Grimes Is Officially Our New Hair Color Icon

Amanda Montell

It's hard to put your finger on 28-year-old experimental musician Grimes. Having been described as the "alien love-child of Aphex Twin and ABBA," as well as "the ultimate beauty chameleon," the hyper-creative Canadian transfixes both the music and beauty worlds for the same reason: her disregard for the rules.

Four albums and a host of different looks after she first appeared on our electro-pop playlists in 2010, Grimes appears on Teen Vogue's April 2016 cover. Flaunting sherbert-colored hair and a fresh face, Grimes says her look is, as always, "inherently political" and at the same time just "fun." 

Fun is certainly one of the first words that comes to mind when we think of Grimes's beauty look, her hair color in particular. Having rocked everything from playful pink to scuzzy green and black, her statement-making hues somehow always seem natural, if not biological. 

That effortless edge is giving us major inspo these days, especially with festival season fast approaching.
