Dua Lipa has been forced to get a fringe because her frequent bleaching has damaged her hair.
The Physical hitmaker debuted her new look in a series of photos and videos on her Instagram Stories and revealed that her cropped blonde fringe wasn’t her choice.
“PSA (public service announcement): This is not a haircut, it’s bleached breakages but I’m running with it,” the 24-year-old explained, noting that she had bleached her hair so much, it started to break off.
Dua was later spotted out and about in New York City, hiding her bangs from paparazzi, and posted snaps from the incident on Instagram, showing her putting her quilted Chanel bag in front of her face as she crossed the street.
“Please don’t talk to me while mercury is in retrograde,” she jokingly captioned the snaps.
The New Rules singer, who has rocked her two-tone blonde and black hairstyle since October last year, also teased her new album as she debuted her new look. “A new era! Thank you for your patience. See you soon #DL2,” Dua wrote at the time.
Her hairstylist Nicola Clarke was the mastermind behind the unique hair colour, and told W magazine last year that it is “a trend that can be made as extreme or subtle as you want and still have impact.”
The Grammy-winning singer is currently gearing up for the release of her new album Future Nostalgia, which drops 3 April, and the star will kick off her European tour on 26 April in Madrid, Spain.
