Jennifer Aniston Says "The Rachel" Was Impossible to Maintain, So Stop Fretting Over Those Layers

If you've never been able to perfect "The Rachel," you're officially off the hook! Jennifer Aniston herself couldn't maintain "The Rachel" without professional help and if the Friends star who originated the look can't keep it up, no one should expect us amateurs to do so.

In an interview with ABC News, the actress opened up about her haircare routine. She uses Living Proof products, for which she is the spokesperson, and washes her hair every three days (joining Connie Britton in the Celebs Who Don't Wash Their Hair That Much Club).

But what about "The Rachel"?! Aniston's, um, unique sense of style as Rachel Green would never have worked without the famous hairstyle tying things together. Apparently, Aniston was never able to achieve the look on her own.

In fact, Aniston actually loathes "The Rachel." In 2011 she described the 'do as "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen" and in 2013 she told a radio show that she'd rather shave her head once than sport a "Rachel" for the rest of her days. Fair enough... variety is the spice of life, after all.

Despite her hatred of the famed haircut he created, Aniston still has hair appointments with Chris McMillian on a regular basis. I can't say I've ever really longed for "The Rachel" (plus, my curls would make that particular look impossible), but "ugliest haircut ever" seems harsh. Has Aniston not seen Skrillex hair?
