Jennifer Aniston chopped off her long locks because she was "bored."
The We're the Millers actress debuted a chic blonde bob on Monday while running errands in Los Angeles, which came as a surprise after years of wearing her trademark honey-colored hair down past her shoulders.
She told Vogue magazine the radical change was a spur-of-the-moment decision, saying, "I'm always one of those girls who does a big old chop just to get it really healthy, to repair all the [damage from] hair coloring and stuff like that. And I just got bored, honestly. It's fun to change it up once in awhile."
The We're The Millers actress also revealed her transformation was the result of her addiction to Brazilian blow dries, which use a combination of formaldehyde and keratin to keep locks straight for up to three months. Before stepping out in public with her shorter cut, Jennifer explained to Elle magazine, "It wasn't for a role. My hair went through a phase - this thing called a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it."

Erin O'Connor only became a successful model after cutting off all her hair.
The 32-year-old beauty says she wasn't getting very many jobs when she first started out in the industry because she looked so similar to the other girls, so took advice and chopped off her long locks.
"When I first began modeling I was very conventional looking - I had hair down to my waist. I went on a photo shoot and a make-up artist told me 'You need to cut off your hair - it's doing you no favors. If you do that we'll see you.' A new identity was born for me - quite tough, quite unapologetic but definitely there."
Erin recently revealed she has no plans to retire from the catwalk, despite being one of the more older models. "I hate that idea of retirement or 'You're past your sell-by-date.' That is very odd, because, for me, it is about moving, showcasing and being an outrageous poser. You'd think after 15 years I would be bored, but I'm not. The catwalk is like liberation, because there is a bit of performance involved, a bit of skill thrown in, so it doesn't matter what age you are."
Amber Le Bon wants to shave her head.
The 21-year-old model admits she is desperate to lose her long brunette locks in favour of a buzz cut - which has previously been sported by Agyness Deyn, Britney Spears and Natalie Portman - but is unable to do so because she is currently under contract: “I so want to shave my head. Unfortunately I can’t at the moment because of all my modeling contracts - I’m not allowed to change anything about my appearance, but I am determined to do it by the time I am 27.”
Amber’s eccentric hairstyle wishes don’t end there, and the model, who is the daughter of Simon and Yasmin Le Bon, admits she is also tempted to dye it a “peach melba” color.
“I’d love to dye it pink - well, a peach melba color - and cut it shorter, but again, I can’t do that, contractually, which is frustrating.”
Amber’s mother recently admitted she is thrilled her daughter is following her into modeling, and believes she will go far because she is so “humble.”
