Katherine Heigl loves changing her look.
"I've been auburn, chocolate brown, and darker blond with big chunky streaks," the 28-year-old star tells InStyle.
"All I ever do is throw it in a bun," she says.
How does Katherine Heigl do it? By keeping the long mane manageable with the help of combing Kerastase conditioner in it daily "so it doesn't turn into a big dreadlock."
Where her simplicity wanes is with makeup. "I could open a beauty supply store in my house," Heigl says.
Friends have even asked her to do the makeup for their weddings. As her own nuptials approach (her fiancÃ© is musician Josh Kelley, and they're rumored to be marrying this winter), it's nice to know she could fill in if the makeup artist is a no-show.
Here's a look at the many different looks of this talented actress. Behold, Katherine Heigl's transformation through the years...

2005 (left): With a role on the mega-hit Grey's Anatomy, she has a reason to smile Great teeth is another. 2007 (right): On the red carpet, Katherine Heigl turns up the heat with head-to-toe glamour. "Old Hollywood style is coming back," says stylist Sean Flanigan, who has worked with the star.
