I can see why we forgot about some of these–or tried very hard to forget about others. Celebrities are masters of crafting their own image. Some celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, embrace their naturally curly hair, and it becomes a celebrity in its own right. Kit Harrington‘s curly Jon Snow mane even has its own contract. Other celebrities prefer to tame their ringlets, and get them blowdryed straight so frequently that they probably forget about what their hair’s natural texture actually looks like too.
Here are 10 celebrities who have spent a small fortune on flat irons and Brazilian blowdrys to keep their naturally curly locks under wraps:
1. Nicole Kidman
While some parts of Nicole Kidman never seem to change, despite the march of time, her hair has changed dramatically over the years. Now we’re lucky if we see so much as a wave, yet alone a defined curl.
2. Taylor Swift
We all know that Taylor Swift has curly hair, but it has been awhile since we’ve seen her curls in all their princess ringlets glory. And it’s easy to forget how fairytale perfect they are. Instead she’s been playing around with loose waves and a classic bob that goes perfectly with her signature red lippy.
Beyoncé has had a lot of different hairstyles including super long braids, a pixie cut and choppy bob, to name just a few of the hairstyles in the past year, so it’s easy to forget her hair actually looks like this. (You thought I would do the forgetting Destiny’s Child members joke there didn’t you?)
4. Mariah Carey
I am still too distracted that Mariah Carey actually went on the subway looking like a fairy princess to remember what her hair looks like now, yet alone its natural state.
5. Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake must have one hell of a publicist because I don’t know how he managed to make us forget that Justin’s hair looked like this and that he wore blue-tinted sunglasses. Give that man a raise.
6. Keri Russell
Keri Russell preference for loose waves or straight locks, makes it seem like the spiral curls were a perm just for Felicity, but we know better.
7. Mila Kunis
When I think of Mila Kunis, I don’t thing “pregnant” or “she and Ashton Kutcher are the cutest couple ever.” I think how she has hair commercial shiny board straight locks. Who knew that was all the magic of a blowdry?
8. Halle Berry
Halle Berry has had short hair for so long, it’s difficult to know what her natural texture is, but this photo tells us it’s corkscrew curly.
The closest thing Shakira will do to her curly texture is a bit of bed head. She’s a pro at concealing her true hair–remember she’s actually a brunette!
Rihanna has had so many different hairstyles that I don’t think she even knows what her natural hair looks like. This photo might be the only evidence of her au-natural kinky texture.
