Since she first appeared on Friends in 1994, Jennifer Aniston has been known for her hairstyle, known to fans of the show as "The Rachel." Recently, the 45-year old actress opened up about her long locks.
"The 'Rachel' was one of the hardest hairstyles to maintain. Me and the blow dryer and the hairbrush weren’t meant for each other," Aniston admitted to ABC News. "It really was a ‘hairdo’. When Chris [McMillan] 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!
"[The attention] is funny and entertaining in a way and it's of course very flattering to say the least," Aniston added."But I always have such a chuckle when I hear people saying I have great hair because as a kid it was always a challenge."
As a style icon, voted more than once on People's annual list of The Most Beautiful, it's hard to believe that the sexy blonde ever struggled with her looks. But that's not the case.
"My 30s were my awkward phase," Aniston said. "I'm a late bloomer."
But now the We're the Millers star has gone from her famous blonde tresses to brunette for a role in the upcoming film Cake, a drama written by Patrick Tobin.
"I’ll eventually go back to blonde but it’s been fun to do something different for a while," she said. "My hair is actually naturally dark."
In fact, Aniston is all about "low maintenance" when it comes to hair. She recently admitted to only washing her hair every other day or every three days, thanks to Living Proof hair products, for which she is a spokeswoman.
"I don’t get a lot of product build-up with Living Proof and my hair doesn’t get dirty straight away," she said. "I wash my hair with No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. And with PHD Styling Treatment I can air-dry and style my hair in 10 minutes, when it used to take 25 minutes."
In addition to Cake, Aniston will also be appearing this year in Horrible Bosses 2 and She's Funny That Way.
