Many believed IU suited her new hairstyle and hoped to see more of it as her black beanie hid parts of her hair from view. Despite her beanie covering up parts of her, people believed the color matched her visuals. A light color like pink has the potential to wash someone out, but it suits IU perfectly!

Some comments read,

“It suits her! I just think the beanie was a mismatch.”

“Her hair is pretty, but it would be better if she removed the hat.”

“Without the hat, her hair color is pretty, and it totally suits her.”

“I freaking love the pink hair on her.”

Others, however, were hyped for other reasons. Historically, when an idol unveils a new hair color, it means they are preparing for a comeback! IU’s last comeback was in 2021 with “LILAC,” meaning it has been nearly three years since IU has dropped new music.
