Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hairdresser Chris McMillian tells Allure.com why he decided to cut Jen’s famous long hair into a short sassy bob. Hint: He doesn’t want his client looking like the ladies of ‘The Real Housewives’ – any of them.
“I’m loving bobs again. I love the girl in the YSL ads. It’s a sexy look. The reason that I’m loving a bob at the moment… There are so many long, layered hairstyles and-don’t get me wrong, I love that. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all have that. You know what I mean? And what’s the opposite direction you can go in?” McMillan said.
“It’s nice to take the extensions out of the hair and do something more natural. It’s gotten out of hand. But I can’t stop watching it.”
McMillan calls Jen’s new do a hairline bob, because it follows the jaw down.
“It’s shortened in back and longer in front. It’s angled and inspired by Vidal Sassoon haircuts and Julie Christie from ‘Shampoo’,” he told Allure.
“It was just time for a change. We had a blast doing it. And we’ve always liked this haircut. It’s about keeping things simple. The way Celine and Calvin Klein and Jil Sander and all these clothing lines are keeping it really simple and chic. I really feel that fashion right now. All the styles are back to when I first started doing hair. And I love it.”
I know a lot of people say her new cut makes her look older, but I love it. I think she looks great!
