    For the Hollywood set, trying a new hair look is far from novel. Thanks to extensions, wigs, and skilled colorists, changing up your 'do is easy — and far less damaging than it once was. Don't like it? Dye it back, chop it off, or toss a wig over it. Done and done!

We may know Ariana Grande and Kerry Washington best with their hair smooth and shiny, but they both actually have curly locks.

    Ahead, we uncover what 17 celebrities look like with their au naturel hair colors or textures. To be clear: We think they look incredible either way — but it's always fun to take a trip down memory lane, right?
