Jennifer Aniston: ‘Normal’ Hair Care Routines And Snobby Emirates Ads

Jennifer Aniston always appears to be the picture of perfection, whether she is gracing the red carpet in some designer sheath or running an errand in Los Angeles. The star is therefore constantly asked about her routines to staying so youthful in complexion and fit in physique.

When it comes to the actress’ hair, Look notes that Aniston’s routine for looking her best is actually quite quick and normal. Additionally, the routine requires little money or effort. Who wouldn’t want to find out what that routine is? An inexpensive beauty regiment with results to complement is surely every woman’s dream. The publication shares Aniston’s response when asked about her usual daily hair-care procedure.

“I’ll use a little bit of the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo on my roots on the second day after I’ve shampooed. Yesterday it took me 15 minutes to get up, get my hair done, and go. I honestly just blow-dry it with my fingers around my hairline, and then I get the roots set, and then I’ll let the rest of the hair air-dry.”

Even Jennifer Aniston goes a day between shampoos, ladies. Although Jen typically wears her hair in her natural wavy look, often she’ll smooth her locks down for more shine and a sleek look. In order to achieve this style, Aniston uses a large round brush her hairstylist Chris McMillan taught her to use. The Friends star shares how the brush and straight styling of her hair serves a dual purpose.

“I’ll whip that out and get a really good arm workout at the same time.”

Jen relied on Chris to keep her locks healthy and updated to the latest and hottest look. McMillan was even the one responsible for the famous “Rachel” cut from back in the 90s. Jen shares the style was actually an accident and a bit of a nightmare to deal with.

“Letting Chris cut my hair was just so major. He was the first person to really give me a haircut, and he taught me how to actually take care of my hair. He gave me the ‘Rachel’, which was a big, horrible mistake. I mean, it was great at the time, but it was a never-ending legacy for some reason. And it only lasted for about six months because it just was hard to do. I loved it, but I couldn’t style it on my own. So Chris also just has that way of [making me be] completely reliant on him.”

Being reliant on a stylist who clearly keeps the star looking so fabulous is obviously not a bad thing. Although she doesn’t have a full beauty squad as one would expect for keeping her looking so fresh, Chris certainly gets points for being her top go-to when need be.

The actress has taken that radiant look into new endeavors as of late. Filming for Mother’s Day and taking on the role as being the face for Emirates Airlines’ latest ad campaign are only a couple of the successes Aniston has experienced since tying the knot to Justin Theroux this past summer. Unfortunately, however, the beauty and the airline are taking heat due to the apparent “snobby” nature of the newly-released advertisement, where Aniston plays herself but finds herself in a nightmare that has her frustrated about not being able to get the snacks she wants and the service she expects. She wakes to a dream-like reality on Emirates and finds that everything is as she expects it. The airline defends the snobbery of the ad and shares why it is that they chose Aniston as their face. Fox News relays the airline’s words.

“We couldn’t think of anyone better suited for the role than Jennifer Aniston…Her professionalism and comedic talent shone on the set and we are very pleased with the outcome.”
