Jennifer Aniston: From the 'Rachel' to hair care biz

Jennifer Aniston may have inspired what could have been a countless number of haircuts in the 1990s, but now she wants to help women simplify hair care.

Aniston, who parlayed her role as Rachel on the sitcom "Friends" into a film career, spoke with CNBC on Monday about her business venture on the cutting edge of hair care. She's an investor, co-owner and spokeswoman for Living Proof, a hair care company founded by biotech scientists at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, about 10 years ago.

Her role in the long-running sitcom inspired a hairstyle that became synonymous with the 1990s. Aniston told CNBC the "Rachel" haircut craze created a natural progression into her current business venture.

"We overdo everything on hair care," Aniston said on "Squawk on the Street." "You go into any woman's bathroom and the drawers are just like chaos. There are mousses and serums from this company and that company, and I think it's all about trying to simplify and get the easy steps, so that you're not being confused and spending way too much time in the bathroom getting ready."
