Hold On to Your Jaw, Because This Is What OITNB’s “Skinhead” Helen Really Looks Like

By now, most Orange Is the New Black fans know just how different the cast looks outside of their Litchfield jumpsuits, but few of the makeunders are as jaw-dropping as the one Francesca Curran agreed to while playing “Skinhead” Helen. With her shaved head and striking face and neck tattoos, Helen has always been one of the most recognizable characters on the show, despite not being one of the leads. In the show’s fifth season, however, the actress gets way more screentime than she has in past seasons, so it made us wonder: what does she look like outside of her OITNB costume?

Spoiler alert: SHE’S FREAKIN’ GORGEOUS.

Luckily Francesca’s Instagram account is a veritable treasure trove of shocking before-and-after shots chronicling her transformation into the white supremacist character. Although she fully committed and shaved off all of her hair, she’s not afraid to rock some pretty glam wigs during her downtime from filming.

While speaking with Business Insider, Francesca revealed that despite her character’s intimidating look, she’s actually “girly” at heart. “In real life, I’m so feminine. I’m so girly. I love my makeup, I love my jewelry and all that,” she said. “So to really be stripped of all that . . . The first time I was like, okay, wow. I found myself in the mirror and was like, this is a striking . . . what a difference.”

That’s not to say she isn’t tough, though. During a recent chat with POPSUGAR, she told us that she was thrilled to be doing her own stunts this season. “We did combat training, and it was just the craziest experience because we have this amazing guy, Greg, and we have a whole team of guys that come in and show us how to do these crazy flips and wall kicks and some of the stuff we do, we’ll get professional stunt people in,” she explained. “But the fun part for me this season was while some of the other girls were having stunt people do it, they, for some reason, had a crazy sense of faith in me. And they were like, ‘Hey, do you think you can handle this?’ And being the crazy person that I am, I was like, ‘Absolutely.'”

At least she didn’t have to worry about her hair getting snagged on anything during training, right? Francesca has also shared a few peeks at what her normal, natural hair looks like when the show goes on hiatus and she has the chance to grow some of it back.

Her transformation even gives America’s Next Top Model a run for its money (and that’s a show that once attempted a “beard weave,” so that’s really saying something).

Hey World, It’s Time For You to Stop Pronouncing “Bey” Incorrectly

Beyoncé has become a force to be reckoned with since strutting her way into the music scene back in 1997 with Destiny’s Child. The Lemonade diva has more than earned her title as “Queen Bey” over the last two decades, but one thing that seems to keep some people up at night (yes, really!) is whether or not you pronounce her royal highness’s name as “Queen Bee” or “Queen Bay.”

If you’re part of the Beyhive, then you should already know the answer, so feel free to use this for future reference when someone dares to mispronounce the queen’s title, but allow us finally put this – admittedly silly – debate to rest. The correct pronunciation of “Queen Bey” is Queen Bee. Like queen of the bees. Like the bees you embarrassingly run from in the Summer. Like bees who are unfortunately dying at an alarming rate.

While there still are some “bay-sayers” out there who swear it makes more sense to pronounce it as “Queen Bay” because “Bey” looks like it could rhyme with “Hey,” that argument doesn’t hold up when you think about the fact that Beyoncé’s first name isn’t phonetically pronounced as “Hayoncé”.

If that’s not convincing enough for you, then take the name of Beyoncé’s ever-loyal fan base into consideration. The Beyhive is a name Beyoncé gave her fans (or stans) who support her endlessly. In 2012, Bey (pronounced BEE) issued out a “Beyhive lesson” on her official website to help educate us all on a few key terms we should know about her fandom:

As you can see, the key words listed above (buzz, pollen, sting) are all related to bees, thus further proving that Queen Bey is NOT pronounced as Queen Bay. Got it? Good. Carry on.
