Jennifer Lopez is a famous celebrity that women from all over the globe look up to for her incredible fashion sense. But apart from her excellent taste for fashion, Jennifer Lopez also has some of the best sexy hairstyles in Hollywood. Her hair is a big part of her entire ensemble and she always rocks beautiful hair, whether she is shooting a music video or appearing on the red carpet. If you are looking for a classic hairstyle inspiration that will have a lasting impact (despite the existing trends), you can take cues from some of her best hairstyles throughout the years.
Straight Long Bob
This long bob hairstyle definitely gives Jennifer Lopez’ aura a fresh and younger take. Thus, you can opt for this hairstyle if you are looking to take a few years off of your age. To create this look, shampoo and condition as usual. Then, add a styling creme before combing to ensure even distribution. Use a flat paddle brush to blow dry your hair and make sure to point the blow drying on the ends. Whip out your hair straightener but use the lowest setting of heat. Divide hair into three sections and work with each section at a time. Finish off with shine serum for a vibrant look.
Relaxed but Romantic Updo
This hairstyle is ideal for a glam event yet there is a romantic and relaxed vibe to it that you can also wear it on some other occasion. Start by pinning the upper half of your hair to give you some room to work on the lower half. You must form loose curls with the aid of a curling iron. You can also use your fingers to create a somewhat messy vibe to this look. Then, release the upper half of the hair that you had pinned earlier. Start curling those too. When you are done, start to separate hair into sections and then twist them before securing with a bobby pin. Make sure all sections are secured with a bobby pin. When you are done, pull out some sections of hair to give it a loose slack. You can even leave some to fall freely on the sides of your face.
Sleek Top Knot
If you want a sleek look, this top knot is the hairstyle for you. You can create this hairstyle by bringing all of your hair together in one and then tying it upwards to form a bun. You can add a shine serum to help achieve a glossy finish to the hairstyle or styling mousse to keep the strands well behaved. Finish it off with a blow dry for more sleekness.
Extra Voluminous Waves
A bountiful and rich curl is one of the most dramatic ways to style your hair. If you pair it with smokey eyes and glossy lips, you are sure to stun at an evening gathering.
To recreate this hairstyle, start by applying a styling gel onto your hair. Make sure to ran the product throughout your hair and then blow dry. Use a flat brush to shape your hair as you blow dry it. If you have naturally fine hair, you can opt to use a clip-in hair extension for more length and volume. Take out a medium sized curling iron for creating these voluminous waves on your hair. Wait for the hair to cool down before brushing it out to create the retro effect (if you want). If not, then leave hair as is. Finish off a medium to strong hold hairspray to keep the waves intact for several hours.
Straight with Wavy Ends
This is a versatile hairstyle that adds a touch of chic into any look. This is also a great option for those who are looking to liven up their naturally straight hair or are bored with sporting the same look over and over again.
Take out your blow dry and start blow drying your hair. Make sure to apply your choice of styling product (either a styling creme, gel or mousse) before you do. If your hair is naturally frizzy, make sure to use an anti-frizz treatment when blow drying to keep the strands well behaved.
At this point, you need to use a flat iron to smoothen out the hair strands. Wait for hair to cool down before using the curling iron to start curling the part where you want to add the waves. To create curls that look natural, alternate the direction of the curls as it looks more finished and organic. Lightly mist the ends with a finishing spray to give it hold and definition.
Medium Length with Waves
Who says that only long hair can be styled to look beautiful? Jennifer Lopez showcases a medium-length hair that comes with lots of waves in the ends to make it look sexy but sassy.
You can create this look by starting off with freshly washed hair. Add volumising mousse onto damp hair. When you are done, mist a texturising spray onto the hair to help prep it for creating waves. Then, flip hair upside down while blow drying with a diffuser. Use a small round brush to work on each section of hair. Then, use a 3/4-inch curling iron and wrap your hair (at least 1-inch section at a time) starting from the mid-shaft and working all the way to the ends. If you want a rough texture to this hairstyle, try curling the hair towards different direction. Use your hands to break up the curls for a tousled look.
Layered Straight Hair
This layered straight hairstyle is perfect for women with naturally fine hair but aspire to achieve volume and body. It is also highly versatile because you can create a wide range of looks based on the length and the layering process. It is therefore important to discuss the specific kind of layering you want to achieve with your hairstylist prior to cutting.
