For nearly as long we’ve known Lana Del Rey, her red hair (from strawberry to auburn and everything in between) has been as much her signature as her sultry voice. Twist! She’s going back to blonde, lightening up for summer with the same bright shade that we originally met her with back in 2010.

Del Rey stepped out on Wednesday with her newly lightened locks, and on first glance, we had a hard time figuring out who she was. Iggy Azalea? Stephanie Pratt? Jennifer Lawrence circa 2012? But after close investigation, we came to the realization that the woman with cascading blonde locks was in fact Del Rey — and we’re into her new look.

in her 2014 cover story that her dark hair was helpful to her career, saying, “When I went darker with my hair, I don’t know why, but people took my music more seriously.”
And whether she’s feeling more confident in her own skin or is just down to experiment, we’re on board.
