We all know Ciara is no stranger to experimenting with her hair color, length, and style — whether that be with blunt bangs, a bright pink color, or a gorgeous afro — but we’ve never seen her with a look quite like this before. On May 30, the singer revealed new, waist-length hair in a vibrant copper hue on her Instagram. And let us tell you, it is a sight to behold.
Her caption from the post pretty much says it all: “Pelirroja.” (That’s Spanish for redhead if you didn’t know.) As she poses with her hands on her waist, one leg bent, and her chin proudly upturned, Ciara’s tousled, side-parted waves cascade down one side, all the way down to just past her waist. The style, by the way, was achieved by hairstylist César DeLeön Ramîrez (though it’s unclear for now who is responsible for the color itself).
Something about this specific shade of red combined with that confident, sultry pose is just screaming Jessica Rabbit to us. Come on, look us in the eye and tell us she wouldn’t make a perfect live-action cast for that character if a reboot of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? was ever to happen. It’s also giving a little bit of Cady Heron from Mean Girls — you know, before the part where she really becomes part of The Plastics.
But seriously, every iconic redhead in pop culture must be quaking right now. Princess Ariel? MJ Waston from the Spider-Man comics? Daphne from Scooby-Doo? They’ve all been real quiet since Ciara posted this photo…
