Fans first knew Raven-Symone as the adorable Olivia on "The Cosby Show" or as the cute teen psychic on Disney's "That's So Raven", but she has now completely got rid of her past image and made some dramatic transformations. She has said goodbye to her signature weave and is currently rocking colorful braids, not to mention her edgy makeup. All in all, the innocent Raven people used to see back in the day is no more.
Amanda Bynes has had a roller coaster ride in the Hollywood industry ever since she began professionally acting at the age of 7. She was just an innocent little girl at the time, sporting bright smile and enjoying the time of her life. But things took a downward turn for her in 2012, when she got in a lot of troubles with the laws. She started to change her appearance as well, rocking extreme makeover and undergoing surgeries. Most recently, Amanda showed off a heart tattoo on her cheekbone.
Cole Sprouse is literally growing up in the spotlight. He and his twin brother Dylan Sprouse have been appearing on TV screens even before they turned a year old, being cast on the 1996 series "Grace Under Fire" and becoming even more popular due to their show "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody". Thus, people have pretty much witnessed how Cole went from a cheerful kid with a blonde bowl cut to a fine young man in black hair. He is currently known for his role as Jughead on "Riverdale".
Aaron Carter rose to fame as angelic pop star back in the 1990s and became one of the most popular kids in the world by the time he was 10. However, that later changed when he grew up and found himself in a downward spiral that left him in rehab and losing a lot of weight. He soon gained weight after treatment and is now sporting a huge face tattoo as well as a lot of other inks on his body.
Ten years ago, Kylie Jenner was merely a freckle-faced 12-year-old teenager who just so happened to belong in a famous family and had her life documented on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians". She tended to opt for more conservative looks at the time, but as time went by, she grew confident with her own body and started to flaunt her curves more and get lip fillers to enhance her look. Kylie has now completely gotten rid off her innocent image and become known for her envy-inducing body.
Macaulay Culkin has gone on several transformations ever since he first stole people's heart through his role as cute and witty Kevin in "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2". He once made people worried about his well-being after photos of him looking disheveled in long hair and untidy beard surfaced online. Fortunately, he has since gained weight and sported shorter haircut, looking much healthier than before.
When Justin Bieber first came on the scene in 2007, he was just a 14-year-old boy with hopes and dreams that successfully charmed a lot of teenagers. But just like any teenagers his age, he began to change as time went on, bidding farewell to his trademark swoop look and investing himself in extensive tattoo work. He also got caught in troubles with the laws a lot of time, though he has apparently redeemed himself now.
Miley Cyrus has been in the spotlight for most of her life, being cast in the titular role on Disney's hit series "Hannah Montana" and keeping the typical Disney star image. It wasn't until the series came to an end that the singer began to shed her wholesome Disney image, with her first big change occurring in 2012 when she cut her hair super short. She now often comes out in super revealing outfits and isn't afraid to show her racy side.
