Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar

"19 Kids and Counting" star Michelle Duggar is about as well known for her consistent hairstyle as she is her big brood of children. However, the old style is gone - and in its place is a sleek, straight style.

And how is she liking the look? She loves it.

"Going from curly to totally straight was a shock for me," Duggar said of the makeover in honor of her 46th birthday, "but I am loving it and I have been doing both styles, curly and straight, since the cut."

"I enjoyed the fact that my whole family and my girls came up with this amazing way of showing how much they loved me with a 24-hour birthday surprise," she added to People.

However, she's not so sure husband Jim Bob Duggar likes it - and she only does what he likes. It's no secret that Jim Bob prefers longer hair, especially since Michelle and his gaggle of daughters all have long, long hair.

"I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him - what he likes is what I want," she said, adding that he's coming around the look. "I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different. But he does like it."

How about doing what you like, Michelle?

Regardless of whether or not she keeps the style, she's not the only reality star to switch up her look recently.

Kim Zolciak

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak is known for her big collection of big blond wigs, but the reality star actually has a full head of gorgeous hair. She showed it off earlier this year on Twitter - and now she's doing it again.

"Yes people she has hair!!! Just blew it out and it's all real!!" friend Nikit Pressley tweeted, along with a picture of Zolciak's shiny strands.

"Yes ma'am!" the new mom added in another tweet.

We have no clue why someone with such a nice head of hair would cover it up with a stuffy wig. However, it sounds like it's just something that Zolciak likes.

"I have beautiful [real] hair!" she told US Weekly earlier this year, adding in another interview that "I know I have great hair, but I love wigs and look good in 'em."

Maybe she's going to start going out sans wigs now? Let's hope for a newer, less made-up Zolciak - especially since she looks so much better with a more natural look.
