While we all know better, at one point or another, there comes a time when we get the urge to cut our own hair, even to our hairstylist’s dismay. Even Jennifer Aniston, who has notoriously fabulous hair (and a hairstyle named after her most famous on-screen TV character), has even given into the temptation and cut and dyed her mane on her own. Celebrities, they’re just like us!
The actress revealed in a new interview with The Cut that she once cut and dyed her beautiful locks in high school. “I did the boysenberry purple, which then turned into this awful copper-red color over time. I would do it myself,” she said. “Then I cut my hair really short and I shaved it on the sides. I do not have a face for any of that.”
The Friends star revealed, “I just stick with what works; if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it,” announcing that this summer she would be wearing her hair more curly. To further care for her sun-kissed ‘bronde’ locks, she has created her own haircare line, LolaVie.
In the same interview, the famous salad recipe that she allegedly ate on the set of Friends was also addressed. The ingredients being: bulgur, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, and pistachio.
Somehow, the salad recipe went viral earlier this year but now, Aniston is setting the record straight, explaining to the outlet that the salad recipe is all wrong.
“So sad to break it to you: There’s no truth to that particular salad, but it sounds delicious,” she said.
She continued to say, “It actually reminds me of a salad that I had many years ago that my girl made for me, but it had quinoa. It wasn’t bulgur. It was not what I had on Friends. That was a chopped salad that was not as exciting as the salad recipe you just read to me.”
Aniston also gave her fans a pro tip for salad making, saying, “You also can put the collagen powder into a salad dressing.” (She reps Vital Proteins.)
For a woman whose photo has been used so many times for reference at the hair salon, it is comforting to know that she too, has made some hair mistakes in her past.
