Back in the day, it was a thing to have Jennifer Aniston hair when she was starring on Friends. Everyone and their mother was getting the ‘Rachel’ cut and Jennifer became nearly as famous for her luxurious locks as her acting chops. The actress abandoned the ‘Rachel’ cut years ago but her long, beautiful hair has remained a trademark ever since. Until now!

If there is any actress in Hollywood we never expected to chop off all her hair, it would be Jennifer Aniston! Amazingly, that seems to be exactly what she decided to do. The Hollywood beauty, currently engaged to Justin Theroux, has sheared off her lovely long locks and is sporting a new short bob by longtime stylist Chris McMillan.

Least you wonder, no, the new Jennifer Aniston short haircut is not for a movie role. She told Elle U.K. that she did “a thing called a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it,” so she had to do something to fix it and “it’s about two inches above my shoulders now.”

That story is a bit in contrast to what she told PopSugar. Rather than saying it was some kind of fix for a style gone bad, Jennifer told the gossip site she “was just ready for a change. I was ready for something new, to get it out of my face, so I could have a bit of an easier go at it.”

No worries though, if you are a fan of a longer Jennifer Aniston haircut. “The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always,” she told the magazine. Well, Jen, we have to tell you… we want it back to. Honestly, we think the cut is just too young, too edgy and way too much Posh Spice (aka Victoria Beckham) for us.
