On and off the beach, Jennifer Aniston is serving up year-round easy, tousled waves. As her hairstylist Chris McMillan once told Vogue, “Jen doesn’t like a manufactured curl.” True to form, there was nothing over-thought about the born-and-bred Californian’s beauty strategy for her latest beach outing. In a new Instagram selfie, the star soaked up the sun wearing a stylish, face-shielding straw hat on top of a cascade of salty, air-dried strands.
Whether they were au naturale by way of a dip in the ocean or finessed with help from Aniston’s hair care line Lolavie (if the latter, we suspect it’s the handiwork of a few spritzes of her Glossing Detangler and/or Perfecting Leave-In raked through the mid-lengths to ends), they stood as a reminder that there’s nothing more summery than lived-in, perfectly rumpled strands.
Only adding to the SoCal feel were her signature sun-kissed blonde highlights—the ones that earned her the unofficial title of “the original bronde” according to her colorist of over 30 years, Michael Canalé. Teaming laissez-faire texture with glowing golden color, Aniston’s signature California cool hair codes live their best life at the beach.
