You know it's funny--when Elaine's curls changed on Seinfeld in the mid-late 90s, I thought she'd started having it blow straight & then put a curling iron to it. Now that I understand CG, I'm wondering if she was one of the first? Take a look (if my pic posting works--usually it doesn't). The first is circa 1992, the second is circa 1997.
I think that she must have started using better styling methods because even now her hair has much more natural shine curly or straight than it did during the early Seinfeld days. I actually loved her shoulder-length curly styles.

She is my favorite curly hair! I've always loved her hair and want my hair to be like hers. I think that it's more a case of how the style used to be. Back in the day there wasn't really the right products for curly hair and her early pictures are pretty much what most curly haired womens hair looked like. As the times changed and products changed (and the show grew in popularity) so did her hair. I just love her hair!
