Emma Stone Got A Perm — & We Have Questions

Celebrity hair changes are rarely predictable. Just last year alone, we saw A-list stars go from back-grazing lengths to ear-grazing pixies — and even more ditched their brunette roots for platinum hues.

Since it's not 1985, not many people request a perm at the salon anymore for many reasons, but there are exceptions, like Julianne Hough and Karlie Kloss.
