Celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan is probably best known for creating 'The Rachel', Jennifer Aniston's iconic haircut in hit TV show Friends.

But the hairdresser, who is still great friends with Jennifer, favours a different look on the star.

"I actually like when she pulls her hair back when she's putting her make-up on," he told US Weekly.

"That's my favourite hairstyle. I'm like, 'Oh my gosh! You look so pretty. Look at you.'"

Speaking about their close friendship, Chris, who was attending the Marie Claire's Image Maker Awards, revealed that it comes down to putting her at ease.

"It's not about me, it's about making her feel comfortable," he said. "Doing this [being an actress and celebrity] is not easy. I'm getting a feeling of what she goes through being here. I would be a nervous wreck if this was part of my job."

Chris was awarded the Icon: Hair Stylist prize and Jennifer got on stage to present the award to him.

"All I can say is that Chris does friendship, Chris does kindness and Chris does hair like no one I've ever met in my life," she said.

"It is my great pleasure to give this acknowledgement to the man I'd be lost in the woods without, and I'd actually look like I was lost in the woods without and it would not be pretty.

"The magical, the beautiful, the iconic, my dearest, Chris McMillan."
