: Hello! I wonder what the meaning of this expression is:It's a ten.I got that from one of the episodes of Friends in which Monica was given a hair cut by phebe and she hated it and Ross said this expression to her which upsetted her even more

People often rate things "on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest". It's usually a compliment to be called a 10, but the joke in this case could be that Ross has notoriously bad taste so anything he likes is terrible.
