Movie star got 'bored' of long locks

Jennifer Aniston has unveiled a dramatic new bob hairdo.

The actress, who’s famed for her sleek long tresses, showed off her shorn locks as she stepped out in Los Angeles on Monday.

Jen’s hair stylist and good friend Chris McMillan created the shock new look last week and the Hollywood star is enjoying the change.

It was kind of spur-of-the-moment,’ Jen, 44, tells Vogue.com.

I was flipping through the television channels and I paused it to take a picture and I sent it to Chris, and he said, “That’s [stylist] Lawren Howell from Vogue!”

And then he said, “I just cut that!” So that’s it. He went way shorter than hers, but she was the inspiration.

I feel great. I feel lighter. It’s simple, it’s really simple, that’s for sure. And I just got bored, honestly. It’s fun to change it up once in awhile.’

Even though Jen’s happy with her bob, she admits that it was partly done out of necessity after her locks became heavily damaged by Brazilian blow-dries.

Speaking to ELLEUK.com, Jen reveals: 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.

It’s about 2 inches above my shoulders now. [But] the minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It’s a guarantee.

I’m trying really hard to love this one.’
