A generation of women crowed about Jennifer Aniston’s hair back in the days when she was on NBC’s Friends. Now Aniston is hoping her hair still looks good enough to inspire the buying habits of another generation. "I used to bring a picture of Valerie Bertinelli with me to my hairdresser to get that look,” Aniston told ModernSalon.com. “She had amazing hair, big, beautiful, very Farrah."
Now Aniston, the co-owner of Living Proof hair care products, is starring in a new show all about hair: a three-part web series, “The Good Hair Day,” about women’s stresses about their tresses. "We created this web series to show the very complex—and sometimes comical—relationship women have with their hair," Aniston stated, ModernSalon.com reports. "Having a good hair day shouldn't be so hard."Continue reading...

For those of you keeping score, Jennifer Aniston and her famous hair have found a fella to get married to again. But before they do, Aniston has also signed on for a different engagement, this one is with a beauty company that she’s now a part owner of as well as the clean-scrubbed, shining, big-smiling face of.
The brand, Living Proof, has announced that Aniston is now an investor and the hair-care spokesperson for the company, which was founded by a professor at MIT, Dr. Robert Langer, and venture capitalists Polaris Venture Partners.
According to a press release, “Living Proof has distinguished itself by attracting world class scientists and utilizing advanced scientific technologies that originated from MIT to solve women's toughest beauty problems.” In other words, they’re not fooling around.
"Jennifer embodies everything we stand for – a unique combination of beauty and brains,” Living Proof’s CEO, Jill Beraud, stated. “She not only has the most fabulous hair but is an amazing creative talent, and has shown she is a savvy businesswoman with a serious interest in developing small, innovative companies.”
If nothing else, you can be sure you’ll be seeing more of Aniston’s hair in the near future.Continue reading...

The new spot from Smartwater aims to go viral by making fun of the elements that have become viral video cliches.
It features viral memes such as double rainbows; YouTube lip-syncher Keenan Cahill (a web savant); adorable puppies; cute babies doing adult things; a crotch kick, a parrot and slow-mo hair-tossing that recalls Aniston's earlier spots for the brand.
What it doesn't have: the suggested video title of "Jennifer Aniston Sex Tape," the obvious fast-track way to making this truly viral.Continue reading...
