One of the most exciting parts of being an actress (or musician) is getting to embody different personas through the use of costumes, makeup, and hairstyles. Unlike the rest of us, for whom dramatic changes in appearance take too much effort to happen frequently, celebrities have access to dedicated teams of professionals who can completely change their looks for a particular role or event. It isn’t always the most natural-looking effect. However, the 12 ladies below haven’t yet struck upon a hair color that doesn’t flatter them. See if you can choose a favorite!

Despite her years as a brunette in the Twilight franchise, Kristen Stewart’s natural hair is actually closer to the blonde she rocked in On The Road. Her reddish ombre, while short-lived, was just as great a look.

We’ve always known her best as a blonde, but Scarlett’s turn with auburn hair in The Avengers started a trend we’re definitely okay with. No matter the hair, Scarlett is always exquisite.

Though we all seem to focus on her fashions, Beyonce’s hair shouldn’t be overlooked. Her changing hues may not be as dramatic as some, but there’s no doubt she’s as flawless as a blonde as she is a brunette.
When you’ve got a face as strong as Olivia’s, hair could almost be an afterthought. Luckily, she’s kept us on our toes by frequently switching it up.
We all remember her as brown-haired Mary from 7th Heaven, but Jessica Biel’s been more than just a brunette. She even spent a little while as a platinum blonde!
Throughout her career, Rihanna’s rocked countless hairstyles, experimenting frequently with length, texture, and a whole rainbow of colors.
