Jennifer Aniston's Hair Evolution: The Rachel, The Bob & More

Jennifer Aniston is known for her hair, specifically "The Rachel" hairstyle that she debuted on Friends that prompted throngs of copycats. Though she's rejected that particular hairdo, saying she'd rather shave her head than get the famous cut again, she has gone through quite the evolution of locks in her time. Then, on November 4, she got everyone talking again as she chopped her blonde locks into a short bob. From long and dark, to short and blonde, we take a look back and her most memorable styles.
