Usher’s Orange Hair Makes a Splash at Paris Fashion Week
Usher isn’t a regular dad – he’s a cool dad, with colorful hair to boot. The R&B singer stepped out at Paris Fashion Week with neon-orange hair that shone bright as he sat front row at the Wales Bonner runway show on Jan. 17. The dye job had a subtle ombré effect, with a darker red orange on top blending into a lighter creamsicle toward the nape of his neck. The switch-up came just a few days after he celebrated Mary J. Blige’s 52nd birthday in New York City with his usual dark-brown hair color.
This technically isn’t the first time Usher has dabbled in orange hair: he first debuted a similarly fiery hue in November and rotated through lighter shades bordering on blond during his Las Vegas residency in late 2022. The Grammy winner’s latest transformation has drummed up divided reactions among fans, with some likening the color to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. To that comparison, we say: take Cheetos out of the equation and just leave it at “Flamin’ Hot.”
Usher is among the many stars who’ve made big hair changes so far in 2023. Shawn Mendes embraced the “new year, new me” adage with a fresh buzz cut, Cardi B briefly experimented with a green lob, and Kaley Cuoco went brunette before attending the Golden Globes. Most recently, Dove Cameron rang in her 27th birthday by dyeing her hair cherry red.
Take a closer look at Usher’s past and present orange hair looks ahead – preferably while blasting “My Boo.”
