Jennifer Aniston Asks Fans to Weigh in on Her Hairstyle and *This* Look Is a Clear Winner

Jennifer Aniston has been setting hairstyle trends ever since the mid-‘90s, when her character on Friends made waves in salons across the nation, as every woman started requesting the layered, shoulder-length style deemed “The Rachel.”

So, it's no wonder that throughout her prolific career, Aniston has continued to rock iconic hairstyles, never willing to settle on just one particular look. In her latest Instagram post, the 52-year-old star decided to take a trip down memory lane and document her many ‘dos, from her days as a television newbie walking the red carpet in 1990, all the way to her current stint on Apple TV+'s The Morning Show.

“Choose your player, hair edition...” Aniston said in the caption. She also took the opportunity to tag her newly-launched haircare company, LolaVie.

The slideshow presents Aniston's wide range of hairstyles throughout the years. At the beginning of the nineties, the actress was sporting her natural brunette color, but by the end of the decade, her hair had taken on a much blonder color. We can see that in recent years, Aniston has favored a middle part, alternating between longer, wavy styles and shorter, straighter cuts. But during that time she (and her characters) have also experimented with bangs, braids and updos.

In the comments, fellow celebs chose their favorite among Aniston's many cuts. Cookbook author and blogger Rachel Mansfield said, “Rachel forever and always,” and journalist Derek Blasberg agreed, saying, “The Rachel, of course.” Actress Ali Wentworth had a few different faves, writing, “Marley and Me hair followed by Horrible Bosses. But will always love Rock Star hair!” But Rita Wilson hated having to pick just one, as she commented, “Don’t make us choose!!”

While The Rachel clearly got the most fan votes, we're gonna have to go with Rita on this one.
