Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, The Rachel Haircut


Courteney Cox almost played Rachel Green on Friends, so it's fitting that the actress would go on to try out her own version of "The Rachel" haircut.

The former Cougar Town actress stepped out of Benjamin Salon in Los Angeles Tuesday, debuting fresh highlights and an even fresher cut. Cox donned a lob during the taping for Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows, which aired Sunday, so it's no wonder she waited until after the special aired to unveil her new 'do.

While we definitely think she pulls it off, we're kind of surprised she went in this direction given how much Jennifer Aniston has gone on the record about how much she hated "The Rachel." Seeing as they're BFFs, we figured Aniston would have weighed in. Who knows! Maybe she did and Cox rocked it anyway.

Aniston was once asked on a radio show, "Would you rather have the Rachel haircut for the rest of your life or shave your head once?"

The actress quickly replied, "Shave my hair once, definitely. 'The Rachel' for the rest of my life? Shave my head once! Yeah, I'd shave my head once!"

Justin Theroux's wife has been a trendsetter in all things hair over the years, so to hear come out and bash her iconic look still comes as a surprise. But we all have those looks we wish we could take back. In 2011 she told Allure magazine of Chris McMillan's creation, "It was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen." Then in 2013 she reiterated her point by telling Marie Claire the style was "horrible."

What one describes as "horrible" is getting a reboot on someone else! Based on Cox's updated version of "The Rachel," it looks like it might be making an official comeback. Now we just have to wait and see whether she regrets this down the line.

What do you think of her new haircut? Sound off in the comments.
