Fact: We have never seen Jennifer Aniston's hair like this before.

Yes, it appears Jen, the world's most well-known creature of hair habit, has tried out a new 'do. The former Friends star, who let's be honest, has basically been sporting the same long and loose look for the last two decades, is rocking a side braid. And not just any side braid, a trendy fishtail effect.

The star's longtime hairstylist, Chris McMillan, posted a snapshot of the woven look on Instagram Friday morning, affectionately adding "#ilovethisgirl" to the caption.

Of course, it's not as if Aniston never switches up her hairstyle. But usually she opts for a cut or a slight color change. Rarely (if ever) has she sported an updo that's not a ponytail.

She has, however, added braids to her mane before. Most notably, she debuted a subtle French braid to her hairline at the 2009 Oscars and also an edgier version of the plait while at the 2013 Spike TV Guys' Choice Awards.

But back to her most recent braid. The look is very likely for McMillan and Aniston's test shoot for Living Proof. The pair have been working on the project for the last few days at his Beverly Hills salon—even getting a visit from the her fiancé, Justin Theroux, on Wednesday afternoon.

So what do you think? Should Jen test out more braided hairstyles?
