Madonna Goes Pink: Singer Debuts Ombre Hair As She Nears All-Time Industry Record

Madonna is trying to prove that you’re never too old to go pink.

The 56-year-old singer, known for her often extreme styles, showed off a soft pink touch in her signature blonde hair.

The pink experiment is getting Madonna some headlines, with fans sounding off on the new look and celebrity news outlets sharing details.

People reported on the new hair.

“The Queen of Pop, 56, dyed her tips an ombré pink courtesy of her hairstylist Andy Lecompte. (They could also be colorful clip in extensions — it’s hard to know for real.) And, of course, her new look was well documented on Instagram.”

The report noted that Madonna’s pink hair is part of a growing trend in Hollywood. A number of other stars, including Hilary Duff, Julianne Hough, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, have all showed up with pink in their hair. Miley Cyrus took it a step further, showing off pink armpit hair.

Later reports suggested the Miley may have been photoshopping her armpit hair, but for Madonna the pink turn is real.

Many fans seemed to embrace Madonna’s decision to go pink, sharing their enthusiasm for the new hair on Twitter.

Madonna may be making headlines for her pink hair, but the singer actually has a music-related record in her sights. Her remix to the song “Ghosttown” has been climbing up the Billboard dance music charts and is headed for No. 1, which would put Madonna all alone atop the all-time Billboard charts.

In February, Billboard shared details when Madonna tied the record.

“Madonna makes Billboard chart history, as she earns her 44th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, where ‘Living for Love’ lifts 2-1. (The ranking, dated March 7, will refresh on on Thursday, Feb. 26.) With the coronation, Madonna equals George Strait, who’s logged 44 No. 1s on Hot Country Songs, for the most leaders ever by an act on a singular Billboard chart. It’s fitting history for the artists also known, respectively, and reverently, as the Queen of Pop and the King of Country.”

For Madonna, the pink hair could also be an homage to the past. The singer went pink a number of times in the 80s, including the time she famously donned a pink wig for a performance on Britain’s Top of the Pops in 1984.
