Exclusive Photos: Jennifer Aniston's Stylist Dishes On Whether She's Used to the Bob (and What Was Up With Those Extensions)

How smart is Jennifer Aniston? Her role as an investor in Living Proof haircare means she gets tons of super-luxe blowouts (for work, of course) and lots of quality time with her BFF Chris McMillan. And we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at photos from her most recent shoot for the brand‘s ad campaign for PHD Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as some hair scoop from her longtime stylist McMillan — including whether she’s adjusted to her recent short cut. (After all, she did add extensions recently.)

Since McMillan was there for the big chop, who better to dish on how it went down? “Jen cut her hair because she wanted a change. It was a spur of the moment decision but she’s really happy with it,” he says. And as for her initial reaction (“The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It’s a guarantee. I’m trying really hard to love this one,” she told Elle UK) he says she’s totally digging it now. “It’s common to be unsure about a major hair change right after it happens. You look in the mirror for a week or so and forget you look different! It was definitely an adjustment but she loves it.”

So what was with those extensions we saw a few weeks ago? “The extensions were just for a project she was working on!” he says. “She only had them for a few days while shooting.”

For the photoshoot, Aniston is still sporting her old haircut, giving it the full wind-machine/model treatment. She looks fab, but seeing the old cut makes us realize how much we’re into the new cut — it’s a fun, fresher look for the actress, so we’re glad to hear that she’s now loving it short.

And though we’re not quite prepared to assign deeper meaning to Aniston’s bob, McMillan says that a haircut does say a lot about a person. “A haircut often conveys someone’s personality,” he shares. “If they just get a trim regularly then they are often consistent, have found a style that works with them and sticks to it. For someone who gets dramatically different cuts every time, they are often more spontaneous and like to try new things. However, none of this is true in Hollywood where hair, like clothing and make-up, changes for roles, particular special events or just to create a new look!”

Another article about her HAIR?!?!?!
She is 45 and the only thing people have to say about her involves her average hair. How pathetic.

Didn’t she say she damaged it with Brazilian treatment? She can’t keep her stories straight.
What do fans see in her?
All she talks about is her hair, body, hair again, Friends, hair again…..zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Wow that fake hair is gorgeous and natural looking.

Sonja on

Is Jennifer Anniston known for anything other than her hair and love life?

Janie on

Her fcuking hair again. What’s so great about her hair anyway? They are not hers. She has extension.

Marcia on

Her PR guy can’t string people along anymore with “Is she pregnant?” And it doesn’t look like she’s getting married. So that leaves her hair. Zzzzzz

Jennifer Aniston is a lot more than the hair. I have been around celebrities all my life and they are just people. For all of you haters out there, “Quit clicking on articles like this.” Jen is not just a babe, “Jen is The Babe.”

Annie on

I have never read so much “jealousy” in my life. Wow, ladies
she is 45 and looks fantastic. IF you do not like her that is fine but then why do you read any and all articles about her. I think she is great . The fact that she has tons of friends and people who work for her speaks volumes about her……go figure !

Gina on

Hair hair hair hair-show your body-hair hair hair. She is so boring. A man with her can’t really want much in a woman.
