The “Rachel” haircut was the best of all the celebrity hairdos from the 90’s. However, it’s well known that everyone loved the iconic haircut except for Rachel herself, a.k.a. Jennifer Aniston. And now, the actress is yet again lashing out at her signature look on Friends.
Though she made the choppy layered hairdo look effortless on screen, it was actually a pretty tricky style to achieve—even for Jennifer Aniston herself. The actress had to completely rely on her hairstylist, Chris McMillan, to shape her highlighted strands because she simply couldn’t do it herself.
“I used to call it the ‘Rachel hair’ because I got that haircut that was like, ‘Wow this is amazing,’ and then I was totally left with this frizzy mop on my head — because I had no idea how to do what he did. Nobody seems to know how to do what Chris does.”
But, just like Jennifer, most of us were also struggling for hours with a hair dryer and a round brush trying to recreate Rachel’s iconic look only to end up looking like Janice (sorry, Maggie Wheeler!).
Luckily for us, the 90’s were packed with plenty other hairdos from our favorite celebrities to imitate. From Gwen’s quirky space buns to Winona’s sophisticated pixie to Justin’s infamous ramen noodles, here are 10 iconic celebrity hairdos from the 90’s you totally rocked!
