Chrissy Teigen Legit Looks Like a Mermaid with Purple Hair in Latest IG Vid

Chrissy Teigen has gone through quite a few hair transformations.

In the past decade alone, we've seen the model and cookbook author in bangs, dark beachy waves, short bobs. But now, the mother of two is considering a much bolder look.

On Instagram, Teigen used the Cabelo Colorido Filter to experiment with a new hair color, and after trying out a bright lavender hue, the author announced that she'd be dyeing her hair purple when she returns from vacation. In the caption, she wrote, "Well I absolutely have to do this when I get home. I swear I’m okay! I realize this looks like I’m having a crisis lol, I just wanna start looking the way I’ve always wanted to!!"

In the comments, Teigen also clarified, "Important: If I do this, I’m not gonna go all sporty, I wanna still wear my boyfriend blazers and cami’s and skinny a** jeans and be a working ass tailored boss bitch who happens to have pink hair." *Cue mic drop.*

In the short clip, Teigen dons face jewels and runs her fingers through her straightened hair, admiring the bold new color. And in the comments, countless followers showered her with compliments, encouraging her to dye her hair. Vanessa Hudgens wrote, "Love you for saying that lol, you're gorge. Live your best life [clapping emojis]."

Teigen also tried the new color on her beachy long waves, and she legit transformed into a real-life mermaid.

In the video, as Teigen dices apples for her cinnamon rolls, we see that her waves are bright violet—and they definitely suit her.

Recently, the 35-year-old model has been sporting wavy long hair with highlights, shortly after debuting her Rachel Green-inspired cut early in December. As much as we loved that look, however, we get the feeling that her violet hair will easily become a fan favorite.
