Emmy Rossum has curly hair now too, but hers is natural and not a perm


A post shared by Emmy Rossum (@emmy) on

Perms are coming back as part of the 90s resurgence. When it comes to fashion, I’m all for 90s style like combat boots, chokers, track pants and (some) lingerie as outerwear. Those were my teen years and I have a lot of nostalgia for that era. The hair, however, is not my favorite. I had long blonde permed hair and while it was cute at the time I now prefer a blowout or controlled curls achieved with a curling iron.

We’ve seen celebrities like Emma Stone, Olivia Munn, Jamie King and Lola Kirke all opting for perms. As Corey put it recently, perms seem like a throwback because they are. They haven’t really evolved with the times like so many other beauty treatments. Emmy Rossum, one of my favorite celebrities, has similarly been sporting curls. Hers are natural though. She posted the image below along with a message about her hair journey.

Every day is another journey with this hair.

Emmy also had an Instagram story about the products that she uses, and US has the details. She uses Devacurl shampoo, conditioner, gel and cream along with a diffuser while blowdrying her hair upside down.

I had no idea that Emmy had naturally curly hair! This is absolutely beautiful and she looks lovely. Whenever I think of naturally curly 90s hair, I remember Amy Irving and how amazing her hair was/is. Last night I saw Unsane (it was entertaining and I would recommend it, but it had its flaws) and I just realized that Irving is in that movie! She played Claire Foy’s mom and she was so good in it. She’s 64 now and still has her gorgeous natural curls.

Here’s Irving in 1989 with then husband Steven Spielberg:

And last year, with her current (third) husband, Kenneth Bowser.

Getting back to Emmy, she’s been seen out with her naturally curly hair and it looks both effortless and pretty. I’m on board for the natural curls, I just don’t see the need for a perm. Whenever I want curls I opt for heat, not chemical, damage. (I asked my hairdresser to try to bring out my natural waves recently, but my hair isn’t as curly as Emmy’s and I didn’t like the results. I wish my hair was this versatile.)

Her dog is so cute!

    It’s very cute on her. Honestly, if you have naturally wavy or curly hair, it’s easy enough to do with some rollers/curlers and hair spray. You just have to be willing to wake up early and put the time into sitting around with them in your hair for 1-2 hours. (Or if you’re really dedicated, overnight.)

    • Anna says:

      Her hair is often wavy/curly on Shameless so I’m not sure why this is so surprising lol
      And it’s not that simple to do curly hair btw unless you’re just referencing white people curly hair. I’m biracial (black and white) and my hair would never look even close to being presentable with just “hairspray”. I wash my hair once a week and the whole routine of washing my hair and styling takes 3-4 hours. Plus I need to blow dry it or it would still be wet even 24 hours later.

      I love curly hair so I’m glad it’s seen as “in style” now but I can already tell white women or white passing women are going to get praised for it while black women who wear their hair naturally will still be losing jobs because of it.

      • OriginalLala says:

        @Veronica It’s not simple to deal with curly hair (even for white girl curls!) I only wash my hair twice a week and after I wash and set my hair, it takes about 8 hours to air dry (I plop my hair overnight) and then I diffuse it in the morning or it would be wet for another 4-6 hours. Plus the time investment in hair treatment to keep curls happy and hydrated is no joke either. My friends always comment that my hair is low-maintenance because I dont straight iron it every day, but it’s pretty high maintenance to keep the curls looking good!

      • Veronica says:

        That’s a fair point. We were discussing Emmy (and myself), so I was primarily thinking of Caucasian hair. There are certainly differences in the way those hair types need treated – and as to how society responds to them. You’re right that I should have taken that into consideration.

        This being said, I should clarify that when I say “easy,” I meant that it doesn’t involve excessive chemical treatment for those of us on the wavy/curly spectrum. Time consuming is a different story. The steps to get that curly hair for me (long haired, Caucasian, naturally wavy) can take a good 3-4 hours, if not more more, if I include the time it takes to wash it and/or wet it. (I also only wash mine once a week – it strips too much of the oil out, otherwise.) I can’t blow dry my hair because it heat damages too easily, so it has to stay tightly wound and allowed to air dry to the right level of damp. Then it can take a good 30-40 minutes to get all of those curlers/foam roads curled in. Then it has to dry and set. If I want to stay more tightly coiled, I’d go for hair spray, but I try to avoid it because it means having to wash my hair again the next day.

        Styling is exhausting. This is why hair is always in a bun. 9_9

      • isabelle says:

        Same Anna, also have biracial mixed chick hair. Truly hair with a mind of its own. Also have what they call low porosity hair which takes most of the day to air-dry. Curlers in my hair, is a haha. They make my hair more fizzy and unnamable. Tried “white girl” curlers and it was a disaster,

      • LizLemonGotMarried (aka The Hufflepuff Liz Lemon) says:

        The whole idea that natural hair can’t be professional drives me nuts. Many ppl on my team are POC and the hairstyles vary based on preference and not one client out of 3700 has ever mentioned the professionalism of my team members’ hair. One leader tried to code it into his language and he ended up promoted to customer. People are assholes (my life’s motto).

      • Ange says:

        My very white dad had a natural afro that would rival most in size and tightness. I got half of that and my hair routine is exactly the same as anyone else’s with difficult hair, time consuming and annoying. I can’t even use curlers! Come on now.

        I do agree though that I certainly don’t have the same societal issues with my hair and wearing it natural.

      • Gia says:

        Ehhh to say that all white people have nice hair when it’s naturally curly is an unfair statement. I am white and have naturally curly hair, it’s also very dry, coarse, frizzy, and is not “presentable.” I can’t wear it to work natural and have to keep it straightened or smoothed out. I have Jewish and Greek/Italian friends with similar problems. They are all white and their hair, like mine, looks crappy in its natural state and has been called ugly/homeless-looking/not presentable. Mine has been called by multiple people constantly since I’ve been a child. I have to get it blown out once a week at a salon so I can wear it to work. Sometimes once every 2 weeks because it doesn’t really get oily and is so dry. So please don’t lump all white people together and say they get a pass for their natural hair because that’s not the case. Also, many different races have different variations of curl and many different races has straight smooth hair, such as Asians and even Native Americans.

    • minx says:

      As someone with stick straight, thin hair, I have always envied curls.

  2. Nancy says:

    I have the curls, but the first thing I do in the morning is plug in my hair straightener.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m getting keratin on Friday and I’m already sad that I’m going to be without my natural hair texture. I love how low-maintenance (and much healthier) my hair is post-keratin treatment but I HATE how flat and pin straight it is for the first couple months.

      • Nancy says:

        No, no. My sister and I had keratin treatments and our hair was great for months. I recommend the Brazilian Blowout (totally straight). I think you will be happy. Do you have lots of hair? We (twin) do and the treatment leaves your hair healthy and easier to work with. It’s all good Kit Kat!

      • HelloSunshine says:

        How does the Keratin work as far as your curl coming back? I’ve considered it just for the ease. I adore my curls but if I want to look put together, I HAVE to shower and product and it’s kind of a hassle with a toddler hanging off your leg lol

      • Imqrious2 says:

        I did the Brazilian Blowout when I had long hair, and I LOVED it! Sadly, I only did it once, as I couldn’t take the fumes/ chemicals. My hair is naturally thick and wavy, and blow drying it straight would take an hour, at least. After the B.B., I just brushed my hair and let it dry naturally. It was GORGEOUS for 4-5 months though.

        I tried the Keratin, and while it made my hair shinier, it didn’t work anywhere near as well as the B.B. or straighten it. I still had to blow dry. It did cut the time In half though, so there is that.

      • Kitten says:

        I have a decent amount of hair but it’s about medium-thickness and it tapers at the end :/
        I had keratin done last July and I loved it for the humid summers we have here in Boston, but my hair was brown with light brown and blonde streaks and MUCH healthier then. Now it’s blonde and I just worry about how much more limp it will look with the keratin now that it is drier and more damaged.

        My hair’s natural texture is curly but with a LOT Of body. It’s that natural volume that makes me look like I have more hair than I do….kinda sad to lose it. But I know the keratin will help with the dryness/frizziness so I feel like I have to…

        Blah, blah, blah…hair stuff.
        Love you, Nancy 😉

        ETA: HelloSunshine- I would say that my natural hair texture started coming back after 6 months or so. The underneath is still pretty straight-ish but the top layers have returned to my normal texture.
        So basically I would say you would have smooth, straight hair for 5-6 months before it BEGINS to return then by 8 or 9 months it’s back. That being said, it probably depends on your existing curl definition. If you have really tight coils I would imagine it wouldn’t last as long as it did for me.

      • Nancy says:

        Love you more Kitten! You seem hesitant about the treatment. Anyone with thick curly or wavy hair knows your dilemma. Maybe try a deep conditioning to get your hair back to the roots, ha! Those conditionings are expensive, but it may enable you to have a healthier head of hair to do treatment on for the summer. Whatever you decide, I’m sure you will look gorge!! *Not pushing, but I love the Brazilian Blowout. My hair is pretty long and blonde, but thick, which I’m told is not that common for blondes. Anyway, I felt I looked my best and with three youngins, I needed the lift! Oh such problems!!*

      • LILAG says:

        Girls, WHAT is a Brazilian Blowout?? I’m Brazilian and I never heard of it! I love how those “something from somewhere” are so rarely known in said country or even actually come from them haha

      • Nancy says:

        It was originated in Brazil! In the most basic of terms, your curly or frizzy hair is chemically treated with a straightening iron and the results are fabulous, smooth, silky and STRAIGHT!….although reviews are mixed. I love it.

      • LILAG says:

        Ooh right. I do a treatment just like that on my roots too! I have big waves that kind of curl sometimes but my roots – especially at the front – are really difficult and with no defined texture. I don’t go for straight straight just make them less rebellious. It goes away in 4-6 months so it’s very light.
        But this treatment has a different name here. Well, I suppose it would be really weird to call something “brazilian” when it’s already being done in Brazil hahah

  3. isabelle says:

    On Shameless you can tell she has curly hair because it she keeps some wave in it. Had no idea it was curly curly.. Love the new trend of natural curls now being “freed”. Seems curly hait is being more embraced. Began my curly hair journey about a month ago and it has been fun trying out new ways of developing and keeping the curl in. Devacurl products are a disaster in my hair. Weighs it down and flattens my wave. The search for the holy grail products is harder than the actual transition to natural curls.

    • Anna says:

      I hate deva curl products!!! They’re so expensive for not a lot of product and after I use it I always feel like I need to wash my hair again. It leaves a greasy heavy coating.
      I started my natural hair journey 4 years ago and I’m still trying to find the perfect combo for my hair. Right now I’m usung the olive oil eco styler and the garnier butter cream leave in. I’ve tried just about every product at the black hair store and most of them don’t work or they’re too pricey

      • Caseymams says:

        I have fairly curly hair but it feels untamable! The ONLY product that consistently works for me is Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls. Smells a little soapy but I don’t mind the scent since it smells fresh. The trick for me is to not touch my hair whatsoever while it’s drying.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’m a 3A/3B. I used to horde this product from garnier called Fiber Putty. It looked like green goo. My cuticle can be easily ruffed up, turning my curls from shiny to frizz. The Fiber Putty sealed it, but when it dried it wasn’t stiff or crunchy. So soft, shiny hair was the result.

        Then they took my beloved fiber putty and changed the name and fragrance to make it for guys with spiky hair. Then they discontinued it. I found it on Amazon for $60 for a tub (when it sold at retail for $3). Damn you, Garnier!!!!! 🙁

  4. LadyMTL says:

    Man, I wish my curls were as nice as hers! I have wavy – curly hair (I’d be considered type 2C) and though I also have tried Devacurl products, my hair can often give me trouble…frizzy but fine, doesn’t curl from the root, etc.

    I also get discouraged when I do decide to straighten it, and most people will give me tons and tons of compliments about how amazing it looks. Like, what’s wrong with my normal curls? LOL.

  5. Tan says:

    Right …

    I think she looks stunning with straightened hair in the pictures below

  6. Rose says:

    Yikes it look awful to be honest.. like really bad.

    • Slowsnow says:

      @Rose and @Tan
      Wow. That’s so incredibly harsh and in my opinion so conservative in terms of aesthetics.

      • Rose says:

        lol ok ? Her her looks awful is all I said.
        You can tell me it looks good ?

      • isabelle says:

        Rose her hair looks good, want to post pics of yours? These type of posts should always be followed with posters own pics of their own amazing awesome perfect hair and face.

    • Annika says:

      Thanks, because that’s exactly what mine looks like.
      Although mine is less frizzy *hair flip*

      • Kitten says:

        Her hair looks BEAUTIFUL. Honestly, just gorgeous. Most people (except Rose, I guess) would KILL for that kind of curl.

    • Anna says:

      I don’t think it’s awful but it’s a little dead, she needs a trim

      • Carey says:

        More like a hot oil treatment. Her hair is very dry. The shape of the curls is gorgeous but she needs to moisturize better.

    • Rose says:

      A quick note to say I need to change my username after many years of being Rose as it appears there is another Rose who says mean things! This Rose has been rocking curly natural hair my whole life because mine is so thin it just looks dreadful straightened.

    • gatorbait says:

      Jeeze. My hair looks just like her. We can’t all have straight or beachy waves like we’re in the movies.

    • Abby says:

      It’s good to know what people really think about curly hair like mine.

      • Slowsnow says:

        I would LOVE to have that hair. @Rose is just jelly.

      • gatorbait says:

        Right. I always wondered and magically made it through childhood with no teasing (but never feeling I fit in with the flat iron looks of the early 2000’s when I graduated). My bestie had hair like mine and straightened it daily and if it rained she would go into the most insane meltdown I’d ever seen for fear someone would see her hair curly. We would have to give her our jackets to cover her head and walk her to her car. Somehow my mom instilled a love in my curls in me despite not instilling one about loving myself. But that’s a story for another day. lol

      • wildflower says:

        Yeah, Abby, that’s exactly how that comment made me feel. I am between a 3A and 3B and have heard those damned comments all my life, that I would look so much better if I straightened my hair. Even my mom makes comments! One time she saw a curly haired toddler girl (so adorable) and said that she was cute now but she would hate that hair when she got older. And this is only hair types we’re talking about… let’s not get started on race, gender identity….Jeez, why can’t different just be beautiful?!?? It is to this girl.

    • Pandy says:

      I;m totally opposite from you! Her straight hair is just boring. It just lies there, being flat. The curls have their own life. Anyone can have straight hair but not everyone is blessed with curls. I am (if you couldn’t tell lol). I’ve had a straightener and blow dry maybe three times in my life – the rest of the time, it’s curls curls curls. When it’s straight I just look at it and think of how dull it is. So, I think she looks great with her curls back. I use deva curl as well. It is SO conditioning!!! Brings all the ringlets out. Love big hair.

    • isabelle says:

      You are hair shaming, not everybody wants valley girl stick straight hair (which most women don’t have btw, they just make it happen).

    • AngelaH says:

      I can honestly say that I love her curls and wish that there was a way for me to achieve that look. I adore it! I was a perming maniac back in the day. A section of my hair just stopped taking the curl so I’ve been scared to try it again and thyroid problems have caused me to lose a lot of my hair so I’m not comfortable trying those chemicals anymore.

      I still feel the same shock and anger that I initially felt when I learned that Black women are discriminated against for wearing their hair curly (or braided or whatever). It is absolutely disgusting. I LOVE curls. I love curls of all types and I have always been jealous of the variety of curls I see on black women. I am so sorry that this is an issue and I can’t imagine having every single aspect of my appearance judged.

      To everyone with curls, I’m super jealous. I love all curls. I love defined curls. I love frizzy crazy curls. I love waves. I have been obsessed with curls since I was a kid. If you are ever feeling down about your curls, reach out to me. I will gush over them and it will be completely sincere.

      I saw in a hair magazine years ago where they permed someone’s hair with pipe cleaners. That was the perm of my dreams!

      Sorry for writing a book, but I love curly hair.

    • shockedandappalled says:

      Rose is giving us first hand evidence as to what all curly haired women know. That much of society prefers straight or lightly wavy textures.

      Luckily hair preference just like preferences for certain body types/size, etc. Evidence shows preferences are very connected to evolving societal definitions of attractiveness (which are also often racist btw). This means we can train ourselves to view a broader spectrum of looks attractive.

      Try expanding your view, Rose. You may end up a happier person, and certainly a person who hurts others less. Because make no mistake, what you wrote is mean and hurtful.

  7. Shiv says:

    A journey with my hair….. really?? Good God have you nothing else to think about woman….

    • gatorbait says:

      That’s what people are calling the process of finding products to define their curls. Go to the Naturally Curly blog and read it. She didn’t invent the phrase and I’m sure she’s got more going on than her hair. I’m in her boat though. I have curly hair and it is difficult to make it look good all the time. No hate.

    • Abby says:

      You must not have curly hair. It is so hard to find the right combo of products, hair cuts, styling and techniques to get your curls to look good and be healthy. It took me 15 years of curls to finally figure it out.

    • Heather H says:

      Says the person without curly hair… yes it is a journey. imagine waking up every day not knowing if your hair will look presentable, be a crazy mess or look fantastic. every damn day.. and then just when you think you have it figured out it changes and then you have to figure out a new routine and set of products. never ending and yes a journey.

      • gatorbait says:

        Mine changed when my son was born. I had Shirley Temple ringlets when I was young up until 21 when my son came. Now it’s Shirley Temple on the bottom and some random wave nonsense on top. lol This person clearly has it easy with her hair. I must admit I’d be jealous if I didn’t love my damn curls so much.

      • wildflower says:

        It is indeed a journey and you are right that every day is different! Even changes in the day can change your hair (as you clearly know ; ) It is hard to leave your house looking one way and show up to work looking completely different because there is humidity in the air. I see nothing shallow or self absorbed in what Emmy is saying because some of us get it completely.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      My parents have straight hair and mine is super curly. As a kid, my mom took me to soooooo many places to get my hair done, but in an area where everyone else had straight hair, people just didn’t know what to do with it, even highly paid professionals! YES, it is a freaking journey!

      Additionally, not all curls are the same. I kept reading articles telling me to scrunch my hair, and that made it super frizzy and ruined the curl structure.

      I am so happy that there are resources available now that address the variety of needs on the curl spectrum.

    • Veronica says:

      Honestly…if you have wavy or curly hair, it can be. The type of products you use make a big difference as to how well controlled the frizzing and tangling can be. I imagine it’s even tougher for non-white women with more tightly coiled, more fragile hair types.

    • Pandy says:

      Have to agree with above posters. After a side journey due to menopause and my hair greying, I’m finally getting back to what my curls used to look like. They’ve been doing their own thing for a few years now. I was a bit resigned to not having their glory days anymore … but i think they are coming back. And every time you find something that works, which takes AGES and $$$$, they discontinue it. Argh!!!

    • Moneypenny424 says:

      Oh, its a journey all right. I know what works well for my hair. I’ve tried that on my daughter and nope, it isn’t right for her curly hair. I guess her journey is beginning :).

    • Shiv says:

      Apologies..;…On reading the replies to my comments – I take it back. I have poker straight hair so obviously I haven’t a clue what you curly haired women have to go through! I do love curly hair tho…. but obviously it comes with it own set of rules!!

  8. LInabear says:

    Emmy is so stunning, sigh. Out of all the starlets in Hollywood I think she may be the most beautiful.

  9. Slowsnow says:

    My daughter has hair like hers and I love it. In her teens she straightened it and it drove me crazy as mine has messy waves, in between curls and straight fizzy hair.

    Emmy R. looks younger, prettier and more original with her beautifully shaped curls. If I had hair like that, I’d never straighten it.

  10. DC cliche says:

    Her hair was so curly and kicky in “Genius” the Disney channel movie I loved as a kid.

  11. Spring says:

    I always loved Amy Irving’s hair, and Emmy’s is just gorgeous. I can’t fathom having such a natural abundance of thick, beautiful curls — or lush eyebrows, for that matter.

  12. Annika says:

    I have the same kind of curl as Emmy, as well as volume & thickness.
    I hated my hair as a teen but grew to appreciate it as I grew older.
    I NEVER ever ever straighten it either. I don’t want to end up with hair like Nicole Kidman.
    My own grandmother used to try to get me to have it permanently straightened. Isn’t that nuts?
    If my hubby grew his hair out it would look just like mine. So we knew if we had kids they’d have curly hair…. my son inherited my strawberry blonde curls & my daughter has daddy’s black curly hair.
    Sorry not sorry grandma but we’re the curl family & we like it that way!

  13. Kitten says:

    I know she can be grating but I find her so naturally beautiful.

  14. Newyorking says:

    I hate Devacurl products. Not for my hair. Feel very crisp and like I have to rely so much on a process to get the perfect look. Mine are curly but not so curly, a bit flat, wavy and curly in different parts.

    • gatorbait says:

      Mine is a 2C on top and a 3A-B on the bottom. I was going to try Devacurl but I keep reading negative comments on here about them. What do you use?

  15. larry says:

    Curly/Straight she good looking either way to me:)

  16. Milavanilla says:

    I’m all for celebrating one’s natural hair. She looks fantastic… So happy curls are back. I’m so over this flat ironed boring look some people still are so clinging to… (looking at you, Goop, Aniston…)

    • Wiffie says:

      That’s Goop and Aniston’s natural hair. Some people “cling” to their low effort pin straight hair, because two minutes to flat iron the ends in the same direction as the rest is easier than an hour plus to run a curling iron through, only to have it be straight when you go outside anyway.

      How about we just let people do what they wish with the hair with which they were born? Curls, straight, bleach, keratin, wigs, weave, whatever. Let it be.

    • Milavanilla says:

      I’ve straightened my hair for so many years only to realize after a buzz cut, due to a scalp burning chemical straightening procedure, that wearing it natural looked so much better and healthier.
      I’m more interested in why we, as women, are more inclined to feel unsatisfied with what nature’s given us. Answers, in my view, are often related to patriarchy and/or white supremacy.

      What’s the percentage of men who spend so much emotional energy, money and time worrying about their effing hair?

      Plus, curls in a white girl are still seen as “not so professional looking” depending on the social context, so imagine what a black chick must feel like for obvious historical reasons…

  17. Ayala says:

    Well she’s Jewish, a lot of us have curly hair. i think she look great.

  18. OriginalLala says:

    I am happy to see more and more people embracing their textured hair – I am a curly girl and thankfully I work in a field where my big curls are not seen negatively, but I have lawyer friends who feel they need to straighten theirs or they would be subjected to reprimands for looking “unkempt” – which is insane!

    • Milavanilla says:

      Insanely racist quite often in my experience, although I don’t know your friend’s skin color. In Latin America, girls still are encouraged to straighten their hair to fit in with more Caucasian beauty standards.

      • OriginalLala says:

        She is Iranian and I totally agree with what you’re saying about race and ethnicity. For years I straightened my hair because straight hair was seen as good and better than my black Mediterranean curls

      • Milavanilla says:

        I did the Brazilian blow out for over a decade before I was “brave” enough to wear my natural wavy/curly hair. Now I embrace ’em and am proud of my heritage. Go curls! <3

        P.S.: One of the things that moved me about watching the movie Black Panther was seeing so many beautiful ways of celebrating the actors’ different natural textures.

      • Milavanilla says:

        U go, girl, with those luscious Mediterranean locks… My mom’s Spanish and Portuguese roots gave me lots of thick wavy/curly hair and it took me way too long to see the beauty in my heritage cos Brazil was the last country in the Western world to abolish slavery and anything non-straight-Caucasian like is sadly still often seen as “less” in our society. “Unkempt” is another synonym for “not white enough looking” in Brazil. Glad cool folks like Emmy are going full natural, if I had had more influential people wearing their natural hair growing up, I’m sure, I wouldn’t have gone through so many dangerous and expensive hair treatments.

      • Milavanilla says:

        And this whole straight hair obsession where I come from is ridiculous since I have learned while traveling through Europe that lots of Spanish and Italian girls have curly hair, so you realize it’s definitely a racial thing against things too “African looking”, which is heartbreaking 🙁

      • LK says:

        Adriana Lima always straightens her hair… Brazilian blowout. She is mixed.

    My hair is EXACTLY like Emmy’s. I plan to do some serious research on how to care for my curls. They dried out after my son was born and they’ve not been the same since. I want to try Devacurl but have no idea where to start when I look at their site.

  20. Abby says:

    She’s my girl crush, I’ve loved her since Day After Tomorrow/ Phantom of the Opera. I wish she would have been Belle in Beauty and the Beast!

    I think she does have natural curl.

    I have really really curly hair. I battled it forever, finally got control when I was in my mid-20s thanks to a good cut, the right products and sometimes, a good flat iron. Then I discovered the Brazilian Blowout and it changed my life! I get it about once a year. So when it’s worn off after a while, I wear my hair curly. But mostly I wear it straight. It’s been a couple of years now, longer than I realized because both my kids have curly hair and more than one friend has asked me where they got their curls. I’m like really?? Remember me?? But I wear my hair straight most of the time now. My son has a coarser texture like mine, and his hair can get frizzy. My daughter has princess hair–looks like you took a barrel curling iron to her hair, and it never frizzes.

    I regularly use Devacurl gel, but I partially dry my hair instead of following package directions. Works like a charm for me.

  22. Mich says:

    I have straight, very thick hair. Have always wanted curls like that! Gorgeous.

  23. Heather H says:

    I am surprised so many do not know she has naturally curly hair. Does no one remember her from when she started and Phantom of the Opera? It used to be curlier but years of straightening can take its toll.

    Amy Irving’s husband looks like he’s playing Spielberg in a made-for-tv movie.

    Another person who was once my curl icon is SJP. I loved Carrie’s hair in SATC. It reminded me so much of mine. Wild and untamable.

  26. gatorbait says:

    Okay, so I have 2C hair on top and the lower layer is about a 3A or 3B. I currently use Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave in Treatment (kinda leaves my hair heavy and slightly greasy) and Herbal Essesnces Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching gel that I have to scrunch the crunch out of when dry. I always apply to soaking wet hair. I alternate between super cheap (Suave Coconut with vitamin E) and super expensive (Biolage Ultra Hydrasource). So far it’s reasonable. I’d love to bring the Shirley Temple curls back stronger though. I finish my hair with Bed Head Headrush or Olive Oil sheen spray. Does anyone recommend anything or am I on the right track? Also, is it best to brush the tangles out before or after I put in product?

  27. Katherine says:

    Yeah, she’s been wearing them curly a lot recently and she had curly hair in Phantom of the Opera, glad to see her embracing it – I hate mine but wear it curly out of… well, I don’t really know why tbh, it just grows that way and I hate it but still let it exist the way it wants to

  28. Jay says:

    I’ve always found her so pretty, no matter what her hair looks like. I could stare at pictures of her all day!

  29. Lori says:

    Ive always envied curls. My hair is super straight, so boring. Emmy’s curls are my dream curls, I hope she keeps them like this.

      Same. I’ve made peace with it, sort of. And the older I get the thinner it gets, so I don’t let it get beyond a certain length.

  30. A Fan says:

    I have wondered for years why ‘natural’ (anything) isn’t valued or isn’t enough to be considered attractive or desirable – natural hair, natural colour, natural nose, natural tits, natural lips, etc. Who decided that? I blame the 80s.

    [*And the Kardashians.*]

    • Milavanilla says:

      Very interesting… 70s hair was indeed more natural looking texture-wise…

      • A Fan says:

        I agree. I find myself looking at photos of musicians/concerts from the 70s just to see regular, natural people in all their glory. It’s really nice.

  31. VintageS says:

    She’s really gorgeous in those pictures either way.

  32. sza says:

    Aussie Sprunch FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!

  33. LK says:

    She doesn’t like her natural hair and now we can see her natural hair because she is promoting some products. That pic with her dog is sad. The makeup and the way she is showing off her ring… Everything is so fake but she is still trying to look natural.

  34. A.Key says:

    I have NEVER EVER understood why people with naturally curly hair like this IRON IT OUT to make it BORING BLAND STRAIGHT, like what in the actual F?!
    I would give anything for hair like this, it’s absolutely gorgeous and beautiful!!!
    I’m so jealous.
    I have a colleague in the office who has the same natural hair and I stare at her fabulous curls every single day with envy…

  35. ash says:

    i sense white women or white passing women are about to usher in a NEW WAVE of natural hair and curls…
