Jennifer Aniston: We All Want Somebody Else's Hair

We’d have thought Jennifer Aniston could do pretty much anything with her hair, but it turns out even the world’s most enviable mane has its limits.

“We all want somebody else’s hair,” Aniston told PEOPLE at an N.Y.C. Living Proof event, citing Gisele Bündchen as the star whose tresses she envies, and adding “I also love Kate Moss‘s hair. It’s that rolled-out-of-bed look. Somehow she can wear a couture dress and just have that. I’ve tried to do that but it doesn’t work.”

Aniston adds that no matter how many times she asks her longtime stylist Chris McMillan to give her that hair, “he’ll do whatever he wants to do.” That’s why — even though she takes care of it with Living Proof’s Restore mask, and she’ll go anywhere to get it washed — only McMillan is allowed to go near it with scissors.

And we can’t say that we blame her for being a little paranoid, considering some of the past disasters she tells us she’s had to contend with. As a kid, “I’d only had mullets! Or those haircuts when you were a kid and you’d get those crazy, like, long at the front and shaved at the back,” she says. “Oh, I just learned so many lessons from my youth of what not to do.”

So that’s why she’s bringing her “Good Hair” Living Proof webisodes (which feature McMillan and girls on the street expounding on hair philosophy) to the masses. It’s all about learning from your mistakes and working with what you have, which is what, as the co-owner of the haircare line, she wants to communicate to women.

“Those girls are adorable and they’ve gotta get better perspective on their hair because they don’t have horrible hair,” Aniston says of the girls in the video series. “It’s so interesting how girls have the wrong perception of themselves.”

Watch the video below, then tell us: Whose hair do you covet? What’s your biggest hair disaster?

I don’t envy her hair. I think flat and stringy is not very attractive at all and it has been the same for years. The best hair ever was Farrah Fawcett!

I wish she would go darker, her hair gets a little brassy (I’m not sure if it’s a word) but just live her a little warmer or a little darker.

But the top photo she looks a little like Helen Mirren.

I’m still perplexed how Jennifer Aniston is STILL known for her “great hair.” She had ONE haircut almost 20 years ago that people liked. Ever since its just…straight. There are a million people in and out of Hollywood that have nicer looking straight (or otherwise) hair, IMO. Not being rude about her, I like Jen, I just don’t get it. To me her hair looks over processed and stringy a lot of the time…certainly not amazing like People is saying. Oh well.

Jen is so right! If we have straight hair…..we want curls and etc… I have permed my for years and finally have decided I am ok with my straight boring hair! lol. My friends with curls take the iron to their hair….. I like Jen’s dress too. She has gorgeous hair.

Jen needs professsionls on her all the time head to toe, still an attractive woman though.

There are people who smoke that can accommodate
substantial quantities of foods and then there are these scaled
down models that can tackle a person or two meals at a time.
But also what’s more astounding to build use of when holding a cookout, is a completely transportable bbq. The Great Outdoors Gas Smoker This barbecue smoker is of a rectangular vault, oven design, and comes with two oven style cooking grids, a water pan for steaming, and a fully adjustable damper to ensure optimal cooking performance.
