On Friday night ELLE exclusively chatted with Jennifer Aniston: she of the we-want-it hair and former owner of the now infamous Rachel haircut. When putting to her the question of whether she would consider cutting her hair for a role she revealed that she has just gone for the chop.
‘Funny you say that. I actually just cut all my hair off two days ago,’ the star told ELLEuk.com exclusively.
So why the change? ‘It wasn’t for a role. My hair went through a phase - I did this thing called a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it.
'It’s about two inches above my shoulders now,’ Aniston revealed.
It’s not the worst timing for the star to feel compelled to cut her hair. This season, mid-length hair - or as ELLE called it in our AW13 trend report ‘The Rebel Cut’ - is every where.
In fact, numerous members of team ELLE including our editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy, ELLE assistant editor and ELLE Collections editor Rebecca Lowthorpe and news & social media editor Leisa Barnett have all gone for the chop (and we’re not exaggerating when we say there are too many ELLE staffers to list them all here).
But not one to follow trends, the actress isn’t too sure about her new shorter haircut.
‘The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It’s a guarantee. I’m trying really hard to love this one,’ she said.
It's not the first time the star has sported a bob; her hairdresser and longtime friend Chris Macmillan (who also cut off Miley Cyrus's hair) tends to crop Aniston's hair every few years to keep it looking healthy.
