Washington (ANI): Despite many ups and downs in her life, actress Jennifer Aniston has managed to maintain her sexiness and success, and here are the top five secrets that keep her going strong. The first secret to 41-year-old Aniston's good looks is her hair, which had consisted of medium brown curls, until she turned to world-renowned colourist Michael Canale.
Canale popped the front up with highlights, while uber-stylist Chris McMillan played around with his scissors in what was to become "The Rachel", and she has ever since been considered a Hollywood hair icon. "We then moved her into the caramel girl, then the golden girl and now she's sandy beige blonde," Fox News quoted Canale as saying. "Jen's just so comfortable in her skin, that's why everyone is so interested in her - and I think her sandy look right now is the prettiest of them all. It's the hardest to keep, but the sun can usually keep it vibrant," he stated.
The second secret are her brows, which have been plucked by the same woman for over a decade, Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills. "I have been doing this a very long time, most of the A-List celebrities today were my clients when they were auditioning years ago still trying to get a break," Soare said.
"In Hollywood image is everything, and stars are a brand. People look to them for the best in brows, hair, makeup, clothing and jewellery. Brows are just as important to framing the face and balancing your features as any eye shadow, and one cannot be done without the other, that's why I always consider brows part of your beauty ritual.
"The right brows always should start with more. Don't tweeze your brows daily and expect a makeover when you walk into a salon as you might not have enough to work with. Choose a brow shape that compliments your face, and a colour that is balanced with your hair and skin tone. Even if you make your hair pink, your brows should always maintain a natural hue to compliment and balance your face," Soare explained.
The third secret is the way she maintains her tight and toned body, brought about by L.A-based "Yogalosophy" creator Mandy Ingber, who Aniston has been having private sessions with for the past six-and-a-half years. When I started doing yoga with Mandy, I noticed many things. My legs getting leaner. My arms getting stronger, and most importantly, I noticed an inner strength," Aniston wrote as a testimonial on Ingber's website.
"Mandy's yoga is unique, because she allows the student to discover what 'yoga' is and means to them. I feel like I am getting a meditation, a workout, and time with my friend, all rolled into one hour," she had stated. Ingber's approach isn't targeted toward dramatically transforming one's figure, and instead encourages her students not to wait for perfection to love their body.
The fourth secret is the way Aniston keeps her face silky smooth and seemingly flawless just by using a plain old bar of Neutrogena soap. Aniston uses the brand's famous transparent "Amber Bar", a beauty staple since the 1950s, which "gently cleanses the skin and returns it to its natural pH level just minutes after washing".
The star started using the soap as a teenager, and once again, and she has stayed true to the product that she has been using even before her days of fame. The fifth secret to her success, is consulting with an Intuitive Life Strategist like Suzannah Galland. "I have a very powerful, even laser-sharp intuition. I've had it all my life," Galland explained.
"I can sit with a person and, almost as if I'm taking their temperature, give an accurate reading as to what most concerns them, and the likely outcomes. I help my clients make plans, or see what the people they're involved with are planning for them. I help a person clear a path in their life. What they [celebrity clients] are looking for is someone to trust. Because they're on top, everybody around them is agreeing with them - they've forgotten how to access their own instincts."
"Their problems are very different from what most people face. Their fears of failure are also more intense than most other people's. After all, having attained such heights, they have farther to fall. How might they renew themselves, do more, regain a trust in their own impulses to excel and surpass? I strive at all times to be truthful - to be that voice that gives strength to the intuitive good judgment that is already there inside them, but which has been buried by the fog of being famous," Galland added.
