Trendsetters/A-List Hollywood Land W hat with owning two star-studded California-based salons, freelancing for magazine editorials, commercials and films, plus playing an integral role in product powerhouse Living Proof, you'd think Chris McMillan had his hands full. Yet the creator of the infamous "Rachel" cut, popularized by longtime friend and client Jennifer Aniston, has all the time in the world when it comes to doing what he loves most-hair. "In high school, I had a friend named Sharon whose mom was a hairdresser," recalls McMillan of the moment he fell for the craft. "When I was in 10th grade, Sharon left for Christmas break wearing bell-bottoms with Farrah Fawcett-like hair. After the holidays, she came back with her hair in a permed bob and wearing skinny jeans. She went from Farrah to Debbie Harry in only two weeks! This was just about the most amazing thing I had ever seen. Sharon and I then went to beauty school together, and I worked in her mom's salon." Living Proof Celebrity Hairstylist Chris McMillan's biggest piece of advice: "Show up on time." More A-List 'Dos One of Hollywood's most sought-after stylists, Chris McMillan, dishes on his favorite looks with Launchpad's Alyson Osterman-Kerr. "I love this look on Natalie. It's a perfect combination of a classic French twist and a modern updo." Michelle Williams, Academy Awards, 2011 78 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2013 "I loved cutting Jen's hair into a bob. Even though this wasn't her favorite look, we loved trying something fresh and different. It was risky and we had a fun time doing it!" Natalie Portman, Vanity Fair Oscar Party, 2013 "THIS IS THE INITIAL PIXIE I CUT FOR MICHELLE-I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS LOOK ON HER. IT IS THE BEST SHORT HAIR OF ALL TIME! SHE WEARS IT SO WELL AND KNOWS EXACTLY HOW TO STYLE IT." "This is one of my all-time favorite cuts, and it was so much fun to do. We took Miley from her long mermaid hair to a style that represents who she is right now-sort of a chic-fashionpunk-rock girl look." Miley Cyrus, MTV Video Music Awards, 2012 Jennifer Aniston, Horrible Bosses Hollywood premiere, 2011 "BOTH OF THESE COVERS WERE SO MUCH FUN FOR ME. WE TRIED [CLIPIN] BANGS ON BOTH KIM AND LAUREN FOR THE COVERS, AND BOTH OF THEM ENDED UP ACTUALLY GETTING BANGS AFTERWARD!"
