Halsey's New Pixie Cut Will Give You Serious Marilyn Monroe Vibes

New Year's Eve calls for transformations, and some take it more seriously than others. It's a night where you can wrap yourself up in velvet, transform yourself with sequins, get extra with cut-creases and reinvent yourself with a bold lip and a smokey eye. Basically, you can transform yourself into a daring, adventurous version of yourself, and it doesn't all disappear once midnight strikes. This is something Halsey seems to get, which isn't surprising seeing how the singer is a hair chameleon. From long teal locks to cotton candy pink undercuts, she changes her 'do as often as people change socks. But Halsey's pixie cut on New Year's Eve was something special, and a fun tangent from her usual edgy style. Rather than sporting something modern and slightly punk, Halsey went retro with a Marilyn Monroe inspired curly pixie.

It was her first look of 2018, and an amazing way to start off the new year. In an Instagram post, she shared a video of her NYE look with the caption "on my marilyn," giving fans and followers a sneak peak at the entire ensemble. Starting off at her feet, we were treated to rhinestone studded, teetering stilettos, and the camera then panned up to her slinky black dress. The dress was a total stunner, where it had an open back and a side slit that was held together by delicate strings that zig-zagged down the side.

But the real magic happened when you saw her makeup and hair. Sporting the iconic, Old Hollywood red lips, her hair was waved into a curly bleach-blonde pixie, cinching those Marilyn Monroe vibes. The outfit might have been too modern for the 1950's star, but I'm sure she would appreciate the overall "bombshell" quality of the whole aesthetic.

The bleached curls offset all the diamonds and sequins perfectly. To see what a transformation this new style is, check out Halsey's hair history below.

A Blonde Grown-Out Pixie

iamhalsey on Instagram

Most recently she has been sporting a bleached, grown-out pixie that flips out all '90s-style at the edges. It looks like she is growing out her buzz cut from earlier, which she loved to color in a series of playful and unexpected colors.

Teal Locks

While Halsey has been known to keep around her natural dark hair color from time to time, sometimes she goes rogue and colors her tresses a fun unicorn shade, like teal.

Silver Mane

When the teal gets boring, the dreamy blue can be easily swapped out for silver, shoulder-length hair. But Halsey adds in black roots for an interesting contrast - she's never one to be boring.

Purple Updates

Not one to leave her hair the same color for too long, Halsey also sported a dreamy lilac-purple shade with contrasting black roots. It's a fun take on the pastel hair trend, especially since the dark roots are so stark and jarring next to the cotton candy hair color.

Light Pink Pixie

Her pixie cut wasn't always blonde; she also colored it a pastel pink to give it some personality. Seeing how her tresses are so short and pixies grow so quickly, dying it a series of different colors wouldn't damage her hair too much since she gets it routinely shorn.

Natural Black

Then every so often Halsey goes back to a more natural shade, like a deep, rich black.

Whether she leaves her hair long and dark, or decides to channel Old Hollywood stars and goes bleach blonde and curly, Halsey looks amazing no matter what. Here's to seeing which hair trend she tries next!
