It’s back! It’s 2003 all over again as Jennifer Aniston debuted a modern version of the cult haircut at the 2024 Golden Globes. Everything old comes back around. Y2K fashion has been in style for so long, it’s not surprising the beauty looks are coming back as well. She debuted her shortest cut in decades at the big award show.
‘The Rachel‘ is a cut Aniston made popular during her time on Friends. It’s a mid-length, layered style with tons of volume. Back in 2011, Aniston said in an interview with Allure that hairstylist and BFF Chris McMillan was “the bane of my existence because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look.” At the time, Aniston added, “‘How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen.’”
This new modern version has much less volume and a longer layers to bring it into 2024. Though, we have to admit. We love the original ‘Rachel’ and are happy to see it come back. It’s not ugly, Jen!
We’re going to assume McMillan is responsible for this cut as well, probably using Aniston’s LolaVie haircare line. Her highlights look fresh too, with bright blonde around her face. It contrasts nicely with her simple custom Dolce & Gabbana gown. No, it’s not going to win any “Best Dressed” awards for its uniqueness but it’s classic Jennifer Aniston and gives us a chance to talk about her hair.
The Morning Show star surprised everyone with her shorter cut, one that will probably not make an appearance on the Apple+ show. The lead stars often wear wigs in the show for continuity.
