Jennifer Aniston has one of the most enviable manes in Hollywood. Jennifer is on Elleâ€™s latest cover looking beautiful as always, with her trademark hair (and my obsession). Her hair stylist Chris McMillan spilled some of her best hair secrets. And I absorbed every tip.
Chris McMillan said,
â€œI cut her hair religiously every six weeks, but between visits, she takes care of her hair, she really doesâ€”she doesnâ€™t rip through it when she brushes it after a shower. And she lets her hair dry on its own when sheâ€™s not working. She likes to wear her hair natural, and sheâ€™s good at styling it on her own.â€
And to style Jenniferâ€™s hair straight Chris said,
â€œWhen I blow-dry her hair straight, I like to use Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oilâ€”itâ€™s brand-new, and unfortunately itâ€™s only available in the UK, but itâ€™s awesome. Shu Uemura sent me some of the product six months ago, and Iâ€™ve been using it on Jenâ€™s hair ever since. I just pump a pea-size drop into my hand, rub it through the ends of her hair while itâ€™s damp, and blow-dry it straight using a round brush.
I donâ€™t use any of the Essence Absolue Oil in the root, though, because we like the roots fullâ€”sheâ€™s not liking her hair really bone-straight anymore; she likes it with some wave. Sometimes weâ€™ll bend the brush a bit and add straight waves so that itâ€™s smooth and straight but not flatiron-straight. Once Iâ€™m done blow-drying, I use a tiny bit of the Essence Absolue Oil to add gloss and texture at the ends.â€
Wow, she gets a trim every six weeks! I want my hair long and I think it would be too muchof a Â sacrifice, but I can see why she wouldnâ€™t have a split end in sight.
