From there, McMillan, alongside Aniston’s colorist Michael Canalé, helped the star whip through a number of styles characterized by face-framing layers, lush, yet imperfect waves, and sun-kissed golden highlights. At present, Aniston’s famous mane is as shiny, silky-smooth, and healthy as ever, and in honor of her 52nd birthday today, her go-to pros are helping to break down the secrets behind her famous lengths.
Aniston’s signature beachy golden blonde may look effortless, but there’s a lot of meticulous, time-honored work that’s gone into achieving and maintaining it. For nearly 30 years, colorist Michael Canalé has been tending to her tresses, weaving eye-brightening highlights into honey-brown waves for that California girl feel. “Jen’s the original bronde,” says Canalé, who slowly brought Aniston from her natural brunette to a golden blonde before adding those back-from-the-beach highlights. “Over time, you can see that I sanded out her hairline, making it brighter to bring out her eyes and warm complexion,” he explains. To recreate a similar look with your colorist, he recommends steadily going bronde, which typically suits honey-toned hair and warm skin tones, before going full-throttle blonde.
Once you’ve achieved a solid base, use “color bathe” (as Canalé calls it) to create dimension. “As you add highlights, you deepen the root,” he explains of the technique. “It’s not so much shadowing, as it is adding a ‘glisten’ look at the root that goes into the bright ends.” To preserve color and give the blonde tones a boost, a gloss treatment, like Aniston’s go-to Canalé Midnight Blue Signature Gloss, is essential. “It keeps the hair really shiny and seals the color, while keeping the pieces around the face light and vibrant,” he explains.
