Over the years, Jennifer Aniston‘s hair has become a cult sitcom in itself. First, we became as obsessed with The Rachel as we did with the storyline of Friends, and even 27 years later it remains a pop culture reference for the ‘90s.

Its various spin-offs have created just as much hype – from Jen’s brunette lowlights to long beachy waves and even a golden blonde lob. But it is Jennifer Aniston’s new, ever-changing bob that we can’t get enough of right now.

But recently we’ve seen echoes of The Rachel, albeit more modern takes, to bring the cut bang up to date for 2024.

On June 2, at the Emmy FYC event for her hit drama The Morning Show, Jen arrived at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles with a shorter bob in a sandy blonde hue.

Worn in a side-parted style, with the choppy ends tucked under on one side and casually flicked out on the other, she suddenly became the poster girl for summer’s most lustworthy, low-maintenance hairstyle. She paired the look with an equally low-key floral summer dress by Reformation.

This outing follows the The Hollywood Reporter‘s Full Drama Actress Roundtable in Santa Monica, featuring other A-listers including Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Brie Larson, Sofia Vergara and Anna Sawai.

Wearing a white waistcoat and large gold hoop earrings, Jen revealed yet another riff on her shoulder-grazing, side-parted style – this time a more polished flicked out bob, where the hair has been smoothed, the ends flicked upwards and any flyaways tamed.

The bronde hue (a shade sitting somewhere between blonde and brunette) of her hair matched the cooler palette of her smokey eye and the hint of metallic shimmer in her peach lipstick, too.

Speaking with Nicole, who addresses Jen’s “enormous career” in the video clip and how she’s sustained it, Jen humbly says “I don’t know how”. She also admits that she gets emotional in the company of these fellow actors, saying “I’ll start to cry. I get motivated, I’m still here, we’re still here.”

She certainly is. Not only is Jennifer Aniston’s career going from strength to strength, I think you’ll agree – so are the iconic hair transformations she’s serving up.
