There are many celebrities who have gone through amazing transformations and makeovers throughout their career. Sometimes that includes losing weight, but other times it’s simply switching up their hair color. There are many celebrities who have a distinct look, but have switched it up for a short period of time by dying their hair.

This includes those who have bleached their hair or went a shade of blond. We probably all think about doing it at some point, after hearing the saying “blonds have more fun” a thousand times. But some people look completely unrecognizable with light locks! So which celebrities were we surprised to see dye their hair? Here are the nine most surprising celebrities who went blond.

1. Kanye West

The rapper has had a tough year. First, his wife, Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris and then Kanye had a mental breakdown and was hospitalized. He was released after being treated for temporary psychosis from sleep and water deprivation. Like a lot of people, the rapper decided to switch his look after going through the ordeal.

The first time he was seen in public at Rick Owens’s “Furniture” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, he had dyed his hair blond. It’s definitely different from his normal hair color, but it doesn’t look bad! He only dyed the front section of his hair. He, of course, is making more changes to his life and is reportedly making new music.

2. Emma Stone
