Keri Russell鈥檚 been in the game longer than you might have realized. Starting out as a kid on the Mickey Mouse Club and filling sporadic pre-teen film roles, she broke out as the namesake of the hit 鈥90s series Felicity.

For a while it seemed her hair might have been the bigger star; much ado was made when she chopped her trademark ringlets off and ratings for the show聽dropped.

It鈥檚 true 鈥 the hair was missed very much.

The close crop didn鈥檛 last long, and it wasn鈥檛 long (get it?) before she started growing the locks back out.

But just when the hair was long again, those curls took a break. If we had to guess, we鈥檇 say this was right around the consumer ceramic straightener boom of the mid-aughts. Game recognize game.

You don鈥檛 know how good it feels to run your hands through your hair till you鈥檝e gone from curly to straight.

Of course, she wouldn鈥檛 be Keri without those curls, so it was nice to see her with her natural look every now and then.(Image via Giphy)

Then she started to experiment with a wavier look.

And BOOM. The Mission Impossible days of 2006 were the start of her now beloved simple sophistication.

It鈥檚 not often she went back to a heavily styled look like this one she wore to the premiere of Disney鈥檚 Bedtime Stories in 2008.

And were rewarded with a聽hard turn back into sleek and understated territory.

She hasn鈥檛 looked back since her red carpet looks started mirroring her Americans looks.

Then, Keri got on board with the ombre, wavy trend of the past couple of years.
