Jennifer Aniston has one of the most enviable manes in Hollywood. Jennifer is on Elle’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,

“I cut her hair religiously every six weeks, but between visits, she takes care of her hair, she really does—she doesn’t rip through it when she brushes it after a shower. And she lets her hair dry on its own when she’s not working. She likes to wear her hair natural, and she’s good at styling it on her own.”

And to style Jennifer’s hair straight Chris said,

“When I blow-dry her hair straight, I like to use Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil—it’s brand-new, and unfortunately it’s only available in the UK, but it’s awesome. Shu Uemura sent me some of the product six months ago, and I’ve been using it on Jen’s hair ever since. I just pump a pea-size drop into my hand, rub it through the ends of her hair while it’s damp, and blow-dry it straight using a round brush.

I don’t use any of the Essence Absolue Oil in the root, though, because we like the roots full—she’s not liking her hair really bone-straight anymore; she likes it with some wave. Sometimes we’ll bend the brush a bit and add straight waves so that it’s smooth and straight but not flatiron-straight. Once I’m done blow-drying, I use a tiny bit of the Essence Absolue Oil to add gloss and texture at the ends.”

Wow, she gets a trim every six weeks! I want my hair long and I think it would be too muchof a  sacrifice, but I can see why she wouldn’t have a split end in sight.
