Keri Russell Knows You Hated That Goddamn Haircut, OK?

When I was 14, I saw Hackers, cut all of my hair into an Angelina Jolie-inspired pixie cut and moved to a new school, where I somehow managed to make friends, despite the fact that I looked…not good. That haircut remains one of my biggest regrets to this day. This terrible haircut and an affinity for floppy Felicity sweaters are two things that I have in common with Keri Russell, star of Felicity and The Americans.

But, because I am not a famous like Keri Russell, I did not have the eyes of a rapt nation trained on me when I made this poor choice. Would I regret my haircut more if I did? Probably! Russell certainly did. Here’s the advice she gave her younger self on Late Night With Seth Meyers. 

“Whatever you do, don’t cut your hair short during the second season of Felicity,” she says. Solid advice all around, Russell!
