Can You Afford to Look Like Jennifer Aniston?

Jennifer Aniston's Hair
Aniston usually gets her hair cut by celebrity stylist Chris McMillan, who owns Chris McMillan The Salon in Beverly Hills, Calif. and co-owns McMillan Canale Salon in Malibu, Calif. with Aniston's colorist Michael Canale. A haircut at the salon will generally cost about $200 to $350, but with McMillan himself it's $600. Pretty steep, but he is the creator of "The Rachel." For highlights, Canale's rates start at $320. So a day at the salon for Aniston (who is rumored to go religiously every six weeks) will cost at least $920 -- before tips.
At home, Aniston mostly uses Chris McMillan products. His starter kit, which includes shampoo, conditioner, and repair mask, is a shockingly affordable $29.95.  
Jennifer Aniston's Skin Care
Aniston uses a pretty wide variety of products on her skin. She's said that her long-time favorite cleanser is the Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar, $3.45, and also says she uses Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, $47. But here's the ringer: Before award shows and red carpet appearances, she also visits the Tracie Martyn Spa for Martyn's signature Red Carpet Facial. This treatment costs $450 and clients typically leave with her "Famous Purple Bag" of at-home products, which costs $391.50. This puts Aniston's estimated skin care total at $891.95 if she gets one facial a month.

Jennifer Aniston's Makeup

Obviously, Aniston's makeup look changes often, so we decided to just pick one as an example. Below we've listed the products Aniston's regular makeup artist, Angela Levin, used on her for a "Harper's Bazaar" cover shoot. Since the look is a pretty typical one for Aniston, it's a good guideline if you want to copy her makeup.
Jennifer Aniston's Eyebrows
Aniston has had brow guru Anastasia Soare shaping her brows for years. A session with Soare herself costs $120 for the first visit and $80 after that. The salon says some people come in every week for touch-ups, while others only come every month or two months; it depends on how fast your brows grow and how picky you are about them.
 Jennifer Aniston's Nose
While rumors have circulated about a possible boob job (which we doubt), Aniston's only confirmed plastic surgeries are her two nose jobs. Her "reason" for these was a deviated septum, which may be true, but there's no denying her nose changed shape after each one. Dr. Raj Kanodia, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Calif., was the surgeon for her second rhinoplasty. While he wouldn't reveal what Aniston paid, he did say the average nose job runs between $9,000 and $12,000. Times two puts her plastic surgery tab at about $18,000.

Jennifer Aniston's Spray Tan
As you may have guessed, Aniston doesn't come by that golden skin tone naturally. She's been spotted coming out of the Ibiza Tanning Salon in West Hollywood, Calif., where an airbrush tan runs $45. The salon recommends coming in every two weeks to maintain your glow.
Jennifer Aniston's Body
Aniston meets with personal trainer/yoga guru Mandy Ingber three times a week for about an hour one-on-one. They do a mix of cardio and yoga and Aniston raves about these workouts: "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. … I feel like I am getting a meditation, a workout, and time with my friend, all rolled into one hour."
Ingber says her rates are confidential, but Scott White, author of "Celebrity Personal Trainers," says that many celebrity trainers charge upwards of $300 an hour. Using this estimate, Aniston's weekly fitness costs would be about $900. (If you want to try Ingber's routine at home, her DVD only costs $14.95 -- but we doubt you'll get the same "time with a friend" feeling from the TV screen as you do in person.)

Jennifer Aniston's Diet

Aniston works with dietician Carrie Wiatt, R.D. While Wiatt wouldn't disclose the exact diet that Aniston is on, we can tell you that a consultation with Wiatt is $300 and one week's worth of her pre-made healthy meals is $385. So if you wanted to emulate Aniston's diet for even a week, you'd be looking at dropping around $685. 

And the grand total is ...

As I'm sure you've gathered by now, it costs quite a bit to look like Jennifer Aniston. Here's the ballpark breakdown of what she spends each month to look as good as she does:
Her hair (cut, color, and products): $949.95
Her skin care (products and one facial): $891.95
Her makeup (products and artist's fee for one day): $4,402
Her brows: $160
Her spray tan: $90
Her fitness routine: $3,600
Her diet: $1,840
And the grand total is: $11,933.90
If you have a (ahem) deviated septum to worry about, tack at least $5,000 onto this for a one-shot nose job. Shocked at the figure, we decided to take it a little farther and figure out how much it'd cost to maintain Aniston's look for a year. Are you ready? You're lookin' at around $141,037.97.
So the next time you're sighing over a photo of Aniston's face/legs/butt/whatever, consider that with the money she spends to look beautiful for a year, you could: purchase a home in the Midwest, send a kid to college for (almost) four years, buy six Honda Accords, or fly roundtrip from Los Angeles to New York -- in first class -- 44 times! Kinda puts things in perspective, right?
