January Jones might have been channeling David Bowie at the SAG Awards Sunday night with her pompadour, but considering she’s a risk taker when it comes to her hair, we can’t exactly say we’re shocked.

After all, this is the same woman who has tried almost as many mane colors as Katy Perry, including blonde, brunette, red and even pink highlights. But she admits hitting the hair dye bottle so often has caused some major damage to her tresses.

“I have been every color and now my hair is falling out in clumps,” the star tells Grazia Daily. “I’m going to have to shave it off and wear a wig.”

So we won’t be surprised if Jones sticks with platinum for now — or at least until her hair recovers. (And no, not because blondes have more fun.) She prefers her bright blonde hue for a more sentimental reason: “My son recognizes me in photos when I am blonde. He says ‘mama.'”

And it isn’t just baby Xander who has a tough time putting a name to a face when Jones isn’t rocking Betty Draper’s signature shade: Other people close to her had no idea who she was when she first went dark brown. “I was suddenly invisible,” she says. “Not just as a celebrity, but to my friends and family. I was like, ‘Come on you guys, it’s me!'” Tell us: Which hair color do you prefer on Jones?
