BTS Just Debuted A Completely New Look — & Twitter Is Loving It

When BTS, a wildly popular K-pop band, took to the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas this summer, it sent the internet buzzing. With hair so vibrant and shiny you'd swear it was ripped from Kylie Jenner's wig room, the seven-man group officially dominated the music scene — stateside and abroad. And since the internet-famous band is set to perform at this weekend's American Music Awards, we figured it's time to take a look back at their meteoritic rise to fame.
Besides their chart-topping music, the band is known for one other thing: their beauty looks. (They even have their own skin-care collection.) Every time they hit the red carpet, post to Twitter, or accept a major award, members Jungkook, Jimin, V, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, and RM (formerly "Rap Monster") appear as though they've undergone a major transformation overnight. Seriously, they dye their hair more often than Halsey and Katy Perry combined. For example, in May the entire group rocked varying shades of brunette. Now, they could give Frenchy from Grease a run for her money.

Back in 2014, BTS attended the Gaon Chart Music Awards in South Korea. Four out of the seven donned a shade of rusty red, while RM rocked his usual platinum blond.

By that March, not too much had changed except the fact that their layered cuts looked eerily familiar to another famous pop star's.

Pastel perfection, don't you think? It was only two years ago that members of BTS started experimenting with candy-colored strands.

Last winter, the boy band rolled up to the red carpet, but this time Suga pulled off a hair color so black, it was practically blue and RM officially made holographic hair a thing.

After taking home one of the biggest award upsets of the night, the group showed off their new hair on the red carpet. (We love how their hair color fades from dark to light, like ombré, when they stand in this order. Coincidence? We think not.)

Before their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, J-Hope tweeted a video of his new fiery red hair and RM went full gray (according to Allure, it's his favorite).

Before they hit the stage to perform their hit song "DNA" at the American Music Awards, the red carpet found the band with fresh corresponding hair colors.

After years of sporting multi-colored hairstyles, BTS just appeared in a recent LG ad rocking the same black hair color — and naturally, the group's A.R.M.Y. is losing their minds on Twitter. #BTSBlackHairParty is already trending, so it seems like the dye job is a hit.
