Ameriie Goes Blonde: ‘I Just Went for It!’

Not only did Ameriie throw an extra “i” in her name to switch things up a bit, but the “1 Thing” singer took her image overhaul one step further. She recently debuted her new look at a Grey Goose event in Dallas, Texas, dying her luscious dark locks platinum blonde.

“I’ve always wanted to go platinum blonde, and I figured I’d finally just do it,” Ameriie exclusively tells of her new ’do. “One of the things that inspired me are photos I’ve seen of children in the Solomon Islands. They are very brown-skinned, and a lot of them grow white-blonde hair naturally. The contrast in dark skin tone and extremely light hair is really beautiful to me. So I just went for it!”

The Grammy nominee is currently in the studio recording Cymatika Vol. 1, the follow-up to last year’s In Love & War, which will showcase a more “international, worldly” sound.
