The Rachel, who? 

Rachel Green was known for her hair-spiration on Friends, but her best friend and roommate Monica Geller also held her own when it came to styling her mane. 

From her cute and flirty banged bob in Season 1 to her straight and sleek lob in the tenth and final season, Monica was just as revolutionary when it came to her hairstyles. Except during "The One in Barbados," where the humidity clearly won. And she will definitely never let Phoebe near her tresses again. 

Fifteen years after the finale, we wouldn't be surprised if fans of the comedy are still taking photos of Monica to their hairstylists. 

Keep scrolling to see Monica's complete hair transformation on Friends.

Is that Monica Geller or Farrah Fawcett? Monica went full Charlie's Angel in Season 7 of Friends with her longer locks and side bangs. Even the Holiday Armadillo was impressed.
