One of the sexiest photos of Jennifer Aniston, this one shows off the haircut she would wear for much of the next decade: flat-ironed, long with a very few face-framing layers and the perfect color that's not entirely all blonde, yet not totally brunette either, a color we'd dub in 2009 as "Bronde".

Jennifer Aniston wore her long hair curly to the 2002 Emmy Awards, during which she won Best Actress in a Comedy. She has rarely worn her hair this curled. When she does wear her hair wavy, it's much more "beachy" than curly.

With her divorce from Brad Pitt finalized on October 2, Jennifer Aniston stepped out on October 30 looking ravishing. But of the many pictures of her taken on this day, this was only 1 of a few that showed her smiling. Still, she looks beautiful.

I love these beachy waves in this picture taken just a few weeks (or perhaps even days) before she cut her hair to her shoulders.

Jennifer Aniston's Long Bob Hairstyle: Early 2011

In early 2011 Jennifer Aniston stepped out with a long bob (or "lob") hairstyle and wowed the world. A super flattering length, Aniston's long bob is slightly shorter in the back and tapers to the front. This isn't the first time she cut her long hair off, the last time she debuted a short 'do was in late 2000, just after her summer nuptials to Brad Pitt.
