In Honor of Kim Kardashian's Blonde Wig Prank, Let's Look Back at Other Hair Tricksters

Jun/26/2014 at 04:07 PM ET

We’re always excited when a celebrity has a new mane change, so when Kim Kardashian shared a series of pictures with new blonde tresses yesterday, our inboxes flooded with emails saying, “OMG! Did you see?!” Despite our suspicions that it might be faux, we couldn’t just ignore her new do — and of course, hours later, the reality star shared another picture of herself with the caption, “It’s just a wig! Looks so real though right?” Though she managed to fool many with her fake locks, she hasn’t been the first celeb to try a hair hoax.

Mindy Kaling Gets Bangs (and We Hope They're Real)

We’re having a Mindy Kaling moment right now at PEOPLE headquarters. Seriously, we love every style move she’s made recently (more on that here), not to mention her crazy-positive attitude and spot-on sense of humor (have you tuned in to The Mindy Project recently?). Now, the comedian just gave us something else to obsess over: her new bangs!

Kaling debuted her fringe Monday on Chelsea Lately, and shared the above photo on Instagram, with the caption: “I told Denno (@kateydenno) and Clariss (@clarisshair) I wanted to look like “one of Pharrell’s friends” and I think they did a great job. @helmutlang blazer and tshirt, @marcjacobs bling @Gucci shoes.” She also shared the below shot of her new look, writing “summer bangs.”

But — you might want to sit down for this one — we have a feeling they’re faux. Kaling has since posted photos sans bangs, which means she probably just wanted a fresh look for her talk show appearance. Sigh.

The actress loves to experiment with her hair. Just last week, she gave us a behind-the-scenes look at her extensions, and Mindy Project fans will remember that Dr. Mindy Lahiri kicked off season 3 with a pixie cut (just a wig!), which made her consider going short for real.

“I was, like, ‘This is kind of great,'” Kaling told Jimmy Fallon back in September. “I would do selfies and be, like, ‘This is hot,’ and I was, like, ‘Guys, am I one of those girls who can pull of pixie cuts?’ and immediately — no. My dad, my brother — they were, like, ‘Absolutely not.’

What do you think of Kaling’s bangs? Real? Faux? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Share your thoughts below!
