In the bare-faced pic, the Orange Is the New Black star, 32, has her naturally curly dark tresses pulled back into a ponytail, and wears a simple black bra and slip. "The other day after I took out my braids before we put them back in. I keep it natural underneath," she shared in the accompanying caption. "#NaturalHair #NoFilter #NoMakeup #JustMe."

Cox went on to explain that both looks — ultra glam and makeup-free — are fierce. "I love fake hair. It’s one of the great joys of my life. As an actress and a woman I love being able to transform, to switch up my look when I want to with wigs, weaves and bundles a plenty," she wrote. "I love this too. It’s about choices and options.”

The Freak Show actress also majorly switched up her hair and makeup for Fox's upcoming remake of the 1975 cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show, in which she plays Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As part of the role, Cox wears a bright red pixie-cut wig and intense cat-eye makeup, along with spider-themed tights and a corset.

Posting a picture of herself in her getup for the flick, Cox referenced a line from the show. "'Give yourself over to absolute pleasure,'" she captioned the still. "Get ready to do the time warp again. #RHPS."
