Celebrity stylist Chris McMillan on the inspiration behind Jennifer Aniston's new 'do:
"I call it a hairline bob that follows the jawline down. It's shortened in back and longer in front. It's angled and inspired by Vidal Sassoon haircuts and Julie Christie from Shampoo... It was just time for a change. We had a blast doing it. And we've always liked this haircut. It's about keeping things simple. The way Celine and Calvin Klein and Jil Sander and all these clothing lines are keeping it really simple and chic. I really feel that fashion right now. All the styles are back to when I first started doing hair. And I love it."
McMillan's tips for achieving the look:
At the salon: "In the back it angles up — it was cut at the nape. I love it when it's slightly angled. The angle adds a modern edge to it. To keep it modern, it's not too blunt but also not too layered. It kind of has a choppier edge. The ends are cut into, but mainly they're all one length."
At home: "A haircut at this length can tend to be a little round. You want to keep it a little more square. So I took the flatiron to straighten out the underneath pieces to take some of the roundness out, and I left the top fluffy and full. I used a bit of mousse at the roots to give it height at the crown."
