From her animated personality to her adorable family, there are so many reasons to love Kelly Ripa (Hayley, ALL MY CHILDREN). However, the one thing we’ve grown to love about her most is the fact that she has had stunning hair transformations over the years.
By the way, we’re not talking simple ponytails and elegant styles. We’re talking neon dye-jobs, kinky curls, pixie cuts and the works!
“[I spend] hours and hours on my head. I like to mix it up a little, I get bored,” she once said. And it definitely shows!
Take for instance Kelly’s edgy hairdo from her role on AMC. She actually rocked long, straight black hair with feathery bangs — had we not known it was her, we’d have totally gotten fooled into thinking she was someone else. Plus, who can forget about these big brown curls that she once wore at the 27th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards?

Are we the only ones who still can’t wrap our heads around how different she looked back then?
It’s just fascinating how one hair makeover can transform a person to the point where they look totally unrecognizable. Lucky for Kelly, she’s been able to successfully pull off every style she tried (talk about impressive!). We’re now starting to wish that we had her stylist for ourselves!
