Style Files: Jasmine Villegas Shares Her Fashion Journey With Her Fans
One of the first things Jasmine Villegas says after we finish talking about the Timberlands she’s wearing is how excited she is to be turning 21. Villegas has been in the public eye since her first role at age 9 and her popularity went through the roof when she played Justin Bieber’s love interest in the “Baby” video at 16 — a video that’s been viewed over one billion times, by the way.
But now Villegas is ready to enter a more adult world, in her professional career and in her style. She tells us the reason she recently went blonde was to finally look a little older.
“My hair’s always been dark brown,” Villegas said. “I went through a couple of stages where I dyed the tips red, blue and purple but everyone was always like, ‘Oh, you look 15! You look so young, how old are you?’ So I [wondered] what can I do to look my age? I know looking young is cool but…I don’t always want to be cute.”
Villegas says the change made her not only feel older, but feel like a new person.
