Meghan Trainor looks fabulous with red hair, but she wasn't so sure about it at first

Meghan Trainor has been "all about that" blond hair since we first met her a couple of years ago, but she debuted a new darker color at the 2016 Grammy Awards... and it looks amazing!

The "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" singer showed off her auburn hairstyle during a tribute performance to Lionel Richie, and it totally goes with her fiery vocals and bold personality.

Well, technically she first showed it off on Instagram over the weekend. The style comes courtesy of celebrity hairstylist and friend Lorien Meillon. Meillon, who works at the Ken Paves salon in Los Angeles, often shares photos of Trainor on Instagram.

Though it totally suits her, it doesn't sound like it was totally her idea. Her record label said she should show off a different color for her upcoming second album.

"My hairstylist said, 'We're gonna cut it. And we're gonna dye it.' I cried, and now I love it. I just have to get used to it," she told Seventeen. "For 14 years I was blond. I haven't had brown hair since I was three years old."

But she looks completely confident, something we chalk up to her awesome personality.

"I continue to choose what I feel most comfortable and confident in," she told Refinery29 of her personal style. "My stylists in NY and LA have really helped me define my style over the year. Every day I’m learning new fashion and makeup tricks."

Trainor wasn't the only celebrity to show off a new 'do at the Grammys: Taylor Swift also debuted a Great Gatsby-esque bob on the red carpet.
