‘Love it!’ Jennifer Aniston responds to Mariah Carey’s’ sad attempt ‘to try on’ The Rachel ‘haircut in the’ 90s … while singer posts a flashback snap after Friends: The Reunion
It was the defining ’90s hairstyle that proved outrageously popular with fans of the TV show Friends – and even Mariah Carey.
On Friday, after Friends: The Reunion on HBO Max, Mariah revealed that she had also tried her hand at ‘The Rachel’ – a cut named after Jennifer Aniston’s signature hairstyle as Rachel Karen Green’s character.
‘A sad attempt at the Rachel haircut,’ Mariah joked to her followers on Friday, posting a flashback Friday with a similar-looking ‘do.
But seemingly impressed was none other than Jennifer herself, who commented on this photo ‘LOVE IT’ alongside a flame emoji.

She approves! Jennifer Aniston saw Mariah’s message and promptly responded to it saying she loved it, adding a flame emoji on Friday
It seems that in the mid-1990s, Mariah was one of many women who besieged salons with pictures of Aniston in character to copy her hairstyle.
Despite complimenting Mariah on the cut, Jen has previously said she wasn’t a fan of the iconic style.
The 52-year-old admitted to American magazine Allure years ago that the style was not her best look.

How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen, ‘she said in 2011.’ What I really want to know is, How did that thing have legs? ‘
The cut was originally created by Aniston’s longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan, who still works with her today.
“I love Chris, but he’s the bane of my existence because he started that damn Rachel,” said the actress.
However, she confessed that in recent years she has gotten better at styling her own locks, rather than having it done for her.
“He thinks I’m a tailor,” she joked, “I’ll just take the hair dryer out of his hands.
“He’s killing me for saying this, but I’ve outdone him in that department. I am faster with the hair dryer. ‘
