Inseparable from her character in “Friends”, the haircut “The Rachel” worn by Jennifer Aniston in the 90s has entered the legend of pop culture. The hairdresser returns to the origin of this hairstyle and reveals the essential accessory to recreate it.
We knew Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox linked by a long-standing friendship. The two actresses also share the same hairdresser: Chris McMillan. On a recent Instagram post, the hairstylist unveils a twisted Courteney Cox selfie – round brush stuck in the hair. Signed “Ibiza B5 Cork”, this styling accessory is part of the essentials of the expert who explains in an article published on “Allure” in 2016: “It’s the perfect size for a brush, big enough to create volume, but not too much to form undulations. Best volume ever.
The Instagram account of Chris McMillan is punctuated by many clichés on which he publishes hairstyles of Jennifer Aniston which he is the author. Much more than a professional story, it’s a “hair romance” that is tied up between the two. And for good reason, if Jennifer Aniston has gained worldwide popularity with her character Rachel Green in “Friends”, it’s also thanks to its iconic haircut. A style that is all the rage in the 90s to the point of being called “The Rachel”. Chris McMillan is behind this series hairstyle.
THE GENESIS OF THE RACHEL GREEN CUP
In the first episodes of “Friends,” Jennifer Aniston appears with medium-length wavy hair. Then, his style evolves over season 1. Chris McMillan explains to the “Telegraph” in 2016: “I created the cup” The Rachel “when I met Jennifer, there are more than twenty years […] We were friends At that time, Jennifer had long hair with a bangs […] I suggested that she let her bangs grow and add a few strands, just to try something different. We cut the lengths by including different gradients to melt them to the bangs – and the rest went down in history. ” The actress will admit much later that this cut asked him a lot of maintenance. Outside the film sets, she will be unable to recreate it. The hairdresser concedes that this iconic cut required many retouches to the tips to maintain the gradient. And to specify that one must bring a good round brush to define well the hairstyle. The easy thing with his “Ibiza B5 Cork”?
