Jennifer Aniston New Haircut: Hairstyle Icon Goes Short With New 'Do

Jennifer Aniston, the former "Friends" star who started a haircut craze in the '90s with "The Rachel," is making headlines once again for her new, shorter 'do.

Aniston, 44, said the decision to chop 6 inches off her long, blonde tresses last week was twofold. First, she said she needed to rehab her locks after she suffered damage from a Brazilian blowout — a chemical treatment that reportedly uses a combination of formaldehyde and keratin to straighten hair for up to three months.

"My hair went through a phase, I did this thing called a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it," she told Elle Magazine UK. "It’s about two inches above my shoulders now. ... The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It's a guarantee. I’m trying really hard to love this one."

The choice was also inspired by Vogue stylist Lawren Howell.

"It’s right at my jaw line, maybe a little longer. It was kind of spur-of-the-moment. I was flipping through the television channels and I paused it to take a picture and I sent it to [stylist] Chris [McMillan], and he said, 'That’s Lawren Howell from Vogue!' And then he said, 'I just cut that!' So that's it," Aniston told Vogue.com. "He went way shorter than hers, but she was the inspiration. I feel great. I feel lighter. It’s simple, it’s really simple, that's for sure. But I'm always one of those girls who does a big old chop just to get it really healthy, to repair all the [damage from] hair coloring and stuff like that. And I just got bored, honestly. It’s fun to change it up once in awhile."
