“I was not a fan of the ‘Rachel.’ That was kind of cringe-y for me,” Aniston told Glamour magazine in 2015. “Looking back—honestly, even during that time—I couldn’t do it on my own. I needed [my hairstylist] Chris [McMillan] attached to my hip. Left to my own devices, I am not skilled with a hairbrush and blow-dryer.”

In recent years, Aniston has mostly donned long and sleek hairstyles that have now become her new signature look.
