When Jennifer Aniston first sported the iconic haircut “The Rachel,” named after her character on Friends, it took over the ’90s. Everyone was running out to the salon and asking their hairstylist to give them the shoulder-length chop. And what is old will always be new again, as the cute cut is back, but with an updated take for 2022.

The bouncy, flippy “Rachel” haircut is now a bit more full and shaggy this year, and of course, some curtain bangs are a fun twist that make the chop feel a bit more modern. If you’re looking for hair inspo, try this flippy “Rachel” chop similar to model Gianna Schiller, whose layered cut feels fresh and fun.
