Johnny Depp was sporting an unusual do at the Golden Globes, but his ex Vanessa Paradis’s hair is now stealing the spotlight. The French actress stepped out in L.A. Wednesday, and we did a complete double take when we saw the short curly do she was sporting.

Paradis chopped her shoulder-length strands into a cropped pixie style. She also switched up her signature caramel blonde color to a chestnut hue, with a few light highlights throughout. And to complete her total hair transformation, it looks like Paradis got a perm (or set her hair in some seriously effective hot rollers). Could it be she’s been a secret curly girl all along?

Yes, we questioned the possibility of a wig, but it appears from the photos (we can spot some scalp in front!) that her look is 100 percent real. Now, we want to know whether it’s for a role or not. We also want to know if Paradis’s new do is courtesy of her hairstylist pal John Nollet, who also is a hair designer on movie sets and is responsible for Depp’s famous dreadlocks in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Do you like Paradis’s bold new do? Share your thoughts below!

Damn girlfriend needs some serious dental work and a new hairstylist!!! Short hair did not help!

nadine on

this is NOT a perm. Who friggin gets a perm with a short hair cut? the longer version of her hair was not naturally straight.

Lisa on

If I was in this women’s shoes, in the public eye and rich….I would get the teeth fixed and get some fillers for the wrinkles. There is no shame in using cosmetic procedures when needed. She looks older then 41.

Why would you not get your teeth fix?! They look horrible as well as her hair!

nettrice on

She’s an international model. Are you?

This is not a good look for her. At.ALL.

Deng, major dental work on two front teeth. Ask Johnny for money you deserve to have a beautiful smile. Do it for yourself and your future lover. He has to stare at that teeth gap 24/7. It’s not pretty, Vanessa.
