15 Rare Photos Of Celebrities With Natural Hair
Meghan Markle looks totally different with her curls!
While it might appear that celebrities are naturally gifted with perfectly-coiffed hairdos that stay impeccably styled on the day-to-day, in reality, this isn’t the case. Celebs are more like us than we think, which means while they have their fair share of good hair days, they also experience the not so good hair days. Like frizz. And grease. And those annoying kinks that refuse to be tamed.
If you need proof that all celebrity hair isn’t super-sleek, shiny and straight by default, here are a few examples of celebs rocking the natural hairstyle. They might go even further than surprise you- maybe you’ll even be inspired to proudly show off your own natural hair every once in a while.
She might be famed for her long, sleek, high pony tails, but behind closed doors, Arianna Grande’s natural hair is the exact opposite- short, bouncy curls. Although the thank u, next singer rarely showcases the style on-camera, a post to Instagram back in 2015 is enough to leave us wanting more.
J-Lo seems to look red-carpet ready on all occasions. While her hair is usually long, blonde and lustrous, the singer and producer posted a no-makeup vacation selfie that showed it in a much more chilled-out messy bun. Granted, it looks more pristine than our messy buns could ever look, but it’s proof to us that even J-Lo’s hair takes a day off every now and then.
It’s no secret that Adele’s a fan of a fancy beehive, but there’s plenty of evidence on Instagram that not all of her looks rely on hundreds of bobby pins and a can of hair spray. The Someone Like You singer also has a substantial wig collection, but it’s nice to see that she’s equally as happy to rock the natural look on the day-to-day.
We love that Alicia Keys is such an advocate for the natural look. While she still sometimes rocks the high-styled hair on the red carpet, these days we’re more used to seeing her with a fresh face and statement afro.
Katy’s hair seems to have been every shade of the rainbow in all the years she’s been in the spotlight- as well as every length, style and cut. But in a recently-shared Instagram pic, she proved her looks weren’t always as out-there as they are now. We love the more natural shade of brown, although we doubt Katy will be going back there any time soon.
A self-proclaimed wig lover, we’ve come to expect Cardi to rock up at this event and that with a different coloured ‘do than the last one, all equally as vivid and colorful. Her natural hair, however, is far more toned down. In a stunning selfie posted to Instagram in 2015 (since deleted), the rapper proved that she can still do candid as good as the next person.
Another lover of the wigs, Lady Gaga’s bold makeup and hairdos have given her something of a reputation since she shot to fame as a singer-songwriter, but that’s not to say the star isn’t a fan of the occasional no-makeup, messy-haired bed selfie. We love getting to see behind the performer to the real person.
Oprah has never been one to shy away from her natural hair, and we love her for it. The legendary television host’s hair journey over the years has been iconic in itself. Recently she seems to be reverting back to her old 80s ‘do, teased but otherwise natural, and we think it suits her the most.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Is there anything SJP doesn’t look flawless in?! The American actress and designer, most famous for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City, looks equally as chic with her super-smooth runway hair as she does with her casual, everyday waves. It seems the star has been favouring the more natural look recently, as proven by her most recent few Instagram selfies.
Even Zendaya’s natural hair days look better than any look we could spend hours putting together. We’re happy to see that the actress, singer and model proudly shows off her natural curls on her social channels, proving that straight and sleek isn’t the only style she’s capable of pulling off.
We’re used to seeing Michelle’s hair perfectly-preened, with elegant Marilyn Monroe-style bouncy curls that appear to be held up by magic itself (either that, or an amazing hairspray we are yet to discover). But the Our Girl star has admitted herself on Instagram that her natural hair goes a lil’ crazy in the humidity, and as proven by a selfie taken in the Caribbean, she pulls off the beach-waves look perfectly.
Sometimes celebs dye their hair for a role, realise they prefer it that color, and we never see their natural shade again. This was the case with film star Emma Stone- until she dyed her hair back from auburn to its natural blonde shade for The Amazing Spider Man. Are we slightly jealous that she suits two completely different hair tones so perfectly? Maybe a tad.
As much as we love the princess of pop’s hair however she has it- it’s been blonde, black, curled, cornrowed, chopped to a sleek bob and braided in the past- we think our favorite look is the cute afro of her childhood, as shared on her Instagram account in comparison with her own daughter, Blue. Aww, Bey- you both look adorable!
She seems to always look like she’s just walked straight out of a photoshoot, and there’s no denying that Demi Lovato is a natural beauty. She recently showed off her natural on Instagram, and we might even go as far as to say we prefer this look to some of her more polished red carpet ‘dos.
It appears Meghan Markle hasn’t worn her hair natural since her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018, but old pictures of the Suits star’s natural hair texture have been circulating the internet, and we love it! We’re yet to see the day Meghan steps out embracing her thick afro curls- but we’re sure it won’t be long until she does.
