Warning: Minor spoilers ahead for “Stranger Things” season two.

The second season of “Stranger Things” is streaming now on Netflix, and the cast and creators recently celebrated the premiere in Los Angeles. While the adventurous characters are often dirtied up from exploring the Upside Down or dressed up in 80s style costumes, the cast cleans up nicely on the red carpet.

Keep reading to see what the main characters of “Stranger Things” look like in real life.

Jane (best known as Eleven) is the star of the series with her telekinetic/psychic powers and a tragic backstory.

Netflix
By season two, her shaved hair has grown out into curly locks.

In real life, 13-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown often wears her hair more straight.

Brown did shave her head for season one, and has grown it out naturally.

Mike Wheeler is arguably the leader of his friend group (which they call the 'party' due to their Dungeons and Dragons obsession).

Netflix
Mike spends season two feeling angst over Eleven's disappearance.

Mike is played by Finn Wolfhard. The 14-year-old's hair is much curlier in real life.

Wolfhard has also already grown up a bit since season two's filming.

Will Byers is a key character on both seasons, since his connection to the Upside Down is triggering new problems in Hawkins.

Will is the a more timid member of the party.

Noah Schnapp, 13, doesn't rock a bowl cut in real life

Schnapp is one of the standout actors on season two.

Lucas is the party member with the most confidence and focus on whatever mission is in front of them.

Netflix
Lucas spends most of season two trying to bring a new girl into the party.

Lucas is played by 16-year-old Caleb McLaughlin.

McLaughlin often dresses in sharp suits on the red carpet.

Dustin is usually the mediator of the party and often knows all the important Dungeons and Dragons lore as it relates to the Upside Down.

Netflix
Dustin gets a new 'pet' on the second season of 'Stranger Things.'

Gaten Matarazzo, now 15 years old, doesn't love hats like his character Dustin and sports a shorter hair cut.

Matarazzo also has cleidocranial dysplasia, just like Dustin.

A newcomer this season is Max. Lucas and Dustin want her to join the party and a small love triangle ensues.

Netflix
Max is highly sceptical of the boys.

15-year-old Sadie Sink joined the cast of kids this season to play Max.

Sink has great chemistry with the rest of the cast this season.

Max's brother Billy is a new bully at Hawkins High School.

Netflix
Billy rocks a mullet and tight jeans all season long.

Billy is played by Dacre Montgomery, who ditches the mullet in real life but keeps the open-shirt style his character is fond of.

Montgomery is the only Australian cast member.

Steve is back with better hair than ever (and we can't forget the iconic baseball bat).

Netflix
Steve has that tousled look nailed down.

Joe Keery sports a Steve-esque hairdo between seasons.

Fans think he resembles actor Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio on 'Parks and Recreation.'

Nancy Wheeler is Mike's strong-willed older sister who was dating Steve by the end of the first season.

Netflix
Nancy starts season two plagued with guilt over her friend Barb's death.

Natalia Dyer debuted a new blonde look on the red carpet premiere for 'Stranger Things 2.'

Dyer also just got bangs, which could mean there's fringe in Nancy's future.

Last but not least, Joyce Byers is Will's anxiety-prone mother who went to extreme lengths on season one in order to get her boy back.

Netflix
Joyce was frantic and panicking for most of the first season.

Winona Ryder, an '80s and '90s icon in her own right, bears little resemblance to her frenzied character.

Ryder's performance throughout 'Stranger Things' always wows.
