Jennifer Aniston may have some of the most envied hair in Hollywood, but the actress herself once had a hair crush of her own. "I've been that person who brought in a picture to a salon. Mine was Valerie Bertinelli from One Day at a Time," she says. "She had that full Farrah Fawcett hair. I didn't come out with that, not even close."As the spokeswoman for Living Proof, Jennifer recently talked to us about her best hair moments (not the "Rachel"), the biggest styling mistake she ever made, and the women in Hollywood who inspire her beauty-wise. Plus, her longtime stylist reveals what's next for her famous mane. Read it all and more after the jump.
Jennifer Aniston stepped out in NYC to launch her new Living Proof web series, Good Hair Day, yesterday. She's a spokesperson for — and an investor in — the brand and is taking her duties to the next level with her three-part web series, in which she joins experts, including her hairstylist Chris McMillan, and real-life women on the street to talk hair. In a teaser video for the series, Jennifer explains why the cause is important to her, stating, "Good hair days matter to women because . . . we're women." The first episode, "Obsessions," airs today with two more, titled "Confessions" and "Lessons," being released later this month.
We caught up with Jen and Chris at yesterday's press day. During our chat with Jen, she reflected on what she's learned about hair over the years. She said, "I had great hair as a kid, and my mum said, 'You're not allowed to touch your hair until you're 13,' and the first thing I did was cut it all off. I learned that my hair really was a pain in the butt — sort of wide and unmanageable. I learned all my lessons in my younger years of what not to do."

Between being named the new face of Aveeno, becoming co-owner of Living Proof, and also having time for a day job, acting, Jennifer Aniston is one busy woman. As her ad campaign for Living Proof starts to make its debut (shown above) in the March issues of magazines at newsagents now, Jennifer gets candid about the importance of a good hair day.
"For me and a lot of girls, hair is a big deal," she told WWD. "There are a lot of greater trials of the world, but ask any girl — it's one of those boxes you check off. If that means having a better hair day, that goes a long way." Considering Jennifer's hair has been a hot topic since her Rachel days on Friends, partnering with a brand devoted to good hair makes a lot of sense. Keep reading . . .
For nearly two decades, Jennifer Aniston has had some of Hollywood's most envied hair. Now she's investing in it — literally — through a new partnership with popular US hair brand Living Proof. The actress will take the title of co-owner and hair care spokesperson for the brand. "What caught my attention about Living Proof is the company's unique approach to hair care — using scientific technologies to offer women actual proof in a bottle rather than hoping for results," she said in a press statement. "My hair has taken a serious beating. After using these products, I felt like I finally discovered a solution that works every day." Jennifer won't be a silent partner in this business venture. Her responsibilities for the brand will include working with stylists and scientists to create new products, developing the Living Proof brand, and marketing. Now you can add hair care innovator to the long list of Jennifer's recent roles.

Boxing Day is one of those days where you don't know what to do with yourself. Stuffed with seafood, too old to have presents to 'play' with, its sole purpose is to start off the chain of days where nobody has any idea what date it is. But now it does have a purpose. Because there's a new haircare range that launches TODAY that people with fine, limp hair are gonna want to know about: Living Proof Full. (Can you tell it's made by scientists? They're very straightforward and to-the-point with their product names aren't they?)
So, the jist is that for fine hair to be fuller, it needs to be cleansed without being stripped, and conditioned without being weighed down. Sounds simple. Really not. But the scientists behind the brand have found three things that work together to do just that. They have names like decyl glucoside and other words that I frankly cannot spell/say so I'm going to leave it at it works. We know because we asked Fine-Haired Person #385 to test it:
