Jennifer Aniston Celebrates Returning To ‘The Morning Show’ With A Fresh New Hair Colour

We spoke to an expert on how to get the look for youself

She may have appeared on one of the most adored sitcoms of all time, but Jennifer Aniston will forever be remembered for her iconic hair. The actress and her sandy blonde tresses have been making headlines since the early ’90s, when the fashionable Rachel Green burst onto our screens in Friends. 

Returning to work on the Apple TV+ series, The Morning Showalongside Reese Witherspoon, Aniston posted a series of selfies alongside longtime hairstylist and friend Chris McMillan—the very same behind Aniston’s iconic ‘Rachel’ cut. And it shows that the actress is making a big change for season two: adding buttery-blonde highlights. 

“Aaand, we’re back… 🤩🎬,” the actress captioned the pics showing off her new hair, with Witherspoon commenting underneath, “YES WE ARE!! 💕”. 

Aurore Lopez, Advanced Stylist at Franck Provost Paddington, broke down exactly how to emulate the blonde refresh.

“To achieve this look, Jen’s hairdressers did some buttery-blonde babylights all over to lighten the colour and avoid having an obvious regrowth on the top,” explains Gaysott. “To enhance and soften the facial features, they added some face-framing foils which result in a very natural, effortless look.” 

Gaysott recommends having this done every three to four months, alongside a toner treatment in between, to keep the “beautiful, stunning shine.” 

“Franck Provost highly recommends a weekly in-salon treatment for softer, shinier, healthier hair—like we needed an excuse to indulge in their divine head massage more often!”, adds Gaysott, adding the salon’s signature *DIAMOND* service combines a toner and mask to help keep your balayage and colour fresh for longer.

Fans will be happy to see Aniston and Witherspoon have returned to filming the hugely popular series, which saw its season one finale air in December 2019. “There is something about how the show works, and it’s now been made very clear, at least for the for the first two seasons” Aniston told Deadline in August 2020 about the upcoming storylines. “We had a good portion of season one outlined-ish. And you know, we were still dealing with the human ills, racism, inequality, ageism, and the feuds that go on behind the scenes of these mom-and-pops that we see every morning, but then #MeToo happened.”

She continued, “So then that was another layer to the cake that had to be added into the whole story, and it just made it that much more exciting and current. So, for season two, the same thing. We had a good six or maybe seven outlines already done, and we were in the middle of shooting [episodes] one and two. And then there was just this feeling, and I couldn’t put my finger on it, and the producers couldn’t put their finger on it, but it was like something’s missing and I don’t know what it is. And then the COVID crisis happened.”

Recently, it was just announced that The Good Wife‘s Julianna Margulies, a 10-time Emmy-nominated actress, will be joining the all-star cast as Laura Peterson, an anchor at UBA News.
