Jennifer Aniston Hairstyles
Jennifer Aniston, 43, now has her hair several inches past the top of her shoulders and parted in the middle. It is straight and lightly layered. There's no sign of her 2011 bob in this picture (top left) taken on February 17, 2012. It's back to Classic Jen: natural, effortless, and pretty. Any woman who likes a cut that is long, low-maintenance, and looks modern, could appreciate her very basic design. It keeps Jen looking young; she could still pass for 33.
It all started in
the mid-1990s. Since the Rachel hairstyle
was introduced in 1995, no other female
star has inspired women seeking a hot
hairstyle more than Jennifer Aniston. She played Rachel Green on Friends, and got a new
haircut for the second season. It was
very popular and so many girls and women
all over the United States copied it. It was in fact
requested so often at hair salons, it
became the most popular hairstyle of the
year, then the decade, then in all

Aniston has a wonderful heart; its warmth
warms us. She is such a genuine person, a
rare woman in Hollywood who is beautiful
on the inside and outside. In 2009 she did a commercial for St. Jude's Hospital to help children with cancer.
After the final
episode of Friends, she
continued her acting career in movies.
She was married to Brad Pitt and they
were a Hollywood power couple. And so she--and
her hair--continued to be shown to us
regularly by the media. The exposure was

There is a lot about her to like, and

ever says bad things about other people,
and doesn't do a lot of stupid things
like many other stars.
Of course Jennifer
is also easy on the eye. She has
beautiful blue eyes, a svelte figure, and

Did She Get a New Stylist?
Jennifer Aniston's hairstylist is Chris McMillan. He has been cutting hair for 20 years and cutting her hair for 15 years. He has his own hair studio in Beverly Hills, California called Chris McMillan: The Salon.
In 2008 McMillan wrote a piece for Allure magazine entitled "How to Break Up With Your Hairstylist." In 2009 ironically it was reported that Aniston had broken up with McMillan. Did she read his advice and follow it? CelebTV.com posted a YouTube video entitled "Jennifer Aniston fires her famous stylist, Chris McMillan."
It was surprising to hear she had left her "mane man," because they had known each other since 1995. They first met on the set of the TV show Friends; he created her famous hairstyle called The Rachel. Later, she entrusted him to design her unique wedding hairstyle when she married Brad Pitt.
Aniston, furthermore, moved in with McMillan in 2005 right after she had broken up with Pitt. He had been a shoulder to cry on for many years, so she had a very strong bond with him. He seemed to be her BFF (Best Friend Forever). He had been her confidante partly because they had seen each other so often. McMillan said he cut her hair "religiously every six weeks."
But it proved to be a false rumor. Aniston did not break up with her hairdresser. In 2010 he did an interview with W Magazine for its April issue; he talked about his work for the photo shoot. Jennifer Aniston was on the magazine cover and he did her hair for it. He said they had been together for about 15 years, and he is still her hairdresser.
"She's been a great loyal friend and client," he said.
