Almost 20 years after it took women's scalps by storm, Jennifer Aniston is finally ready to talk about her infamous Friends haircut, the "Rachel" (she has a new web series and hair care line to promote, according to E!). But the big revelation is not that she was never a fan—she told Allure that it was "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen" two years ago. It's that her stylist, Chris McMillan, created the haircut while stoned. "I’m 14 years sober, so I feel safe enough to say that," he told Women's Wear Daily. For her part, Aniston seems to have mellowed on the 'do. "It's honestly never been a big deal to me," she says on her new web show, among other profound hair-based insights, such as, "I think good hair days matter to women because we're women. And, y'know. I don't know how to explain what that is." (More Jennifer Aniston stories.)
