Ever make a dramatic change in hair color, then catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and think you're looking at a completely different person for a split second? Hair color has the weird, transformative ability to do that, though you'll typically settle into your new look after a day or two. We're not sure if stars are just like us in this regard, but a few of our faves certainly change up their strands often enough that it's probably safe enough to assume. As proof that hair color can change your entire appearance, we compiled a list of celebrities who have been on both the light and dark ends of the spectrum. Keep scrolling to see each of their transformations.
1. Reese Witherspoon
Blink and you would have missed Reese's brunette phase, though we're sure Elle Woods would still have been in approval.
Never one to stick with a sole hue for very long, Rihanna has boldly gone where few have been before, with hairstyles pretty much spanning the rainbow. No surprise here, she wears a warm blonde just as well as her natural tone.
3. Jennifer Lawrence
Her brunette phase ended once all of the Hunger Games films wrapped, but it was such a good look, we wouldn't be surprised if Jennifer Lawrence crossed over to the dark side again in the future.
Though platinum blonde Bey has reigned supreme for years, early on, the queen sported a rich brunette tone.
5. Kim Kardashian
Remember that time Kim Kardashian went blonde for a total of 5 minutes? We were into the look, despite the fact that she returned to her roots about a week later.
6. Chrissy Teigen
Teigen's golden blonde was the perfect complement to her warm complexion, but in recent months, the star has been gradually shifting toward a rich chocolate shade.
7. Anne Hathaway
Back in her pixie phase, Anne Hathaway took her strands to an icy platinum tone.
8. Mariah Carey
She's been very Blondriah Carey in recent history, but every time we see a throwback brunette photo of the star, we consider it a good omen.
9. Drew Barrymore
Truth be told, there isn't a color under the sun Drew Barrymore can't work, as evidenced by her layers on either end of the spectrum.
10. Taraji P. Henson
Although Henson stuck to her natural color around the root area, her bright blonde bob still made a dramatic statement.
11. Jennifer Lopez
She's still Jenny from the block—albeit with slightly sunnier highlights.
