We know we’ve been asking this question for the past 15 years, so we bet you have, too: Why did Lorelai’s hair change so much over the course of Gilmore Girls?! And how did it always look so incredibly perfect?

Whether it was short, straight, and dark or long, light, and curly, Lorelai’s hair was always taking on slightly different looks from season to season — and even from episode to episode. And, according to Entertainment WeeklyLauren Graham finally answers our long-held question in her new bookTalking as Fast as I Can.

She writes,

It all makes sense!

After binge-watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life over the weekend, we started reminiscing about Lorelai’s many looks over the years. Take a stroll back in time with us, won’t you?

Remember when Lorelai’s hair was dark, straight, and shoulder-length?

Or how about when it was lusciously curly with rose gold highlights?


Pin-straight and light brown, anyone?

Or perhaps those slick ponytails inspired your everyday ‘do.

However Lorelai wore her hair, one thing’s for sure: It was always on point (even when she was rolling out of bed late and dashing off to the Dragonfly). Long live Lorelai’s locks!
