  • On Saturday, as a birthday tribute to her longtime friend and stylist Chris McMillan, Jennifer Aniston (opens in new tab) shared an amazing throwback picture from her Friends days. 
  • In the vintage photo, shared on Instagram (opens in new tab), the actress appears to be posing in her Friends dressing room with her hair teased up high while wearing big hoop earrings and standing next to McMillan.
  • Aniston also shared a second, more current, photo of her and McMillan to illustrate their enduring friendship.

Jennifer Aniston's Instagram (opens in new tab)  grid is the gift the keeps on giving. Since literally crashing the popular app when she joined in October (opens in new tab), Aniston has captivated our collective attention with every single post.

On Saturday, the actress shared a two-photo gallery of pictures of her posing alongside her longtime friend and stylist, Chris McMillan (opens in new tab)—aka, the genius who created her iconic Friends 'do, The Rachel (opens in new tab).

"I got that haircut and was like, ‘Wow this is amazing,’ and then I was totally left with this frizzy mop on my head, because I had no idea how to do what he did," she joked of the look, according to People (opens in new tab). "Nobody seems to know how to do what Chris does. And I figured out that’s called creating job security."

The first photo in the series is particularly amazing; it appears to be a throwback from Aniston's Friends (opens in new tab) days, taken in her dressing room with McMillan. The only thing bigger than her hair in the photo might be her gigantic hoop earrings—in other words, it's peak '90s.
