Bringing the heat to the MTV VMAs is J Balvin. The Colombian singer and rapper debuted a tiger-print hairstyle on Sunday night. Orange tiger stripes ran down the back of his head, along with ombré shades of orange toward the bottom of his hair. His daring new hair color was paired with a sleek white suit and black Prada sunglasses, ensuring all eyes were on him. In his preshow interview, Balvin said the new hair color took about three hours to apply.
It’s not the first time Balvin has worn a brand-new hairstyle to an award show. At the 2022 Grammys, he debuted blue hair with a massive red heart. Our love for him stems from his constant expression of himself through his fashion and beauty choices. He has had lime-green hair, blue hair, and, most recently, blonde hair.
During the Video Music Awards in New Jersey, Balvin has a big night ahead of him. This is his first appearance at the show since 2019, and he’s nominated for best Latin video. “Level de Perreo” will be performed by Balvin and Ryan Castro.
