Whether or not you’ve ever even heard the name Chris McMillan, chances are your life has been touched by his work.
Chris has been cutting hair for over three decades. He is the creator of The Rachel—the cut from the TV show Friends that defined the 1990s. He’s also the mastermind behind the sexy, beachy wavy look that is currently ubiquitous on every red carpet. When Kim Kardashian got engaged, it was Chris she wanted to do her hair for the big day. When a certain rock star wanted a whole new image to shake the foundation, she called Chris—and Miley Cyrus’ new look was born.
Chris is pure California—he was born in Huntington Beach and never truly left Southern California. In 2002, The Chris McMillan Salon opened in Beverly Hills. And those signature styles, those sexy, laidback looks that he picked up from a lifetime on the beach—have made him the most celebrated hairstylist in the country and the favorite of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Cindy Crawford, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Hilary Swank, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, Olivia Wilde, Sarah-Jessica Parker, Diane Lane, Jennifer Garner, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts… the list goes on.
Chris has been a columnist for Allure magazine for more than a decade, His work has appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle, W, InStyle and most every fashion and beauty magazine published today. But at the end of the day, it’s the clients at the salon—and his three Jack Russell terriers—that have always been his true passion.
Our notable assignments include styling major products and fashion commercials for the likes of Aveno and Smart Water, and music videos for artists such as Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson. We maintain a large celebrity client base within the salon, ranging from current musicians, through to screen and sport icons. However many of clients prefer to remain confidential, allowing them to truly relax and let their hair down whilst in the salon.
At Chris McMillan the Salon, our award-winning hair stylists and color technicians are recognized as being some of the top creative talents in the field of celebrity style and luxury hairdressing.
From fashion show to magazine shoots, each stylist has been selected for their individual chic, and their unique ability to translate their knowledge and experience into a hairstyle or hair color or Brazilian Blowout which is tailored directly to you.
Classic or cutting edge, male or female, our modern and relaxed approach to unisex hair will make you feel a part of Los Angeles’ elite. Come in for a blow-dry, or a complete hair color change, and hair restyle. Whatever you chose, one thing is certain you will be welcomed as an old friend.
