Mariah used to be most commonly recognisable for her shoulder to elbow length
slightly reddish brown curly hair. But given the number of changes in the
last few years, the trademark look is now a thing of the past.
Mariah Carey's hair was darker and straighter than her natural red/brown during
part of 1994 (see the Fantasy and Daydream covers), and in interviews and
video clips after the release of Daydream, her hair appeared much lighter,
although was once again curly.
Often Mariah appears to be almost completely blonde, and her hair is now most
often straight. But this changes, so don't take it as gospel. In summary, I
certainly wouldn't envy anyone who tried to pick out Mariah in a crowd based
on her hairstyle. Better to look for her now well-established trademark- dark
Mariah has brown eyes, stands 175 cm tall (5'9") and weighs approximately 55
kg (120 lbs). She is tall and lean, and has tanned skin, partially natural
due to her parentage. Her dress size was once reported by Cosmopolitan
magazine in the US as European 10 (US 6).
