Joanna has a short, dark hairdo. After (we think) she has been made into a robot, her hair has grown 12 inches. Nicole Kidman is sporting her own hair. It should've been styled as a wig, not as a combed back style which is not available as a wig. The final scene shows Joanna with the short, dark hairdo again.
