But despite everyone else liking it, Jennifer was never a huge fan of her famous hair.

What Is The Story Behind 'The Rachel' Haircut?

This was where Chris decided to incorporate layers into Jennifer's hair so that it wouldn't become too obvious that she was growing her fringe out and to help with the process so that her hair didn't look awkward, especially when being on a TV show.

Jennifer Aniston Hated 'The Rachel' Haircut

Despite many people, particularly fans of absolutely loving 'the Rachel' and wanting to get the same look, the one person who appeared to not like the haircut was the one who had started off the trend, and that was Jennifer Aniston herself.

One of the main is the amount of effort that went into maintaining it. Jennifer has previously said that the hairstyle would require at least three brushes when she was getting ready in the morning, and it was a nightmare each time she had to blow-dry it.

She has also said that maintaining 'the Rachel' often felt like she was doing surgery. Especially with being on TV and maintaining a public image, it likely felt like a bit too much pressure to deal with for Jennifer, which eventually led to her ditching the hairstyle entirely.

Another reason Jennifer didn't like 'the Rachel' was simply due to the reason that she didn't like how it looked.

Some believe that their closeness might cause Jennifer to worry each time he styles her hair that he is going to give her the same haircut again.

Given that Jennifer has said that it was difficult to maintain, hairstylists are now taking this into account and are making these new hairstyles less high-maintenance. This includes making the layers softer and tailoring them to the hair type and texture of each individual.

'The Rachel' also had a key focus on highlights. This is another aspect of the cut that isn't as incorporated into the modern versions, as hairstylists tend to use a whole variety of colors on their clients to help them achieve the look they're after.

Jennifer Now Has Her Own Hair Product Range

Whilst she may not have been a fan of 'the Rachel', it's clear that Jennifer takes great pride in her hair, and she has gone so far as to create her own range of hair care products. The range is called 'Lola Vie' and it appears to be highly rated.
