Taylor Swift Goes Brunette, and the Fans Love It

Updated 09/23/16

Last night Taylor Swift debuted her newest music video, “Wildest Dreams,” for the MTV VMAs viewers. And in true Swift form, the video featured a few surprises. Unlike the star-studded scenes of “Bad Blood,” however, it wasn’t the ass-kicking supermodels who stole the show, but rather Swift’s hair. For the video, the pop star ditched her signature golden locks in favor of a darker, almost jet-black bob; but don’t worry—the red lips remained intact. As you can imagine, this left her die-hard fans freaking out, but not in the way you may have thought.

Take a scroll through the 35,000+ comments and you’ll see T.Swift supporters gushing over her deep brunette hair color. We have to admit that we don’t hate seeing the darker side of Taylor either. See for yourself in the video below.


For those of you hanging onto your Taylor Swift–blond tresses, don’t forget to wash your hair with a toning shampoo like Oribe’s Bright Blonde Shampoo for Beautiful Color ($44).
