Kim Kardashian West's hair is "part of her identity", according to Chris McMillan.

The hairstylist - who is responsible for creating the "Rachel" haircut made popular by his pal Jennifer Aniston in 'Friends' - has opened up about working with the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star and insists he's never had to use extensions because her natural hair is a great base to work with.

He said: "Kim's long, gorgeous hair is part of her identity."

Chris added: "Kim's natural texture is so thick and wavy. Instead of fighting it, I like to go with it, keeping everything soft, easy and understated."

The celebrity stylist was on hand to style Kim's stunning half-up, half-down hairdo at her nuptials to Kanye West - with whom she has 19-month-old daughter North - in Florence, Italy last year and confessed he's proud she is still re-creating the look herself.

Writing in his column for the February issue of Allure magazine, he said: "A wedding is not the time to do anything trendy. I teased her crown, parted her hair down the middle, and pulled two small sections straight back. This style has sort of become her go-to look since the wedding."

Chris also revealed he managed to smooth her tousled waves into a single braid in just six minutes in Paris during the run up to her wedding despite being allotted ten minutes.
