How J.Lo and Jennifer Aniston get good hair

As genetically blessed as J.Lo and Jennifer Aniston are, their good looks don’t necessarily guarantee they’re blessed with impeccable hair-styling skills – that, thanks to their financially-blessed accounts, comes from their glam squads.

But there’s still a way to replicate their sleek and chic made-for-the-red-carpet looks without having a celebrity stylist on the payroll.

We’ve rounded up two simple tips from the pros to help you.

Replicate J.Lo’s bouncy blowout with velcro rollers

Sure, hair styling techniques have advanced since your mum was using rollers, but don’t discount a set of velcro rollers when trying to maintain bouncy waves, even some volume at the roots.

A few humble velcro rollers are credited for Jennifer Lopez’s perfectly huge hair during her halftime show at the 2020 Super Bowl, according to her stylist Chris Appleton, who also admits they’re a great final step to ensure your hair stays ‘big’ before you walk out the door.

Once you’ve layered your volume-creating products and your hair is completely dry, roll in a few velcro rollers into the sections that frame your face – if you have enough for your whole head, go for it, otherwise use your hot tools to wave the rest of your hair.

Speaking to Stylist, Appleton says they’re a smart way to set the bouncy wave as they help the hair to memorise and it cools. “They’re a great way for holding what you’ve got and [while they work], you can finish getting ready,” he adds.

Skip the hot tools and get messy, à la Jen Aniston

The man responsible for the ‘Rachel’ lob everyone had in the ’90s, Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan knows a thing or two (or 12) about how to create effortlessly chic hair – after all, have you ever seen Aniston with a bad ‘do? Neither have we.

But one way to replicate Aniston’s effortlessly done-but-not-‘done’ look is to give your hot tools a break and tweak your hair-drying technique.

Aniston’s hairstylist Chris McMillan, who also works with Courtney Cox and Michelle Williams, told Vogue that the Morning Wars star doesn’t like a “manufactured curl”.

“Jen’s hair always looks like you can touch it, it’s not sprayed into place,” he says. So to ‘get the look’ McMillan recommends using different sized round brushes to twist the hair in sections as your blowdry. This technique allows for more natural, looser bends and waves.

While Aniston is known to not like the feel of hairspray in her hair, McMillan still applies it as a last step but changes the way he uses it. Instead he takes an ultra-lightweight hairspray and sprays the product into his hands, rubbing them together, before combing his fingers through the hair – to create a bit of grit and texture.
