“Oh what I would have told myself then,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom reflected after sharing a throwback snap.

Ever since Jennifer Aydin joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey in Season 9, we’ve been blessed to see some of the New York native’s prettiest beauty looks, including a few hair changes

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

While Jennifer came on the show flaunting some sleek blowouts and long, straight ponytails, she’s also given a glimpse of her natural curls over the years. Two such instances occurred in March 2020, when she was busy with her kids, and later that summer, when she put her pre–keratin treatment tresses on display

More recently, the mom of five showed off an old photo of her curly hair, embracing her roots — both literally and figuratively — in the process. 

Jennifer Aydin Re-Creates Her High School Photo 

On July 27, Jennifer took to her Instagram Stories to share the details of her busy day at home and running errands. Later in the day, she added a throwback photo for good measure, and we were honestly enthralled.

“11th grade Class of ’95,” she wrote over her high school yearbook photo, in which she rocked a half-up hairstyle with long, flowing curls. She also shared the hashtag of her school, Plainview – Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School, in Plainview, New York.

Coincidentally, Jennifer was wearing the exact same ’do that day, looking fabulous as always with a large black scrunchie holding up her curls (just like her yearbook photo!), which today also have a few sun-kissed highlights.

“46 years old,” she reflected over the snapshot. “Oh what I would’ve told myself then.” 

We can only imagine! 

Jennifer Aydin’s Outfit for Jacob’s Graduation

Speaking of high school, Jennifer recently attended her son Jacob’s eighth-grade graduation, celebrating his next chapter as a rising freshman. 

To commemorate the occasion, Jennifer was sure to dress to the nines, wearing a black dress with cap sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, and a ruffled hem. The dress featured a bright red ribbon tie on the front of the bodice and was peppered with embroidered flowers and polka dots. The brunette beauty accessorized with silver hoop earrings, a crystal pendant necklace, an oversize Chanel cuff, quilted black mules, and sideswept curls.

“Congratulations to my [Jacob Aydin]! I’m so excited to see where this journey of life will take you — and I’ll be there, having your back every step of the way, even though I know you won’t need it,” Jennifer captioned her Instagram post. “You’re my little go-getter! We’re all so proud of you! Buh bye [middle] school! Hello, high school!”
