From The Rachel to Blonde Waves — Tracing Jennifer’s Aniston’s Hair Evolution

Today, Jennifer Aniston turns 52, and in addition to her iconic TV and movie roles, the actor has got to be celebrated as a hair icon—from that career-making chop to her recent California cool beach waves.

The Friends star burst onto the scene as the likable and funny Rachel Green with a shaggy, highlighted bob that became so popular it was forever deemed, “The Rachel.” And for Aniston, the ’90s were defined by a series of face-framing layers, playful clips, and glossy blowouts to accompany her minimalist-chic wardrobe. But who could forget those red carpet twists at the 1999 Emmy Awards? The actor arrived fresh faced with her then-beau Brad Pitt on her arm. They’d go on to make a splash throughout their relationship with more than a few twinning, sunny-haired looks.
