Joyce Dewitt's Hair on Three's Company

I was just wondering if anyone on here happened to know... Joyce Dewitt from Three's Company (I know, I know, that was like 35 years ago, right? ;)), what is her natural hair texture? The first season she had it straight, the second and third it was curly and I LOVED her cut by the way, and the fourth it got a lot thinner and straighter again.

I'm guessing it's straight, since seeing other non Three's Company pics of her, I see no curls, but I wasn't sure.

And if it ISN'T natural, I want to know how she did it! It was quite lush. =) I just have a soft spot for those kinds of haircuts, especially with the curly bangs. I see something similar in some 4A cuts too, not like a fro, but... it has a roundishness to it, I guess. Don't know how else to describe it.

For those of you who never watched the show, I couldn't find any high-quality pics of her curly hair, but here is the best I could get:

    I don't know for sure, and the show is much older than me, but from watching TV Guide reruns I always thought it was naturally straight and they curled it.
    I like it though!

    I'm guessing it was naturally straight and the curly is a perm...because when it was straight, it was reaaaaaally straight.

    I know this is an old thread, but it's funny because I was Googling trying to find out the same thing. I grew up watching that show too. According to Wikipedia she's half Italian, not that that means anything, but I know I got my curls from the Italian side of the family. A lot of women still straighten their hair, so who knows. She also appears to have had her nose rather dramatically bobbed, so it's clear she's not averse to changing her natural appearance.

    What I wonder is, how did Suzanne Somers come up with that idiotic side ponytail?

    I just snorted at work! Too funny.

    It was a perm. All three of her hairstyles were on trend for the years she wore them - the Dorothy Hamill, the floofy fro perm and the shaggy bob. Perms were hugely popular in the late 70s and 80s.
