Jennifer Aniston's hair is always news, recently going blonde to brown, although the photo of the braid, linked below, shows Aniston back to her highlighted blonde hue. Jennifer Lawrence made braids chic again, and Aniston is jumping on that beauty trend bandwagon. The 45-year-old, voted by Men’s Health as the “Sexiest Woman of All Time,” is generally spotted hair down. However, the “We’re the Millers” star posed for a selfie with a very boho-chic side fishtail braid, as reported earlier this weekend by Us Weekly in its weekend roundup beauty guide. The famed creator of “The Rachael” and Jennifer Aniston’s Living Proof partner, Chris McMillan, posted a photo of his work on Instagram captioned by, “#jenniferaniston #braid #fishtail #summer-hair #unplugged @livingproofinc #lovethisgirl.”

The Hair Care Examiner has repeatedly written about braids as one of the hottest hair trends for any age, as braids could be a convenient way to conceal gray hair in between touch-ups. To get a side fishtail braid similar to Jennifer Aniston, start with dry hair and pull it to one side, whichever you prefer. You could either secure the hair in a side ponytail with an elastic band or ribbon and only braid the bottom, or braid the entire length of the hair and secure the end. Braid tip: Keep gel or pomade on the hands as you braid to tame flyaway stands.

Divide the hair into two sections. Begin with either and take the farthest piece of hair, a small strand, and cross it over and add it to the opposite section. Do the same on the next section of hair and pull tightly. Repeat, bringing all of the pieces to the center of the braid. Secure the bottom and spray to finish, and voila, you have a similar trendy fishtail braid hairstyle to Jennifer Aniston.
