For her new role as a traveling saleswoman in the film Management, which hits theaters today, Jennifer Aniston trades her famous head of perfectly tousled hair for a darker auburn bob that’s a distinctive departure from her signature relaxed glamour. “She wanted to look very different,” says Melissa A. Yonkey, her hairstylist on the film, “but didn’t want to cut or dye her hair.” Jen’s solution? A $10,000 custom wig created by her offscreen hair guru Chris McMillan. “The color was very complimentary on her. She’s got wonderful warm skin,” says Yonkey. And the new look was all for the sake of art. “With that blond hair, she’s very known as Jennifer Aniston.” says Yonkey, “and I think sometimes that takes away from watching the story”. But don’t think the hairstylist wasn’t at least a little worried about taking style risks with one of America’s most famous movie stars. “I was actually very, very concerned,” she says. “She’s so well-known for her hair that I was waiting for a lot of backlash. But I haven’t had it yet.” Tell us: What do you think of Jennifer’s onscreen hair?Reporting by Nicholas White

Her signature “blonde” hair is all she has going for her so I”m guessing making even a haircolor change is considered radical in her world…where she also thinks she is a good actress

I think she should cut and colour her hair darker – makes her eyes stand out!

WOAH! Does she ever look like Kate Walsh!

The question was how do you like her hair, not how pretty or her about her acting abilities. All of you that were mean probably have your own insecurites and you put people down to make yourself feel better. Karma will get you!

I like watching Jen and think she is a very
pretty woman. What’s up with printing what
is spent on her hair all the time? I don’t
think I have ever seen what the other stars
spend for their clothes, hair and movie expenses,
if you are going to do it for one, then lets
see it for everyone. I would bet she spends
less than almost anyone in Hollywood. None of
her movies have cost huge amounts like some of
them do.

I think her acting is great…and that this new look is a nice change.

Looks doesn’t matter as long as she is not hurting anyone and she’s doing a great job.
