Celebrity Hairstylist: Chris McMillan
With so many hairstylists giving a rundown of the products they use to achieve those glamorous red carpet looks, it’s amazing that they can travel to remote locations with all that baggage. That’s why it comes as a HUGE surprise that Jennifer Aniston, who has one of the most enviable manes in Hollywood, doesn’t require any products in her hair for the perfect blowout, according to her hairstylist Chris McMillan.
You Likely Know His Work
If you don’t know who Chris McMillan is, you will certainly recognize his work. In the ’90s, McMillan created the iconic haircut of the ’90s, “The Rachel.” (See below – an iconic moment from McMillan’s Instagram feed – a young McMillan styling “The Rachel.”)
McMillan boasts a full complement of high-profile clients that have included Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and many more.
Achieving the Product-Free Blowout
To achieve a full but straight blowout, here are McMillan’s tips.
You will need:
- Ibiza Hair Tools Large Round Brush
- Hair Dryer
- Spray bottle with water
Towel-dry freshly shampooed hair.
Blow dry in one-and-a-half inch sections starting at the nape of the neck.
Tips: Keep it simple, over direct, and the key is to really lift and dry the roots. McMillan explains that not using any products helps the blowout last.
Chris McMillan currently has a salon in Beverly Hills, California, named for the owner Chris McMillan the Salon. You can book appointments through the salon’s website.
