When Jennifer Aniston shared an Instagram clip promoting her latest LolaVie hair product on June 2, fans were instantly smitten—but not necessarily with the item itself. Instead, several of the 54-year-old actress’s 42.3 million followers on the platform chimed in to the comments section to share how refreshing it was to see the Friends star rocking her natural gray roots. Aniston wore her locks in a half-up ponytail with a few strands left out to frame her face.

“Well done for allowing grey to come through - refreshing,” one person wrote.

“Thank you for leading the way on grey!!!” another fan chimed.

“Your grey hair is BEAUTIFUL!! It suits you so much and makes your eyes pop even more,” someone else applauded.

“Showing grey hair is the new form of personal branding,” one individual quipped.

“You do honor to women everywhere showing how beautiful aging truly is,” someone else noted. “[You’re] a remarkable lady.”

Known for “The Rachel” haircut she rocked on the aforementioned sitcom in the 1990s, Aniston has previously made remarks about aging gracefully and feeling better in her 50s than she has at any other age.

“I feel the best in who I am today, better than I ever did in my 20s or 30s even, or my mid-40s. We needed to stop saying bad s--- to ourselves,” Aniston told Allure last December. “You’re going to be 65 one day and think, I looked f------ great at 53.”
