14 Stars Who Showed Off Their Natural Hair and Got Heaps of Compliments

Celebrities usually show up for the cameras looking godlike. Perfect makeup, a tailored dress, and hair that the stylist has been working on for hours. Fortunately, the trend for natural beauty is taking Hollywood by storm, which means that celebrities are more and more often showing off their natural looks with no hair extensions or styling products. And it seems to us that nature is no worse than any hairdresser.

We’ve gotten used to the pop diva’s straight, long hair, which Selena often has on the red carpet, as well as in films and TV series. Nature, on the other hand, gifted Gomez with voluminous curls. The singer once showed off her curly hairstyle on her Instagram page. Fans immediately noted that the wavy hair suited the star very well.

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer openly talks about having had liposuction and battling endometriosis, so showing up without makeup or hair styling is no big deal for her. But the topic of hair has been an issue for Amy for many years. The actress confessed that for a long time, she felt ugly and unloved because of her trichotillomania. People with this disorder compulsively pull out their hair. Schumer has suffered from it since high school.

Lili Reinhart

Lily’s signature style is a low bob or sleek hair pulled back. The actress’s fans were shocked when, on social media, the star shared a snapshot of herself with the curls gifted to her by nature. The natural blonde with light-colored eyes and fine curls in the photo is a very different look from the Reinhart we’re used to seeing in movies.

Miranda Cosgrove

Miranda naturally has wavy hair. The actress sometimes puts her luxurious locks up in a bun and other times highlights the waves with a style that adds volume. In the shot, the star allows herself to be different and isn’t shy about appearing makeup-free with wet hair.

Zendaya looks good with any look — straight hair, lush curls, voluminous retro styles, fine braids, and her natural curls. And while previously Zendaya only showed her natural curls on her social media pages, she now appears with them in movies, as well as on the red carpet. And the actress is an expert when it comes to curls. Following her instructions, you can easily awaken the natural wave in your hair.

Every appearance by H.E.R. on the red carpet is a hair extravaganza. Her voluminous hair is always an eye-catcher. The singer prefers to go to social events with a long ponytail or wavy hair let loose around her shoulders. But the star’s recent Instagram post showed what tight curls nature has gifted her with.

Jennifer Lopez

While on stage J.Lo wears a lion’s mane, the diva can appear without her hair extensions in front of her followers and receive thousands of likes and compliments in the comments. That’s how Lopez revealed her natural shoulder-length hair. The star is naturally curly, so her bleached locks form waves as they frame her face.

Emmy Rossum

It’s hard to believe that Emmy Rossum fought against her natural curls in every way possible. The actress even straightened her hair chemically for years before giving up. Rossum was able to finally learn to love her frizzy hair after she had her daughter. The star doesn’t want her child to struggle against her own nature but to fully embrace it.

Dita Von Teese

The queen of burlesque Dita Von Teese literally created herself. The star was born blonde, but it was the image of a seductive brunette what brought her fame. At the beginning of her career, Dita entrusted the dyeing of her hair to her brother-in-law, who was a hairdresser, but she soon took the dye and the brush into her own hands: “I hate sitting in beauty salons, and I feel good about myself when I know I can do it myself.”

Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland struggled with hair loss after a kidney transplant, but now the celebrity has no complaints about thickness or volume. The actress even jokingly refers to herself as Hagrid’s daughter. Haters online have suspected the star of having a perm — Sarah’s curls came as a huge surprise to them. Hyland got so tired of the gossip that she responded to them saying she’s never had a perm done.

Jessie J

Jessie J usually appears on the red carpet with impeccably sleek hair, but the singer didn’t inherit her straight hair. In 2020, the star appeared to her Instagram followers in all her natural glory: “Going to start wearing my natural hair texture more... My ‘curls’ are more just [like a] mess. So if anyone else has messy hair like mine, I would appreciate any recommendations on good vegan and cruelty-free hair products for messy hair.”

Gabrielle Union-Wade

The fine curls on Gabrielle’s head were a real surprise to her daughter: “See! Mama’s got hair like yours!! When I took my braids out, she was [shocked]. Now, mom & baby [are] both rocking their natural curls.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley

Tamera seems to have started walking the path of natural beauty. The actress welcomes her grays and gives free rein to her natural curls: “Decided to let the curls out. Me and the curls have cabin fever. All dressed up to go downstairs.”

Khloe Kardashian

The reality show star, who has an entire room dedicated to hair extensions, showed her followers what her natural hair actually looks like. Khloe took a series of selfies in the mirror at the gym. In the photos, you can see Kardashian’s voluminous, curly locks: “I rarely wear my natural hair texture. Felt kinda cute with it.”

Are you more likely to leave the house with or without having styled your hair?
