Nicole Kidman looks so great with her natural hair, right?


Nicole Kidman’s HBO series, The Undoing, is set for release in October. We’ll discuss the show a little bit more below. What I’d like to discuss first is this teasing video clip Nicole posted to Instagram as hype for the show:

Oh my gawd – it’s Days of Thunder Nicole! Look at that gorgeous, curly mane. Nicole is a beautiful woman, of course, but I’d forgotten how flattering cascading curls were on her. Plus she’s leaning towards a darker red, which I always loved. Looking through her Instagram, she’s been letting the curls run free a lot lately. I assume that’s a pandemic choice and personally I hope she sticks with it. I suppose I should admit to my curly bias because I had wavy hair straightened by thickness growing up. Any curls I attempted fell out by lunch. Of course, my Italian friend with glorious spring curls like Nicole straightened hers every day – the grass is always greener, isn’t it?

As for The Undoing, it’s based on the book You Should Have Known, which I have not read. I have no idea what it’s about. And I say that after watching the teaser, reading the IMDB blurb and the Wiki entry. They all mention Nicole plays Grace, a therapist whose first book is about to be published. She has a charming husband and lovely son and then all hell breaks loose. That’s all I know. Death, desertion, and just general disaster ensues, but nobody will say what or why. But it’s working! Between the cryptic description, eerily intense teaser and the incredible cast that includes, Nicole (obvs), Hugh Grant, Noma Dumezweni, Lily Rabe, Edgar Ramírez and one of my faves – Donald Sutherland – I am all in for this. My question for those who know, should I read the book first? I feel like I should.

Also, in case you missed it, there was a sweet story about Nicole finally getting to see her mom after eight months. Nicole missed her mom’s 80th birthday due to quarantine but she, Keith and the girls are back in Australia and out of their personal quarantine, so she and her mom are finally reunited.

Here’s the trailer for The Undoing. It doesn’t clear much up:

    Nicole’s curls are absolutely delightful.
    My curls have been getting very wild because I’m too scared to go to the hairdresser. I’m getting really Biblical during this pandemic and feel like Samson with all my strength connected to my untamed mane.

    • Enny says:

      Her Days of Thunder hair is almost exactly like mine, so I’m biased 😉 but I always loved Nicole’s red curls. It also softens her overworked face a bit, just because it’s so much more natural and flattering than the extreme, straight platinum she had been favoring. After a certain age platinum does NOT look youthful anymore…

  2. Mika says:

    Curly hair is always flattened for television and in film post 1997 and it drives me insane. My curls are fucking delightful.

    • LadyMTL says:

      What really gets me is on the rare occasion where I do staighten my hair (or rather, my hairdresser does it with the blowdryer / brush because I can’t be bothered and for some reason he loves doing it) people will say ‘oh, it looks so great! You should always have your hair like this!’ and so on. I am always a little bit tempted to say to them that my curly hair is great too, tyvm.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        I know! It is maddening. I have been hearing that for 40 + years. –

      • Onnit says:

        I think they may be complimenting you on your entire look, as I always want my hair to look freshly cut, colored, and styled by a professional (which is never these days).
        Is it the poorly worded compliment that infuriates you, or the type of individuals who think it is tactful to say, “You should always have your hair like this!”. To be honest, it sounds rather passive-aggressive.
        I, for one, am really enjoying the curls that have developed over the past ten-or-so years. I had straight hair for most of my life, and always admired hair with natural body. I feel very lucky to have texture now!

      • Sarah says:

        This happened to a friend of mine with curly hair and it was wrong in so many ways, it just wasn’t her anymore! I don’t know if other people reacted differently but I was not a fan, fortunately she wasn’t either so my honestly wasn’t an issue. It is still occasionally referred to as the ‘other Steff’ incident.

  3. Lwt00 says:

    She hasn’t been able to get to the salon to touch up her roots with relaxer (you can see the new growth in the second to last pic) so she’s curling the rest of it to look presentable. Ive been there too, Nicole! But truly, she looks younger/softer with curls.

    • Cacec04 says:

      Agreed. I went from having straight hair to curly in my adult years and I love the curls because they do make me look “softer” which I’ll take. She has beautiful curls.

      • Onnit says:

        Thank you for this!!! I also went from straight hair to curly hair in my adult years, and it’s been fun having some texture (without product and effort).

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Makes me sad. So many years of ignoring her natural curls.

  5. AnnaKist says:

    I love hearing people say they have an “Italian friend”. We’re good to have.
    As for NK,the blonde never suited her. With her complexion, Mother Nature knew what she was doing.

    • Hecate says:

      I guess that did sound a little weird, I didn’t mean it to. I only specified her Italian heritage because she told me that’s where she got the curls from. But yes, she was and is a wonderful friend to have.

  6. smcollins says:

    Her Days of Thunder/Far and Away hair was GLORIOUS. I was so disappointed when she started straightening & bleaching it. She’s stunningly gorgeous regardless but her curly, red hair made her stand out even more.

    • JanetDR says:

      I think she looks younger too, because it’s not so harsh looking as straightened hair. I have a couple of co-workers with ringlet curls and I love it so much! All that body and bounce! One wears hers short and it looks very sophisticated. The other goes longer and my hippie soul adores it. It literally makes me happy when I see her.

  7. Stacy Dresden says:

    Yes. She is so awesome

  8. L4frimaire says:

    She looks so good with the curls, a softer look. Love her work.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Love her curls. I have naturally curly hair and love it as well. It lends to hiding gray hairs better than straight hair and is easy to play with style-wise. That said – I am in desperate need of a hair cut. It’s getting scraggly looking.

  10. Liz version 700 says:

    I love her natural hair. Very pretty. I saw Nichole in When she was filming a movie and she is so very tiny in person. On the screen she has such a presence she seems larger than life.

  11. ClaireB says:

    Curly hair has always looked so joyous to me!

  12. clairej says:

    Recently I had warmed to her again because I love her as an actress. Thought Keith May have softened her. But have heard some stories of first hand accounts with her over the years. Think she is a bit of an Ellen.

  13. My3cents says:

    Wow she looks so much better ,and younger as well. The blond she usually goes for always looks so flat and straw like.
    She should definitely stick with curls and a darker shade.

  14. Severine says:

    Yes, her natural hair is much better. Her natural face would have been better, too!

  15. Katebush says:

    I was always sad she bleached and straightened her hair she was soo distinctive. I love her natural hair in this clip she looks so much better.

  16. Sarah says:

    Seeing that IG pic my first reaction was that she looks like herself again. She looks fantastic.

  17. Val says:

    How can this be Ms. Kidman’s “natural” hair if there isn’t any grey visible?

  18. Granger says:

    Nicole looks amazing. But that photo of her with Hugh… to me, it says so much about the difference in the way men and women are allowed to age in Hollywood. He looks like the 60 year old that he is, with his wrinkles and those bags under his eyes. Nicole is only six years younger than him, but of course, she looks 20 years younger. Because god forbid she should have any “imperfections.” I think I’m just tired because I’m feeling especially annoyed about that this morning.

    The curls look so good on her!
