In probably less amount of time then it took holding a flat iron to her head, Taylor Swift appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno with her normal golden curly locks.

Leno said to her, "You looked completely different last night!"

She replied: "They straightened it. My hair is naturally fro'd out. It's always curly, so it's a little easier. But last night they straightened my hair."

She said people were stunned by it. "I walked through the halls of this award show and I'm passing by people that I know, and I'm like, 'Hey,' and they're like walking by," she said. They didn't recognize her. "I felt like I was back in junior high," she said.

Either way, the girl looks good.
