Chrissy Teigen isn’t afraid of a hair change. In January 2021, she experimented with a bright purple wig. The month before, she got a cut that very much resembled The Rachel. And now, she’s trying out an icy grey-blue wig, which she dubbed on Instagram her “midlife crisis hair.”
Teigen is working on a project with comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, and she posted a photo of the two of them (plus Maniscalco’s wife, Lana Gomez) to IG and captioned it, “This man, one of the most brutally funny people I’ve ever met, didn’t say a word about my midlife crisis hair for the entire taping. @sebastiancomedy and @lanagomez thank u for having me.”
She teased the look in an Instagram selfie video, as well, where the blue really comes out. “Trust me, it’s my midlife, LOL,” she wrote in the caption.
Whatever the inspiration behind this color, it’s amazing. Maybe Chrissy Teigen wanted to try something new in wake of the big news that she’s leaving Twitter. The Cravings author decided to shut her account down for good because it “no longer served her as positively as it served her negatively.”
“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” Teigen wrote in her goodbye tweets. “But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”
She continued, “My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl, but I’m just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”
