When it comes to hair, there are two types of people in the world: Scissor-happy, ever-changing chameleons with a long list of lengths, styles, and colors accumulated over the years — and those who opt for consistency. They know what they like and stick to it, maintaining a look that slowly becomes their signature over time. Courteney Cox would fall into the latter category, sustaining her dark brunette, medium-length hair throughout her illustrious career, but the actor opted for a subtle update on Fri. Courtesy of celebrity hairstylist and salon owner, George Northwood, Courteney Cox's shag haircut was a choppy change for the 55-year-old actor.
"Somebody had some free time today in London. Thanks @georgenorthwood and @sallynorthwood #fringe #myeyesmyeyes #highlights," Cox captioned a slideshow of selfies showcasing the new look, which included warm brown highlights by Sally Northwood of the London salon. The impromptu snap showcased movement in the actor's face-framing fringe, the London breeze blowing her choppy, freshly-highlighted pieces about.
According to the comments section, Cox wasn't the only one smiling over the fresh fall update. Laura Dern raved "Beauty!!! 😍😍😍" while Poppy Delevingne echoed the sentiment, "BEAUTIFUL 💫" and Northwood reposted the snaps to her own page, captioning the selfies, "@courteneycoxofficial lightens up ✨ Thank you for letting me paint your hair ❤️ loving the new shorter choppy locks."
