Jen Aniston Has Given Us 25 Years of Great Hair Looks—These Are Her Best

Let's be honest: If there's one woman who's been blessed with good hair days, it's Jennifer Aniston. From the voluminous, textured waves of her pre-Friends days to "The Rachel" and beyond, Jen An and her iconic sleek strands have been serving up seriously covetable hairstyles for over a quarter of a century now.

While I've already uncovered the secret to how Aniston guarantees a good hair day, every damn day (spoiler—it involves way less time spent under a hair dryer than you might think), I thought it was high time I paid proper homage to Jennifer Aniston's amazing hair with a roundup of her best hairstyles from the past 25 years.

I remember being totally obsessed with Jen's lovely, long hair at the height of the early noughties. Super sleek and centre parted, this is an iconic Aniston look.

Butterfly clips and tiny tendrils make Jen's premiere updo feel oh so '90s.

Undoubtedly, the hairstyle that springs to mind for most people first when thinking of Jennifer Aniston has to be this choppy, layered lob. It sent women to the hairdresser's in their droves in the mid-'90s, and I have to say, it's a great style for making your hair look deceptively thicker too.

Jen embraces her hometown vibes for this tousled beach-wave 'do. Apply liberal amounts of salt spray to get this matte, textured look at home.

Another Aniston special comes in the form of this sleek, layered lob. Curl the ends of your layers under when styling to shape your face like Jen.

IMO, there's nothing more expensive-looking than a ponytail. Jen's is super shiny, but pull a few strands free around the front to keep it feeling relaxed.

The half-up, half-down hairstyle is a hair look that suits absolutely everyone. Jen keeps her strands textured through the lengths to add some cool-girl personality.


Tiny Tendrils

Those two thin strands of hair that basically everyone completed their hairstyles with in the '90s? We've coined them tiny tendrils, and I'm utterly obsessed with how cute Jen An's are.

Before there was Friends, there was still Jennifer Aniston—and her hair. This style is all about the volume. Use a diffuser at the ends of your hair to help enhance your natural waves and texture.


Prom Queen

Aniston is normally known for her laid-back beach waves, but occasionally, she'll go full-on prom queen with a perfectly curled 'do. Embrace your curling tongs to create these ringlets at home.


Bright Blonde

Aniston embraces the lighter side with this switch to a brighter blonde hue to show off her bouncy waves.

Jen is normally spotted with sleek, straight strands, but she took another route here, and we love it.


Long Layers

Embrace your GHDs for Aniston's trademark '90s lengths. This look is all about the centre parting and face-framing layers.


Blunt Bob

This sharp-edged, blunt bob makes me want to chop all of my hair off immediately. Elegant, timeless and totally chic.

I'll be honest: I love this look because it's most similar to my natural hair texture. There are some great air-dry products out there that you can apply to damp hair and leave to enhance your natural kinks and waves.


Laidback Bun

Celebs love a basic bun hairstyle, but Aniston's twist on the look involves taking the relaxed style to the side for a cute premiere look.

With the front twisted up off her face and the long, loose waves, I think Jen's premiere hair look would be perfect for wedding guests or bridesmaids.
