Jennifer Aniston’s character, Rachel Green, had a hairstyle that was iconic in the mid to late 90s, with every teenager and person on the block asking hairdressers for ‘The Rachel’. But what about Monica’s personal style? Over 10 seasons, Courtney Cox’s character had her own evolution when it comes to haircuts. Let’s take a look.

Seasons 1 and 2: Bob and bangs

In the first series of Friends, Monica sported a bob with a heavy fringe (or ‘bangs’ if you’reAmerican). Her hair has lots of body and was a deep black that showed off herpale complexion. In the second series, the bob had grown out a little and the fringe became wispier, creating a more refined look. And its season’s 1 look that Friendsical’s Monica opens the show with!

Season 3: Long bob, no bangs

In series three, Monica’s bob is long – sitting on her shoulders – and she says goodbye to the fringe, which is grown out. You’ll often see her with a ponytail or half-up, half-down look in this series.

Season 4: Choppy crop

Monica wears a sophisticated, choppy crop in the fourth season, complete with flattering layers and flicky ends. A light, wispy fringe is also brought back into the picture, framing her face perfectly.

Season 5: Shoulder length style

By Season 5, Monica’s messy crop has grown out and she’s back to sporting a shoulder length look. The layers are gone, and instead Monica’s ’do is sleek and often straight, though you will see her experimenting with crimps and curls throughout the series.

Season 6: Long and luscious

Long, straight locks are the order of the day in Season 6, with the raven colour of Monica’s hair complementing her porcelain skin. The length highlights her features and the glossy condition of her tresses.

Season 7 and 8: Lengthy layers

Monica appears in Season 7 with yet another stunning style. Her hair now has layers cut in, giving it body, while some subtle highlights give depth to the dark shade, and soften her features a little. For Season 8, the length remains, but there are a few more highlights and layers, with flicky ends giving shape to her ’do. She wears it in loose waves that create a relaxed look.

Season 9: Side swept

Monica goes back to a shoulder length cut in Season 9, and adopts a long fringe that’s swept to the side for achic, sassy look. She’s kept the layers in, which give her hair volume and definition, and she wears it both straight and wavy throughout the series.

Season 10: Back to bob

The final season saw Monica go back to her younger days with a bob cut. The side fringe and layers remain, but the length is chopped to her shoulders. The overall look is a soft, elegant one.
