Jennifer Aniston’s longtime stylist, Chris McMillan, shared the secret to her voluminous silky blowouts.
He said the Ibiza Hair Professional Boar Hair Brush “always delivers.”
The brush grabs hair and lifts roots effortlessly, and reviewers love it.
We’ve all wondered how Jennifer Aniston always has perfect hair. And although she now credits her everyday effortless look to her haircare line, LolaVie, the Morning Show star still loves a good professional blowout done by her long-time stylist, Chris McMillan. And believe it or not, his secret to a voluminous, shiny result is no serum or spray—it’s the Ibiza Hair Professional Boar Hair Brush.
In posting a recent throwback photo of Aniston, McMillan shared how he achieves her “full but straight” blowout. Beginning at the nape of the neck, he applies the heat to small sections of freshly washed, towel-dried hair, re-wetting with a water bottle if needed, and adding no additional product “so the blowout lasts.”
“The large @ibizahairtools brush always delivers,” he wrote. “Keep it simple, over direct, and the key is to really lift and dry the roots.”
If you’re finding it hard to believe a salon-perfect shine is really that simple, so are we. But reviewers back up McMillan’s Ibiza brush hype. “Great brush! Grabs your hair without tangling it—it’s lightweight and strong,” one Amazon shopper writes. “This will give you a salon silky blow dry! I wish I’d known this sooner!” another adds. “The best brush ever,” another raves. “No pull, great volume.”
It may be difficult to justify paying between $40 and $50 for a hairbrush (depending on size—it’s available in B2, B3, and B4), but it’s actually affordable in comparison to other salon-level boar hair tools. Plus, the cork handle is ergonomic, flexible, and easy to grip, and its overall light weight makes it easy to handle even through the thickest of manes.
When Aniston isn’t in the salon chair, her hair routine is pretty low maintenance. She simply shampoos, spritzes in LolaVie’s Glossing Detangler, smoothes her knots with a Wet Brush, and rubs in some Perfecting Leave-In Conditioner, according to a recent Instagram tutorial.
“The biggest thing I’ve learned over the years from my stylists is to protect! We put our hair through so much damage—dyeing your hair, straighteners, curling irons, everything over time has an effect,” she recently told British Vogue. “That’s why it’s essential to use products that protect every step of the way.”
