Jennifer Aniston's California Babysitter Replaces The Rachel

We are familiar with Jennifer Aniston's hairstyle on the sitcom Friends. "The Rachel" led to an explosive hair trend, driving women all over the world to ask hairstylists for short, swingy layers.

And then came the backlash. Both Jennifer and her longtime hairstylist, Chris McMillan, recently scoffed at the style, telling People it's "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen." 
While she has worn the same straight, caramel look for years, Chris just gave it a proper name: California Babysitter. "It’s just good, sexy hair. Jen wanted to feel good and look her best – this is one of her favorite hair styles."

“I like to call it California Babysitter hair. It’s that hair that I always thought was cool when the sitter came over,” Chris McMillan says. 

To get the look, Chris washes Jennifer's hair with Living Proof Full Shampoo & Conditioner, then applies Living Proof Full Mousse to wet hair. He massages it through for added volume around the crown. Then he mists Living Proof No Frizz Weightless Styling Spray onto the hair to keep it looking smooth and healthy looking. Finally, using a large round brush, he blows out the hair straight with a deep, side bang and applies Living Proof Amp to give the look texture and definition.

Based on the already long run of this trend, I'd say the California Babysitter has more stamina than The Rachel.
