Guess who #65

By spcnet.tv on May 31st, 2010 | Korean Entertainment, newsfeed

Guess who this female star is, posing together with the staff at the hair salon where she had her hair done?

Hint: A veteran star.

She is none other than diva Lee Hyori!

The photo (not dated) was taken when she had her hair extensions done at the Zimo Hair Salon.

Something different about her in the photo? I guess, we are too used to seeing Lee Hyori in her usual hairstyle.
