Jennifer Aniston’s hair guy posts photo of Aniston’s new bob: cute or disastrous?


Last week we heard the sorrowful tale of how Jennifer Aniston had chopped off her golden locks, thus losing her magical powers. She’s like the Samson of TV actresses! While it would have been news no matter what (Aniston’s hair is always news, believe it or not), what I found particularly interesting is WHY she needed to cut her hair. Apparently, Jennifer was trying an experimental and very dangerous “Brazilian” chemical treatment involving formaldehyde and keratin to chemically straighten your hair, giving you that oh-so desirable 1990s “just flat-ironed” look.

While you’d think Aniston would be old enough to know that she should put formaldehyde on her hair (WTF!), it’s even more interesting because she’s an investor and profit participant in Living Proof, a haircare line that is supposed to be able to manage her hair naturally, without all of the chemical bulls—t. Aniston has been shilling Living Proof for a year, swearing by it up and down. And now it turns out that she felt the need for experimental chemical straighteners? Interesting.

Anyway, Aniston’s long-time hair guy and BFF Christopher McMillan posted the header photo to his Instagram with the hashtags: “LOVE! “#JenniferAniston #bobhaircut #LivingProofInc #Flex #PerfectHairDay”. Well, that answers one question I had: whether this CODE RED HAIR DISASTER would ruin Aniston’s longest-standing relationship with a man. It hasn’t. Us Weekly even ran a story yesterday about Jennifer’s color treatment and how Chris is still putting the “finishing touches” on her look. But let me ask you something ladies: if your BFF hair guy ruined your hair with chemicals to the point where you had to chop nearly everything off, would that guy still be your friend?

Interestingly enough, just before Jennifer’s chemical disaster, she got her ear cartilage pierced with her new BFF Gucci Westman. Gucci posted this photo on her Instagram:

    Hard to tell from the photo, but I kind of like it. It’s different.

  2. MinkysMum says:

    She copied me..had mine cut like this 2 weeks ago. Gaping mouth in photos to minimise jowls…SO obvious. I know…I do it :)

  3. eliza says:

    Ear cartilage piercing. How 1990 of her.

    • Bridge13 says:

      I had the same thought. I had mine pierced in Panama City during Spring Break ’95.

      • Wrachul says:

        That made me smile. I grew up in Panama City, survived many spring breaks here. Lots of piercings and tattoos done during that time!

      • janie says:

        Good grief! She got a haircut? Move on, who cares?

      • Shannon1972 says:

        I was in Panama City for spring break in ’95! Apologies to Wrachul for any havoc I may have caused while there, or the incessant sorority chanting we did at all hours. It’s kind of a hazy blur now, but I’m pretty sure we weren’t drinking water in those water bottles.

        Oh, and don’t reall have an opinion on Jennifer’s hair or midlife crisis ear piercing. Just clicked because I was curious to see it.

      • Wrachul says:

        @Shannon 1972

        In 1995 I’m pretty sure I was out there enjoying it myself. I was in high school at the time but that didn’t stop us of course. Spring break is still big business here, and us locals just complain a lot about all the madness. Although many peoples salaries are paid by the business it brings! Glad you had a good time.

        As for the haircut, I think it’s fine. People look for stuff to get worked up about.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      IDK, I know it isn’t some new great original thing, but I like the way it looks. I don’t get the criticism.

      • Josephina says:

        She is a 44-45 year old lady talking about her hair cut and no, it is not for a role. She has been quoted TALKING about her hair to THREE media outlets, … at age 45,..

        NOW we have a selfie– a FOURTH coverage photo, promoted by her, in less than a week. BTW, People Magazine is “covering ” this also. And she /Chris PROMOTE this at the same time that over 10,000 people are dead from the catastrophic typhoon that hit the Phillipines. In “their” world, this is news.

        I expect these mindfarts from much younger persons, if at all. You gotta be pretty self-absorbed and numb-minded to allow your hair to take front and center as topic of discussion at this stage of your life.

      • YuYa says:

        I don’t get it either. I cut my hair shorter this weekend too and I have been gabbing with my sister about it. (She’s my paparazzi lol) and I am almost 46….I didn’t realize that once you hit a certain age you need to be serious.

        Also, Josephina, these were posted before the typhoon, and I don’t see you avoiding Celeb news either. Much less not posting out of respect for the lost victims. I have a ladder you can use to get over yourself you know.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        Thank you YuYa! Yikes, these Aniston haters are intense. Hope you love your new haircut! ♥

      • Josephina says:

        @ YuYa-

        That is a bit rich of you to think that I or anyone else only I post to just this site. Here’s proof that the Henettes think just like Aniston!!!

        Your statement that you stated here says it all “I didn’t realize that once you hit a certain age you need to be serious. ” By all means, stay as you are. You are not a Hollywood actress.

        It is not the hair cut itself, it is the ANNOUNCEMENT of the hair cut… at age 45… to news media outlets… in the wake of real disasters. She just gave comediens new material.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Yuya, who wrote: “Also, Josephina, these were posted before the typhoon, and I don’t see you avoiding Celeb news either. Much less not posting out of respect for the lost victims. I have a ladder you can use to get over yourself you know.”

        Well let me cast some wood on the fire.

        My problem isn’t the constant none issue of her hair extensions. My issue is that if anyone else had posted comments–and these ‘were’ Jennifer Aniston’s comments–carping about chopping off their hair (extensions) because they’d tried a harsh chemical relaxer contrary to their contracted and co-owned “Proof of Life” hair products line, and then suddenly started Instagraming SUPPOSED original photos of from Hair Stylist just after chopping off their hair (never mind that the photo above and the ones posted here earlier this week don’t look the same), anyone else would be racked over the coals for lying and being a phony hypocrite.

        Yes, anyone else would have been racked over the coals … but not sweet, innocent ‘All Natural’ girl next door Jennifer Aniston.

        Blind loyalty is one thing, but deliberate and ‘disingenuous’ blindness is another thing all together.

        Why isn’t anyone calling her out on this?

      • Petee says:

        You must really like her.To each their own.I know people like her because they can relate to her.She is like a neighbor on the block.She is not overly attractive,bland just kind of there type of girl.I don’t love or hate her.She just has no appeal.

    • kiyoshigirl says:

      Not sure it’s so much of a 1990′s thing for her to do as it is a sign of immaturity. Girls still do this type of thing, but usually in their teens or young twenties. She’s trying desperately to hang on to her youth and prove that she’s “alternative”. She’s not.

  4. Jacqueline says:

    I used to go to one of the top guys in my town. The last time I was here for a base touch-up, I don’t know what they did but they colored my roots even darker! For a while it looked like a headband, but now I’m down to a random stripe (after four attempts at correction). I’ll never go back there as long as I live – and I got to KEEP my hair!!

  5. Naye in VA says:

    I believe it looked like this for a season of Friends.

  6. lisa2 says:

    So her hair guy is posting pics of her. First no make up now this New/OLD haircut. she had years ago. He has been doing her hair for years, now all of a sudden he is posting pics of her that relate to the things she is vested in..

    This is such a C/D list move or one of someone needing attention. This whole hair thing was total PR and nothing else. I saw some stylist or someone called this saying that there would be a picture of her hair all done.. and here it is..

    I guess we will get a story on her exercise routine next.

  7. MrsBPitt says:

    It looks good! At least its a change…Of course, the ONLY way she would change her hairstyle, was because she HAD to!

  8. Melanie says:

    Brazilian blow outs are nothing new for her, we perform them in the salon where I work and she has been on the marketing for the product. While I’m in no way saying I approve of the chemicals in the product I can tell you that it’s only damaging to your hair if the stylist is not properly trained. If you do not comb out the excess product before drying it you will over keratinize the hair causing breakage. I get them in mine to help repair the damage from years of going back and forth between blonde and brunette.

    • Abby says:

      THIS. It’s not “experimental.” It’s been around quite a while and I’ve had multiple treatments done over the last few years. It’s the only thing that’s made my frizzy hair texture better for the long term.

    • Miffy says:

      Thank you, the first I heard of a Brazilian blow out was Nicole Richie talking about hers on Twitter back when she had the long dark hair with a fringe or bangs (depending on where you’re based). What was that? Like three, four years ago?

      There was a campaign to ban the treatment here in Ireland (because of the use of formaldahyde) about three years ago. It didn’t go through based on the government looking hypocritical for banning one product for the chemicals it uses when they make so much money on tax from cigarettes.

      It’s not really new a treatment and the chemicals used in it aren’t really breaking news either. Not an Aniston fan but let’s be sensible about what we pick on her for… now that piercing is a totally different matter. Lamest midlife crisis action ever!

    • tmbg says:

      I’ve heard that there are new formulations without formaldehyde, but my stylist still won’t do them.

      As for the cut, I think it’s cute!

  9. Kim1 says:

    Interesting my sixteen year cousin and her BFF got their ear cartilages pierced this summer.

  10. Sienna says:

    Only C-Listers post selfies to get attention and Jennifer is now officially a C-Lister. Plus this whole haircut thing has proven to the world what a liar Jennifer is.

    First she has this cut because of a failed Brazilian hair treatment, then she was looking through the tv channel and saw this editor from Vogue and wanted a similar hair cut and now she was bored and just wanted to a change.

    Among all of this Jennifer managed to advertise her Living Proof products as well. Man this woman would do anything to make sure that her vanity and products gets into the news.

    One thing I really cannot understand how a woman like Jennifer who has all the money in the world and the opportunity to do something for others – doesn’t do anything but being vain, selfish and a user. Whenever she is bored – then off to Mexico to show the world her bikini body (after months of exercising, tanning, laser treatments, botox etc) or either colour or cut her hair, shop for furniture for the $20M house she bought as a bribe to keep her fiance interested.

    PS: Jennifer said that she wants to get married with long loose hair – now that she has cut of the length – then that is another excuse for postponing the wedding again? Although she could use extensions like she has always done these past few years and claim that it was her own hair.

      • lenje says:

        LOLOL Marina… well said! I expect tons of comments later this day. Polarizing figures are good for site clicks :) ))

      • Cecilia says:

        @ marina

        Love your comment. *hee hee*

      • lisa2 says:

        Your are right it is just a haircut.

        now why is she (Aniston) making such a big deal about it. Interviews instagram pics..

        maybe someone should tell Jennifer it is just a haircut.

      • Adrien says:

        lisa, she didn’t post the IG photos, her stylist did.

      • lisa2 says:


        do you really think he would have posted a picture of her without her permission. That doesn’t happen unless Jennifer ok’s it.. This was the 2nd posted picture. He did it because she was fine with it. As I said before it has never happened in the past. Don’t think for a minute she didn’t want that picture posted. Especially after the first ones came out.

      • Tulip Garden says:


        Great comment!

        I think you are right that she gave her friend/stylist permission to post the photo….is that bad or something?

      • Josephine says:

        But in Sienna’s defense, Jennifer has managed to make it into a PR opportunity, especially with the rotating stories of why she did it in multiple interviews. It is just a haircut, so why the full court PR press about it? Most people don’t need to “introduce” their hair cut.

      • Tulip Garden says:


        I am always surprised about how much attention a hair cut can get when done by famous people. I’ve read stories about Jennifer Lawrence’s hair cut and Pamela Anderson’s this week. Also, what about all the hype about Miley Cyrus’s new ‘do? Oh, and even though I probably shouldn’t, even Pitt was like on hair cut watch that for awhile. Strange isn’t it?
        I do think Jennifer played into the publicity angle of it, I just don’t think that it is that unusual for people to do that. Unsurprising particularly for Aniston because she has a hair care line to promote. JMO

      • Cecilia says:

        @ Tulip Garden

        Well said…I was thinking the same thing. Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley & even Pitt — all get attention with a new haircut.

      • lucy2 says:

        People post photos of new haircuts all the time. Apparently when certain celebs do it, it’s the end of the world.

      • Sienna says:

        @Cecilia: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley and Brad Pitt aren’t shamelessly promoting any hair products they have money invested in. Plus all of those above have real talent in acting, producing, and even Miley can sing.

        Jennifer has been in the industry for 2 decades as she is only known for 3 things – Friends, hair and ex-Mrs Pitt. Friends and Mrs Pitt has long gone so now she only has her hair and she uses it rather pathetically to get into the news and also to earn money. Cant really blame on this since she doesn’t have any real acting talent to fall back into and now has to resort to do selfies and things like this like a true C-Lister.

      • Josephina says:


        I agree with you. Comparing 45-year old Aniston to 20-something year old Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Miley Cyrus or ANY other YOUNG actress is our collective point. It is a foolish statement. Those young pretty women are not her peer group. But since some made that comparison, even that speaks volumes of how THEY see Aniston.

        Pitt gets his haircut mostly for roles on his upcoming films. He surely would NOT run to media outlets to “dish” on his new do the way Aniston has. And he sure ain’t gonna put a selfie out there like a Facebook or Instagram junkie.

        Did she cut it because she got bored, or because of the Brazilian treatment, or because of split ends, or she wanted a change? The speculation exists because SHE put it out there. Now people are talking about Brazilian treatments, coloring, split ends, too short hair cuts, and long hair extensions. Is this REALLY what ANY 45 year old woman wants to be known for?

        She is ACTIVELY involved in the PR stunts– the lame, tired but repetitive plant-and-deny scheme, … trying to make non-issues into headlines. The publicity strategy should have moved way beyond simply getting attention in the press. There should be teeth to cut after 20 years in film, not just your hair.

        All of it wreaks of transparent immaturity… at age 45.

        When Aniston had the Rachel haircut she was concerned about being known only for her hair. It seems she had better sense then.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Tulip Garden, who wrote: “I am always surprised about how much attention a hair cut can get when done by famous people. I’ve read stories about Jennifer Lawrence’s hair cut and Pamela Anderson’s this week. ”

        Yes, but did Jennifer Lawrence and Pamela Anderson kick off the discussion of their hair by stating they’d ‘chopped it all off’ because they tried a harsh chemical relaxer that didn’t work? I believe ‘that’ is the point Josephine and Lisa2 are trying to make. Articles were written about Jennifer Lawrence and Pamela Anderson’s hair cuts, but Jennifer Aniston started the dialogue about her hair herself, then ‘changed’ the story once she realized she was ‘supposed’ to co-own a hairline product and that what she’d said went against loyalty to that products line.

        You guys are deliberately over-looking that fact; which is what you always do with anything that might cast Jennifer Aniston in a negative light. Then you’ll later deny any such thing ever happened. It’s a pattern her Jen-Hens have adhered to for nearly a decade now. I guess it’s just hard-wired in all of you.

        But you haven’t the right to then accuse others of fabricating a valid, ‘real’ issue you simply refuse to acknowledge.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        Oh wow, just came back to check on the discussion and I see that some here have a very different opinion than I do or you view things very differently than I do. I really appreciate that you all responded but I really don’t think it’s worth….here’s the thing, I don’t have the problem with Jennifer that you all do. I don’t think she’s perfect but I don’t think that she’s the devil’s minion either!
        When you get down to it like Marina said, it’s just a haircut! Publicity by her or by outlets just doesn’t make me upset.
        I’m not going to respond beyond this because I think that judging by the last comments it’s getting personal and stan-ish and too OTT for me.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      LOL, well said Sienna. She’s sooooooooooooooooo boring.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I believe Portman, Pitt , and Lawrence have “shamelessly” (ha! Ha!) promoted some product. Fashion lines for the ladies and perfume for Pitt. I don’t equate any of them as c-listers! Oh as far as Miley, she was extremely corporately driven in the first place although I cannot imagine what entity would want her representation now :) .

      I find Aniston a talented comedic actress. I did roll my eyes the continual Rom coms. Thankfully she has switched gears with Horrible Bosses and We’re the millers. I think that trend continue with the Squirrels to the Nuts film and the Leonard Elmore one.

      • @Tulip Garden says:

        When did Portman, Pitt , and Lawrence have “shamelessly” promoted a product ?

        When has Portman or Lawrence give an call up Vogue or other media outlet and give them a heads up on a new outfit they going to wear on a red carpet or anywhere else. Pitt didn’t even really promote Chanel so were are you getting this from.

        If you want to talk about “shamelessly” promoting a product The ones that come to mind are Goop, Kim K and family, Tori Spelling, Katy Perry and so on.

        I think Jen is above this but this reminds me of when Kim kardashian when on The Tonight Show to promote her self and her new more “private life”.

        I really wish she would have did what Pamela Anderson did which was nothing. Pam didn’t call up Vogue or Elle and she didn’t try to make her hair cut seem like more then what it is.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Tulip Garden, who wrote: “I believe Portman, Pitt , and Lawrence have “shamelessly” (ha! Ha!) promoted some product. Fashion lines for the ladies and perfume for Pitt.”

        (Blinks) The people you’ve mentioned were ‘paid’ to promote these things, they didn’t own or even ‘co-own’ the fashion line or Channel No 5. There ‘is’ a difference between what they’ve been paid to do and what Jennifer Aniston does to promote a hair products line she co-owns. You ‘can’ see that, can’t you??

        You are (all) acting as if the recent hoopla over this new hair cut, now being attributed to her ‘Proof of Life’ hair products line, has only ‘been’ about this new hair cut. None of you are commenting on Jennifer’s original (and still undefined) comments about getting the cut because she’d tried a Brazilian chemical relaxer and is damaged her hair.

        And yes, we all get that you’re a loyal Jen-Hen.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        OH, again, here we go. Look you all are way more invested in disliking her vociferously than I am in defending her. I just think the people that dislike Anniston do so with a passion that is unsurpassed. Anyone that does like her seems to get hounded to death about it.

        @no name up above, I used “shamelessly” in quotations because I don’t think that there is any “shame” in promoting a product. That goes for all who do so.

        I think it makes more sense to promote something that you have a stake in as Jennifer does Living Proof. The others are just hired guns and there is nothing wrong with that either. My comment that is so important about her “Brazilian blowout” or “spur of the moment cut” is this: it can only be one or the other. I just do not particularly care which it is. She’ll probably be on some show and “explain” what she meant. Whether you believe her or not, it’s up to you.

        Lastly, I think the terms “loons” and “hens” meant to belittle people and stop a conversation cold. Mission accomplished.

        This is ‘not’ about disliking Jennifer Aniston. This is about the FACT that Jennifer Aniston claimed one thing last week, claimed another a few days later, and is now in an obviously sanctioned ‘Instagram’ giving all props and glory to her regular hairstylist for an apparently ‘planned’ hair cut, with no mention whatsoever of the disastrous Brazilian perm. ‘That’s’ what we’re (well, I’m) posting about here.

  11. ADD says:

    I’ve read two stories why Jenn got the haircut. One story has her experiencing hair damage after some kind of treatment, and another one wanting to look like someone who works at Vogue. Which is it?!

  12. marina says:

    Maybe the story is BS and she just wanted to cut it. She had it like this a while back. I like the cut and her face looks gorgeous in the phone where she has her hair pulled back. I don’t know why she alway has her hair hanging in her face. It’s like a security blanket of some kind. My husband thinks she is gorgeous and is getting better with age. Luckily i’m not the jealous type, but I’d kill for that body!

        My aunt’s boyfriend thinks she’s hot too–I think she’s pretty, and she would’ve been way better looking, if she hadn’t messed with her nose or her hair. I watched a few Friends episodes while I was kitten sitting for my grandma this weekend (I don’t have tv at my house) and she looked waaaay better with her darker hair and orig. nose than she does now. She just looks so generic now. Why can’t she be the “exotic” surfer/California girl.

        Excuse me for asking, but … are you the ‘original’ Virgillia Corlolanus?

      • lenje says:

        Wow, Emma, so because Virgilia has been a fan of the Jolie-Pitts, she can’t be saying some positive things about Aniston? I suppose you want to call out Sal down there who actually says that she likes Aniston’s current hairstyle.

        This is my personal view, of course, based on what I gather from Virgilia’s comments. If I remember correctly, she’s younger than perhaps most of us (18 or 19 yo?), is a self-confessed Jolie-Pitts fan, dislikes Aniston but can elaborate why she doesn’t like Aniston without resorting to name calling, and gives credit where its due. She sounds (or reads) mature and wise beyond her age. I may not agree with her on many accounts, but I have no problem to say she can teach a lesson or two to many of us.

      • Monkey Towz says:

        @ LENJE, I also find Virgilia’s comments very insightful for her young age. We should try not to judge our fellow Celebitches when there are so many Celebs much more worthy of bitching about. (Politicians too)

        That’s not why I asked, and I nearly asked at a post about.

        Why do you think some of us know when an Alias is being used? It’s more about syntax than anything else. I’m just used to seeing her posts written in a different style, that’s all. It has nothing whatsoever to do with what she’s said. This isn’t the first time she’s written something positive about Jen Aniston.

    • KC says:

      I asked a close guy friend which actress he found most attractive fully expecting a generic response like Mila Kunis or even Halle Berry. I almost tripped when he said Jen Aniston. The man has been lusting after her since he hit puberty clearly.

      She definitely does have a girl next door appeal going especially for people who dont read celeb dirt.

      • springingforward says:

        We did this at a party once and the guys’ answers ranged from Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz to Scarlett Johansson. The comment made about Jennifer Aniston was that she “maintains herself”. So there is that, I guess….
        Of course none of these men know anything about her fixation with the 1990′s and double dipping on John Mayer after he publicly humiliated her following the first break up, etc. I can see if they don’t know anything more about her than a 2 dimensional image that there is an appreciation for her figure at the age of 44.

      • Cecilia says:

        @ springingforward

        I have never heard a guy describe a woman as “she maintains herself” Are you sure these were guys that you were talking to? Lol

  13. Cecilia says:

    I can’t really tell how it looks from this pic. It looks kind of limp & lifeless to me.

  14. Hautie says:

    Actually Aniston has been doing those hard core straighteners for years/probably over 10 years by now. About half through the Friends years… she started getting them. I had a stylist try to talk me into one back then. But I declined. I don’t mind my crazy curls.

    But the thing is… like with any chemical process on your hair… it can only be done so many times. Till there is a mishap. Especially when using any kind of harsh chemical. Like being blonde. You simply can not keep on high lifting your hair, for years, without something going wrong. Your hair needs a break from it all. Which means you end up with a very short bob or a pixie cut.

    I am not fond of that bob Aniston is sporting. I don’t like those razor thinned out ends of her hair. A really great undercut bob would have looked much nicer. And be a lot easier to grow out. She will have to loose another two/three inches within the year to clean up that jagged bottom.

    That is if she is going to have long hair again. Maybe she will fool us all and go shorter. (not!)

  15. epiphany says:

    Hair, latest rom-com, Cabo… hair, latest rom-com, Cabo… No wonder she endorses a hair care line, her life is like the directions on a shampoo bottle. A 44 year old woman should have more profound interests than her looks.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Who’s Chris? Her hair guy, right???? Please post the blind–sounds interesting. That might also be why she (at least directly) shut up about Angelina and Brad–beyond praising Brad to the high heavens in that Vogue interview, while acting as though Angelina killed her dog–which I found interesting. That she has nothing but nice things to say about Brad (even in her Vanity Fair interview she defended the “missing a sensitivity” comment she said about him, saying he wouldn’t have seen it as an insult to her), but with Angelina, she’s “uncool” because she said that she liked going to work with Brad, and because she said that their relationship took a lot of months to develop and that they just talked a lot–which isn’t specific timlines, so I don’t understand what she’s mad about.

      So post the blind!

      • Eva says:

        I think it’s this one

        Secrets from the BFF Old gossip now leaking, courtesy of her BFF – in whose chair she sat after her split, receiving therapy and getting pretty at the same time. That’s what friends are for. Only lately her BFF is getting tired of her attitude problem – friendship is apparently on her terms and the BFF is treated alternately as servant and confidante. So since the BFF can be as catty as they come, secrets are starting seep, shedding light on several mysteries, including weight, children, and heartbreak, all pointing to one cause. Male hormones??? According to the BFF, she took male hormones as a way to stay thin. As a result, she miscarried at least once, which is what resulted in the big break – she lost love because she was obsessed with being skinny…so says the BFF. The BFF also confirms that she has since stopped, which is why her body is back to lovely.Still…her reputation, or her looks for that matter, won’t be lovely for long if BFF keeps yapping. In many ways, in one very critical way, she needs her buddy more than her buddy needs her.

      • Cecilia says:

        @ Eva

        This blind sounds like Jessica Simpson & Ken Paves. Lachey was pressing Jess to pop out babies at one point. Jess, Ken & Lachey all parted ways. If Chris had betrayed Jen in this way she would no longer be with him. Also, I think Chris needs her more than she needs him.

      • pwal says:

        Sorry, Cecilia…
        Lainey hinted several times that it was Aniston. In fact, here’s a link to a Lainey Blinds fansite that chronicled the numerous times she revealed Aniston as the subject via jabs, referencing the Secrets from the BFF blind. It’s on the bottom of the page:

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’d believe that blind was based on her, simply because of that friendship line. Not that I think Jennifer’s this monstrous, evil person–but based on what I’ve seen, she doesn’t seem to have much time for anything that doesn’t directly involve her. Like after her divorce, she was always w/Courtney and David. When Courtney went through a divorce, where was she? Was she defending her friend via interviews, like Courtney did with her own VF interview? She also doesn’t seem to deal much with her family–and I’m not talking about her mom either. Unless all of her family sided with her mom, when she did that horrible book about her, or there’s something else that went wrong, I don’t get how you don’t ever spend holidays with your family. Every Thanksgiving she goes to Cabo, right?
        But it is tiring to have a friend who only really is your friend when things are happy and fun–but expects you to be at his/her beck and call when they’re going through something, but won’t do the same for you.

        But I would say that if somebody in her circle knows something, then it would be the hairguy.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Pwal …

        Lainey has been wrong before. If Jennifer Aniston had ever had a miscarriage, it certainly would have come out during her 2005 “Vanity Fair” interview or during her 2005 televised Diane Sawyer interview or during her September 2005 ‘Just us Girls’ glasses of champagne show.

        @Virgilia Coriolanus …

        What horrible thing did Jen’s mother say about her in the book? I didn’t read it, so I’m curious.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        It was just the fact that her mom wrote a tell all book about her—making a profit off of her, when Jennifer didn’t want her to. Which is horrible, in my opinion. If I was famous, I wouldn’t want any of my family members writing books about me (specifically about me, in terms of my rise to fame), especially without my permission.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Virgilia Corlolanus, who wrote: “It was just the fact that her mom wrote a tell all book about her—making a profit off of her, when Jennifer didn’t want her to.”

        People keep saying that Nancy Dow (Jen’s mother) wrote a ‘tell all’ book about her. But have you ever heard or read anyplace where someone claimed ‘According to Nancy Dow’s book, Jennifer Aniston did ‘this’ or ‘that’? I haven’t, and the book was published 15 years ago. So what exactly did she tell?

        The reviewers at Amazon seemed to think the book was all about Nancy, and not one of them said ‘I can’t believe she said ‘that’ about Jennifer!’

  17. Stacy says:

    I guess she really was jealous Jennifer Lawrence new hair cut and Tom Cruise drama, stole her hair cut thunder.

    So it looks like she had her hair guy post these pictures to get everyone talking about her again how sad. This feels like something Demi Moore would do for attention.

  18. Monkey Towz says:

    I’m an old so I didn’t realize cartilage piercings were “out”. I’ve had one for years & love it. I think she looks good here & I don’t usually find her attractive. Maybe it’s b/c I haven’t seen her with that Chelsea Beast in a while.

  19. Nicolette says:

    Hmmmm, so she lopped off a few inches of her hair and got her cartilage pierced. Wow, she’s hardcore.

    • Sal says:

      pmsl. I don’t get why she got her cartilage pierced (if thats even her in the mirror images, it looks absolutely nothing like her) when she has her hair down all the time covering her ears. I wonder how long she had the piercing and we just didn’t know it because she covers her ears with hair?

  20. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She looks good. I like the bob cut on her, but I’m not wild about that silvery-blonde color. I think she looks better in warmer shades of blonde.

  21. LD says:

    i like it. she’s always had good hair and it looks good at any length, and i believe (if i’m correct) being the loyal “friends” fan that i am..she’s had this exact cut at one time.

  22. Josephine says:

    I like the cut, but I think her hair is too blonde, from this pic at least. It just shows that she’s a cute person, but not a beauty — her fuller hair really did elevate her looks.

    But I give her all sorts of points for not using extensions. I just hope it lasts – her hair is awfully flat without them. (And I agree with the others about the piercing and the selfies — too C-list for her).

  23. Sal says:

    Are the followup photos from the same occasion as the first? As it doesn’t look like it. I love the hairstyle she has in the first photo with her hairdresser next to her.

  24. Liberty says:

    J: Thank you! I was totally inspired by an editor I know at Vogue who experienced severe hair damage from boredom. So I called my guy and said, “Yoo hoo Chris whatcha doin’? I am sooooo bored too!” And he was all, “I think I am doing a bob for you, girl — unless you need to be out in NYC for anything?” And we laughed and I was all, “Hell noes!” Honey, I’ve done New York and I don’t like it because you can’t do anything out there without people taking your picture and posting it.

    Ed: Tell us more!

    J: You are so sweet! So we set aside November to devote to my hair and achieving transformation. We did the blessing, then, had the sacrificial Brazilian, then brought the hair doctor in from MIT’s Living Proof clinic for the actual cut because you know, ends. Now we’ll be doing finishing touches until Thanksgiving. I have my team and the MIT lab techs staying at an awesome hotel nearby and every night after the process we go and chill out with the new SmartWater cocktails that are so delicious and hydrating, my skin is better than ever! and we like just bond and look at our hair notes for the next day! I can’t think of a better way to spend a month.

    Ed: And the new piercing – tell us about that?

    J: Well you know Gucci is completely a free spirit animal, a rebel, and I am learning so much from her about the human spirit and bravery. Like we say, you can see floods and and typhoons and critical illness and wars on the tv at the airport, but, all that’s temporary – what about the human spirit that has a forever timeline trying to make it day after day in LA? That’s a whole other level of strength and focus and we’re working on understanding how that works. The piercing was totally about, “Are you brave? Are you Navy Seal brave? Can you do this without mojitos?” And yes, I was and I really feel good and more complete now because every day I can see it and know what I went through for it, and how I was strong for like eight years and got even more strong and wise! It’s like my gift to women who have had things to deal with like unflattering press or selling condos you just bought or having to have that talk with your boyfriend’s girlfriend while being like 3000 miles away from your wardrobe. I want them to know they will be fine, so believe!! I am even designing a cool
    PowerGirlForeverStud with Gucci women can get soon. I’m super grateful to Gucci for her support during all this! It’s fun to be growing with my BFFs!

    Ed: Well, we love the new look so far! Glowing, girl!! But speaking of BFF’s, the wedding? Should we be renewing our People subscription?

    J: (laughs) Unfortunately, a spiritual personal grooming experience is more consuming than I knew it would be, so it means I can’t plan my wedding or baby shower right now, but I’ll be in an uplifted place soon! So stay tuned!

    • Josephina says:


      LOL! There’ll be a number of posters here today who will not get what you are saying. Already, quite a few don’t see anything WRONG with a 45 year old actress yammering about her hair cut and posting selfies—BTW, this is her second selfie. Oh, the influence of D-list Justin Theroux.

      So, it’s not enough that the paps put her in the media. No, she wants to ADD more pictures of close-ups of her face!!! Jenny–shallow or vain—nooo, not her. Move over, Demi Moore, Aniston idolizes you and is following your neurotic footsteps.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Oh Lord Liberty–I know I can always count on you!

      My favorite parts:
      “It’s like my gift to women who have had things to deal with like unflattering press or selling condos you just bought or having to have that talk with your boyfriend’s girlfriend while being like 3000 miles away from your wardrobe. I want them to know they will be fine, so believe!!”

      She could’ve had Heidi style her *giggles* for that talk.
      And to get serious for a minute—I still just can’t believe that she isn’t at least called out for being a hypocrite. Let’s move beyond the cheating–but she was mad because Brad/Angelina did that W Photoshoot to promote MAMS months after they separated. But it’s okay, in her mind, to put up those lovey dovey pics, taken by that pervert, less than two weeks after Heidi realized that her boyfriend had gotten himself a sugar mama? Really?

      “E: Well, we love the new look so far! Glowing, girl!! But speaking of BFF’s, the wedding? Should we be renewing our People subscription?

      J: (laughs) Unfortunately, a spiritual personal grooming experience is more consuming than I knew it would be, so it means I can’t plan my wedding or baby shower right now, but I’ll be in an uplifted place soon! So stay tuned!”

      And we all know that they aren’t getting married. Not unless Jennifer thinks she can’t get anyone better, at least pr wise. Why else would she shill her wedding so hard the day after the Oscars (talking about how she–okay, “insider”–has her dress, venue, wedding rings, and date picked out), then when that date comes and goes, puts out another cover saying that she’s putting her wedding off for some reason, because she’s “busy”—then after that acts all confused when people ask her about her wedding, and then complains that people are all up in her business. If she didn’t want speculation, then she should’ve put Huvane on a leash, and/or kept her mouth shut (not that Huvane isn’t my spirit animal—I like that those brothers got each other’s backs).

      But honestly, I am a horrible person for saying this, but I would LOVE to see more speculation on her relationship with Justin. Remember a month or so ago, when those tabloid stories about them not being able to compromise where to live, came out? I want MORE. And if they do break up–I will enjoy it all–all the tabloid covers, the People covers (maybe they’ll have the whole rollout, like when Jennifer and Brad broke up–they had one for their initial separation, one about how they were all friendly towards each other, but going their own way, then Brad was caught w/Angelina on that beach, then the covers kind of morphed into the evolution of Brad/Angelina’s relationship, with the birth announcement, and then Jennifer had one about how she’s dealing with it/her life now), the shade–I wonder how she’ll try and spin it.

      Can’t wait–either way.

      • maggie says:

        Sal she’s about as funny as Chelsie Handler. I don’t care who she’s writing about it’s mean spirited. You think it’s humorous because you have this irrational dislike of JA. Stop insulting me and trolling me on threads. You know nothing of me!

      • Sal says:

        Seriously? You are seriously equating her with Chelsea Handler? Just when I think you Aniston loons can’t get any more irrational and unstable. Seriously. What has Liberty said, that is even *remotely* mean-spirited about Aniston? You cannot name one thing, because you’re lying. You know damn well if Liberty made the same posts about Jolie you’d be +1-ing it. Leave Liberty alone. You are what is mean-spirited. I/we know *that* about you. Its sad your irrational obsession with Aniston makes you this angry over a harmless and witty entry. Maggie don’t tell other posters to quit, then complain when the same is done to you. My hatred of Aniston is not irrational, unlike your hatred of Jolie. Stop bossing others around if you can’t take it back.

      • Sienna says:

        @Maggie: Did she say anything racist or attack children in her comments? No? Then she is not like Chelsea Handler and definitely has the talent to make people laugh (most of us laughed) without insulting anyone.

        PS: So you are all for Chelsea attacking women and children but poor Jennifer has to be left alone? So instead of sounding hypocritical and high school like – best to be silent.

        PPS: Jennifer seriously has a Peter Pan complex and she needs some urgent mental help – maybe her equally weird “fiance” with his own short man syndrome can go to couple’s therapy and grow up and behave like adults in their 40s.

      • Sal says:

        Liberty is certainly more humorous than Aniston, thats for sure, without even trying.

      • Josephina says:

        @ Maggie-

        Aniston is comedy gold, as is any woman who dares to present herself this shallow while being middle-aged. She frequently contradicts herself and forgets what she says to which interviewer.

        It is not Liberty’s fault that Aniston is best known as a celebrity and least known as an actor. Her PR guru Huvane has steered it in that direction and Aniston keeps approving.

        Chelsea is in a troll league all by herself. She uses profanity, makes racist jokes and insults the children of her target. Her personal attacks masked as “jokes” about Angelina Jolie are supported by the CAA agency and Aniston.

        Liberty is sharp, talented and very nimble on her feet to quickly write the prose that gives real light on the core matter: Aniston’s need to be adored by her fans for vanity purposes. Have you also forgotten when she hijacked the People’s magazine cover to dish details of the non-existant plans for the wedding during Oscar week?

        Nor is criticism and ridicule about Aniston’s vanity anything new. You should read the Yahoo website’s response to her “Hairness:” it makes this site seem sympathetic to her non-cause.

        She wants to be A-list but indulges in C/D- List celebrity star pranks/activities. I expect selfies from the Real Housewives Franchise ladies of Bravo TV.

      • maggie says:

        You’re assuming an awful lot Sal. I’m not a fan or hater of anyone. I simply don’t think Liberty is funny. I really try to be objective about celebrities. They dont deserve the hate or idolization that they are given. You on the other hand come off as a little unbalanced. CH isn’t funny. Nor is Liberty.

  25. thinkaboutit says:

    That excuse for the cut is such a blatant lie. The keratin is applied root to tip but it ONLY damaged the bottom few inches? Whatever. If you’ve ever had chemically damaged hair, you know that the worst part of it is those hairs at the crown that break off like 3 inches from the scalp and stick straight up in the air. See Goop’s hair for visual.

    • tracking says:

      So what’s the solution? Shave her head? What a strange comment. I believe she said combo of Brazilian and extensions had damaged her hair. Of course bottom, as most fragile to begin with, would be the worst condition (and the only option for addressing).

      • thinkaboutit says:

        I’m not saying shave her head, I’m saying that if it got effed up by keratin, it would ALL be effed up, not just the ends. My point, which you missed entirely, is that her story is full of holes as usual.

      • thinkaboutit says:

        Also extensions…they do nothing to the ends, but mangle up hair at the roots. Getting a bob was not a solution to the issues she mentions; she just wanted attention. Pathetic.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m going to go with thinkaboutit….I’ve seen how extensions screw up your hair. With what I’ve seen, they start ripping your hair out at the hairline (most noticeable, at least)—remember those pics of Naomi Campbell’s hairline, when she went to the beach? She had a huge chunk of hair, by her ear, missing because of the extensions that she’s had for probably over 20 years.

        I don’t understand why she feels the need to lie about what happened. Or give conflicting statements about it IF she was going to comment at all. It seems so silly.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Tracking, who wrote: ” I believe she said combo of Brazilian and extensions had damaged her hair.”

        Nope, she said she’d tried something new … a Brazilian hair treatment. She didn’t blame the cut on her extensions at all.

    • marina says:

      Meaning maybe she just wanted to cut it and there’s no conspiracy. I must be naive because I really think she just wanted a change. What was her “angle” when she cut her hair in a similar way back when Friends was on?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Then why would she give out two different answers as to why she cut her hair—one was a “because I’m bored and wanted a change” and the other was “my hair was so damaged that I had to cut it.” Which is it?

        Either she’s courting press, by giving two conflicting answers about why OR she realized that it doesn’t sound good that she either doesn’t use her Living Proof hair line, or it she’s making it sound like it doesn’t work. I’d say a little of both–depending on which answer she gave first–bored or damaged.

  26. Eva says:

    Looks to me like she has had her lips plumped.

  27. cnote says:

    This woman is inherently boring.

  28. The Original G says:

    Her hair is fine. Ugh. What a teenager.

    BTW, I have read hairdresser Chris’s comments and her colourists comment. So, a third hairdresser did the Brazilian? Whatever.

  29. Annabell says:

    I see Jen got extensions put back in her hair because in these new pictures her hair is notesly full and longer in the back then the ones from last week. It went from being a thin asymmetrical bob last week to being a regular bob this week.

    My guess why

    A ) she/her PR person read the comments on the blogs and saw that most people didn’t like it.

    B ) It was bad PR for her hair care line Living Proof.

    C ) so when she put back the full length extensions she can claim how Living Proof saved the day.

    D ) All of the Above

  30. Ag says:

    Meh. It’s hair. It’ll grow back. That’s what hair does. To really make herself newsworthy, she should try making something other than a shitty rom-com.

    • Josephina says:

      Girl’s gotta eat her chicken salad and get her hair did. Her vanity knows no limits.

      She does not have anything lined up for a while. How do you propose she will stay relevant? She does not want go to stay in NYC and be with her man (she probably makes him fly back to LA to see her.)

      To her a disaster is not the typhoon occurrence in the Phillipines, it’s the straggly ends that do not mix well with her extensions.

  31. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    This is the same woman who was always known for how amazing her hair was, but then it was last year or so (when she was shilling the Living Proof Line) that she admitted that she had had extensions in her hair for years–and it was ripping her hair out.

    And I’m not surprised that she put these selfies up—whatever the reason was that she cut her hair (which I can’t even really remember the other one–she said because she was bored???, before/after she said the bit about the Brazilian Blowout), in the pics at Popsugar, she looked pissed off beyond belief.

    Also, where’s Justin???? He’s not still filming, is he? I doubt that they’ll get married, not with how hard Jennifer’s been pushing the wedding, via People, and then claiming that she has no idea when they’ll get married.

  32. Elizabeth says:

    Ever since her wedding “wasn’t cancelled” she seems to be going thru a weird mid-life crisis. She should do some charity work instead of obsessing about her hair and dressing like she’s still 25.

  33. Lr says:

    How pathetic to be almost 45 and the most interesting thing in your life for people to talk about is your hair! Hair this, hair that, throw in some yoga and Mexico and that about sums up her life.

    She probably had him post this pic because she was so mad about those pap pics!

    Also, did she cut her hair b/c of the bad treatment or did she cut it b/c she was bored of it?? Can’t keep up with her stories.

    And who does an interview about their hair????
    Most other women in Hollywood have better things to talk about in their lives.

  34. Layla says:

    She’ll probably have the extensions back in in no time. Her hair is like a security blanket she uses to hide half her face.

    And how can she have fans?

    Can her fans name 5 unique and interesting things about her or that she does? I sure can’t.

    • Lisa says:

      A poster above pointed out that she did put some of her extensions back in. I compared the two pictures and thier is a notable difference.

      For one her hair was a lot thinner and shorter in the back last week. This week her hair is much fuller and has a even length from the front to the back , it also longer then it was last week.

      @ Annabell I vote for D) all over the above.

  35. CC says:

    Heads up. Lil’ Typo:

    While you’d think Aniston would be old enough to know that she should put formaldehyde on her hair (WTF!)

    Should – Shouldn’t.

  37. sashavice says:

    Her hair has looked the same for at least ten years now. The only time it was truly different was during her Leprechaun days.

  38. MaJolie says:

    I have very curly, frizzy at times hair. I have had several Brazilian blow-outs and would not say this is a “hard core” straightener at all. It’s not even permanent. Lasts about 3 – 4 months on my hair. Also, I am not an Aniston fan but most definitely a fan of Living Proof. If you have frizzy hair and use it, the stuff works . . . period. Better than anything else I tried. Just because she is getting these Brazilian blow-outs does not mean Living Proof doesn’t work. These keratin/formaldehyde treatments (and most now a days use very little formaldehyde) semi-straighten my hair and cut the time it takes to flat iron it in half. Living Proof is meant to control frizz. I think someone who wanted to keep their curls but not have the frizz would go with Living Proof. Someone who wanted to go with straight or straighter hair would go for the Brazilian.

  39. Maggie says:

    I thought Brazillian had something to do with one’s crotch, re: removal of pubic hair.

  40. Coco says:

    She should stop smoking . Her skin is terrible.

  41. Carolyn says:

    Aniston is so vapid & boring that Huvane is sticking to “hairstyle Jen” to gain PR coverage. Zzzzz.

    Focus on the fakery with her “promoting” a natural haircare line when she chemically trashes her hair instead. Gotcha!

  42. KellyinSeattle says:

    I don’t see that much of a change…but, yawn. She just seems so shallow….does she have insurance on her hair? Probably. Now if Justin (Squiggy) could do something about his greasy hair…

  43. Claudia says:

    I don’t think the Living Proof thing is so weird. I have products I swear by that make a difference (in skin care, because my hair is still a mess…), yet I still like to try new products and play around with other brands/lines/whatever… sometimes to my detriment, as I have highly sensitive skin. I always end up going back to those swear-by products, but I know I’ll continue to experiment with other products. I would hazard to guess most people do that too. No scandal there.

  44. Fan says:

    When it comes to hair, she can do no wrong.

  45. Lucky Charm says:

    44 years old and posting selfies of her “new” cut & color and cartilage piercing…that’s something a 19 or 20 year old does, not a grown adult woman. And no one on the A or B list goes around giving interviews about their haircut! Although maybe the reason for getting it really is all three answers she gave: She was bored, so got a Brazilan which damaged it, so she looked through Vogue magazine to find a cut she liked. And Living Proof will fix it all – reverse the damage from the Brazilian, make it grow longer and erase boredom!

  46. lisa2 says:

    I think I notice this some time ago.. but she and Chris could be brother and sister. They have very similar features. Nose, lips, jawline.

    Since she is unavoidable hehe I love ANYTHING different from the same hairstyle we have seen her sporting for ages.
    So, this cut is amazing! and refreshing!

  48. nellie says:

  49. Size Does Matter says:

    What woman in America cuts off half of her hair BEFORE the wedding? It’s not going to happen.

    I think it looks cute, though, and I agree it is sad there doesn’t seem to be more substance to this woman. She could do so much good with her resources.
