And now…the man behind this week's mane event!

Jennifer Aniston's longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan is ready to dish all about the star's new bob, including why she suddenly changed her signature hairstyle.

"It was a spontaneous decision," Living Proof's celebrity stylist shared exclusively with E! News. "Jen just wanted a change every so often like every other girl and this style was one that suited her." Indeed, he was also the creator of the star's bob haircuts in 2001 and 2011.

This time the former Friends star and Living Proof co-owner wanted something a bit more edgy. "The cut is a piecey A-Line bob. It is choppy but with no hard edges. We are calling it the un-precious bob."

Meaning, it won't take a lot of effort to maintain, which is ideal for the star who recently shared she doesn't blowout her hair every day.  "The hair has a very lived in look, and you actually don't even how to blow dry it! All she has been doing is applying Living Proof's Perfect Hair Day  5-in-1 Styling Treatment to wet hair to give it volume and smoothness," McMillan explains, adding "She is loving it so far!"

Only time will tell if Jen's new look will catch on like her iconic "Rachel" hairstyle (which Chris also created) but McMillan wouldn't be surprised. "This cut can honestly work for anyone. We never could have expected what happened with the Rachel. I think this is a great cut for women right now, and very on trend."
