If we had Jennifer Aniston‘s world-famous hair, you couldn’t pay us to cover it up. But the actress doesn’t mind hiding that gorgeous mane. In fact, she actually likes to do just that when she’s shooting a movie.

“I have to say it’s so nice to wear a wig, it’s like putting a hat on,” Aniston tells PEOPLE. “Your hair time in the morning is so easy.”

The actress dons a short blonde hairpiece in her upcoming film Meet the Millers, but it’s not the first time she’s changed her mane for a role. “I got a kind of bug for [wearing wigs] when I did Horrible Bosses, because it was like 10 minutes in the hair chair.”

Slashing her styling time isn’t the only benefit of faking it. “You really save your hair if you’re not putting all that heat on it and brushing it to death,” the Living Proof spokeswoman explains. “It’s nice to watch your hair grow for two months.”

Wig; A covering for the head made of real or artificial hair, typically worn by people for adornment.
I’ve always liked her “hair extensions”, but she probably thinks that they are her real hair. lol

I don’t see anything gorgeous about her hair. At the awards ceremony she needed a serious trim and new extensions. Her color needs refreshing. Over highlighting makes the hair dry. Her hair is too flat. Needs body and soft curls. The other stars do wonders with their hair. I don’t understand Jen’s flat long outdated hair with extensions.

Jen has gorgeous hair! She is a sweetie.
