What curl type is Keri Russell?

starcrosserstarcrosser Posts: 183Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
I'm still not very good at identifying the different types of curls yet. Just curious what you think her natural texture is. Also any guesses on how she styles it (or have any of you perhaps read articles where she talked about her routine)?

When it was longer, it seemed like loose waves. But I saw a recent magazine cover (Lucky) where it seemed like bigger curls now that it's shorter. Love her hair!
3A curls, fine texture, thin (it's always been that way). A few inches past shoulder length and would like it to grow very long.

Latest routine:
Sulfate-free shampoo: Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, Elucence, Bedhead Superstar
Conditioner: Jessicurl Too Shea conditioner, DermOrganic Masque, Redken All Soft
Style: DermOrganic Argan Oil Treatment/Serum, Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in, Kerastase Nectar Thermique, Oyin Hair Dew

    I'm PRETTY sure this is her natural texture:

    Which I think would be a 3A/B. To me, anyways. The styling just leaves a little bit to be desired, IMO.

    Also here is a picture of the cover I'm talking about. You can't see it very well, unfortunately. (edited, the linked photo is no longer there) EDIT: I originally linked a photo that automatically shows the CURRENT Allure cover. When I linked it, it was Keri Russel. Then it changed to Rosario Dawson. Now it's someone else. I apologize for the confusion this has caused!

    Oh really? I think it's super pretty. :)
    It's not very defined, I suppose, but I like how it seems so carefree and romantic.

    lol, I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to frizz and flyaways... I'm working on it, and I'm a bit more tolerant of them now but they tend to bug me >.<

    I think the pics where her pattern is looser might be after blow drying/using curling irons to change the curls. Could be wrong though.

    Oh darn! I hate when I see a great curly look, but it takes a lot of heat styling and work to achieve. Thanks for the replies though. :)

    I always thought her curls in Felicity were natural and pretty tight. I would agree 3b/c.

    Haven't seen her curls for years though. Unless pregnancy and child birth changed her curl pattern (drastically) I just assumed she had become a serial straightener....unfortunately.
  • mrl234mrl234 Posts: 548Registered Users
    Most pictures of her look like 3b to me. Her wavy look is very pretty, too, but I don't think that's her natural texture.

    I think she leans more toward 3c naturally and 3b/c with styling and a good hair cut. Her hair is nowhere near a 3a or 2 unless it has changed drastically over the years.

    She's a 3b/c when it's natural; her hair is gorgeous and I wish that she'll stop straightening it. She alters her curls, that is why her hair looks different nowadays, but you can still see what her natural texture is because her roots are still very curly when everything else is straight. She probably got a relaxer.

    I think she's near a 3A now. I've been watching all the seasons of Felicity lately, and when the show first started she had really big beautiful tight curly hair, but after she cut off all of her hair in season two, her curlpattern changed a lot.

    I'm now at season four, and her curls are something between 3A and 3B, my hair looks exactly like hers, and to be honest, my hair looked exactly like hers in the picture above when i was little.
    But after several weird haircuts and different colours, my curlpattern changed too over the years.

    Apparently your whole body gets renewed every 7 years.
    So it takes your body 7 years to change every cell, just as well as your hair i guess.

    Her curls got a lot looser IMO and i love her hair no matter what it looks like, but i agree with helloyellowbird, she has to stop straightening her hair! I think it makes her look too serious and a lot older than she really is..

    I think it's the styling methods used and her haircut. Before her big chop, she had a bad hair cut. She always had slightly frizzy, pyramid hair. Once her hair began to grow out, it looked as if she had a cut that worked with her curls and she used better products.

    Yellowbird -- I don't think she has a relaxer because many of the pics of her when she is just about town show her with curly hair pulled back. I think she just has great stylists who are pros at making her hair look naturally straight.

    Um am I looking at the wrong photo? This isn't Keri Russell. That's Rosario Dawson.

    You probably want to start a new thread on Rosario Dawson. She has medium fine, 2b waves. Her hair tends to be straight when cut very short and has big waves and sometimes loose curls the longer it gets. (Think Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy's Christina) without the hair being coarse and as plenty.)

    I think you're right, my hair used to be as tightly curled as Keri's when i was younger but after years of brushing, hairdye and cutting my hair in different styles, it changed a lot. It has changed a lot after i went CG too, my curls are finally starting to come back.
    It defenitely looks like she had started the CG method too, her hair looks a lot more shiny and healthy with much less frizz.
    It's the volume that's been reduced after her big chop.
    But her hair looks a lot more healthy now than it did in season one for instance. :)

    Hopefully she'll start wearing her curls more often again, she's an amazing actress with a great personality and a beautiful complexion, it's a shame the stylist (or maybe just she) is trying to change that.

    She had such beautiful curls! I loved them when she was on Felicity and before. It makes me sad to see her curls all wilted. I don't like her new look. :-(

  • multicultcurlymulticultcurly Posts: 5,136Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    I agree w/ Shycurl. Too straight hair makes her look odd and old (not in a good way). It's her face shape. She doesn't have the right one for super straight hair. I can't remember where I read it, but she said herself that she doesn't look good with really straight hair. It was probably her agent's idea to distance her from Felicity and be seen as more of a grown-up actress instead of a teen star.

    Pretty interesting - I just happened to catch an episode of "Married with Children" this morning with Kerri Russell on it. Her hair was very long, very curly, and quite frizzy. However, I liked it. I had very long hair for awhile, then I had it cut. I am growing it back again. I just need to keep after those ends of my hair so they don't look ragged. I wonder what types of products Kerri Russell uses on her hair.
    3A. I like Wella Kolestral. I also like a lot of products made by Nexxus.

    This is a very pretty picture of Keri Russell. Her hair is gorgeous. I still don't understand what the big hoopla was over cutting her hair cut for Felicity. I still thought it was very cute, but everyone always seems to go ga-ga over long hair.

    You probably want to start a new thread on Rosario Dawson. She has medium fine, 2b waves. Her hair tends to be straight when cut very short and has big waves and sometimes loose curls the longer it gets. (Think Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy's Christina) without the hair being coarse and as plenty.)

    I'm sorry, but that cover is not Rosario Dawson. This is: www.imdb.com/media/rm1190171904/nm0206257 You can see many more pictures of her and her hair at this same site - none of them are very curly. About the curliest, worn natural on the very last page of her pictures, looks to be 2c/3a at most.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    Yes yes, I know. I linked the photo when it WAS Rosario Dawson. Apparently Allure just copies over the photo with the same file name and it shows the current issue. Right click - properties and you will see what I mean. I updated the thread when I realized my mistake.

    Keri Russell has an amzing head of curls. I was disappointed when she cut them off, her hair looks better long.

    WOW!!! Never thought I'd find a celeb hair twin! My curl texture/formation is identical to this when I'm not forcing my hair into clumping more, LOL. But I am very envious of her root curl and volume. Nicole Kidman also used to have a beautiful head of natural 3B curls. *sigh* Hollywood... :evil:
