10 Naturally Curly-Haired Celebrities Who Are Addicted To Their Straighteners


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

50982298PR737_RiviereWhile 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

Taylor Swift Curly Hair

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.

3. Beyoncé


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.

9. Shakira


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!

10. Rihanna


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.

      My hair used to be very Felicity until I KILLED IT with my straightener. I’m desperately trying to get my curly hair back and it just won’t listen.

      Shakira has black hair naturally. I remember that stage of her career because that’s when she became internationally recognized.

      I actually forgot a lot of these people were curly (namely, Halle Berry, Shakira, Mariah Carey, Mila aaaand Taylor Swift).

      Okay so with Beyonce’s hair, those are braided extensions at the root. She sported braids for a long time, that’s not her natural texture. Her natural hair is gorgeous, though. That’s not Halle Berry’s either, I have seen some amazing human hair wigs in that texture and of course she probably had access to one. She rocked short hair for so long that she has worn some extensions and pieces to switch it up, but I love her natural hair. Rihanna is wearing a lace front in that last picture. Her hair is a wonderful kinky texture, as you can see in her baby pic. Honestly, Rihanna is the MASTER of switching up hairstyles, you’re right. The only place you’ll probably see her real texture is as an (adorable) baby. I did find another pic but it was really unflattering. I attached photos not sure i they worked or not, first time trying it on here.

        You were so more diplomatic in your answer than I would have been, Chelsea. :)

        That baby pic is so cute! This might call for a celebrity baby hair gallery.

      • Chelsea DeLoney

        I KNOW. I melted a little lol she is a very beautiful woman, but obviously was kicking butt as a baby.

    • NYCNanny

      Mila pic… That’s wavy, not curly.

      • Chelsea DeLoney

        Yep! According to my eyes and the texture scale lol Still pretty hair.

    • Krusticle

      Google “Nicole Kidman as a child” and you’ll see she just jumped on the 1980s perm wagon with the rest of us.

    • Andrea

      Taylor Swift may have naturally curly hair, but she has spent a lot of time with a curling iron in that picture.

    • EmilieSeltzer

      Wow Hair curly is very unique and different Hair cut and make a more attractive in the Modern fashion .

    • Sarah Murchison

      Hair extensions are the new thing! Beyonce is rumored to have carried around trunks filled with different hair styles. It’s amazing what these things can do for celebrities and people. http://www.indianhair.net/
