Kira Kosarin has just debuted a brand new look! The Nickelodeon starlet took to her Instagram Story to show off her makeover to her followers and provide an explanation for her super dramatic transformation. Kira's traded her usual hairstyle for a voluminous, curly wig. Why? For a upcoming brand-new episode of The Thundermans, of course!
Kira went on to explain in her Instagram Story exactly why her character Phoebe will be rocking this faux hairstyle in an upcoming episode.
"So my character basically gets electrocuted in this episode, and this is my wig. Obsessed."
Kira unfortunately had to hold back a bit, as she didn't want to give away any serious spoilers. Understandable – but fans are dying to know!
"I can't really explain to you how or why this happens," she said. "But I wanted to share all of this with you."
Kira then made a point to clear up any confusion about the meaning behind her wig. The actress wanted fans to be aware that there are no negative intentions behind this style of wig, as she was afraid people may think she was comparing her look to an afro.
"I also just want to say preemptively before I get any comments about it, um this was not intended to be an afro. I have nothing but respect for natural curls and traditional hairstyles and would never try to do anything to be disrespectful."
The Nick star then told fans that she's really digging this new shade – she may even want to keep it!
"That being said, I'm greatly enjoying this. Also, it's a slightly different color than my natural hair, and I'm kind of wondering now if I should do my hair this color. I kind of want to get highlights when Thundermans is over. What do you think?"
It appears Kira rocked the wig all day, even when she wasn't shooting on set. She snapped a photo of herself catching some rays during her lunch break.
