It’s not every day that you come across someone who looks like Jennifer Aniston — let alone someone who could be her twin. After all, despite having blonde hair and blue eyes, the actress has a very distinct look. So, you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon an Instagram photo of a woman who looks nearly identical to the Friends star (save for her signature beachy blonde hair, that is). After doing a little digging, I learned that Aniston’s lookalike is a client of California-based hairstylist, Stephanie Carrillo, who had no idea what she was in for when she first posted her customer’s headshot.
“She’s been posted a few separate times now, and every single time my followers go crazy,” says Carrillo in an email to Allure. “They even go as far as to tag Jennifer Aniston!” And well, we can definitely see why. Even with different hair colors, there’s an uncanny resemblance between Aniston and the unnamed client, who, unlike the Marley & Me star, has reddish-blonde hair with golden highlights.
Folks were quick to notice the similarities between the two women and didn’t waste any time commenting on Carrillo’s post about it. They’ve been leaving messages like, “Omg Jennifer Aniston??” “I didn’t know you did jenn Annistons hair,” and “She looks like @jenniferaniston 😍.” And those are just a few of many.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that people are obsessed with the client’s strawberry blonde hair color, which is a gorgeous shade to try for summer if you’re a blonde or redhead who wants to step out of your comfort zone. On the other hand, perhaps you want to take a page out of Aniston’s book and go golden blonde with natural highlights. Either way, changing up your hair color is a great way to get out of a rut — and let’s be real, many of us are in one right now.
Hair inspiration aside, this is definitely one celebrity doppelgänger we won’t soon forget.
