You'd have thought she invented layering. Rachel Green, the sexy, spoiled sweetheart played by Jennifer Aniston on "Friends," wore her hair in a rounded, face-framing, smooth and straight cut that was such a hit with viewers, women started walking into salons and asking for "The Rachel."

She was one of those intentionally fashionable characters, with a bit of a shopping problem and, ultimately, a job with Ralph Lauren. Her hairstyle was, therefore, deeply fashionable from the outset. And to its credit, it was also a pretty unique one at the time. It became Rachel's signature and one of the most popular haircuts in the country, and possibly beyond, during the "Friends" years.

That it was great-looking at the time probably didn't matter. Women would have followed Rachel off a fashion cliff, singing the "Friends" theme.
