Breaking News: Jennifer Aniston has new hair
Wed, 23 February 2011 11:01AM
And by new hair, I actually mean a hot new Lob and striking new colour. Hooray! It’s a day I have been dreaming about for years, Primpers. The day I walk into work and discover Jennifer Aniston has cut and coloured her hair. It’s only taken the lovely little Jen about ten years, but hey, it was worth the wait.
Here’s her sexy new haircut and colour…
Following the likes of Olivia Palermo, Chloe Sevigny, January Jones and, erm, myself, Jen has chopped her hair into one of the most popular styles of the season – the Lob. So popular is this sexy little shag, that we’ve dedicated an entire story to it in our upcoming Look Book, which will be hitting David Jones stores nationally on the 1st of March. Weee!
But back to Jen and her breaking news, which was revealed at the premiere of her new movie ‘Just Go With It’ featuring funny man Adam Sandler while in Madrid. Gosh I love it when celebs have new movies out, it’s the perfect opportunity for them to make a statement with fresh new looks and generally awesome changes. Like Jen here.
I have to say, Primpers, I absolutely love this look on Jen. Maybe it’s because it looks great, or maybe it’s because it’s different and even if it didn’t look great I’d still be applauding her for mixing things up a bit. Either way, I think it’s glorious. Absolutely glorious.
The collarbone-skimming length is super flattering on everyone. Plus, I like that she’s taken the colour a lot lighter, Primpers – it suits her skintone. And, here’s the beauty of the Lob, it’s a universally flattering hairstyle that will suit you, and you and yes, even YOU. Plus, it’s much easier to style than anything longer, yet due to its ability to be tied back, bad hair days can be disguised with an updo if need be. Winner!
If you too are wanting to crawl out of your Jeniston rut, may I suggest recreating this hairstyle by following a few of these handy tips provided by Sydney-based hairstylist, Barney Martin…
1. Chat to your hairstylist about the right length for you. In Jen’s case, it sits just above her shoulders almost skimming her collar-bone, but if you want to show off your neck a little more, take the length up just a tad.
2. Fine haired Primpers be warned, you don’t want to create too many layers as it will make styling you Lob harder. Instead, tell your stylist to give you longer layers that will soften the ends.
3. If, like me, you have wavy hair, keep the layers longer so they weigh the hair down, rather than make it go ‘out’.
4. Fringe lovers, you should stick to a choppy number that skims your brow, rather than anything too harsh or blunt.
Well Jen, high five to you! You made the change we’ve all be begging for and it looks splendid. Absolutely splendid. Don’t you think, Primpers?
What do you think of Jen’s new hair?
Do you like it?
Do you want to get it?
Do you think it will take off like ‘The Rachel’?
