Award-winning country star Kelsea Ballerini does not shy away from sharing every aspect of her life on social media. While out on tour with the Jonas Brothers – the hitmaker would walk fans through detailed-oriented makeup tutorials, give them a sneak peek into her glamourous tour bus, and would even share behind-the-scene moments from secret projects. 

Therefore, when she took to TikTok late Tuesday night (Nov. 30) to show off her new hairstyle, social media users were not surprised by her bold move to exchange her blonde lushes locks for her natural color. Before making the dramatic decision, the singer received praise for her brunette hair while filming the “half of my hometown” music video back in October.

“OK, but you look so good as both blonde and brunette,” shared a fan in the comments. “OK, BUT YOU COULD DEF GO BRUNETTE,” revealed another under the reminiscent video that showcases Ballerini’s growth throughout the years.  

Following the release of the groundbreaking TikTok that displays a graceful transition from blonde to brunette – the songstress was bombarded with positive feedback. “We STAN a brunette queen!!!!!,” says a user full of excitement. While many individuals showered the singer with support, some even questioned whether or not the fresh look is a “Easter egg.”

“Literally stunning!!!!! New hair, new music? Fingers crossed!!!” says an eager follower. “New Album/ era coming???? 🧐 @Kelseaballerini.”  As of right now, it is unknown if the relatable singer is working her magic in the studio. However, the sudden change comes off the heels of her successful book launch. 

The 2021 CMT Artist of The Year recently released, Feel Your Way Through – a collection of poems that highlight everything from family, relationships, to self-love. The multi-platinum artist told Audacy’s Katie Neal that she hopes each piece sparks an inspiring or challenging conversation among family and friends. “Something that brings people together and gives people talking points on things that might have been a little taboo, or a little hard to talk about before.”

Upon release, the vulnerable project that reflects Ballerini in a nutshell – climbed to the top of the bestsellers chart, reached Top 50 overall on Amazon, and scored No. one in the poetry category. 

While “half of my hometown” featuring Kenny Chesney served as the first step to Ballerini returning back to her “roots,” fans can now learn more about the natural brunette and her unique upbringing in the heartfelt project.  

Feel Your Way Through is now on the shelves everywhere and available for purchase.
