Auf Wiedersehen to blonde, and guten Tag to brunette! 

Heidi Klum took it back to her dusky days this week, posting a retro photo of herself as a brunette 13-year-old to her Instagram account. 

Before her rise to fame as a blonde supermodel and Project Runway host, the German-born star, now 40, was a typical '80s teen. In the vintage mid-'80s image, Klum's locks are a shade of medium brown and permed with a set of cropped bangs.
