Allure's August issue hit the stands recently, and you won't believe what they used to take the photos in one of the spreads. Hairstylist Chris McMillan took the photos for Allure on an iPhone 6. The 70s-style hairstyles he shot included a gorgeous, full head of curls, straight with blunt bangs and a bunch of different styles.
Mashable posted an article with some of the photos from the shoot, and you won't believe they were actually taken on an iPhone. One model wears a white fur coat and has mod dark hair with matching smoky eye makeup, and you'd swear the photo was taken at a professional photo shoot. Although it would have been easy to hire a professional photographer to take the photos, it's cool that Allure asked hair stylist McMillan to take the reins on this one. Not only is he an amazingly talented hair stylist, he's actually kind of the king of the Instagram selfie.
McMillan is best known for being Jennifer Aniston's stylist, so you know he's good. The actress' perfect "bronde" color and cut hasn't changed much over the years, but her hair always looks perfect thanks to McMillan, who's also one of her good friends. She regularly appears on his Instagram.
The hair stylist doesn't stop there. He also does Law and Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay's hair, and he posted an adorable selfie of the two recently. Her bob is also McMillan's handiwork.
McMillan also does the hair of one of Hargitay's biggest fans. He styled Taylor Swift for an issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and posted an Instagram of one of the outtakes from the shoot. (Tay named her cat Olivia Benson after Hargitay's SVU character.)
Of course, the king of the Instagram selfie also, naturally, does the hair of the queen of the Instagram selfie: Kim Kardashian, of course! McMillan also styles Kim for events and photo shoots. His feed is full of pictures of the celeb, including her Rolling Stone cover and look for the ESPY Awards.
McMillan clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to hair, but now we get to see his photography skills as well. Props to Allure for showing readers great photography can come from anywhere.
