Taylor Swift Goes to the Dark Side for “Wildest Dreams” Video

Victoria Moorhouse

While we all know Taylor Swift’s signature red lipstick isn’t going anywhere, but the leader of all squads debuted a new hair color in her “Wildest Dreams” video to kick off the VMAs. Or, rather, a dark brown wig. Totally ditching her blonde lob, she opted for a killer brunette wig –to complete her retro look. And we’ve got to say, she might want to consider the switch for good.



The hair color was pretty much the biggest shock in the video though, as our girl Tay didn’t steer too far away from her signature retro vibe. She opted for gorgeous pin curls (big surprise) but styled them in two different ways. For a more formal scene, Swift wore her hair neatly curled, while the bedroom clip featured a disheveled ‘do and more importantly, a hunky Scott Eastwood. Yum.


For other scenes, her hair was pulled into tighter, textured curls that gave the look even more volume. It took us back to the days where Swift wasn’t seen without her enviable blonde ringlets. #HairGoals.

This video will no doubt be played on repeat all night long – and for the rest of our lives, and half of those repeat plays may just be of us trying to recreate those looks. Watch the video below to get up close and personal – and no judgement if you just hit pause on Scott instead.
