The Kissing Booth 2 has been a hit after it dropped on Netflix, but fans have been wondering if Joey King was wearing a wig in the sequel. Here's her hair transformation revealed.
With many people speculating about whether or not it was her real hair, we’ve got the low-down on Joey's hair transformation…
Did Joey King wear a wig in The Kissing Booth 2?
As it turns out, Joey was wearing a wig whilst filming The Kissing Booth 2!
This is because the 20-year-old actress shaved her head in November 2018, as she was taking on the role of Gypsy Rose Blanchard in the Hulu miniseries The Act.
The series is based on the true-crime story of Dee Dee Blanchard and her daughter, Gypsy, and it seems Joey really embodied Gypsy’s character by shaving her hair off, which she showed off on a Red Carpet back in 2018.
As she started filming for the Netflix sequel not long after, in Summer 2019, as you can imagine, her hair was still pretty short compared to her usual Elle Evans locks.

AT MIDNIGHT ELLE EVANS IS BACK IN ACTION!!! I feel so lucky to have been able to play this character again. The amount of pride and excitement I feel towards #TheKissingBooth2 is out of this world. Our sequel makes my heart smile and I can’t wait for you to see it. Thank you for being on this journey with us
This meant that to get back into character, Joey wore a wig to shoot scenes, as her real hair was super pixie-esque back then.
A whole year since filming, Joey’s real hair has definitely grown out back to the full-length we’re used to seeing as she’s showed off her long locks on Instagram.
She also showed fans a glimpse of the process she went through behind-the-scenes, to achieve her ultimate Elle hair and makeup, and fans were super impressed with the transformation!
