Recently named 'Sexiest Woman of All Time' by Men's Health magazine, Jennifer Aniston is the paramount of beauty, confidence, and sexy hair. Most well-known for 'The Rachel'- her heart-melting haircut on the infant set of Friends that sent millions of women running to the salon, Aniston has gifted us with decades of titillating tress transformations. Rocking lengths, textures, colors, and layers of every sort, this American sweetheart is a true hair icon, turning any and every style into a stunning work of art.
Although she remembers it as "the ugliest hair cut of her life", Jennifer Aniston's charming shag as Rachel on the first season of Friends is undeniably one of the most popular hairstyles of all time. Men went ga-ga for the girl-next-door appeal of her face hugging layers, and women sought after her iconic messy bob for years. Since donning the covetable coiffure crown many years ago, this leading lady never looked back; she has kept us green with hair envy ever since.
Whisked Away Waves
Just as her down-to-earth persona might hint, Jennifer Aniston is a huge fan of letting her natural curl take center stage. Whether sporting beachy waves, tousled rocker curls, or just a hint of textured wave, this woman knows how to capitalize on the alluring potential of voluminous hair. Time after time, she has wooed us with beautiful, classic curlier looks. Chris McMillan, Aniston's longtime friend and stylist, offers tips on how to achieve Aniston's lovely texture. Never a fan of heat products, McMillan first sprays the roots with Bumble and Bumble Surfer Spray. He then gives the hair what he refers to as a "bad blow-dry", twisting hair around round brushes of varying sizes, and drying it only halfway. The majority of curl should come from the hair's natural body. Finally, he suggests running your hands through your mane and lightly pulling the curls apart and out, emphasizing their natural appearance.
Whoever says short hair isn't feminine and sexy hasn't seen Jennifer Aniston in a bob. Although she normally favors longer styles, every few years the star gets an itch to make a change, and she amazes us with a bold new bob. Her most recent short hair debut was a sleek, long bob. The front hit just under her chin, highlighting her face, while the back tapered into a shorter, neck-hugging length that gave the look volume and vitality. Sexy but chic, we can't get enough of Jen's and beautiful bobs.
Sleek and Straight
Brilliant shine, powerful parts, and ultra-sleek strands combine to make straight haired Jen a breathtaking sight. Her long layers and glamorous shine are simply irresistible. To keep pin-straight hair from looking dull, be sure to keep a little volume around the roots. McMillan advises to apply a dab of Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil to the ends of hair to achieve that light-catching shine that Jennifer is famous for.
Pony With a Purpose
Despite her penchant for the laid-back, Aniston knows that every good pony is created with purpose. Simply plopped on top of the head, a pony can look lazy and, cringe, even a little matronly. Aniston, however, has championed the sexy pony; she is sizzling evidence that given a style, be it poised, voluminous, sleek, or chic, a pony can show off your neck and shoulders, while adding flair to your 'do. You can also play around with your part: an off-center part generally gives your look a more elegant feel, while a barely-there center part keeps your mane fun and flirty.
It isn't just Jen's killer body and heart-stopping smile that make her The Sexiest Woman of All Time; she has down-to-earth hair that raises the standards for girl next door beauty. Brunette (a la Horrible Bosses), carmel, or blonde, Jen chooses vibrant colors with highlights that pop, keeping her tresses youtful and exciting. Although 'The Rachel' may be a little outdated, by Jennifer Aniston herself is just as hot as ever.
