Last week, Jennifer Aniston pleasantly surprised us by sporting a fishtail braid—her first ever to our knowledge. And now her longtime hairstylist Chris McMillian is dishing on the 'do. Oh, and not to worry, he does indeed shared a simple step-by-step so you can copy the look—'cause you know you wanna!
Can you tell us a little about last week's Living Proof shoot?
This was a shoot to try out different looks on Jen for Living Proof Instant Texture Mist. We really wanted to get creative and have fun. The shoot was at my salon, so we were super-relaxed and just focused picking a look and having fun.
We've never seen Aniston with a fishtail bird (or any side braid) before…Why did you choose that style?
Jen and I both really loved this look. We wanted to try something different that would be great for the summer. Jen really wanted to try something new and she loved it. We also were going for a dramatic look with the braid, which is why we used extensions. It is a look that's fun, easy but also really edgy.
Can you give us a step-by-step of how to recreate the style?
What are your hair predictions for fall?
Low ponytails are really hot right now. Pulled back hair with natural texture is also big. I love the sort of "lived in" texture look that is super effortless and easy. I also think redheads will make a big come back this fall.
