Jennifer Aniston’s New Dramatic Haircut 2013 (and what to ask for if you want it!)

Everyone’s favorite hair looks drastically different! Jennifer Aniston made a major chop to her hair (it also looks lighter!).

I asked Jordana Lorraine to give her professional opinion about the new look.  She stated, “Wow! A big change for Jennifer Aniston. She wore a similar cut several years ago, and it’s as chic now as it was then. I can’t wait to see it freshly washed and styled! Will she stick with it, like Jennifer Hudson? Or go back to long (with extensions) like Beyonce?”

“I was just ready for a change,” Aniston, 44, tells Pop Sugar. “I was ready for something new, to get it out of my face, so I could have a bit of an easier go at it.” Jennifer also told ELLE UK that she had a “Brazilian treatment” that damaged her hair. No specific treatment was named. My husband commented that she should have gone to Jordana Lorraine for her treatment!

Check out these exclusive pictures of Jennifer’s new haircut on Pop Sugar.

If you are loving it and ready for a change yourself, Jen’s stylist, Chris McMillian, says to ask for an an A-line bob, but with no hard edges.  He also states that the cut works on all hair types.  Read more on

Regarding the new color, Michael Canalé, Jennifer’s colorist dished on what was done to revive Aniston’s color.  While Michael has been coloring Jen’s hair since her debut on Friends in the early 90’s, this particular cut called for a new method:

  • First, I had to remove the warm colors from the top section of her hair, and I really made a point to emphasize extra blonde around her face and along the sides, about a quarter inch in from the hairline so it blended fluently with the rest of her hair.
  • To maintain femininity and accentuate her natural beauty, we went for more of a baby blonde color as opposed to the sandy blonde color that she came in with.
  • I recommend paper-thin highlights all-over, which add a gorgeous, natural-looking sheen, and it also ensures you aren’t over-bleaching hair that’s already parched.

As with any long-lasting hair treatment, make sure to regularly deep-condition your hair to offset any chance of damage while protecting and moisturizing it. Michael recommends a deep conditioning treatment like Shu Uemura Art of Hair Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Treatment (SRP $68).

What do you think of Jen’s new cut? Are you inspired or not feeling it?

  1. I really don’t see much change, She has it straighter and a bit lighter, but I wouldn’t look at those pics and think, “Wow, she changed her hair!”. It’s still the basic longish layer cut she’s always had. Quite frankly, she really DOES need to change her look, it’s been virtually the same for the past 10 years.

  2. Excuse me…I just viewed the Pop Sugar photos and she looks a haggy mess! Which hair style IS the new one?

  3. @Judy the Popsugar image is the new cut. They had exclusive rights to those photos so I had to redirect you there. I see the images are all over the web now…. She does look like she needs to wash her hair. Can’t wait to see it properly styled!
