Jennifer Aniston, The Rachel
+ My Obsession with Hair

I've had short hair, long hair, and medium length hair. I've had brown hair and blonde hair, red hair and black hair. I've had highlights and lowlights, purple streaks and more.

Somehow, this has turned into a Dr. Seuess rhyme.

Anyway, I've been hair obsessed since...

Well, since Jennifer Aniston cut her hair like this.

You all remember 'The Rachel', right?

Even though Jennifer Aniston has since said she hated this cut and thought it was the ugliest thing ever, I obviously disagreed. I took a pic to my stylist and left very happy. Looking back, I can understand why she may have hated it. The layers were a giant pain in the ass, flipping this way and that. Since this time, Jennifer has been a hair idol to many. I've been itching for a change, so I'm going to Jen once again for inspiration.

My appointment has been scheduled. I never know 100% what I'm going to do until the words come out of my mouth in the chair. I simply can't decide whether to cut it all off or leave some length. Oh, boy, this is going to be fun

The pictures of YOU with the bob are absolutely awesome. I say go for it girl. I love Jennifer's long bob and as I told you I've been obsessed with the short short bob.

I took had Rachel Hair... unfortunately... Lost of people called me Monica L (you know the famous political fluffer for Clinton).. nice right?

But I've been obsessed with her hair. I just wish a hair stylist would thin my hair so it would fall like hers. The flip do worked well with my semi curly hair.

I can't wait to see what you do!

I loved "The Rachel" but I was too afraid to get it in high school. My friend did (head cheerleader, super popular and gorgeous) and got teased for being a wannabe Rachel so she cut it all off. I thought she looked great, and so did you! Don’t worry, I had my share of bad haircuts. When I was 19 I got Jenna Elfman’s Dharma & Greg haircut. Ahhhhh!

I think I've already commented on this in three different places, but I say go short! You look great with short hair and can experiment when it grows out a little. Have fun at your appointment!

Christina said...

I just noticed you are wearing the same outfit as her. Awesome!!!

Go with the short ... the medium will soon follow! Best of both styles! Love the cuts!!!

Shelley said...

Haha I like her hair too! I love her short bob!

Ahhh we all loved the 'Rachel'...that haircut defined a decade!! I too wanted it - but my hair just wouldn't play. Oh well...now I tend to just leave it more alone - despite sudden and violent wishes to have a big change! I have found the right length and colour so to spare my tears when it goes wrong and I have to grow it out, I stay put. L x

That's a tough call.. I love them both so much, and you're super lucky to be able to wear your hair any way and have it look fabulous!
Hmmm... Short bob gets my vote! What does T think?
