Win a Haircut with Jennifer Aniston’s Stylist (& Meet Jen!)

May 9, 2013 at 1:16 pm , by

We sat down with hair icon Jennifer Aniston this week to talk all things hair—especially about why women battle with their locks (we’ve all done it!) and what she’s doing to change that. Aniston recently became part owner of the Living Proof hair care line and produced a mini documentary with the Living Proof team and her long-time stylist, Chris McMillan (he’s the man responsible for the famous Rachel cut) to explore our collective obsession with hair, and the lengths we all go to get our dream styles.

“I had great hair as a kid. My mom actually said you’re not allowed to touch your hair until you’re thirteen and she was right, I should not have,” Aniston says. “The first thing I did was cut it all off…I actually learned what my hair really was (which was not long and sort of cute) it was wide and unmanageable and a pain in the butt. I learned all my lessons in my younger years about what not to do.”

Aniston understands the desire for the latest gorgeous hairstyle but you won’t find her making any drastic cuts these days. “I usually just get a trim. I’ve always thought of going back to brunette but I think it’s more fun to play with it in movies.” (She admits her favorite movie look was the beachy, natural, long blonde look from Along Came Polly). “I think because of all the disasters I had as a kid. I don’t go to the ‘let’s cut it off or color it or shag it’ place. I’ve learned those lessons,” she says.

Now that she and McMillan have cracked the secret to those perfect, smooth locks we love so much on the red carpet, they’re sharing it with the rest of us (yes!). Aniston says Living Proof’s Nourishing Style Cream and Restore Mask have totally turned her hair around. She also says drinking water, getting enough sleep, and getting omega fatty acids in her diet help her iconic locks stay healthy from the inside out.

We also love that Aniston used the Living Proof products for several months before signing on to be a part of the company. She wanted see if the promised results would come through. “I gave it to my girlfriends, they love it. I gave it to Chris and he used it on his salon clients and they love it. So that was like, OK I will stand behind [this],” she says.

Next on Aniston’s beauty agenda is working with the company’s scientists to produce her fantasy products. “I can’t talk about it just yet!” she says. “It’s so exciting, being able to get in there and solve all the problems that girls have with their hair.”

To get a little of Aniston’s hair magic for yourself, enter by May 24th to win the chance to have your hair cut by her stylist, Chris McMillan. You’ll even get to meet Aniston herself! You can check out the first video in Aniston and McMillian’s Good Hair Day series today—and check back May 13th and 15th for more of the documentary.

  4. Hi there! I’ve lived in New York, Nashville and Chicago over the past 12 years and have yet to find a hair stylist to show me how I can rock my best “Kathy-style.” Trust me, I’ve tried… in NY they made my hair look like a boy, in Nashville they made my hair look like Bon Jovi and in Chicago, well, they my hair just looked boring. Despite the hair flops and mops, I’m a cute, single girl who will be turning 35 in a year and just like hair icon Jennifer Aniston has her signature look, I’m hoping to find mine. Can you help me, Chris McMillian? I KNOW you can. I need you help! :)


  5. I have problem hair. Very thick with lots of body in the back, but not quite as much body in the front. I love Jennifer’s hairstyles. I get the feeling some hairstylists cannot deal with my hair … not sure why; maybe it is just too thick and takes too long to cut and style. I remember when my oldest sibling was getting married, the hairstylist sent me home without a “DO”. ;) Can you help me?

  22. Thanks for the chance to win a dream haircut from a dream stylist (and Jen’s pretty dreamy, too)!


  23. It’s back to ponytails for me even at the age of 36. I went natural and when my hair isn’t as straight I would want to be. The ponytail style comes out. I so need help with my natural hair.


  24. I am 22 years old. My natural color is brown (mousy brown) and I have been coloring it auburn for several years. I have freckles all over my face and body I have blue eyes. People think I am a natural red-head. A really nice haircut and help with color would be great.


  25. I love Jennifer. She never seems to get older, and she always looks classy and nice. I need a great haircut and color because I am 46, and the older I get the coarser, duller and more boring my hair looks. It’s long with no real style.


  26. I would love a hair makeover! I do color my hair but as I’ve gotten older it has become coarse and frizzy. It’s shoulder length with no real shape and I need a new style! It would be so special to meet Jennifer and her stylist.


  27. Love Jennifer and every hair-do she has ever worn. As a 63 yer old grandmother with great hair and a busy schedule I would love a cut that went easily everywhere.


  28. For many years I have always requested to get a nice haircut style like Jennifer Anniston’s and the same thing is always said in response< "doen't everybody?" So as you can imagine, I never got that lucky to get a beautiful haircut like Jennifer Anniston!


  29. I cut my bangs way too short when I was a teenager, and will NOT cut my own hair ever again!
    I will turn 50 in November and would love a new do!


  30. When I was a teenager I cut my bangs way too short, and I will NEVER cut my own hair again, it was awful! I will turn 50 in November and would love a new do!


  31. I hate my current hairstyle and would love something new and different.


  32. It would be so amazing to get styled by Jennifer’s stylist. I know the style I would receive would compliment my features. I love trying new looks and winning this contest would be so much fun!


  33. I need a change. I have had this hair cut for three years now and I don’t know what style to change too. I need someone to say, “Hey this style would look great on you”.


  34. My hair needs a change and needs a great person’s advice.


  35. new cruise travel website currenty under development.

    I would lOVE to have my long and wild hair styled by a hollywood professional. They are the absolute best in the busiess bit here in NC they want your money but do a horrible job on your hair.

    where do i sign up?


  36. I have been coloring/having my hair colored blonde since 8th grade. I am 42 now, what does that tell you. I think my natural color is strawberry blonde…not really sure. I could really use a new hue or my blonde blended and style. It seems in the last year my hair’s texture, the way it takes color and style are harder to manage. Plus the rogue, coarse grays that pop through. I would like McMillian to whip my hair into submission. To top it off I would get to meet Jennifer Aniston. That would be too cool.


  37. Every 2 years I donate my 12 inches grown to Locks of Love. That is all I do with my hair. I cut it in February so now I wait another 2 years.


  38. Every 2 years I donate my 12 inches grown to Locks of Love. That is all I do with my hair. I cut it in February so now I wait another 2 years. BTW, Server Errors are popping up and this is hard to enter.


  39. I would love something new and different.


  40. I will be 50 in June and still single. I have blonde, straight, fine, medium length hair that I curl everyday. I’m not sure what the most flattering way should be to wear my hair because the shape of my face is square. Jen is always so beautiful. I would love some tips.


  41. I am a bottle blonde and I dont know how to change it, every hair dresser I’ve had cannot figure out how to correct it, please help me, and a cute hairdo would be nice since I’m approaching the big 50.


  42. I love Jennifers hair. I have lost weight in a period of two years. My hair is lacking alot. I have had same hairstyle for years. I need help. My weight is alot better just need help with my hair now.
    Thanks for considering a country girl from North Carolina


  43. I am 14 and almost 15 and im really curious about my hair. I like it how it is but, I think I want to change it up a little. I am a brunette with some blonde highlights and I have layers because of my thick hair, my natural hair is wavy but I straighten it everyday. I think if I could get Jennifer Aniston’s hairstylist to do my hair it would look amazing and I would feel less self concious than I am. I also want to say that meeting Jennifer would be a dream come true! I watch Friends everynight before I got to sleep and i’ve seen many movies with her in it, shes my favorite actress!!


  44. This old grandma is ready for a new look “and can’t tell where to find it.” Can’t leave them alone so show me what I need please.


  45. I have been cutting my own hair for the last 25 years (I am 61. I have pulmonary hypertension and an enlarged heart and work full time in an office. My husband is on disability and we are soley responsible for two grandchildren. There is never enough money for food, shelter and clothes, much less the luxury of going to a salon and getting a cut and style.


  46. I’m a gal who survived the 1980′s and big overprocessed hair. Nowadays, I’m pretty much low maint and would love to have a hairstyle that would compliment my face and skin tone. Good hairdressers can be hard to find and I would love the opportunity to be styled by one. Help me be a hip chic of the 2000′s.


  47. I cut my hair at home. Times are hard. I once had that wonderful salon experience but that seems forever ago. What a beautiful person to meet and have style you. Her class is timeless as is her grace in how she handles herself and her celebrity status. I love her style. Reminds me of how I once cared before I had to start taking care of others before myself. I just say yes to often, that is my character flaw.


  48. I became homeless and lived out of a car for four months with my 6 ft 7 son and four dogs – my hair was so full of greys I got the scissors one day and told my son to cut it all off – and he did lol… it was about a half inch all over with a little style and longer on top. Do you know I have never had so many compliments (once it grew in a little). He still cuts my hair 18 months later – no longer homeless now and I could afford a hairdresser but have never found one that can give me a haircut where people give me compliments like that……. and no – they were not just feeling sorry for me :)


  49. I’ve loved Jen since “Friends”. I’ve always loved her hair and style. My hair has some wave, but I’ve always wanted her cut. I’ll be looking up her product line next.


  50. I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been
    utilizing? I’m having some small security issues with my latest site and I would like to find something more safe. Do you have any suggestions?


  51. OMG–a double blessing!


  52. OMG—a double blessing!


  53. I’m bored with my current style. This would be wonderful!


  54. I am 50! Latina with curly black hair. Lots of hair and I straight my hair every time I wash it with hair dryer. My hair is long and I need a new hair cut. No! I refuse to leave my hair curly!
    Need something sexy, easy to care for and at the same time professional look.
    Thanks!
