Several WWE Superstars have made changes to their looks over the years, including their hair colors.
Mandy Rose debuted a brand new look last Tuesday on NXT 2.0. God's Greatest Creation ditched the blonde hair for a brunette look. Other WWE Superstars have also dyed their hair several times in the past few years, like Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Carmella.
Seeing them with different looks, many fans get confused about the natural hair colors of some WWE Superstars. While many wrestlers have appeared on WWE TV with their real hair, a few others have used hair dyes to distinguish themselves from the rest of the roster.
Here are five WWE Superstars and their natural hair colors.
#5. WWE Superstar Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is known for often changing her hair color. On NXT, Banks had brown hair that later changed to purple as she made her way to Monday Night RAW.
Over the past few years, the former WWE SmackDown Women's Champion has dyed her hair in different colors, including pink, green, and blue. Banks' obsession with changing her hair color goes back to her childhood.
In 2018, she explained why she likes to dye her hair in different colors in an interview with Red Carpet Report.
"Ever since I was little, I wanted different hair colors, but my mom said I couldn’t. So when I was old enough to not listen to my mom, which you should always do though, I decided to change it. I went from a burgundy to a pink, to light purple to dark purple now. I have a bit of blue in, so maybe I might switch it up soon, but who knows? At this time being, I’m good with purple. I feel like Barney, and I love Barney," Banks said.
Sasha Banks' natural hair color is black, as is apparent in her childhood photos. Over the past few years, The Boss has brought back her natural look a few times but never on WWE TV. She posted a few photos of herself on social media with black hair. Many fans complimented Banks on her natural look, calling her beautiful.
Sasha Banks has not been seen on WWE TV since teaming up with Bianca Belair to defeat Carmella and Zelina Vega on the July 30 episode of SmackDown. The Boss was supposed to face Belair for the SmackDown Women's Title at SummerSlam, but Becky Lynch competed against The EST of WWE instead.
#4. WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch
SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch is another superstar who has appeared on WWE TV with different hair colors. The 34-year-old had brown hair while competing on NXT. When The Man debuted on Monday Night RAW, she had fiery red/orange hair. In the following years, she used a few darker shades of the same color.
Lynch is not naturally a redhead. In her childhood photos, The Man had dark brown hair. She also had the same hair color while working as a flight attendant before becoming a full-time pro wrestler.
While she was pregnant last year, The Man revealed a new blonde look. However, she ditched the blonde hair as she returned to WWE at SummerSlam. The 34-year-old brought back her trademark red/orange hair.
Earlier this year, Lynch revealed that a WWE writer wanted her to shave her head, but she refused the idea.
"Oh yes, yes… No, not even [not in a WWE storyline]. This was the whole pitch that I got sent to by a writer. It was like, 'What if Becky shaves her head?' and that was pretty much it. It wasn’t something that I did on TV. It wasn’t I lost my hair in a match. It was just, 'What if Becky was bald?' I was like, ‘No!'," she said.
Becky Lynch has not competed on WWE TV since defeating Belair at SummerSlam. However, she is set to go one-on-one with Bianca Belair at Extreme Rules.
#3. WWE Superstar Carmella
Like Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, WWE Superstar Carmella has had several hair colors throughout the past few years. The former SmackDown Women's Champion spent most of her WWE career as a blonde. However, it is not her natural hue.
In 2018, The Princess of Staten Island debuted a new look at a WWE live event in Tucson. Carmella ditched her blonde locks for a darker shade. The 33-year-old revealed a new reddish-brown hair color.
Carmella later addressed her hair color change in an exclusive WWE.com interview.
"I just wanted a change. I mean this is my natural hair color. I want to go back to my roots, no bun intended. I just wanted a change so...," she said.
Speaking about the fans' reactions to her new look, Carmella disclosed that people liked it. Despite this, the former WWE Women's Champion soon returned to her blonde hair.
In 2019, a fan on Twitter asked Carmella to bring back the dark hair. In her reply, the 33-year-old WWE Superstar revealed that she is not allowed to do so.
#2. WWE Superstar Eva Marie
Eva Marie is a natural brunette. However, she had to change her hair color after signing with WWE in 2013. In an interview with E! News, The 36-year-old told the story of why she ditched the brown hair for a fiery red one.
"When I signed with WWE, they said, 'Hey, can you dye your hair because you look way too familiar to the Bella Twins?' You know we're both Mexican-Italian, dark features, so we couldn't have that going on, right," revealed Eva.
WWE originally wanted Eva Marie to go platinum blonde. The Leader of the Eva-Lution had a previous unpleasant experience with having blonde hair, so she turned down the idea.
"If you call my mom up she'll show you pictures—I was blond in high school and it was not a good look. So I'm sitting in New York Wrestlemania and I'm getting told, 'You have to dye your hair platinum blond.' And I was like, I can't do it, I can't do it. There's no way I'm [not] gonna feel confident in my own skin. So I went red. Fire red," she added.
Eva Marie soon became known as the All Red Everything. Her red hair identified her first run in WWE, which ended in 2017. After leaving WWE, the 36-year-old appeared with different hair colors, including black and purple.
Earlier this year, Eva Marie returned to WWE. Instead of her famous red, she now has pink hair.
#1. WWE Superstar Mandy Rose
Mandy Rose is often compared to WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. Besides looking a little similar in regards to physical features, they both had blonde hair. Shortly after her departure from WWE, Stratus ditched the blonde hair and returned to her natural color, dark brown. Rose is now sporting dark hair, too.
Unlike Stratus, Rose was born with blonde hair that got a little darker over time. However, she teased a hair color change last year when she posted photos of herself wearing a brunette wig on Instagram stories. A year later, Rose shocked the WWE Universe on NXT, revealing a brand new brunette look.
It is not the first time Rose's hair has come into play in WWE. God's Greatest Creation was engaged in a feud with her best friend Sonya Deville last year. During the rivalry, Deville chopped parts of Rose's hair off.
Rose and Deville were then scheduled to go one-on-one in a hair versus hair match at the 2020 SummerSlam pay-per-view. Nonetheless, WWE later changed the stipulation to a no disqualification match, which Rose won.
Rose recently returned to NXT from Monday Night RAW. She joined forces with Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne to create a new stable. The three ladies defeated Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter, and Sarray last Tuesday.
