We associate certain hairstyles and hair colors with particular celebrities. There's Ariana Grande's ponytail, Zooey Deschanel's eye-grazing bangs, Gwen Stefani's platinum hue — you get the picture. Well, it turns out, these ladies didn't always have their signature 'dos (shocker, we know...). That's right, Gwen didn't come out of her mom's womb rocking a white-blond, asymmetrical bob — blasphemous, we know.
Curious what Ariana looks like sans ponytail? Or what hair chameleon Katy Perry's natural locks are like? Ahead, we take a trip down memory lane to show you. Click through to see what some of your favorite stars look like with their au naturel manes. Prepare for some serious double takes.
