NCIS' Pauley Perrette's Iconic Jet Black Hair Is All Fake

Pauley Perrette’s brunette locks may have become iconic on “NCIS,” but the actress’ hair is actually blond. Perrette regularly dyed it black with the help of hair and make-up assistants while filming the series, telling CBS Sunday Morning, “I end up with blond roots.”

The actress tweeted in 2013, “I dye my own hair black at home for #NCIS with store bought dye. I’m absolutely NOT a salon girl!” However, Perrette revealed on “The Queen Latifah Show” that this has led to health complications. She developed a PPD allergy, a condition that can happen when you’ve been dyeing your hair black for a long time. During filming on “NCIS,” she woke up with her head swelling and had to be rushed to the hospital. Afterward, the actress only used black hairspray — as she admitted on The Queen Latifah Show — until she left “NCIS” during its 15th season.

More recently, Perrette revealed a new, very colorful hairdo on Twitter that’s the exact opposite of Abby’s goth look. It does seem like regardless of the project, Perrette has a truly unique sense of style.
