Celebrities change their hairstyles almost as often as they change their clothes. After all, it’s part of their job to take on a variety of personas. For these chameleons, hair dyeing, weaving, and wig-wearing are the norm — so much so that we might not know what their natural hair actually looks like. When we see celebs with their real hair, we can’t help but do a double take because they don’t look like the image we’re so used to seeing on the big screen.
