It’s been so long since 1995, and somehow we still sit up and pay attention any time Jennifer Aniston gets her hair cut. And her new Jennifer Aniston haircut surprised us all by being really very short. She’s had her long, straight, shiny hair for so long we thought this might be the cut she decided to stick with forever, but last week she had it all chopped off at the jawline by BFF and hairstylist Chris McMillan.

“Chris just chopped it all off, so now it’s just sort of there,” she told Popsugar. “It’s short! It’s at my jawline and a little shorter in the back. It’s just choppy, like a choppy bob, I guess you could say.”

And today Popsugar caught sight of Aniston rocking her new short haircut at the airport, and we think it looks awesome.

Speaking of 90s hair icons, Aniston looks kind of like Kurt Cobain here, and that’s awesome. With the choppy, grungy hair, aviator glasses, and oversized jacket, she looks more like a cool rockstar than a pretty Hollywood actress, and we mean that in the best possible way.

Over the weekend Aniston told Elle UK the haircut had happened and was inspired by necessity, as she’d decided to cut off all her hair after a bad reaction to a Brazilian blowout.

“It wasn’t for a role. My hair went through a phase – I did this thing called a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it,” she said. “It’s about 2-inches above my shoulders now.”

Well we love it, but Aniston is apparently not so sold yet.

“The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It’s a guarantee,” she told Elle. “I’m trying really hard to love this one.”
