Halsey shares photos showing what her real hair looks like after a year of wearing wigs
Some musical artists like Eminem are famously reclusive, shunning social media and popping up once every three years to drop an album. However, 23-year-old singer Halsey has been an open book. When you see her in concert and in music videos she's usually glammed up, so fans were thrilled to see her post a make-up free selfie on Instagram. The chart-topping songstress looked stunning, Meghan Markle-like spray of freckles.
Halsey - whose name is an anagram of her real name, Ashley, plus a reference to a New York subway stop - has also been candid about her relationships. In an Instagram story, she announced her break-up with rapper G-Eazy: "G-Eazy and I are taking some time apart. I'm eager to continue the upcoming passage of time and dedicating myself to my art and my career, and the duration of my tour. I wish him the best. Thanks for respecting our privacy at this time."
But it gets deeper than make-up free-selfies and relationship statuses. Halsey has publicly discussed her struggles with bipolar disorder, her past as a victim of sexual abuse, and her decision to freeze eggs. That might seem unusual, since she's only 23 years old. However, Halsey suffers from endometriosis, a painful condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can lead to fertility problems, which Halsey experienced first hand.
"I was on tour, and I found out I was pregnant," Halsey explained. "And before I could really figure out what that meant to me and what that meant for my future, for my career, for my life, for my relationship, the next thing I knew I was on stage miscarrying in the middle of my concert."
Yes, we know a lot about this singer, what about her natural hair? For over a year, she kept it hidden under wigs and extensions every color of the rainbow - blond, blue, lavender, long black braids. But oday she surprised fans by revealing her natural hair on social media: a cute afro, giving off major 70's vibes. The caption reads "new growth, new growth; all these fades I outgrew."
Halsey fans loved the reveal. One Twitter user wrote, "LIVING for your natural hair." To which she replied, "Worked v hard for this hahaha thank you."
Another Twitter user asked how hard it's been to grow her hair out. Halsey replied, "That’s why I’ve been wearing wigs! So my hair can grow underneath them!"
Of course, there were some Twitter trolls that criticized Halsey's natural hair, claiming it looks like a wig. To which Halsey responded, "i can’t believe I spent a whole damn year growing out my curls under those wigs for y’all to say my natural hair looks like a wig... some fucked up shit lmao."
Congratulations - now you know pretty much everything about Halsey. If you ever appear on Jeopardy, and "Halsey" is a category, you will ace every question.
