Sia, is that you?

The “Never Give Up” singer, 42, stepped out without her iconic wig at Netflix‘s Ozark Tastemakers Event in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

She wore a simple black outfit with her natural blonde hair in loose waves as she mingled with Jason Bateman, her look in far contrast to her go-to black and blonde blunt bob.

It’s become rare for the Australian singer to be in public without a wig on, though she was seen looking fresh-faced while arriving at LAX back in 2017. Most recently, she appeared on her makeup artist’s Instagram last October with just a green face mask on.

In 2016, she accidentally gave fans a view of her face during a performance in Colorado when a gust of wind blew her wig back.

That same year, Sia participated in a “Carpool Karaoke” segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden and told the host why she’s made shielding her eyes part of her routine.

“I was a singer for 10 or 11 years to mediocre success,” she said. “I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up, and I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some way. I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery.

Continued the star, “I was like, ‘There’s pictures on Instagram of everyone at the dentist.’ ”

A year prior, she told Ellen DeGeneres, 60, in 2015 that she covers her face to preserve her anonymity. “Well, it’s so that I can go to Target and buy a hose if I want to. Or if I’m in need of a restroom and I can’t find one, I could go by the side of the road,” Sia explained.

She added, “And nobody would be following me with a camera trying to get ‘the shot.’ “
