Specifically, IU addressed the recent drastic hair transformation she debuted after she had admittedly not bleached her hair in a while.

On January 11, IU shocked fans when she bleached her hair and dyed it a trendy, baby pink color, earning praise from netizens.

Less than a month later, she again shocked fans when she dyed her hair back to a darker shade, debuting light brown hair at an event for cosmetic company Estée Lauder on February 1, 2024.

IU has maintained the darker brown hair color since and explained why she dyed it so quickly.

IU shared that it had become too difficult to manage, with her having to go to the salon every few days for them to bleach her roots and mix the specific color needed. Instead of continuing with that routine, she decided to go with a more natural hair color but explained that even that was a process.

While Yoo Jae Suk had noted how natural IU’s hair looks now, she admitted that to achieve the color, it was painstakingly done by experts “one strand at a time.

It seems fans may not see IU with bleached hair again for a while!
