From weaves to microbraids to straight as straight gets, Kim Coles has done it all. We've gathered these pictures from her career throughout the years - and even a few before she went pro. Now, she's all natural, and we love her even more for it.

Kim Coles threw down the gauntlet and challenged herself to go natural! We couldn't be happier, and think she looks more beautiful than ever. Her natural curls definitely suit her vibrant personality as well.

Says Kim, "I chopped off 20 years of hair that came in a bag and I'm embracing the hair that grows on my head... My new nickname is Kim Coils!"

So pretty in pink. Love that hair!
