We know (and love) Debra Messing for her cascading waves of gorgeous red hair (which isn't technically natural, but we'll leave that for another day). It hasn't always looked that good, though. Namely, when she tried to copy Jennifer Aniston's "The Rachel" cut from Friends

The Will & Grace star recently admitted that, based on Aniston's success with the cut at the time, she went to the actress's hairstylist to copy it. Spoiler: It did not go well.

"They literally tried for three hours to straighten my hair like hers," she said. "It was so full and poofy that it looked like a mushroom. The whole thing was just a disaster, so [the producers] decided to just keep it curly." 

Further proof not to mess with a good thing. (And that certain trends aren't for everyone.)
