Jennifer Garner Shows Off Her $8 Near-Mullet Haircut in Rare Childhood Pic on Instagram

Jennifer Garner is kicking off Thanksgiving a bit early by sharing the things that she's most grateful for. This week, that happens to be her hairdresser, and judging by her childhood photo, we can totally see why.

On Instagram, the Peppermint actress shared a throwback pic of herself, complete with a bright smile and a rather interesting haircut... She captioned the image, "This week I’m grateful for.....@hairbyadir. [laughing emoji]. #SometimesThe8DollarHaircutWorked #SometimesItDidnt #WithVirtue, of course."

In the post, Garner sports a mustard-yellow romper with a plaid, multicolored t-shirt. She also offers a big smile with her signature dimples, proving that she hasn't changed a bit. But of course, it was her near-mullet that caught everyone's attention. And several fans were quick to mention that she still looked charming.

Writer Kelly Corrigan wrote, "That is is some serious character-building hair right there." And Kimberly Williams-Paisley commented, "But the cut DID work, in so many ways [heart emojis]."

This isn't the only time that Garner has treated fans to a glimpse of her childhood. In September, the 48-year-old mom shared a pic of herself in a Good Humor Ice Cream costume, and fans couldn't help but point out that her face hasn't changed at all. One follower said, "You look exactly the same, only a grown up version."

Do keep the childhood snaps coming, Jennifer!
