The singer, 22, debuted a glossy, new auburn shade on Instagram Thursday afternoon, and it’s definitely a bold change for the star, who has had blonde strands for most of her career.
“I love my long, blonde hair, [but] for album two, [my] label wanted to do something crazy different,” Trainor told
. “So my hairstylist said, ‘We’re gonna cut it. And we’re gonna dye it.'”
She added that while the mane change was quite the difference from her signature blonde strands, the singer’s excited to embrace life as a redhead: “I cried, and now I love it. I just have to get used to it. For 14 years I was blonde. I haven’t [had dark hair] since I was three years old.”
The fiery transformation is courtesy of colorist Lorien Meillon, of Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood, who gave the singer a red shade that gradually fades to a lighter, almost-blonde hue.

Trainor recently cut her long locks into a choppy, mid-length cut and added some deeper highlights, leaving her platinum blonde behind for a dirty blonde do. But if we’re being honest, this major mane change might be our favorite to date. That red with her fair complexion? Perfection.
