clips, we see the teensy future superstar doing gymnastics, performing an aerial-silk drop, and bowing for a cheering crowd. (More cool points.) But as impressive as all of that is, it's almost upstaged by the fact that nearly half the length of her long, naturally blonde hair is dip-dyed a teal blue hue.
Although she doesn't call out her color, Eilish captions the first slide with, "10 year old me doing my favorite aerial routine i used to do LMAO my faaaaavorite song man" — that song being Paramore's "All I Wanted." In fact, that song is the reason she posted the videos in the first place.
In a carousel posted to her grid, Eilish also shared that fellow recently invited Eilish onstage to sing "All I Wanted" with Paramore at a fan-packed concert. In addition to photos and videos of the magical moment, the carousel includes another clip of Eilish's aerial routine. "UGHHDKSLDJSKFJKSKFUDJSKKFKDKDK dream come truEEEEEE waaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh😭😭 i love you so much hayley holy shit. wish i could tell tiny me," she wrote in the caption.
There is far too much cool-hair power on that stage for mere mortals to handle for more than a few minutes, but for those who got to witness it, the memory will last far longer than any dip-dye job.
