The highly anticipated solo debut of Blackpink’s Lisa is almost upon us. After months — even years — of waiting, the K-pop star finally confirmed a date to mark on our calendars. On Wednesday, it was announced on social media alongside a photo of Lisa with braided pigtails about as long as we’ve been waiting for this moment. Come September 10, we can expect to see several more stunning hair moments from the MAC global ambassador when her first single drops.
For now, we will feast our eyes on Lisa’s gorgeous thigh-grazing silver braids. The red adornments tied to the base and ends of them perfectly pull together the complete crimson look. Just look at her candy apple-red graphic liner and matching metallic lipstick — courtesy of Blackpink’s longtime makeup artist Maeng, of course. (At home, you can recreate them with the Colourpop Try Me BFF Liquid Liner and MAC Lip Shine in Fresh Moroccan.)
Don’t even get me started on Lisa’s latest Unistella masterpiece on her coffin-shaped acrylics, either. Not only do they pack the same lengthy punch as her hair, but Lisa’s nails also echo the bandana print on her dress, necklace, and pigtails. Personally, I’m a sucker for a matchy-matchy look, so bravo Miss. Lisa.
Over the years, Lisa has experimented with various plays on pigtails. The childhood hairdo always seems to complement her signature blunt bangs. However, Lisa’s solo debut teaser look is the first time she’s incorporated silvery gray extensions and chunky braids into her pigtails. I can only imagine what else she has in store for us next month — some bold wigs, perhaps? Only time will tell.
