It's safe to say we've all had some hair disasters in the past, but it totally doesn't compare to Keira Knightley's hair blunders.

The actress has admitted that she now wears wigs because her gruaige got so bad from colouring it for movie roles.

Speaking to InStyle, Keira said: "I have dyed my hair virtually every colour imaginable for different films.

"It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head. So for the past five years I've used wigs, which is the greatest thing that's ever happened to my hair."

She also revealed how her hair drastically changed since having a baby.

“I have naturally crazy, curly hair – and since I’ve had the baby, it’s become 10 times thicker.

"So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks," she added.

Ah ladies, the things we go through to look good!

Ever watch that show on Discovery Channel, How it's made? Well, we did. And everything that was on the show suddenly became super interesting.

Well, one thing that we never came across was how wigs are made – and this video totally nails the intrigue.

How wigs are made

Making wigs is way more intense than you realized.

Moving faster than the speed of light, a wigmaker has to go through many steps for the outcome to be perfect.

Now, sit back with that glass of Chardonnay and enjoy. It'll mesmerise you.

Kylie debuted fab new hair the other day, and it was the first colour change in a while. But while she debuted it all dressed up in Florida, we wondered whether it would actually look good with casual wear – and it sooo does.

The reality star was out over the weekend on a shopping trip with friends, and she sported a super relaxed look.

Taking to the 90s trends, Kylie teamed her navy/purple-ish locks with a patterned bandana, baggy white jumper and leggings, along with Puma runners – and it gave us all the #StyleInspo goals.

We're especially loving the bandana because we're betting Kylie has unwashed, greasy hair under it (let's be honest, we've all had those days).

The 18-year-old recently signed a contract with Puma and shot a killer campaign, so no doubt we'll see her rocking the sports brand for months to come.

But as for her hair, she admitted the colouring is taking a toll so we'd stick to this one for a while.

For months she was seen at high-profile events sporting an array of eye-catching wigs in black, blonde and even blue.

Kylie Jenner later admitted the reason behind her love of artificial hair: her own tresses were seriously damaged after years of dyeing, styling and straightening.

However, the sacrifice seemingly paid off – and she marked her recent 18th birthday by swapping to a gorgeous ashy blonde.

"It took months of not dyeing my hair and wearing wigs to get my hair back to health so I can do this!!" she explained on Instagram while unveiling her new look.

So why is Ms Jenner, and just two weeks after the dramatic change, now back to wearing wigs?

Donning bright green, mermaid-style locks, she was on hand to launch the Sugar Factory American Brasserie in NYC – to which she also wore a stunning ivory crop top and matching pencil skirt from surprisingly affordable Aussie label, Zachery

Although known for her love of mega-expensive designers, Kylie's outfit cost just €125 in total – €52 for the top, and €72.50 for the skirt.

Still, it was very much her hair that proved the talking point of the event – with many fans speculating that the reality TV star's bleached mane is already suffering.

Indeed, in recent days her mop has certainly looked tired and stressed, with the originally 'dirty blonde' hue turning to a more brassy shade. 

As well as successfully launching the Sugar Factory, an event to which hundreds of fans and photographers showed up, Ms Jenner is enjoying something of a boon in popularity since turning 18 last month.

Despite the presence of numerous other high-profile celebrities, she and her rapper boyfriend Tyga, 25, have been the toast of New York Fashion Week.

Yesterday, she also modelled pieces from her brother-in-law Kanye West's new Yeezy season 2 collection, the unveiling of which took place at the Skylight Modern venue in Manhattan's swish Chelsea district. 

That and the app that she unleashed this week is proving to be a runaway hit.

And on social media, she is still the world's most viewed user on Snapchat, while on Instagram she now boasts some 36million followers. 

 

I love you guys so so much.

She certainly LOVES to experiment with different hair colours and styles – usually with the aid of a wig. Yes, Kylie Jenner has in recent months sported everything from bronde, to blonde to blue tresses.

Just at the weekend, in fact, she wore a jet-black fringed wig to the VMAs in Los Angeles.  

Now, the 18-year-old reality TV star has revealed the reason behind her regular use of artificial locks: her hair was seriously damaged after years of dyeing, styling and straightening.

Finally, however, she has returned to her natural locks – opting for dramatic "ashy dirty blonde" for the autumn. 

Taking to Instagram, a platform on which she boasts some 34.5million followers, she explained that it "took months of not dyeing my hair and wearing wigs to get my hair back to health so I can do this!!"

Admitting that the transformation took a full day, she added: "But this shits a process!" Ms Jenner concluded with: "I'm coming for u khloé!" – referring to her light-haired older sister and the inspiration behind her new look.

Marking her recent 18th birthday with a celebration in an LA nightclub, Kylie wore a long blonde wig for the occasion. She's also experimented with a 'bronde' version – and earlier this year had a mop of blue locks.

Here, SHEmazing! takes a look at some of Ms Jenner's recent styles…

Nicki Minaj is being sued by Atlanta wig designer Terrence Davidson who claims that she stole his wigs designs and thus cheated him out of millions of dollars.

According to reports, Terrence, who made Nicki’s pink upper bun wig, her fox fur wig and her superbass wig, prides himself on helping the Starships hitmaker reach the top after he created a host of “fresh, hip and unique wigs for the singer.”

Apparently, Terrance and Nicki, whose real name is Onika Maraj, had made a deal to form a wig making business that would sell the wigs that the singer made famous.

However, the designer says that the American rapper actually started it without him and turned it into a multi-million dollar business selling his designs.

Davidson’s attorney, Christopher Chestnut, says: “Her lawyers may complicate it, but we don’t need to get into intellectual-property law. This is basic American morality. Nicki Minaj lied to this man and cheated him.”

He is suing the singer for $30,000,000 (that’s a lot of zeros)
