J Balvin is bringing the heat to the MTV VMAs. On Sunday night, the Colombian singer and rapper arrived on the red carpet with a new, tiger-print hairstyle. The bright-orange hair color featured tiger stripes down the back of his head and an ombré color palette with lighter shades of orange toward the bottom. Balvin paired his iconic hair color with a sleek white suit and black Prada sunglasses, ensuring all eyes were glued to his daring new hair. During his preshow interview, Balvin said the new hair color took about three hours to complete.
It’s not the first time Balvin has brought a brand-new hairstyle to an award show. In April, he debuted blue hair with a massive red heart at the 2022 Grammys. He’s constantly expressing himself through his fashion and beauty choices, and it’s one of the many reasons we love him. We’ve seen him with lime-green hair, many variations of blue hair, and, most recently, blond hair.
Balvin has a big night ahead of him at the Video Music Awards in New Jersey. Not only is he performing at the show for the first time since 2019, but he’s also nominated for best Latin video. Balvin will perform “Nivel de Perreo” with Ryan Castro. Ahead, see photos of Balvin’s fabulous bright-orange hair at the VMAs.
