Is there anything Jennifer Lopez can’t do? JLo is best known for her music, acting, and dancing, and you can now add hairstyle icon to the list. Jennifer Lopez’s hair in 2016 has gone viral, and everyone wants to know what her secrets are. A trendsetter for hairstyles across the world, Jennifer Lopez’s ever changing hairstyles have quickly made her a style sensation. Lopez’s hair color always seems flawless, with the contrast between dark and light highlights giving her hair color a natural depth. Each style she wears is always flattering, whether it is a sleek top knot or textured waves—she seems to always get it right.

So, what is Jennifer Lopez’s beautiful hair secret? JLo’s hair color for 2016 has changed with the seasons; she tends to go lighter, with a blonde look in the summer, and darker in the winter. However, the hair color formula stays true to keeping the darker base within two shades of her natural hair color. To achieve this beautiful highlighted combination, JLo’s hair stylist adds the color in stages. This gives the color a more natural, layered appearance, without looking overdone. Deeply hydrating shampoo and conditioner, as well as oil based deep treatments, are what help Lopez achieve picture perfect hair after all of the styling. Lopez is a spokesperson for L’Oréal hair products, including EverPure Hair Care and Preference Hair Color. She is also the face of Sublime Mousse, and credits these products for keeping her long luscious locks healthy and beautiful.

Jennifer Lopez’s hairstyles in 2016 have fans attempting to recreate some of her most iconic looks. Lopez is usually known for her beautiful flowing hair, but when she decided to try a new haircut—a shoulder length bob—she showed that there isn’t a single style she can’t pull off. She styled her short hairstyle with loose waves and a soft sweeping fringe to frame her beautiful face. Her braided hairstyles have also been making waves among fans of Lopez’s hair. Whether it was a textured crown braid or a sleek braid bun, these beautiful up-do’s have fans in awe. Her most famous braid is what she wore in her video for “Feel the Light.” This style involved a massive, intricately braided hairstyle that wrapped around the top of her head and hung down the length of her back. When Lopez wants to look sleek and polished, she opts for a long straight hairstyle, as seen when she performed alongside Marc Anthony at the Latin Grammys. While performing, Lopez uses hair extensions to amp up the volume and give extra texture to her long, flowing hair.

All I Have

With her new show, All I Have—which premiered back in January at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas—Jennifer Lopez’s hair is back to the traditional JLo style. Long, golden, honey-touched hair extensions create the perfect voluminous hairstyle to be swept around while she performs on stage. For those who prefer her hair up, she does change styles throughout the show, slowing the show down singing a ballad with her hair tied up in a tight bun, all while wearing a gorgeous oversized lavender Zuhair Murad gown. It doesn’t seem to matter if Lopez is on stage in Vegas, or off duty, her hair is always picture perfect. This is why she has become a hair icon for 2016!
