Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston took a few inches off her signature locks, and around the world, CHAOS ENSUED*.

Her decision resulted in global unrest, as Supercuts and Great Clips locations worldwide were reportedly mobbed by hordes of angry women wielding scissors.

And in LA, hairstylist Jose Eber is said to have gone into hiding after a mob broke down his front door with cries of, "Bring back The Rachel!"

Meanwhile, chants of "JENNIFER GOT A BOB!" could be heard from unruly crowds in far-flung locales ranging from Bangkok to New Zealand to Peoria.

And now, Aniston's hairstylist has revealed to Allure magazine the shocking story behind her decision.

*Totally fictitious chaos, obvs.

In an Allure exclusive, hairstylist Chris McMillan admits that Aniston's signature look had been appropriated by a group with whom she understandably doesn't want to be associated. He says:

There are so many long, layered hairstyles and—don't get me wrong, I love that. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all have that. You know what I mean? And what's the opposite direction you can go in?

A bob, of course! Or as he calls it, a hairline bob, which is shorter in the back and longer in the front.

McMillan talks about the cut to Allure like it's some new, modern style, but frankly this bob has been around for years. It's nothing you won't see in any shopping mall in America.

But what do we care?

Jennifer has taken it all off! Let the rioting outside the Vidal Sassoons of the world continue!
