Billie Eilish admitted to talk show host Stephen Colbert on Monday that she previously wore a wig of herself when she was on his show two months ago.

She said: ‘So from black to blonde is a big thing and to do it right and to do it where you’re not murdering your hair and keeping it healthy, I did the first process…
‘And then waited like two weeks so that it could kind of heal and then again and waited two weeks and waited a week, and blah blah blah. I just knew it would have these processing periods where it would look insane…
