Time has shown us that when K-pop stars change their hair colors, new music is most likely on the way. EXO-CBX fans got the message loud and clear today that a comeback is on the horizon when members Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin showed up at Incheon International Airport with brand-new hair hues.
Let’s start with Baekhyun’s, as his change is the most obvious. Unlike the other members of the EXO subunit, the singer didn’t obscure his new pink hair under a hat. Baekhyun has dyed his hair various shades of pink since his EXO debut in 2012, but this one seems to be new for him. Let’s call this shade flamingo pink. From the blurry airport photos I scrolled through on Twitter, the pastel pink color seems to have a hint of orange to it. If you suddenly feel the urge to dye your hair pink now, you can find some tips here.

Xiumin and Chen, on the other hand, had their new hues hidden under baseball caps. However, both had some hair peeping out from under their hats. From the back of Chen’s head, you can clearly tell he has a reddish brown shade going on. Xiumin’s hair is the hardest to make out under his royal blue cap, though. The eldest EXO member appears to be blonde now. This look could be temporary — the light shade may very well be the base for another brighter shade. Because his hair was black just days ago at the Olympics closing ceremony, it could take stylists multiple sessions to get his hair the right shade of blonde before adding color.

Hopefully, Baekhyun will post some selfies of the trio on his Instagram soon, so we can get a closer look at their new hair colors.
