This may come as a shock, but a bunch of your favorite celebrities’ natural hair looks shockingly different than what you’re used to! Yep, with the use of products, extensions, blow dryers, curling irons, hair dye and straighteners, the stars can make their hair look pretty much any way they want it to. But every so often they show off their real locks, and it always takes fans by surprise because of how different it looks.
Just take Lili Reinhart, for example. The Riverdale star almost always has straight hair in the show or on the red carpet, but her tresses are actually super curly! What about Ariana Grande? She’s become pretty known for her signature long, straight hair, but in reality, she’s got super short curly locks underneath all those extension!
In fact, the songstress even wrote a song titled “My Hair” and released it on her 2020 album, Positions. “I think that’s kind of what I envisioned that song being about, is because it’s like such an intimate thing to be just like curly shower head,” Ariana said during an appearance on The Zach Sang Show . “The hair for me is such a guard, character facade type thing, and it’s had its own evolution, but it has always been this kind of costume piece.”
As fans know, it’s pretty rare that Ariana is seen without her straight ponytail. During the same October 2020, Ariana revealed that she as “somewhat publicly been defined” by her hair over the years.
“[Hair] definitely is [personal], especially when your hair kind of is something that you use to differentiate, you know what I mean?” she said. “It’s kind of like the red was Cat, and that was very much a character, and it was very much a portion of my life that I love and I am so grateful for. And I look at it and I love it and I see red hair … and I think fondly of that, but again, it’s not me.”
She continued, “My real hair, which is the humungous, curly, curly poof, is kind of, I don’t know … So few people get to see it and it’s cute, and it reminds me of me as a kid … it’s who I am privately. But so is this. I wear my ponytail all the time too, but the curls are definitely something that I don’t bring around much.”
