Pop princess Britney Spears is back to brunette, and her fans aren't quite sure how they feel about it. The superstar, who is known for her long, blond locks, decided to change things up a bit and go for a darker look, crediting her younger sister with the hair inspiration.
Spears posted a video of herself and her new hair color on Instagram as she makes faces at the camera, writing "Same faces, same dress, new hair !!!!! Yes, my sister inspired me to go dark !!!!!!!"
Britney's younger sister Jamie Lynn recently had her own hair transformation earlier in the summer when she took her own light blonde hair back to a lighter shade of brown. Clearly Britney was a fan and decided to make a hair change herself.
While many of Britney's fans loved her new look, others couldn't help but remember the last time she had darker hair. Britney was last a brunette in 2013 and many think that changing her hair is a sign of turmoil in the pop star's personal life.
It was just recently reported that Britney's son with Kevin Federline, Sean Preston, allegedly had an "altercation" with her father, Jamie Spears. As a result, Federline filed to officially amend the couple's custody agreement and now has custody of both Sean and his brother Jayden James 70% of the time, with Britney retaining 30% custody. Fans are worried that this may be part of a bigger issue with Britney, and that the change in hair color could be a sign of personal trouble.
Fans couldn't help but comment on Brit's new look, and while many were fans of her new darker tresses, many weren't.
"*sigh* ... No.. just no, hon," wrote one commenter. "Horrible," wrote another, while another added, " I’m predicting a breakdown."
Even though many criticized her new look and her heavy eye makeup, there were lots of people who loved the darker hair. Spears' boyfriend, Sam Asghari, was ever supportive writing, "Beautiful blond or black."
Although Spears has had some trouble on the home front with her father and son, it looks like her relationship with Asghari is moving along quite nicely. In fact, the model revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he may be looking to put a ring on it very soon!
“Absolutely,” Asghari said when asked if marriage may be in the couple's future. “This is something that every couple should do. That's the whole point of a relationship -- we are a family.” He then went on to add that the couple definitely wouldn't keep it a secret if they do get engaged. “Trust me, if we do ever get married, everybody’s going to know,” he added. “Actually, you might be the first one to know -- you never know!”
