Celebs Who Look Different With Natural Hair Color

by Alexa Dragoumis

Have you ever had that one color chamelion friend that's naturally brunette but looks equally as good, if not better, as a blonde? Believe it or not, these nine celebs who look totally different with their natural hair color are that girl. While I'm totally jealous that blond looks so natural on Jennifer Aniston, you'd be surprised to see just how different she looked before those perfectly sun-kissed highlights became her norm.

Don't get me wrong — these beauties can certainly pull off any hue their hearts desire, but you might be surprised to learn that they spend much more time at the salon than you think! As a naturally dark brunette, there have been a few times where I've wondered if I'd be able to pull off that blonde alter ego of mine — especially during the summer months. So if you're considering a change before the warm weather hits, these photos might be just the inspiration you needed!

Since I know you're dying to see some photos, let's get right to it! From Scarlett Johansson to Angelina Jolie, here are a few shocking before and afters that are sure to give you the courage to book that appointment.

There's no doubt Blake Lively's personality is as sunny as her hair color, but if you paid attention to her habits during her pregnancy, you probably already know it's not her natural shade.

I would have had no idea if she didn't show off those roots!
