The Roots of "The Rachel"
The 1970s had Farrah Fawcett's feathered flip. The 1980s had Madonna's wave-making bows. And the 1990s had "The Rachel," the shag sported by Jennifer Aniston's character on the hit sitcom Friends. Her hairstylist Chris McMillan created the look that not only stuck with Rachel Green for two seasons, but also left an impression on the thousands of women who tried to emulate it. But on Tuesday, Aniston put a crimp in the beloved style when she cited the style as a moment she'd "rather not re-live" to Allure magazine. The actress continued: "I love Chris [McMillan, her hairstylist], and he's the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look. How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen. What I really want to know is, how did that thing have legs?"
