September 22nd marks the official first day of fall, but it’s summer forever in Ciara’s world. In new behind-the-scenes glimpses of her upcoming single Better Thangs (and accompanying music video), Ciara’s look is like a clear June day personified: vibrant, luminous and so exciting. Ciara’s orange hair – a bold and dreamy tangerine – was created for her long-awaited collaboration with Summer Walker and captures all the warmth and vibrancy of the summer season with a glamor twist. The bouncy, retro blowout is all about volume, shape, and flirty layers, while this bright, happy shade feels like a visual manifestation of Ciara’s happy energy. Paired with her matching orange and gold makeup, it’s enough to make you wish fall had never come.

#1: Ciara’s tangerine hair
A perfect complement to Summer Walker’s vibrant pistachio green hair – set in a style to match, of course – the tangerine wig looks quite similar to Ciara’s go-to blowout style. She’s a long-time fan of serious volume, often accented with curtain bangs, but this side-parted version has even more of a throwback feel. It really focuses on her bangs, with its significant height and masterfully styled bangs that her bangs relax into. They blend into the squiggly layers for a slight ’70s feel that plays so well with the summery vibe of their overall video aesthetic.
#2: Ciara’s orange hair
Ciara’s close-up selfie shows just how perfect her makeup is. On her eyes, a soft mid-tone brown provides plenty of definition, while a laser-precise line of shimmery bronze shadow snakes across her liquid-liner cat-eye flicks. Finally, the inner corners of the eyes are illuminated by a golden shadow. Even her lipstick sports the same metallic shimmer for an all-over shine and flawless finish cohesion.
Ciara’s music video look is so striking that she had to comment on her fellow A-listers — Kerry Washington herself had to say what everyone was thinking, leaving a trio of fire sign emojis below the orange-haired selfie. With just a week left until the video release, this look is more than enough to flood the world. It looks like orange hair is the new red this fall.
