Jennifer Aniston and her famous ‘Rachel’ style were coveted by many for years after she first debuted the layered look on the sitcom Friends.

But while people everywhere were lusting after her locks, Jen has admitted that she herself was not such a huge fan. In fact, she refers to the hair cut as a "big, horrible mistake."

The actress claims the famous style did not have any real staying power.

“He [hairdresser Chris McMillan] gave me the 'Rachel', which was a big, horrible mistake. I mean, it was great at the time, but it was a never-ending legacy for some reason.”

Probably because many people were massive Rachel and Jen fans, and she pulled it off very well.

“It only lasted for about six months because it just was hard to do. I loved it, but I couldn't style it on my own. So Chris also just has that way of [making me be] completely reliant on him."

Well, now we know that celebs like Jen really are just like us. Everyone knows that washing and styling your hair for the first time after a big style overhaul can be a bit tricky.


Luckily for Jen, her hair stylist has given her some pro-tips so that her at-home hair routine is pretty much foolproof.

She told Allure that Chris has trained her in the art of the blow dry and she has perfected the art of the “big round brush” blow out.

"I'll whip that out and get a really good arm workout at the same time," she said.



When 22-year-old singer, model and actress Sky Ferreira posted a photo of her new haircut with the caption: “THE RACHEL IS REAL”, her fans got very confused.

Why? Because they didn’t know who Rachel was, or what The Rachel is.

Apparently Rachel Green’s haircut from the first few seasons of Friends is still the most requested haircut around – but only if you’re above the age of 20!

Miley Cyrus's little sister Noah was among the bewildered young 'uns, and Miley was so shocked that she posted a screenshot of the message she got from her after sending her a photo of Sky’s new haircut.

There is also a string of confused comments on Sky’s Instagram post, which have to be seen to be believed.

We’ll just be over here so, in our rocking chairs and slippers. How did this happen so soon?!
