It’s the final week of university and deadline month. What does that mean? Procrastination. Reruns of Friends episodes have been playing constantly on TV. Aside from the hilarious plotlines, Rachel Green’s (played by Jennifer Aniston) hairstyles have been interesting to say the least. My hair had a 4 inch trim the other day and feeling inspired by Jennifer Aniston’s hair in the later seasons, I’m adamant to keep in the best possible condition to maintain healthy ends and glossy shine.

In the space of ten years, the actress has had one classic style after another whether it was a change of colour, cut or length. Let’s take a look at her hair history:

1992: A couple of years before her big break in Friends saw her sporting naturally brunette hair. It was thick, wavy and shoulder length – far from her glamourous image ten years on.

1995: The creation of ‘The Rachel’ that sent the world and most probably every female in an ‘I WANT THAT STYLE’ frenzy. With textured ends, a side part and a few blonde highlights – it was the cut that made history. When asked to comment on the famous style, Aniston has since said that it ‘was the ugliest haircut’ she had ever seen and the choppy layer were the result of getting rid of damaged ends.

1997: The era of effortless beach waves. With tousled, soft waves and a blonde head full of highlights– she was the ultimate girl next door.

2003: Seen at the Golden Globes award ceremony, Jennifer Aniston appeared to have returned back to her natural roots with straight and a slicked back ponytail sectioned off in a side parting. Chic, modern and classy.

2008: The move to blonde, this was the year where honey highlights became a permanent fixture in premieres, films and red carpet events. Styled with either soft curls or voluminous long layers - it’s a desirable hairstyle to this day and one that seems won’t be changing anytime soon.
