It was smooth, full-bodied and almost as much of a '90s sensation as "Friends" itself, but Jennifer Aniston never cared for the haircut that became her signature look on that hit sitcom.
"I was not a fan of 'The Rachel,'" she told Glamour magazine. "That was kind of cringe-y for me."

As for why she didn't care for the 'do that so many other women wanted, Aniston revealed that it was just too hard to maintain without professional help.
"Looking back — honestly, even during that time — I couldn’t do it on my own," she said of the style. "I needed [my hairstylist] Chris [McMillan] attached to my hip. Left to my own devices, I am not skilled with a hairbrush and blow dryer."
Well, that was one reason she didn't like it. In a 2011 interview with Allure magazine, she was a bit more direct.
"I think it was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen," she said.
And in 2013, when the radio hosts of "The Kyle and Jackie O Show" asked Aniston if she'd rather shave her head one time or wear "The Rachel" for the rest of her life, she didn't hesitate with her answer.
"Shave my hair once, definitely!" she said.
So what look does she really like?
"Long, natural-looking beachy waves," she told Glamour. "That feels most like me."
