The musician, who was known for her signature bright aqua-blue hair color, decided to change things up in a big way with her new look, debuting a vibrant shade of crimson after teasing that a switch-up was in the works in late July.
According to Karol’s post on Instagram, she had to practice patience before debuting the scarlet hair to fans and followers, as the color was top secret at first. “Two weeks of being in love with seeing myself in the mirror like this and not being able to show it,” she wrote in Spanish. In the video, Karol makes viewers wait for the big reveal as she talks about the transformation, videoing the ceiling before counting down to her rojo makeover. After a quick “three, two, one,” she shows off the color. Her hair is styled in loose waves and looks super bright and shiny — just like her smile.
