In Hollywood changing your hair completely is something that happens so often that it’s hard to remember what was the stars’ natural color to begin with. Luckily for you, we searched the net and found out the truth.
1. Ariana Grande
Although Ariana Grande’s hairstyle rarely changes, the color has gone from platinum blonde to warm brown to everything in between! If you look back far enough though, you will discover that the singer was born with dark brown, almost black, hair that matches her deep brown eyes.
2. Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts has been living life on the blonde side ever since appearing as ice queen Chanel in the TV show Scream Queens. But if you remember this actress from her Disney days, you’ll know she was naturally blessed with a more demure shade of chestnut brown.
3. Emilia Clarke
Emilia Clarke seems born to be a blonde as the silver-haired queen in Game of Thrones; however, the actress is barely recognizable in real life with her natural brunette hair color, which she herself has said allows her to avoid the paparazzi!
4. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga’s platinum blonde locks are as show-stopping as her performances; however, her natural hue is closer to that of the downtrodden character she plays in A Star Is Born. Although she rarely rocks her real brown hair, the occasional Instagram photo pops up showing the star ‘au naturel’.
5. Katy Perry
Many were shocked when Katy Perry ditched her black-as-night mane for a bleach-blonde pixie cut, but perhaps it is more surprising that this change brings her closer to the hair color she was actually born with: golden blonde!
6. Nicole Kidman
It must be true what they say about blondes having more fun because Nicole Kidman has been rocking this hair color for so long, we almost forgot she was a natural redhead! But you need only look back to her classic films like Moulin Rouge and Practical Magic to see the coppery tones that suit her best.
7. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde’s brown locks suit her so much, you would be forgiven for thinking she was a natural brunette! But as it turns out, the actress dyed her hair darker to get more serious acting roles in Hollywood and avoid being typecast as the ‘dumb blonde’.
8. Sophie Turner
Think Sophie Turner is a natural redhead? Think again! Although the actress launched her career as redheaded Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones and is now playing the famous ginger superhero Jean Grey in the X-Men franchise, Sophie is in fact a natural blonde and has been seen regularly sporting her real hair color between film projects.
9. Karlie Kloss
This statuesque supermodel has been getting blonder and blonder with every passing year and is now practically platinum! Although this color definitely suits her, Karlie Kloss’s old casting shots show her true mousy-brown hair color which is less ‘bombshell’ but just as beautiful.
10. Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey has built the persona of a mysterious 1960s-esque songstress, complete with an auburn-colored mane to add that touch of sultriness! Although she does have naturally reddish hair, it is more on the strawberry-blonde end of the redhead spectrum – enough to make the singer unrecognizable in old photos.
