Jennifer Aniston is definitely a creature of habit when it comes to her style – the endless LBDs, the poker straight locks – so you can imagine our (and the rest of the world’s) surprise when she unveiled a dramatic new look today. Gone is the chest-length golden hair, replaced instead with a choppy, chin-grazing graduated bob and accessorised with a 90’s style upper ear piercing. Yes, really!
The actress embraced her grungy side with celeb make-up artist pal Gucci Westman, who shared a snap of their matching piercings on Instagram with the caption: ‘Me and #jenniferaniston got our ears pierced today!!! #memories.’
So what sparked the overhaul? Well, it turns out that just like us mere mortals, Jen’s tresses couldn’t take the pressure of everyday straightening. That, and boredom! ‘I’m always one of those girls who does a big old chop just to get it really healthy, to repair all the [damage from] hair coloring and stuff like that’ said Jen. ‘And I just got bored, honestly. It’s fun to change it up once in a while.’
We’re liking the style shake-up Jen, but maybe stop there with the piercings eh? We’re not sure a nose ring would look so good on that hotly-anticpated wedding day.
