The singing sensation always has flawless locks of blonde hair. Is it natural, or does she occasionally wear a wig to achieve her perfect look?
Kelly Clarkson does not wear wigs every day. Her hair is mostly natural, although she does get hair extensions and will sometimes put on a wig for fun.
Kelly’s Natural Locks
Kelly normally wears her natural hair as opposed to a wig. However, her “natural” locks do undergo quite a bit of coloring and styling to create the looks fans see on TV and online.
Kelly let fans see her completely natural hair in 2020 during quarantine. She took to Instagram to make announcements and filmed herself with no makeup and a simple half-up hairstyle.
Kelly does not have a stylist on-hand in quarantine, so her hair is completely natural and not professionally styled or colored. The video shows that Kelly’s roots have become slightly darker with age, so she usually dyes her hair to maintain its bright blonde color.
Kelly’s Dramatic Haircuts
Kelly is not afraid to take a chance and completely change her haircut. She has rocked multiple looks throughout her career and rarely gets stuck in a hairstyle rut.
Kelly also surprised fans when she got bangs. In 2018 she posted this new look, which she wore to the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s “Taste for a Cure” event.
Kelly credited her stylist, Candice Lambert McAndrews, with creating her new haircut that fans adored. The look did not last long, though, since Kelly tends to change her haircuts very frequently.
Kelly Sports Hair Extensions
Although Kelly’s hair is mostly worn natural, she occasionally changes her style with hair extensions. In 2019 a New Zealand based hair extension company was overjoyed to have Kelly wear their extensions for the Billboard Music Awards.
The hair extension maker, Erna Basson, explains that Kelly’s hairdresser carefully blended these hair extensions in with the singer’s hair for a natural look. Erna was very proud to have a major celebrity wear her product to an important event.
Kelly does not keep it a secret that she wears extensions to make her hair appear thicker. In fact, she openly took off one of her extensions on live TV!
When Kelly’s talk show guest, Dr. Phil, bemoaned his baldness, the singer quickly made a half-joking attempt to help. Without a second thought she pulled off one of her her long blonde hair extensions and put it on his shoulder in a gesture of kindness.
Kelly said that she wears the extensions because her hair is getting thinner as she ages. She was frank about her extensions and also used them to show Dr. Phil that everyone loses hair with age.
Kelly Only Wears a Wig for Fun
While Kelly’s hair is thinning with age, she still has very beautiful natural locks. She does not wear a wig on a daily basis but does put one on for fun on certain occasions.
Kelly will wear a wig to fit a role or costume every now and then. In 2016 Kelly wore a wig when she dressed up as the singer Sia for Halloween.
Sia is known for her iconic white wig, so Kelly had to wear one to complete her look. With her wig on, Kelly took to Facebook live to stream a cover of Sia’s song Chandelier for fans.
Kelly does plenty of unexpected and fun things with her hair, all without wearing a wig. She may wear a wig once in a while for a costume but usually shows off her beautiful natural hair.
