These days, Amber Rose is known for her bleach-blonde, crew cut hairstyle—but she didn’t always look like that!
The model took to Instagram to share a snap from an official school portrait from 1989 — when she was only 6-years-old. In the pic, Mrs. Wiz Khalifa has brown hair that’s cut short and wears oversized pink glasses.
In the years that followed this, Amber found herself working as a stripper at age 15 after she and her mother landed on the streets.
As for her very different look, she shaved her head for the first time when she was just 19 and still working as a stripper.

“After I shaved it, I cried for a days, until I realized it looked dope,” she told the New York Post.
It wasn’t until years later she was discovered as a model, started dating A-listers (we’re lookin’ at you, Kanye West) and became a household name in Hollywood.
