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!”
