Ellie Goulding stepped onto the 2015 MTV EMAs red carpet with a bold new hair color that was impossible to miss. The singer’s usual pale blonde hair was a much brighter yellow shade that we’re on the fence about.
Ellie Goulding, 28, took a major beauty chance at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Milan when she debuted a very bright yellow hair color on October 25. The “Love Me Like You Do” singer, who was nominated for two EMA gongs and performed at the show, was giving us some serious Vitamin C vibes, and we need to know how you feel about the new look.
Ellie’s new hair came as quite a shock since just the day before, she performed at the EMAs pre-show with her usual blonde hair. Plus, Ellie took to Instagram earlier in the week to show off some new bangs, so we weren’t expecting any other hair switch-ups so soon.
Ellie kept her new fringe combed to the side and styled her yellow locks into a super straight and sleek look with lots of shine. If you’ve got blonde hair, too, and you want to try out Ellie’s shade, you can use Manic Panic High Voltage Classic Cream in Sunshine, which is a bright yellow shade that washes out after several weeks.

Perhaps so as not to compete with the highlighter hue, Ellie left the rest of her beauty look practically makeup-free with simple glossy lips and black mascara. While we’re always game for a rainbow hair look, we love Ellie’s platinum blonde shade and rock ‘n’ roll textured lob so we’re really hoping this was just a temporary style for the EMAs.
What do you think of Ellie’s bright hair and sleek style?
