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.

Try on Jennifer Aniston’s new hairstyle in the Makeover Studio!

(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.

    I love it, but then again I just cut my long layers into a bob. Welcome to the club, Jennifer!

    For some reason she reminds me of Barbra Streisand in that bottom pic. I’m not 100% sold on the look.

    I also thought the style of the cut made her look like Babs. Not so sure I love it… but then, she looks great either way.

    I know you posted this months ago, but I want to comment anyway. Does anyone think she would look great with side swept bangs? Or eyebrow length swept bangs? I think it would make her eyes stand out even more. That photo with eyeglasses and a bob reminds of, well, me-when I had a bob. I actually think the shorter hair makes her look younger. I like it!
