Seriously, what is going on in Hollywood? Has every celebrity suddenly decided that they’re bored with their signature look? Yesterday, Justin Bieber shed his signature hairstyle, and this morning, our friends at Lock & Mane sent us word that Jennifer Aniston had shed her long, blonde locks. According to Lock & Mane, “Aniston debuted a choppy long bob at the Madrid premiere of her latest flick, Just Go With It.”
Aniston hasn’t been shy about her hatred of the hairstyle that made her famous—The Rachel—even though millions of American women rushed to the salon to copy her signature Friends ‘do. Even after she grew out The Rachel, Jennifer Aniston didn’t stray much from long, blonde layers (although there was that brief flirtation with bangs in the early 2000’s) in more of an ashen palette.
Her loyalty to one hairstyle is why the debut of this honey-blonde long bob is such a surprise. Lock & Mane notes that it looks similar to the bob she had during the final season of Friends, although that hairstyle was a bit shorter and more rounded to frame her face. The 2011 J-Aniston bob is longer, more yellow and wispier.
(My two cents? Although the long hair was her signature look, Jennifer needed a CHANGE. Bravo! What do you think, though?)
UPDATE: I think the lighting in the above photo makes her hair look much brassier than it actually is. Here’s a more realistic shot.
