We know why Jennifer Aniston picked her dazzling red Valentino gown for Sunday’s Oscars, but what was the thought behind her hair?

Her longtime stylist, Living Proof’s Chris McMillan, says the star wanted to stick with what works. “She wanted to keep the makeup natural and the hair natural,” he says in the exclusive clip above. “I think it’s about, at this point, being really comfortable on the red carpet.” Amen!

To hear more on Aniston’s Oscar night look, and to hear McMillan give a how-to on the night’s hot short hairstyles (his faves were Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron), watch the clip above.

I would not be boasting that I did Jen Aniston’s hair at the Oscars for this year. Her fly aways were out of control, her dye job looked off(too beige, it washed her out), and her hair looked dirty and clumped together–even my husband said her hair looked rough and he NEVER notices that sort of thing. Personally, I’d love to see her wear her hair up or softly waved or just do ANYTHING with it other than wear it flat and down. It’s boring to see her at award shows because she never does anything that isn’t “safe”. Her “natural” hair and makeup looked more appropriate for wearing sweats on her sofa and watching the Oscars from home instead of attending them.

I like Jen, but man I wish she would change it up. Always has hair down, black dress. The most she’ll do for change is white/nudish dress or on occasion red. Wear some yellow or pink and put your hair up! Who cares about your chin girl! You’re beautiful!

I like Jen, and she has a very carefree personality. The hair fits her. I would like to see it up on occasion, but slicked straight back. I hate that hairdo on all women. I ‘d love to see her in a very deep blue, so her beautiful bright blue eyes would be outstanding.

it’s time to get rid of the “Rachel” haircut!

Her hair looked tired and dried out. So her stylist should keep his mouth shut before he ruins his reputation. It needs a hot oil treatment or just a new style.

I loved the dress, but I thought it would have been more striking with pulled back hair and some sparkly earrings. But she does have a signature look, she’s kind of known for her hair.

Isn’t that her only look? I mean, it’s like she’s scared to even go the tiniest bit out of her comfort zone. It’s too bad she doesn’t try some of the styles that Jennifer Garner tries. Some of those soft and romantic looks might look really pretty on her. Especially since she’s invested in that hair product company…

I love Jennifer too, but that was the worst I have seen her look in a long time. That hair was really bad. It felt as if she woke up, brushed her hair, threw on a ball gown and went to the Oscar’s. That is the most boring hairstyle I have ever seen on the red carptet. She should try a little harder or don’t bother going. It’s Hollywood’s biggest night. You know you have to try a little harder. The natural makeup didn’t work either. Her skin didn’t look good enough to pull off the glowy, natural look. I would love to see her go glam for once. Take a note from Reese Witherspoon’s hairstylist. Now that was fabulous Oscar night hair! Chris McMillan shouldn’t put his name out there that he did Jennifer’s hair. It was a mess. Sorry Jen.

i love jen as much as anyone but that was an issue for me at the oscars. i hated the hair down with the dress. It was too casual. i am seeing a bit of goldie hawn in her. the same hairstyle all the time.

Why is she known for her hair? Jennifer Lawrence has long, thck naturally blond hair, others have much nicer hair than Annistons, so I just don’t get the fuss about her hair.
