With all her billions Jennfier needs to get comb her hair, it looks messy.

I don’t go out much b/c I am a stay at home mom. My son has autism is in the IBI program which is done in our home. I have to be home when he does his sessions. I usually have my hair in a bun. But, when I do go out, I like to be all done up. It usually takes me about an hour to get ready. (including a shower.) I have long hair, so I like to put Dove’s long and smooth creme in my hair after I wash it. It really helps in keeping my hair smooth after I use a flat iron on my hair. If I don’t it will eventually become tangled and a bit poofy.

My best trick when running late is hand dry your hair, grab the front top and twist it with a pin and “bang!you have the Gwen Stafani look!”

When my blonde hair looks a little oily and there is no time to wash it, I just pull it back into a messy bun and blot loose face powder onto the roots. This technique also works when in between highlights, because it subtly lightens the roots as well.

no offense, but jennifer’s hair isn’t all that great….i can get mine to look twice as good, and i’m sure she didn’t just wash and go with that look. it just usually looks a mess when she leaves it down. i like to slick my hair into a chignon bun

I have very curly hair, so if I sleep on it and don’t feel up to a wash and style in the morning, I do two quick french braids. I let them down immediately, and after some product, I end up with perfect waves instead of my curls!

Ever since cutting my long hair into a chin-length bob, it’s been harder to wake up and go. Then my hairdresser got me into Bumble and Bumble’s Tonic and their Thickening Spray, and it changed everything about how I do my hair! The Thickening Spray gives me great volume at my roots and the Tonic is a great all-over spray lotion that reinvigorates my hair, whether I’m trying to maintain a blow-out or my own styling. And they smell great!!

The Chi flatiron is my savior!

A quick hairstyle for me is just putting my hair up in a simple ponytail. Whether I put it up high or low. I then add a cute, stylish head band to make it professional. Depending on the mood I’m in, I might even add a little bump on the top to give my hair some more volume!

Bailey S on

I always let my hair air dry, it gives it such a softer look. I wash my hair at night so I don’t go to work with wet hair, that would be so unprofessional! I really don’t think J. Aniston took any time to get this look. I wish she would drop off the scene! She will never be anything but Rachel. I know so many people are Angelina haters, but Jennifer somebody call the WHAMBULANCE!!!
