Twenty years after Friends made its television debut, people are still talking about Jennifer Aniston’s famous choppy, layered "Rachel" haircut. Though Aniston now opts for straight and sleek strands, she recently revealed on Good Morning America that "’The Rachel’ was one of the hardest hairstyles to maintain. Me and the blow dryer and the hairbrush weren’t meant for each other."
Her longtime stylist Chris McMillan created the iconic look for her. "It was really a ‘hairdo.’ When Chris would style it my hair would be great, it would look gorgeous. But then when I was left to my own devices, it wouldn’t look the same!" said Aniston.
Don’t we all have that problem? As much as we continue to talk about "The Rachel" today, Aniston’s current super-straight hairdo is admittedly much easier to replicate—so don’t expect Rachel Green’s ‘do to come back anytime soon. Just as well—some things are better left in the past.
