With their first-ever Coachella appearance just weeks away, Blackpink is dropping new music on April 5 to add to their setlist. Along with sharing the title of their upcoming single, "Kill This Love," the members of the K-pop group have also been showing off new hairstyles on social media. On Sunday night, the first teaser was released: a solo photo of Lisa with a gorgeous gray-toned lob and her signature blunt bangs. The look recalls the one she had in the "Whistle" music video.
Blond or fair hair is a hair color characterized by low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. The resultant visible hue depends on various factors, but always has some yellowish color. The color can be from the very pale blond caused by a patchy, scarce distribution of pigment to reddish "strawberry" blond or golden-brownish "sandy" blond colors the latter with more eumelanin. Because hair color tends to darken with age, natural blond hair is generally rare in adulthood. Naturally-occurring blond hair is primarily found in populations of northern European descent and is believed to have evolved to enable more efficient synthesis of vitamin D , due to northern Europe's lower levels of sunlight.
