[ # ] Keri Russell talks about that Felicity haircut
July 10th, 2017 under JJ Abrams, Keri Russell


There have been several iconic, must-see moments on television like the birth of Little Ricky on I Love Lucy, the death of Chuckles the Clown on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Who Shot JR on Dallas, the series finale of M*A*S*H, Luke and Laura’s wedding on General Hospital and the day Felicity cut off her hair.

Even though it has been almost 18 years since Keri Russell cut her for the WB drama people are still talking about it. The actress recently sat down with W Magazine and they asked her about it. She shared with them how it came about, “J.J. called me over the summer. We had shot the first season of Felicity and then he said, ‘You know we’re coming with the storylines for next year and we have this idea that the boyfriend breaks up with you and then like college girls go, you would go and cut your hair because of this big breakup. Would you be willing to do that?’ I said, ‘Yeah of course.'”

What she did not expect was the crazy backlash she got when she cut off her curls into a very short do. She said that, “Strangers did come up to me on the street and say things like, ‘You were so pretty before you cut your hair.'” While others told her they liked it. She on the other hand loved her “awkward” cut because she had a friend at NYU who did the same thing when her boyfriend dumped her.

She did not realize that there were consequences with going short when you have curly locks. She told the mag, “It just kind of grew out and was bad. I looked like a Chia Pet for a good few years. And then it was fine.”

Are you over her cutting her hair for the show? I know I am not, but then again I have a curly hair down to my butt so I am biased.
